Welcome to The Great Adventure!
This exciting study brings the Gospel to life and draws you closer to Christ. You will see Jesus as the awaited Messiah who fulfills the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament, establishes the New Law, and inaugurates the Kingdom of Heaven. Set in the rich context of Jesus’ life, Matthew shows us who Jesus is and what his life and teachings mean for us today.

“To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; to seek him, the greatest adventure.” – St. Augustine
The Bible is at the heart of our Catholic Faith—and our relationship with God. It is the living Word of God, where our Father meets with us and lovingly speaks to us. Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is not always easy. Many people tell us they have tried time and again to prayerfully read Scripture, but they get frustrated because they “just don’t get it.”
The Great Adventure is designed so that anyone can make sense of the Bible and experience the life-changing power of God’s Word. At the core of The Great Adventure is the concept that there is a story running through the seventy-three books of the Bible that ties all of Scripture together and makes sense not just of the Bible, but of our lives as well.
That story is God’s plan as it has unfolded throughout salvation history and continues to unfold today. Once we grasp this “big picture,” the readings at Mass begin to make more sense, our Scripture reading and study come to life, and we see how our lives fit into God’s loving plan.
Hundreds of thousands of participants have discovered the riches of Scripture by experiencing one or more Great Adventure Bible studies. It is our prayer that you will gain a newfound understanding of God’s Word that will transform your life and bring you closer to Christ.
At the core of The Great Adventure is The Bible Timeline Learning System: a simple way to get the “big picture” of the Bible by focusing on the story that runs throughout Sacred Scripture. Great Adventure Bible studies explore the biblical narrative in light of Catholic teaching and the historical, cultural, and literary context of the Scriptures to discover what Scripture reveals about God’s plan and our place within it. Studies of individual books of the Bible are supplemented by thematic and “life application” studies.
Every Great Adventure study is designed to foster:
• Familiarity with the Bible and ease of reading it
• Bible study habits consistent with the guidelines of the Catholic Church
• Personal engagement in the Word of God
• Faith sharing based on the Word of God
• Growth in knowledge about Scripture and the Catholic Faith
