Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother is an eight part series on four DVDs presented by Dr. Edward Sri. Each session in this Mary program includes four steps to help you understand the material and take it to heart. In this program you will experience an extraordinary pilgrimage through Mary's life and see why she is an essential part of our faith. Guided by Dr. Edward Sri, you will journey through the biblical narrative of Mary's life and visit the places where key events in salvation history occurred. There, Dr. Sri will introduce you to the Blessed Mother on a personal level, showing how Scripture, history, and Jewish culture reveal the sorrows, anxieties, and joys Mary would have held in her heart. Disc One includes: Information Session (6 minutes); Session 1: Introduction (20 minutes); and Session 2: The Annunciation (25 minutes). This program is a powerful Bible study that reveals Mary's unique role in God's kingdom and in our lives. It is important that the steps be followed in order, as each step builds upon the previous one. 1. Home Preparation involves reading Scripture and answering a series of thought-provoking questions about the reading. Some questions require reading from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Home preparation takes about an hour per session. When done in small segments over several days, it helps you to build a habit of daily reading and meditations. Small-Group Discussion of the Study Set Questions is guided each week by trained facilitators who can use the Responses to help facilitate the discussion. The discussion should take about 40 minutes. The Video Presentation "crowns" each session, providing a deeper explanation of the topic, particularly as it applies to everyday life. Most of the presentations are 30 minutes. Review Responses: Included in the Study Set are detailed responses to the questions for you to review before moving on to the next session and to keep for a later reference. Note: Information about how to organize and facilitate your Bible study can be found in The Great Adventure Leader's Guide, Available at BibleStudyForCatholics.com as a free download. This program includes one three-ring binder and one set of four DVDs. 30 minutes
