2008: Important Year For Biblical Studies

Two important events are coming up next year for Biblical studies:

1) Pope Benedict has announced that the theme for the 2008 World Synod of Bishops will be "The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church."

2) It has been proposed to Pope Benedict that from June 29, 2008 to June 29, 2009 be declared the Year of St. Paul.

Benedict has not made an official decision yet, but he was pleased with the proposal.

June 29 is the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

I will post more on the subject as more information comes out. In the meantime, Read Your Bible!

And for great and free! online Bible studies, check out the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology's website.
