Praise for Michael Guinan
“I first attended a lecture by Father Guinan about 20 years ago and immediately recognized him as a great teacher. He brings top-notch scholarship, excellent delivery, and a strong pastoral sense to every project. Teaching in the Philippines has given him a very broad vision.”– Father Pat McCloskey, O.F.M.,  “Ask a Franciscan” columnist for St. Anthony Messenger
“Fr. Michael Guinan is a great communicator and one of those teachers who is able to assimilate a lot of material… and communicate it all in a concise, clear, and often humorous way. It is no wonder that he is a very popular teacher in the NYKM series.” – Fr. Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., Research Professor, Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University

  1. Aiden

    These inspired songs taught me how to speak to God.

    These inspired songs taught me how to speak to God, expressing myself and the whole range of my human experience with words that God himself has given to us.

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    By providing a framework for understanding the role of the Psalms through history and the use of the different types of Psalms, my appreciation of this book of the Bible was significantly deepened.
