Praise for Fr. Donald Senior
 “If you’re looking to understand Jesus you could do no better than Donald Senior. One of the leading scholars on Jesus, and on the Gospels, Father Senior is a superb companion, teacher and spiritual guide, who will help you, in an accessible and inviting way, come to know both the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith.” – James Martin, S.J., author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
“Father Donald Senior is a leading expert on the Gospel of Matthew. No one is more qualified to explain its intricacies. Not only are his insights the fruit of technical expertise, but his reflections are pastorally sensitive and inviting. Now You Know Media has done a great service to produce these accessible, user-friendly resources. Highly recommended!” – Fr. Ronald D. Witherup, P.S.S.
“Whoever allows Donald Senior, C.P., to be their guide through the Gospel of Matthew is in for a wonderful experience. Having immersed himself in studying, teaching, and preaching this Gospel for decades, Fr. Senior both opens up the meaning of the text and leads one to embrace its transformative power for believers today.” – Sr. Barbara Reid, O.P., VP and Academic Dean at CTU

    Excellent!

    An excellent way to understand the importance of the Land in the development of the Chosen People and of Jesus’ Mission. Donald Senior presents with clarity and this presentation is enhanced with summary of points made and visual support on screen.

    The trip without the hassle

    My favorite in the last year has been Fr. Don Senior’s The Holy Land: A Pilgrimage. It felt like I took the trip without the hassle of travel.

    Paints pictures with his words

    The Rev. Donald Senior paints pictures with his words. It is easy to imagine you are there walking with Jesus. I am a very senior citizen who listens to CDs in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep.

    Well planned and delivered to the point

    For me, the tours of the Holy Land are a way to bring the actual situation to life in some way, especially for those who have not been there and have a hard time imagining the real life situation.

    I have purchased a Pilgrimage through the Footsteps of Jesus for the Adult Lenten Studies for our parishioners. They liked it and I found that they had many questions that we enjoyed discussing during the series. They are looking forward to the Lenten Series in 2018.
