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

2 reviews for The Bible 101: 12-Day Crash Course for Catholics

  1. Richard Charrette, London, ON, Canada

    *

    Fr. Guinan has given a very insightful understanding of the Book of Genesis, particularly of the first eleven chapters: What it means to be made in the image of God, how we overstep the bounds of creaturehood and God’s plan to redeem us. I have never seen anything better on that particular part of Scripture.

  2. Jeremy

    Exactly what I was looking forward to

    The program was exactly what I was looking forward to regarding how to think about the Bible from a Catholic perspective because it covered actual Church teaching on the matter rather than relying on scripture. Fr. Guinan provided good coverage of Church documents, particularly from Leo XIII forward.
