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

    Fr. Senior is one of the best English speaking Scripture scholars in the world.

    Fr. Senior is one of the best English speaking Scripture scholars in the world. And yet his presentation is simple and direct which makes it easy for persons with little scripture background to learn a lot.

  9. Sr. Phyllis

    Scholarly but very understandable!

    I used Fr. Don Senior’s ” Jesus of Scripture” as an adult ed class. It was scholarly but very understandable for those with minimal background.

  10. Elaine

    Jesus came alive to me in this course.

    Jesus came alive to me in this course. I love scripture and work in RCIA and I was able to play parts of this course for the Inquirers who think Catholics don’t know scripture.

  11. Dcn. Dennis

    Each time I listen to his presentations I learn something new!

    As a permanent Deacon I found the course to be fascinating and very informative. Rev. Donald Senior, C.P., S.T.D., is clearly a subject matter expert and an excellent presenter. Each time I listen to his presentations I learn something new!

  12. Sr Clare H., Indonesia

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    I really liked Donald Senior’s lectures on Jesus in the Gospels. They were inspiring as well as informative.

  13. Dcn James S., Canada

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    It was very insightful and well organized and beautifully delivered.

  14. Kenneth S., AZ

    Winter Survey: January 2017

  15. Dcn Mark C., AZ

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    Fr Senior is a a scholar, a pastor of the intellect and spirit, a most welcome companion/leader on my faith journey.

  16. (Sister) Marion C. M., NY

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    I have played some of this in my graduate course on the Synoptic Gospels. One of my students used it for a Scripture Study course in a parish. We regularly give an award for Scripture Studies at our graduation ceremony and for the pat several years this program has been the award.

  17. Marilane M., CO

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    Donald Senior has has a simple, unassuming, and relaxed presentation based on tremendous knowledge and lifelong study. He is easy to listen to and trustworthy. He is not presenting his own theories or hypotheses….

  18. Joe M., AL

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    Fr. Donald Senior is a superb presenter on identifying Jesus in the Scriptures through each of the Evangelists. He presents a very good image of Jesus and his teachings in a easy to understand way.

  19. Jeanine F., NM

    2017 Christmas Survey

    We used this program with a small group of adults and found great enthusiasm for the program as well as for our use of it. Donald Senior is confident before the camera and easy to watch. A couple other presenters have been less comfortable in their role.

  20. Al T., TX

    2017 Christmas Survey

    The Jesus of Scripture by Rev. Senior was very well presented and a great way to explore the life of Christ. Rev. Senior presents extremely well with his soothing voice and passionate expression. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to know more intimately all the vital aspects of Jesus.

  21. J. Clifton M., AL

    2018 Spring Survey

    It was informational and spiritually helpful. It helped my personal reflection and my preaching.

  22. William M., IA

    2018 Spring Survey

    The new literary critical approach to the Gospels emerged, treating them in a way that listeners don’t have to get overly caught up in the minutiae of history and sources, as fine as that method is. A truly honest and authentic treatment of the literary genre of Gospel as this will lead listeners into a deeper appreciation of the various portraits of Jesus in Matthew’s, Mark’s, Luke’s, and John’s presentations.

  23. Aimee F., MA

    Summer 2018 Survey

    His manner of speaking is very clear, pleasant, and understandable. The content is solid, and informative. I especially appreciated the art he feature and thought it enhanced his presentation. I hope you will have him give a retreat.
