Come and See: Acts and Letters


How do the Letters of Saint Paul connect to the history of the Acts of the Apostles? What was the structure and governance of the ancient apostolic church? How should the Catholic Church interpret the difficult passages in Paul’s writing? Find the answers to these and many other questions in the pages of Acts and Letters in the popular Come and See: Catholic Bible Study Series. This study uses modern study tools—inductive and deductive learning, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings of popes and saints—to unlock an ancient treasure and show its current application.
