“The Crossways Bible survey course makes the Liturgy of the Word of Mass come alive for people as they get into Scripture and see the connections between the Old and New Testaments. Class participants radiate with enthusiasm as their hunger for learning is satisfied by this biblical study – the focus of which is Jesus Christ.”
Dr. William Danner

"I came to the Training Workshop to learn more about the Bible. I did! And now I want to learn even more! Great seminar! The materials are well written, colorful, and easy-to-follow. The presenter not only knows his material but teaches it in a clear and understandable manner. He helped make learning about the Bible fun and enjoyable.”
Ms. Jan Smed

"Our pastor [taught the class] and is grateful for the excellent resources that you provide. Participants were excited and thrilled with the wealth of information in The Bible’s Big Story and the Biblical Timeline. [The CI visuals] are very easy to follow, but most profound in content."
Ms. Rose Stegman

"I used See Through the Scriptures® and In Heaven’s Name, Why on Earth? for a summer course of six weeks. It turned out wonderfully! I am now teaching The Divine Drama® and my class loves it. [The CI visuals] seem to put things at eye level so you can understand what the stories are telling you. I truly enjoy CI's courses and hope to use them for a long time. My Divine Drama class already is talking about the Crossways course and using it one section a year. I can't wait to share the Bible's story."
Ms. Joni Jarstad

"The visual materials made the workshop easy to follow." "The materials are very interesting and unique, and give a wonderful summary in an innovative manner." "The presentation was fantastic, historically accurate and thought provoking." "It has been a reminder to me that I am a servant of God, and that I should do more for other people, including the poor."
Responses to a See Through the Scriptures® seminar, Members of St. Thomas Catholic Church, International Falls, MN

"We are using See Through the Scriptures with a Bible study group that meets on Thursday evenings. The class participants especially like the visuals, and if people miss a class they can easily study the materials at home because the visuals are also in the student manuals – really appreciate that continuity."
Father Stanley Nodolny
