Product Description

The Bible in a Year Companion Guide walks Catholics through the award-winning podcast The Bible in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz), featuring daily summaries, transcriptions of Fr. Mike's daily prayers, and bonus information for each episode.

It's the ideal approach to recall what you're hearing while also learning more about each section of Scripture!

The Companion presents daily content for each episode of the podcast, including:

  • The proprietary Bible in a Year Reading Plan
  • Summary of the key points and highlights of Fr. Mike’s commentary on the daily readings
  • "Take It to Prayer", where Catholics will be able to pray the daily prayer alongside Fr. Mike and the rest of the BIAY community
  • Unique content surrounding each day’s readings, from images and Q&As to prayer prompts and ways to live out the Scriptures in real life
  • In addition to the daily content, each time period will have a Time Period Introduction and Review. Written by Jeff Cavins, these will help Catholics to know what to look for in the days ahead, and to recall what has happened in the days completed.

From Fr. Mike’s introduction: 

“I believe that this Bible in a Year Companion is a great tool to take you deeper. It is one thing to be exposed to the Story, but it is another to remember it. This Companion will help those who are so quick to forget—which is all of us! … In this world, where we are so tempted toward distraction and distress, we now have a resource to understand how the story of salvation unfolds and how we can fit into that story today.

“Now, we have a place to remember.”

Volume I of The Bible in a Year Companion covers Days 1–120 of The Bible in a Year podcast.

For Days 121–243, order Volume II here.

I love my copy which I got so I could start 2022 with it. I ordered one for my daughter and I am still waiting- probably a printing concern but disappointment enough to rate the delivery a 4 out of 5 stars.

Love it!!

Very helpful in understanding the passages in the bible
Potentially valuable

I bought this not quite realizing that it is only 1/3 of the series. I had already read days 1-120. Therefore, my plan is that once I complete the Bible in a Year, I will go back and reread the 120 days and see how this book aids my understanding. The concept is valuable, but I cannot practically comment on its actual value yet.
