Wisdom Keepers: A Resource for Faith Sharing Among Seniors Not specifically a Bible study program but valuable to groups of older Catholics. Created in the Archdiocese of Louisville to assist ministry to seniors, the 46 themes presented in the 136 pages of this $8.95 book make a ready resource for Bible study and other small groups of seniors. Formatted to be used as the basis for meetings, with enough topics so participants are sure to find many that are of interest to the people in their group. Many biblical references. From St. Mary's Press, 1-800-533-8095.

The Catholic Youth Bible The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible is combined with more than 650 articles to address the real-life concerns and interests of today's Catholic young people. Includes eight reading plans intended to ease the walk through Scripture. Includes Q&A and "Live It!" boxes that make biblical lessons relevant to everyday life.

Several adults involved in youth ministry say they would recommend it for adults as well because it is so user-friendly and attractive--not the daunting pages of most Bibles, which are crammed with nothing but words. $27.95 in paperback, $37.95 hardcover, with discounts for groups. An easy-to-use program that uses The Catholic Youth Bible is "Scripture-Walk Senior High," which has eight 90-minute sessions, each of which includes a Bible study and discussion, a creative activity, and a prayer service.
