Philadelphia archdiocese to host National Catholic Bible Conference

.- Top Biblical scholars from around the country will gather in Philadelphia to help Catholics learn how to apply Scripture to their lives.

This year, the annual National Catholic Bible Conference is designed to help Catholics understand Scripture, live it out and proclaim its message in the world.

From June 15-16, Jeff Cavins, Scott Hahn, Tim Gray, Edward Sri and many others will present talks related to the conference's theme “Scripture: A Roadmap for Living.”

"There's a common conception that," says Jeff Cavins, one of the conference hosts.

One of the conference hosts, Jeff Cavins said that the “common conception that  the Bible doesn't have a lot to say to us today” is “far from true.”

“Scripture is full of relevant, practical wisdom that provides direction and speaks to everyday situations. Through this conference, we hope to help Catholics uncover the riches the Bible has to offer and learn how to live out its wisdom."

The National Catholic Bible Conference will offer over 15 talks to “anyone who wants to learn an authentically Catholic approach to the Bible,” Matthew Pinto, president of Ascension Press said. "And for the first time ever, priests, deacons, seminarians, and religious can attend for free."

The 2012 National Catholic Bible Conference is sponsored by Ascension Press, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Augustine Institute, and Alpha.
