The St. Jerome Biblical Guild propagates the study of Sacred Scripture with fidelity to Tradition and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. The apostolate takes its name from St. Jerome, “The Father of Biblical Studies,” and labors by God’s grace to accomplish the following: (1) explain the various Bible study tools and academic resources; for personal research, study clubs, or groups, (2) present studies from Scripture on specific books such as the Gospel of St. Luke, or general themes such as the Biblical basis for home-schooling, (3) promote the classic exegetical methods and insights within Catholic Tradition; with attention to the Church Fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas, and (4) teach and defend the key doctrines of Biblical inspiration and inerrancy; the latter the main focus of the Guild.

Time constraints prevent answering e-mail questions; the lone exception is for inquiries for speaking engagements. The site strives to be a modest repository of information on the Catholic Faith.

The St. Jerome Biblical Guild entrusts itself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Guild also seeks the intercession of St. Jean-Marie Vianney and St. Therese of Lisieux for favors and protection. In all things, the apostolate aims for the greater glory of God (cf. 1 Chr 28:9; Ps 37:5; Jer 9:23-24; Jn 15:5; Col 3:17; Jas 4:13-15).
