The Word Embodied

Kavanaugh, S. J.

God in the Quiet and the Chaos

Going under, despite our efforts, we finally turn our faces up more honestly, more in faith, to the one who carries us. Ebbing powers and promise do not signal the end.


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

Fishing, Storms, and Faith

“You of little faith, why did you doubt?” The biblical term “faith” is best rendered “loyalty.” Patrons will never fail clients who are loyal to them.


Thoughts from the
Early Church


If you love God you will have power to walk upon the waters, and all the world’s swell and turmoil will remain beneath your feet. But if you love the world it will surely engulf you.


Scripture In Depth

Reginald H. Fuller

The place of encounter with God is not in the awesome events of nature but in the word of revelation.
