"Fr. Pacwa's Bible studies for Catholics have captivated parish study groups for years. ... Now in his new book, 'Mercy: a Bible study guide for Catholics,' Fr. Pacwa leads us to a deeper understanding of mercy through the study of Israel's long, slow struggle to experience it. By looking carefully at the Israelites' experience of turning away from and returning to God, we begin to understand that God's love, shown through his mercy, is more powerful than sin. Perfect for a parish small-group study, or for personal reflection, each of the six sessions in [this book] will help you rediscover the incredible history of God's mercy in your own life, which in turn will lead you to an understanding of the importance of extending God's love and mercy to the world around you."--Back cover.
