WEST CHESTER, Penn., April 26, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Ascension Press is excited to announce the release of "The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation," Version 2.0.

Over the last eight years, hundreds of thousands of Catholics from all over the world have had their lives transformed by learning how to read and understand the Bible from a Catholic perspective. Now, this popular Catholic Bible study, part of "The Great Adventure" Catholic Bible Study Series, has been re-written, re-filmed, and revised. The new "Bible Timeline" follows the same proven format as the original series, but now includes a number of exciting enhancements.

"The Bible Timeline" has proven to be extremely successful in helping people read and appreciate Scripture. Using a unique color-coded system, "The Bible Timeline" focuses on fourteen narrative books of the Bible to reveal the central story woven throughout Scripture. By studying the story that unfolds from these fourteen books, students learn how the key people, places, and events of the Bible all fit together to reveal God's plan for humanity.

"'The new Bible Timeline' study follows this same proven format, but is now re-filmed in high definition and revised to include new theological insights and illustrations," says Jeff Cavins, co-author and presenter of the study. "We provide animated maps of ancient biblical journeys, definitions and spellings of unfamiliar words, classic art and contemporary images of well-known ancient biblical sites, as well as on-screen citations from Scripture, the Catechism, and more. We've really taken it to the next level and couldn't be more excited."

"'The Great Adventure' Bible studies are proving to be a tremendous blessing in our Archdiocese," says Kyle Neilson, from the Archdiocese of Vancouver’s Office of Religious Education. "Our leaders are thrilled with their easy-to-follow format which communicates the beauty of salvation history in a way that can be understood, remembered, and applied to life."

"We are excited about this initiative for the Church. The original 'Bible Timeline' yielded tremendous fruit in the lives of countless people, and now the new 'Bible Timeline' is even better," says Matthew Pinto, president of Ascension Press. "We believe the enhancements we have made to the videos and study materials will help participants to discover the profound riches the Bible offers them. When people see the amazing story of Scripture, the Bible comes alive for them, and they grow in their love and zeal for Jesus Christ and our Catholic Faith."

"The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation," Version 2.0 is available from Ascension Press at www.BibleStudyforCatholics.com, or by calling 1-800-376-0520.
