Six new bible studies have just become available, inviting nurses and students to engage in dialogue with Jesus as we see him interact with people in the Bible.

“The studies are interactive,” Mary explained. “The user observes what is in the passage and engages in ongoing reflection about this content, with prayer throughout the study.”
“Follow Jesus in his interaction with people facing different challenges, including death and grief, and learn from him about providing spiritual care in nursing. Consider ways that Jesus and his followers bring justice and hope to the nations,” Mary said.
