The title Bible Alive captures eloquently our goal, purpose and mission. The Bible is living, active and therefore dynamic and alive (Hebrews 4:12). From the Bible we draw life, strength and power to live the Christian life. The directors of Alive Publishing and its editorial staff have known in their own lives, through the power of the Holy Spirit, the word of God coming alive in a real and dynamic way. Their experience rooted in many years of study and reflection is that immersing ourselves in the treasure which is Sacred Scripture is life changing and fundamental in living the Christian life. Bible Alive is a Catholic scripture magazine which draws its strength, inspiration and direction from the liturgical cycle. The essence of Bible Alive are the daily reflections. They are written in an accessible and warm style inviting the reader to penetrate and plumb the depths of the scripture reading of the day. The lead features cover a wide array of subjects, topics, profiles and interviews on matters relating to living the Christian faith today. The essays and teaching are drawn from the rich teaching of Vatican II, the Cathechism of the Catholic Church, the writings of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. Our saint profile affords us the opportunity to explore in depth and detail the life witness of either a beati, a canonized saint or a hero of faith.
