already written a lot of Bible studies that are organized thematically,” said Fr. Pacwa. “So we’re going to start off with my book, ‘Winning the Battle
Against Sin,’ which deals with Biblical teaching on sin and forgiveness. After
that, I’d like to counterbalance that with my Bible study called 'Saved,' which
tackles the theme of salvation. I’ve also done Bible studies on the life of
Christ. We’ll be taking his ministry step by step. Another approach I hope to
take is to study the individual books of the Bible, starting with Isaiah and
then Jeremiah and other books of the Bible.”
The weekly show debuted on March 6 at 2 p.m. ET with encores at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesdays and 9 a.m. ET on Wednesdays. Fr. Pacwa will discuss Scripture and early church documents that "illuminate the way we understand the Bible," said EWTN President Doug Keck, who helped create the show.
Fr. Pacwa is a prolific writer and holds a Ph.D. in Old Testament from Vanderbilt
University and Master of Divinity and Bachelor of Sacred Theology degrees from Loyola University Chicago. Fr. Pacwa previously taught Scripture
at Loyola Chicago as well as at the University of Dallas, and he currently serves as a Senior
Fellow at the St. Paul Institute for Biblical Studies.
three decades, Fr. Mitch Pacwa has been a favorite of EWTN audiences around
the globe,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw.
“I am confident our viewers will be excited about this new program, which
plays to Fr. Mitch’s strength as a Scripture scholar.”
