Friar Ian Bremar began recently a blog called the Bible Codega: A Catholic guide for reading and enjoying Sacred Scripture. Here is what Friar Ian says "I am a Franciscan friar and am currently working on completing an MA in Pastoral Ministry. I have a love for Scripture and biblical studies and want to cultivate an interest in the Scriptures in others. While I do not consider myself an expert in biblical studies, I hope that by sharing what I have learned others may come to a deeper relationship with God through the words of Sacred Scripture." (Check out 'Truth, Mystery, the Bible, and ... Harry Potter?' and more recently 'Those Other Books: Where did the Bible come from? Part III')
