Greetings and Welcome! It is often acknowledged that Holy Scripture contains much wisdom. Yet for many, the Bible remains a closed book. Why? Each will have his own answer. Often, stumbling blocks and preconceived notions exist that prevent us from offering fair consideration of this holy text. For many, the teachings on this site have helped to open the door to a new world view. This site has been created with the hope that in satisfying your curiosity, you will explore more fully, discover truth, and through the revelation of his Word, be drawn to trust God more completely.

The Teachings
These teachings were originally delivered by Bishop John W. Howe when he was rector of Truro Episcopal Church in Fairfax, Virginia from 1976 to 1989, and in Central Florida from 1989 to 2012. Recently a new website called BibleBanquet.com has been created as a repository of his teachings. It was designed primarily for handheld devices but will be expanded soon to become desktop friendly as well. We invite you to visit.
