About Chris Oliver

Chris Oliver

Married with four grown children and seven grandchildren. Moved around several parishes in England - a good way to explore this lovely country.

Contributing to and leading Bible Groups for over 20 years. Still finding the Bible becomes more and more fascinating the more one reads.

For these Bible groups a digest of thoughts from many different commentaries prompted more interesting discussions.

Please contact me if you think I may be of help with starting a bible-group: chris at chris-oliver.net

"Sunday Readings in Context" started when I realised I knew nothing about the first readings at Mass from the Old Testament, and often received little help towards making sense of them from the priest's homily. Few priests had studied the Old Testament before ordination. So I started contributing a short note to my parish newsletter - and it has grown ever since.

Now that the three-year cycle is complete, the notes can be consolidated into Ebooks. Six altogether, to appear every 6 months.

I hope you find them helpful. Revision of the notes will continue, so updated editions continue to appear every month or so during a book's season.

And in three years' time we start again!
