Catholic Biblical School Book Lists & Recommended Summer Assignments
Current Catholic Biblical Students will find the following resources helpful as they
prepare for their courses. Once your classes begin, you will also be given access
to a password protected course page, where professors will post relevant documents,
including suggested answers and powerpoint presentations.
Below are recommended summer assignments in preparation to the beginning of class.
Summer assignments are not required to turn in. You will also find the book lists for each course, both for the full year and for
each module of the course. All Catholic Biblical School books can be purchased from
the University of Dallas Bookstore. Some of the books are exclusive to the UD CBS
program and may not be available for purchase elsewhere.
