Something powerful happens when we study the Mind of the Church. Familiar stories become richer, old truths more meaningful, and new discoveries change our lives. And at Verbum, we want you to experience that for yourself.
That’s why when we made Verbum 8, we challenged ourselves to create new ways for you to take the next step in your Catholic study, whether you’re a scholar or are just beginning to study the Church for yourself.
And that meant making Verbum easier to use than ever.
In Verbum 8, you’ll find step-by-step instructions for many approaches to Catholic study.
Choose your goal— like Lectio Divina, homily prep, or exegesis—and Verbum 8 lays out the books and tools to use each step along the way. We don’t just give you what you need, we explain how to use it.
Even if you know the steps you need to take in your study, you’ll appreciate Workflows. You’ll discover books and tools you didn’t even know you had, and perhaps most exciting, you can create your own workflow from scratch. You can even share your expertise by making that workflow public.
Clean, simple organization
From the moment you open Verbum 8, you’ll find clear ways to jump right into Catholic study. The redesigned Home Page provides quick links to your favorite workflows, reading plans, layouts, and other resources central to your study.
We’ve improved Notes, making it easier to organize your thoughts and capture insights on a biblical passage or resource.
The same goes for your books and documents. Whether you’re looking for that passage list on prayer you made three years ago or a solid commentary on Romans, you’ll find it in a few clicks thanks to Verbum 8’s clean, simple organization.
A new way to visualize biblical truth
Everybody has their favorite way to work the biblical text. Some highlight, others underline and circle, and some take notes. Others go the extra mile and diagram sentences and do detailed outlines of the passage.
Whatever your style, with Canvas in Verbum 8, you get a set of easy-to-use tools to help you mark up, outline, and create beautiful images based on Scripture
