EWTN Press Release: New shows schedule



EWTN To Air Weekly Catholic Bible Study
With Well-Known Scripture Scholar Fr. Mitch Pacwa


Irondale, AL (EWTN) – In response to ongoing viewer demand, EWTN will premiere a brand new weekly Catholic Bible Study entitled, “Scripture and Tradition.” The series, hosted by Scripture Scholar Fr. Mitch Pacwa SJ, kicks off at 2 p.m. ET, Tuesday, March 6, with encores at 10 p.m. ET, Tuesdays, and 9 a.m. ET, Wednesdays, and replaces Father’s previous EWTN series “Threshold of Hope.” (Get a sneak peek at http://bit.ly/2FkGvfP.)

“I’ve already written a lot of Bible studies that are organized thematically,” said Fr. Mitch. “So we’re going to start off with my book, ‘Winning the Battle Against Sin,’ which deals with Biblical teaching on sin and forgiveness. After that, I’d like to counterbalance that with my Bible study called “Saved,” which tackles the theme of salvation. I’ve also done Bible studies on the life of Christ. We’ll be taking his ministry step by step. Another approach I hope to take is to study the individual books of the Bible, starting with Isaiah and then Jeremiah and other books of the Bible.”

“For over three decades, Father Mitch Pacwa has been a favorite of EWTN audiences around the globe,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “I am confident our viewers will be excited about this newest program which plays to Father Mitch’s strength as a Scripture scholar.”

In addition to all of his hosting duties at EWTN, which include the weekly “EWTN Live,” Fr. Mitch is a prolific writer, who holds a Ph.D in Old Testament from Vanderbilt University, and an M. Div. and S.T.B. degrees in Theology from the Jesuit School of Theology at Loyola University Chicago. Father Mitch previously taught Scripture at Loyola as well as at the University of Dallas, and currently serves a Senior Fellow at the St. Paul Institute for Biblical Studies.

“Fr. Mitch will talk about Scripture in light of Catholic Tradition – spotlighting early Church documents that illuminate the way we understand the Bible,” said EWTN President Doug Keck, who helped create the show.

Peter Gagnon, Vice President of Programming and Production and S&T Executive Producer, added: “I encourage viewers to go to EWTN’s Facebook page [www.facebook.com/groups/ewtnbiblestudy] to post their questions for Fr. Mitch. This will be a big part of the show!”
