This simplified 4 week study requires no video or audio lectures. There is no introductory session, either, so participants should be encouraged to obtain their study sets ahead of time and come prepared to discuss Lesson One at their first gathering. The Study Set, however, is similar to study sets found in almost any other Little Rock Scripture Study. It consists of a commentary, The Word of God at Vatican II: Exploring Dei Verbum, written by Ronald D. Witherup, SS (Liturgical Press, 2014) and a Study Guide. The commentary includes a translation of the document Dei Verbum, also known as The Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, along with background information and insightful commentary. The Study Guide is written by Catherine Upchurch, with 18 questions for each of the 4 lessons.
Lesson 1—A brief history of Dei Verbum
Lesson 2—Dei Verbum, paragraphs 1-13
Lesson 3—Dei Verbum, paragraphs 14-26
Lesson 4—Ongoing interpretation and the fruits of Dei Verbum

Accompanying the text of The Word of God at Vatican II is a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary and an exploration of the impact the constitution has had in the churchs life. Readers will be amazed at how influential Dei Verbum continues to be, even today.
