- WATERMEAD STORY 'Getting to Know the Bible' is based on the Bible Reading Scheme written by Father John Daley for the parish of St Theresa’s in Birstall - a path through the whole Bible in twelve monthly chapters. The intention was to help people to grow in confidence in their approach to the Scriptures, coming to know the pattern and outline of the Bible and then, in succeeding years, to explore the Scriptures ever more deeply. Background Story to this Book. In 1994 Watermead had many new hymns and music ready to record, but, unfortunately, did not have the money to pay for the necessary costs of producing a finished cassette. Father John remembered his Bible Scheme notes and sent them to Redemptorist Publications on the off-chance they might be interested in publishing them. They were. They paid an advance royalty for the manuscript which paid for the production of our third recording 'LIFE - A Journey Shared'. For the full recording story see the Apostolate's website. The original little pocket book version of 'Getting to Know the Bible' was revised and updated by Fr John in 2005 at the request of Redemptorist Publications to its present format. It was edited and updated again in 2009.
