Bible Courses

Three Courses. Six Weeks Each. Lively Discussion. Small Groups.

And you don't need to know a thing to start.

What Is the Bible?  This first course gives you a broad overview of the entire Bible, including chapters on how to select a Bible suitable for your needs, how the Bible is organized, how the collection of books that comprise the Bible were chosen, different ways that people approach the text, and what archaeology has to tell us about the text and its stories. 

Introducing the Old Testament  The second course helps you better understand the Old Testament in the context of the world in which it was written.  Learn about the march of empires across biblical lands, how ancient peoples thought about their world, and how the stories of the Bible distinguished the God of Israel from the gods of Israel's neighbors.

Introducing the New Testament  The third course shows you Jesus in three distinct ways: A man like other men, a Jewish rabbi, and the Christ of Christian faith. Then it's on to the cantankerous Paul, the other New Testament authors, and the wild and baffling book called Revelation.

Each course has a student book and a leader's guide that can be purchased separately on Amazon.com. All courses are available in large print and all the student books are available on Kindle.
