10. The Gospel, a Napkin, and Four Circles

Single-Session Bible Study
Today's young people do not look at the world as their parents did, so the way we express the gospel to them needs to be rethought. But how do we express the gospel in a new way without losing the heart of the gospel? James Choung, an experienced campus ministry worker with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in San Diego, has shaped a gospel presentation that can be sketched on a napkin, using four circles that explain the essence of the gospel. What is different from earlier napkin tools is where it begins—with God's good creation—and where it ends—Christians building the kingdom of God here on Earth. Use this study and the clever drawings to share a better understanding of the gospel message.

8. I Want to Change … So Help Me God

4-Session Bible Study
Many times what needs to change is something we have not been able to change. We're not talking about something like biting your fingernails or not being on time. In this series we're talking about big problems, the things that hold us back and drag us down: addictions, compulsions, persistent personal problems. These problems are often about overdoing something: overdrinking, overeating, overgambling, overspending, oversexing, overworking, overreacting, overworrying, overcriticizing, over-you-name-it! God has given us a way to change: confess, repent, obey. These studies will encourage us to let these three words become seared into our hearts and minds so they can bring about change.

7. Theology 101

6-Session Bible Study
The word theology is derived from two Greek words: Theos (God) and logos (speech or reason). Therefore, theology in its simplest terms is rational discussion about God. It has been described as "the science of God and his relationship to man and the world" and "the attempt to reduce religious truth to an organized system." Systematic theology is any study that answers the question, "What does the whole Bible teach us today?" If you would like to understand these basics about the Christian faith, such as the doctrines of the Bible, God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, mankind, the church, salvation, and the future, download this six-session course.
