Many small-group leaders and adult Sunday school coordinators are scrambling at this time of year to find material to launch their ministries this fall. We have good news!
ChristianBibleStudies.com now has over 700 Bible studies to choose from. And instead of ordering numerous books for everyone, you can download just one study or course and make up to 1,000 copies for use in your church.
Some of the categories we have to choose from are:
Quarterly Study Plans—These 10-13 week courses are topical, including in-depth overviews on marriage, parenting, art and literature, bioethics, and knowing God. Some you may want to consider in this category are:
Bioethics & Compassion: This course looks at how Christians should view the ethical debate that swirls around scientific discoveries that both extend and take life. This innovative resource will help you think about bioethical issues from a Christian perspective, and how we can be wise and compassionate.
Prayer & Worship: There is nothing more important in our relationship with God than prayer and worship. Through prayer we establish a relationship with God, and through worship we recognize who he is. This course will help you sort through what it really means to speak to and honor God.
Essentials in Knowing God: This course will help you deepen your relationship with God by focusing on him and discovering what he is like. It will also teach you how to repent, find forgiveness, and get rid of guilt. Finally, it will help you fill your prayer life with joy and beauty.
Study Through the Bible Courses—Based on sermon series by well-known pastors, these studies cover books of the Bible. They range in size, although most are 6-8 weeks long. Some of our top sellers in this category are:
Psalms: Managing Our Emotions: Emotions are both complicated and complex, both mysterious and mystifying. Even the experts are not sure what causes us to experience emotions. Both social science and neurobiology have tried, to no avail, to explain the origin of emotions. And for Christians, emotions can be troubling, frustrating, and untrustworthy. Some emotions seem deeply spiritual; others seem downright sinful. God created us to experience emotions, yet there are still godly and ungodly ways to manage them. This 12-session course on the Book of Psalms will help you sort this out.
The Gospels: How Not to Be a Pharisee: This 6-session course looks at Jesus' interaction with a group of first-century Jewish religious leaders called Pharisees. As revealed in the four Gospels, these Pharisees received the brunt of Jesus' criticism. The ability to see sin in others and ignore it in your own heart is one of the distinguishing characteristics of a Pharisee. Unfortunately, this tendency is as common today as it was in Jesus' time. This course will help you learn to pursue God with an open heart.
1 Corinthians: Basic Christian Living: When Paul wrote to the Corinthians, he knew they needed to be instructed in the basics. Today, we also need to be taught the basics of the Christian life. This 7-session course from will remind us why we go to church; how to use our bodies to honor God; how to find unity in diversity; how to love, serve, and worship together; and how to face death.
