Finding Courage, Conviction, and Confidence in Life's Low Points
These studies guide you through the storyline of Scripture-each following a person, place, or thing in the Bible. Maybe you are practiced in dissecting a passage and pulling things out of the text to apply to your life. But now you may feel as though your faith is fragmented. The Storyline Bible studies help you put the pieces back together. You’ll discover cohesive, thematic storylines with literary elements and appreciate the Bible as the masterpiece that it is.
Each study is five weeks long and can be paired with its thematic partner for a seamless ten-week study to fit in a church semester. Every study features:
Gospel presentation at the beginning of each Bible studyFull Scripture passages included in the study so that you can mark up the text and keep your notes in one placeInsights from female scholars and scholars of colorFree resources for preaching and leading small groups
