What is a good idea?
Truly good ideas have four key aspects. Eight examples of good or bad ideas in the Bible are studied. These can be used as counseling tools on decision making and the will of God.
How would you describe various events, things, verses, and passages in the Bible? The 250 cards in this set help you do so and have fun at the same time. Some of the best studies are on questions in Genesis, Exodus, Job, and John. Some great games are included.
The studies in this set are on passages in which God is never or rarely mentioned. Thus they appear to be "godless," but they really are not.
The 20 studies include: Asenath, Joseph's Wife, Moses Mother, Naomi's Neighbors, Phoebe, Peter's Wife, and the noble woman in 2nd. John.
People in David's Life
These 21 studies include many lesser-known men and women such as: Michal, Mephibosheth, Abigail, Uriah, and the prophet Gad.
The 20 studies include: the artisans in Exodus, the Priests at the Jordan, Naaman's servants, Elihu in Job, Amos, and Paul's Nephew.
The 20 studies include: Jotham, a son of Gideon, the trampled officer in 2 Kings 6-7, Agur in Proverbs 30:1, Jason in Acts 17, and the three men in 3rd. John.
On the left side of the list are 101 good things that God does: created all things, communicates, saves, judges, answers prayer, etc. On the right side of the list are 101 thoughts on what we should do in response.
The compass diagram points are: North = God, South = sin, East = the group, and West = the individual. The studies in the set are on individuals and groups, including: Jonah & the seamen and the adulterous Woman & her accusers (John 8).
Four methods are used in this set of material: 1.) Questions asked, 2.) What God did? 3.) Top 55 in Genesis, and 4.) studies on Joseph
John is about genuine belief in Jesus and is approached in two ways. First, questions asked in John are studied in a creative, interactive way. Second, a unique format is used in a commentary of over 200 pages. (This is now being edited.)
Saved to Serve
What is the purpose of Romans? It is not just about salvation. The goal is for us to serve God. So chapter 12 must be taken more seriously than it often is. The same is true of chapter 16. We are saved to serve!
Christian Life Design
In 2 Peter 1:5-7
Peter gave us a blueprint of the Christian life, from faith to love. Virtue means to do good based on faith, like those in Hebrew 11. No essential virtue can be skipped. The final three virtues in 2 Pet. 1:5-7 are forms of service.
22 Devotional Hikes
The 22 stanza in Psalm 119 are like 22 trail sections. There is an application at the end of each devotional trail report. The trail analogy helps with understanding and making applications.
One key study in this set shows why Jeremiah was probably the author of Psalm 119. For instance, verse 46 shows that the author was a prophet rather than a king like David. There are detailed studies and games.
WALK Bible Studies
The four easy steps in WALK inductive study are: W. (watching) A. (analyzing), L. (linking), and K. (knowing what to do). The linking step is where analogy comes into play. "What is this passage like?"
without getting lost
A color-coded summary chart of the book is used like a great map. Without it, it is easy to get lost in Jeremiah. Both Jeremiah and Psalm 119 contain a lot about persecution and how to overcome it.
Various methods are used to study Exodus including: 1.) the Top 55, 2.) questions asked, 3.) things God did, 4.) studies on individuals, and 5.) Jethro's good idea in chapter 18.
Two of the seven studies involve Gideon, and one is on Samson. Often the focus is on lesser-known people whom God used.
One of the six studies is on the story of the lost ax head. Most studies are focused on lesser-known people around Elisha.
Four study methods are used in the Esther set. Four main characters are in the Bible Top 55, and these are studied using the "Esther Top Four" game. Another study is on seeing God in the Book, even though he is not directly mentioned.
JOB is tops in questions, with far more questions asked than in any other book. A summary chart shows where they are in the book so that some can be described and discussed. Also, there's a special study on Elihu.
The various steps in the S.E.E.D. method assure that God is always given his proper place in each study, even if he is not directly mentioned in the verse(s) being studied.
