You'll be thrilled with the quality of this study material Most Bible study guides are meant to be overviews of Bible books or topics rather than an in-depth study. But Explorer's Bible Study materials are different. The content and design of these five courses help you study God's Word from beginning to end. Well-researched background information accompanies each lesson. And carefully prepared questions challenge you to a thoughtful and serious study of what you read.
As you complete each course, the themes and concepts that weave the Bible together as one book will become clearer to you. And you'll develop a foundation for understanding Scripture that will improve your personal study, group study and more.
Why these courses are so effective Explorer's Bible Study makes it easier for you to spend time in the Word, reading and examining it for yourself. The courses are divided into weekly lessons. Each lesson specifies a portion of the Scriptures to read and related questions for you to consider. Helpful background, included with each lesson, reviews and augments the discoveries you make in your own study. You can follow the suggested plan for moving through the lessons or choose your own pace. Either way, you'll be in God's Word on a regular basis.
