Resource of the Month: At the Cross Cover to Cover Lent Bible Study


Cover to Cover Lent: At the Cross

NEW for Lent 2017

Reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus in a new way – by considering the perspectives of those who witnessed it themselves.

Each of these six Bible study sessions includes a devised monologue of someone whom the Gospels tell us was present at the cross – from the criminal crucified beside Christ, to Mary and the Roman centurion.

You and your small group can discover a creative approach to exploring these momentous passages of the Bible and be encouraged by looking afresh at the world-changing impact of what was achieved through the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Author Abby Guinness writes in her introduction to this Bible study:

‘Together, in these sessions, we’ll spend some time thinking about six people who witnessed the crucifixion. They were real people with thoughts, experiences and responses like ours. My background is in theatre and I have a love of thinking about things dramatically. I naturally consider human nature and personal stories to help me understand and explore the Scriptures. I would love it if you would enter into that with me… and I pray they will help you find fresh perspective on your own interpretation of the biblical text.’

Resources of the Month: Joshua 1-10 and The Armour of God Bible studies


Cover to Cover Joshua 1-10

Discover more of the wonders of being in a relationship with our faithful, holy and awesome God.

Joshua’s life powerfully illustrates God’s call to each and every one of us to walk by His side and bear witness to His work. We may live in a very different culture from the one in which Joshua found himself, but God never changes and nor do the priorities He has set for us. Today, just as during Joshua’s time, no one is beyond the reach of God’s grace. Like Joshua, we will learn that God’s ways are best, even when they don’t make sense to us at the time.

Over seven sessions, be encouraged in your small group to live out your life for God, better understand God’s faithfulness, and discover more about what it means to be in a relationship with a faithful God.

 

 


Cover to Cover The Armour of God

An invitation to put on God’s strength, protection and power.

Ephesians 6 is a well-known passage about the armour of God, but how do we go further than just knowing about the armour – how do we fully apply it to our lives? The armour is of little value if it is not put on and worn intentionally. Let these words of Scripture become a reality to you and your daily life as you explore the different pieces of armour and consider how each part protects, strengthens and empowers us as we take hold of them.

This is an opportunity over seven sessions for your small group to be reminded that we are loved, valued and forgiven by God, and that salvation makes a huge difference to our lives. We can also wear the armour both personally and together as the Church.
