Using the Bible Studies for Personal Study

Christians have different beliefs about the Bible, but all believe it is the inspired Word of God and revere it as the core of our faith. But how much of the Bible do we really understand? Most of us would probably answer that our knowledge of the Bible is pretty shallow.

Each Bible Study consists of a Bible reading assignment and a number of thought-provoking questions about the assignment. The questions are intended to challenge us to think and pray about the topic and to lead us to a deeper, more mature understanding of the Bible. The Bible Studies are nonsectarian, and are suitable for use by all Christians.

You can complete the Bible study lessons online or print them for offline use.
