The Old Testament is so much more than an old book filled with funny names and endless rules about sacrificesits where we first get to know the God who keeps His promises, works miracles and forgives His people when they make poor choices. With Uncommon: The Old Testament, developed by youth ministry veteran Jim Burns, youth leaders can introduce their teens to key events and characters from the Hebrew Bible. Students will learn to see Gods Word as an exciting drama that finds its completion in Jesus Christ.
Through 12 flexible sessions of study that can be adapted for groups of any size, teens will learn how to listen to Gods voice, what it takes to stand up for Gods people, where to go when the going gets tough, and much more. Plus, the action-packed, fun activities and indispensable tips for starting meaningful dialogue will equip leaders to tell the old, old story in a fresh and vital way.
