About the Series▼▲
The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God's Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components:
- reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level
- "Gospel Glimpses" highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book
- "Whole-Bible Connections" show how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ
- "Theological Soundings" identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture.
With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.
