Daily Bible Study helps develop the spiritual discipline of reading God's Word day-by-day. This quarterly resource coordinates with the lesson themes of Concordia's Adult Bible Studies, but is also great to use on its own. Each lesson includes: a one-page Bible study for each day of the quarter, along with introductory reflection questions and Commentary on the daily Scripture passage, Life Application, and a concluding prayer.
This fall, Daily Bible Study presents a series of readings following the theme "The Christian Community Comes Alive." Readings come primarily from the Book of Acts and focus on the beginnings of the Christian church; the boldness with which Jesus' followers testified to their faith; and the ways the gospel spread among the Jews and then the Gentiles. These daily readings, which prepare us for the 13 lessons in Adult Bible Studies, are written by Bill Carter, Katie Shockley, and Lee Franklin.

Seeds of New Growth
Daily readings in this four-week unit recall how the early Christians supported one another through prayer, how they lived generously and shared all things, ways they witnessed to the truth, and how they remembered Gods faithfulness.
Giving Bold Testimony
Daily readings in this four-week unit follow the members of the early church as Gods Spirit worked in and through them, enabling them to stand firm, follow Gods way, take risks to share the gospel, and trust the Spirit to equip them to do the work God called them to do.
Spreading the Gospel
Daily readings in this five-week unit explore the role of prayer in the spread of the gospel, the abundant grace of God that makes salvation available to all with no distinctions, the cost of following Christ, the majesty and goodness of God, and the wisdom of living based on teachings from Gods Word
