For more than two decade the innovative and insightful LifeGuide
studies from IVP have helped people learn about the Bible and comprehend the Christian life more fully. Now, the next step in the development of LifeGuide
resources is available and is named LifeGuide In-Depth Bible Studies
These biblically focused studies help look deeper into critical themes of the Bible's individual books than you have ever before. As you see new connections between the Old and New Testament, gain an understanding of the historical and cultural background of passages, engage in creative exercises, and concretely apply what you've learned, you'll be amazed at the breadth of the knowledge and wisdom you gain and the transformation God can work in you as you meet him in his Word.
Each session provides enough material for a week's worth of Scripture study along with a weekly group discussion guide that pulls all of the elements together. This guide is based on and includes the inductive Bible study James from the bestselling LifeGuide Bible Study Series
--only now it has been expanded for a new kind of study experience. In A Deeper Look at James, you'll discover
- how often James leans on Jesus' Sermon on the Mount in giving instructions
- how to know if you're truly being "quick to listen" (hint: it involves much more than just your ears)
- how the different financial situations you've been in may have affected your faith
- how you can participate in God's work to bring justice on earth
and much more. If you're longing to go deeper in your understanding of God and his Word, LifeGuide in Depth Bible Studies
are for you. These new studies will meet your need for both rich, solidly researched content and personal application. They'll meet your need for Bible study that challenges your head and your heart. Most of all, we pray you'll meet God in them.
