Connects everyday conversations to biblical wisdom.

Since 1964, Bible-in-Life has brought generations together and brought God’s Word to life with theologically balanced, biblically based lesson plans for every age, every stage and every day.

Bible-in-Life has fresh ways to reach every student in every Sunday school class! David C Cook's most widely used curriculum focuses on four fundamental goals: Connect, Teach, Apply, Motivate.

No matter where students are in their walk with Jesus, Bible-in-Life communicates the gospel with life-changing clarity, inspiring people of all ages to know God and make Him known.

How It Works

Each week, across all age levels, Bible-in-Life students focus on these four areas:

• Connecting with each other and with God’s Word
• Studying God’s Word together
• Interacting with God’s Word to find key themes and takeaways
• Responding to God’s Word by applying it to life
