This 2nd study guide booklet covers two vital Christian worldview subjects: The Christian Worldview of Economics (Subject #3), and the Christian Worldview of Politics (Subject #4). In the Economics sessions, we note that In the Gospels, an amazing one out of ten verses (288 in all) deal directly with the subject of money; therefore the topic of the Biblical worldview of Economics is very relevant for all Christians in the world today. In this video we will clarify the Christian worldview and why it results in greater prosperity for all who live by its principles. In the Politics sessions, we look at what the Bible says about Christian involvement in politics, and what happens when Christians don't participate. We also deal with questions like: Is the doctrine of "Separation of Church and State" supported by either the Constitution of the U.S. or the Bible? Are pastors required to be silent in the pulpit over political/social issues by either the State or the Bible? Is there any arena of life that is not sacred to God?

This guide considers the historical contexts, the literary forms, the social and rhetorical backgrounds, the politics, the theologies, and the reception of 2 Corinthians. Each chapter surveys recent scholarly approaches to the text, focussing especially on critical perspectives that mesh with our contemporary concerns about gender, identity, race and class. 2 Corinthians becomes, in the process, less the work of a single 1st-century writer than a set of fraught, even fractured negotiations between competing interests and impulses, conducted in Paul's voice. The last chapter brings the letter into conversation with Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story 'The Minister's Black Veil' in order to shift the terms of the critical discussion from what Paul meant to how Paul means in later cultural moments. Twomey introduces students to the way 2 Corinthians offers a fascinating but fragmentary glimpse into Paul's continuing ties with the Corinthian community. At the same time, Twomey shows how the letter is the site of many new critical challenges to traditional readings of Paul and early Christianity. In contrast to 1 Corinthians, this 2 Corinthians largely eschews the debates and discussions, the interests and concerns of Paul's correspondents. Instead we find Paul engaged in a multi-pronged defence of his ministry in and beyond Corinth. Over the course of thirteen chapters he runs the gamut of the emotions, rhetorically, from tears to joy to biting anger, while struggling to keep his relationship with (some say, his control over) the community intact.

The For Everyone Bible Study Guide: 1 and 2 Thessalonians offers series of eight short, question-based studies based around Paul for Everyone: Galatians and Thessalonians and designed to encourage individuals and church groups to study the Bible using the For Everyone model. Experienced Bible study writers have selected excerpts and written questions that guide users through the thought of Tom Wright on each passage. These have been reviewed, edited and approved by Tom Wright. Creation is in anguish. Paul's letter to the Thessalonians, as well as the merest glance at our world, shows this clearly. The Church shares in the suffering, groaning in the tension between the 'already' of possessing the fruit of the Spirit and the 'not yet' of our present existence. Paul, however, also makes it abundantly clear that God doesn't stand apart from the pain. Rather, he entered it through Jesus and dwells in the middle of it in the Spirit. These studies present the whole picture of a suffering, sinful world and God's deep love, still working today to reconcile that world to himself.

In my many years of attending Bible study, I have found that many who attend barely grow beyond the level of being fed the word of God. Many are stocked in the level of milk without the capacity to handle the solid word of God. The aptitude and zeal to understand and rightly share the word of God is absent in the greater percentage of church attendees today. Every good shepherd desire that their flocks grow in their spiritual muscle and be able to stand anywhere and anytime on their faith feet without being tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine. However, due to various environmental and organizational challenges, a small group Bible study setting may be lacking in many churches. The members may attend worship services on Sunday and other times, and listen to the pastor's sermon day after day, but never have the opportunity to contribute their God-given ideas or ask questions that could strengthen their courage to share their faith with understanding. This book is designed to challenge believers in reading a passage of the scripture and equip them with spiritual-warfare weapon in memory verse during each Bible study session. The individual will have the opportunity to learn and discuss the weekly topic and questions that follow every introduction to the topic. The study guide is simply arranged to enable any believer or group of believers and families to use in any Bible study group setting. The study guide discusses various topics with supporting scriptural references to equip participants with practical knowledge and applications to their daily Christian living. Bible Study Guide for Churches, Small House Fellowships, and Discussion Groups is a must-have handbook for pastors, leaders of various Christian fellowship groups, and believers that will love to grow in their Christian walk.

In this eight-session video Bible study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), pastor and author Randy Frazee explains there is a difference between simply believing something in our heads and allowing those beliefs to shape our actions and behaviors. It is not enough to think like Jesus . . . we must also act like Jesus. For this reason, once we understand what we believe, we need to yield to the direction of the Holy Spirit and allow him to lead us to those biblical practices that will bring about spiritual transformation in our lives. As we do this, the Holy Spirit will lead us to make these resolutions: I will worship God for who he is and for what he has done for me. I will pray to God to know him, find direction for my life, and to lay my requests before him. I will study the Bible to know God and his truth and find direction for my daily life. I will dedicate my life to God's purposes. I will fellowship with Christians to accomplish God's purposes in my life and in the world. I will seek to understand my spiritual gifts so I can use them to fulfill God's purposes. I will give my resources to fulfill God's purposes. I will share my faith with others to fulfill God's purposes. Grounded in carefully selected scripture, Act Like Jesus is a churchwide discipleship program that will take you on a journey to become more like Jesus in your behaviors. This revised study, adapted from Part 2 of the Believe churchwide study, includes an updated video study and new content and questions adapted from the existing Believe Study Guide and Think, Act, Be Like Jesus by Randy Frazee.

A college education becomes truly meaningful when faith affects what happens in the classroom every day. According to David Dockery and Timothy George, it’s only by stepping into the great tradition of Christian thinking that students can take hold of the true power of their education. They demonstrate that vibrant, world-changing Christianity is not anti-intellectual; instead, it assumes a long tradition of vigorous Christian thinking and a commitment to the integration of faith and scholarship as essential to the preparation of a next generation of leaders in the church, the academy, and the world. As the first volume in a new series, this book introduces an approach to the Christian tradition that is not simply historical overview, but will also help students engage with contemporary challenges to their faith in various academic fields. This reader-friendly guidebook shows how to address those challenges by reclaiming the best of the Christian intellectual tradition. With illustrations, reflection questions, and a list of resources for further study, this book is sure to be a timely tool in the hands of believing students in both Christian and secular universities. Part of the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition series.

The book Revitalizing Christianity takes the reader through ten areas where Christians misunderstand highly motivating Christian truths. This study guide is designed to work with an individual or group interested in seriously studying the Bible with the help of that book. Many Christians have doubts about the reality of God. Attacks, especially in the realm of science, have many questioning whether the God of the Bible is real. Without getting bogged down in the science, Mr. Webster provides simple assurance that the God of Christianity is the only real God. But the God of Christianity has gained a terrible reputation, and these books address how understanding the biblical message from God's perspective reveals a God who really is good and wonderful and even exciting. Mr. Webster addresses misunderstandings about Christian love and the nature of sin, saving faith, Christian hope (heaven), God's plan, the role of suffering, the role of prayer, the role of Christian forgiveness, and the role of the church, taking the reader back to the Bible over and over to show that Christianity was always meant to be exciting and good.
