Amid confusion and turmoil, unearth the hope in Scripture

Ecclesiastes can be a difficult book. Women struggle with the writer's laments on the meaninglessness of life, the pointlessness of work, and the lack of connection from generation to generation. They may think there are too many other books offering spiritual encouragement to waste time on this skeptical book of Scripture. But is that the whole picture?

Sue Edwards says there's more here than meets the eye. In fact, if studied properly, Ecclesiastes can lead women to an optimistic outlook on life. It can help women abandon bad habits, hang-ups, and foolish perspectives that keep them in bondage to everything that threatens to destroy the ultimate joy Jesus wants for them. All they need are the proper interpretive tools for this valuable book.

Edwards walks women through Ecclesiastes, revealing nuggets of wisdom about life and God, as well as dire warnings on what to avoid. Any woman who wants to know God and live according to His design, from new believers to veterans of the faith, will discover anew one of the richest sources of wisdom ever written.

If God asked you to live faithfully in the midst of upheaval, even if the cost was high, how would you respond? What if he made extraordinary and difficult demands? The prophet Habakkuk struggled with these very questions as he tried to follow God step-by-step during a time of unrest.

"Living by faith" sounds great on the surface, but when we face hardship and opposition, it's easy to seek security and stability instead of God's will. In Faith Amid the Ruins, Heath Thomas walks us through the book of Habakkuk, revealing the heart of this story about living by faith in light of God's own faithfulness toward us.

Learn from the fierce women of God who changed the world.

The word fierce is trendy. It is used to describe women who are extreme athletes, high-level executives, or supermodels. Women at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely! In fact, women like us have been changing the world for thousands of years--many who received little fanfare yet lived fiercely anyway. In this six-week study we will look at lesser-known female characters in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God's calling, including:

  • The midwives of Egypt (Shiphrah and Puah), who made hard decisions in the face of evil
  • Deborah, who was an unlikely and powerful leader
  • Naaman's slave girl, who bravely points others to God's healing power
  • The Woman at the Well, who boldly repented and shared her faith
  • Lois and Eunice, who parented with intentionality and effectiveness
  • Dorcas, who showed kindness to those in need.
  • As we explore their lives, we will discover how we too can live into our callings, honor the Lord, and even change the world through our courage, faithfulness, and obedience.

    Bible Study Features:

  • A six-week study of lesser-known female characters in the Bible.
  • Helps women consider how they can be fierce women of God.
  • Workbook includes five devotional lessons for every week of study.
  • Each DVD segment features an opening "fierce" vignette followed by engaging Bible teaching with practical life application.
  • Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide and DVD.

    DEEPER CONNECTIONS DVD 3: The Forgiving Touch of Jesus We all carry it--guilt and shame. We've all done things we should not have done. We carry it; we think about it; it keeps us awake at night; we can't shake it; it drags us down; it keeps us from fully enjoying life. Jesus came to take away our shame, to forgive us--allowing us to move from guilt and shame to freedom and forgiveness. As we examine the guilt-laden and burdened people Jesus encountered and set free, we will begin to see that he has the same plan for us today. He longs for us to fully understand the forgiveness and freedom for which he gave his life. Our lives will be transformed as we encounter this God who loves us so much that he runs to us. With maps and pictures, outlines, key scripture verses, discussion questions, plenty of room for note taking, and a personal five-day Bible study for each session, this participant's guide will help you get the most out of The Life of Jesus, both in your group and in applying what you learn to your life. TAKE A DEEPER LOOK The Deeper Connections series is unique. Unlike any other Bible study available, this visually stunning DVD series is written and taught by biblical experts--six professors with specialized areas of knowledge. Don't let the word deeper scare you. These engaging and accessible studies are for everyone who wants to deepen their understanding of God's Word and apply it more faithfully and effectively. In fact, a full one-third of each study is centered on modern application of Jesus' life and teachings. Hosted by Margaret Feinberg, who introduces each session from Israel, and filmed in locations as diverse as the Rocky Mountains, the Arizona desert, downtown Chicago, and Little Rock, Arkansas, each volume consists of six fascinating sessions. Each session is taught by a different teacher and emphasizes three components: 1. Historical and cultural background 2. An engaging, close look at the biblical text and its meaning 3. Accurate, encouraging, and challenging applications of the Bible's message to life today Are you seeking more from your Bible study? With three hours of teaching per DVD by Bible professors who know how to communicate the world of the biblical text to today's world, "Deeper Connections" will provide the depth for which you have been looking. Through alternating sections of teaching and group discussion or individual reflection, this Bible Study series will allow you to make DEEPER CONNECTIONS with three main areas: 1. Historical Background: Jewish, Old Testament, historical, social, and cultural backgrounds, along with New Testament parallels, will be examined in order to bring out the full and deeper meaning of the biblical text. 2. Biblical Text: Bible professors who teach this subject matter in Bible colleges and seminaries will teach the biblical text. This is not a study filled only with entertaining stories. It gets at the real meaning of the text through stimulating teaching. 3. Real-life Application: Challenging and accurate applications that come directly out of the biblical text will help you to live the truth of the Bible in today's difficult world.

    Sale 50% off

    This workbook accompanies Mark L. Strauss's Four Portraits, One Jesus. Following the textbook's structure, it offers readings from the Gospels, activities, and exercises designed to support the students' learning experience and enhance their comprehension of what can be known from the Gospels about the central defining subject of Christianity, Jesus of Nazareth.

    Four Portraits, One Jesus is a thorough yet accessible introduction to the four biblical Gospels and their subject, the life and person of Jesus. Like different artists rendering the same subject using different styles and points of view, the Gospels paint four highly distinctive portraits of the same remarkable Jesus. With clarity and insight, Mark Strauss illuminates these four books, first addressing their nature, origin, methods for study, and historical, religious, and cultural backgrounds. He then moves on to closer study of each narrative and its contribution to our understanding of Jesus, investigating things such as plot, characters, and theme. Finally, he pulls it all together with a detailed examination of what the Gospels teach about Jesus' ministry, message, death, and resurrection, with excursions into the quest for the historical Jesus and the historical reliability of the Gospels.

    It all started with a woman's prayer group. Its members could not have have imagined the legacy they would leave! The church at Philippi, founded on the prayers of these women, supported Paul, the "Apostle to the Gentiles," throughout his ministry and is recipient of his warmest letter. In this letter to his beloved spiritual family at Philippi-written with joy even as he sat imprisoned, abandoned, and facing possible execution-se see his desire to know Christ and make him known.

    Likewise, he longs for his friends to share that vision. Frappe with Philippians takes readers on a journey back to first-century Philippi, bringing them face to face with the Son of God who "emptied Himself" and unites them as a community. In this study, present-day believers get a glimpse of the joy they can experience when the church is united with one focus: seeing humanity's need and making known God's solution in the person of Jesus Christ.

    "A tremendous resource for those wanting to study and teach the Bible with an understanding of how the gospel is woven throughout Scripture." --Bryan Chapell, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church

    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: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) "Gospel Glimpses" highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) "Whole-Bible Connections" show how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) "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.

    The book of Galatians is one of the apostle Paul's most impassioned and eloquent letters. It warns Christians of the dangers of both legalism and lawlessness, calling believers to live gospel-shaped lives.

    In this study, pastor Geoff Ziegler walks readers through the promises, warnings, and gospel declarations found in Galatians. Both accessible and theologically robust, this guide will help Christians find freedom in their identity as God's adopted children.
