Job: Shlobberknockered with Suffering

Studying the book of Job compels us to explore the difficult issue of God's relationship to human suffering. We will confront the questions raised by Job's suffering. Is God just? Does he run the world according to some predictable justice? Why do we suffer? 

The booklet invites us to bring our pain and concerns to God and to trust that he cares and knows what He's doing. 

For individual study there are 42 lessons corresponding to the chapters in the book of Job. For group study, a 13-lesson plan is provided. Additional notes, resources, articles, activities, and more are provided in this 279 page resource for individual use or leader-guided classes. 

Esther: For Such A Time As This...

Have you ever felt as if you were invisible? Do you have the sense that your life here on earth is insignificant? Have you ever felt overlooked, useless, and unimportant? 

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, the story of Esther will speak to you. This young Jewish girl rose from a life of total obscurity to become queen of the most powerful empire of the world and foiled a plot to eliminate the entire Jewish nation. 

This study consists of ten easy-to-use lessons, one for each of the chapters of Esther. Also interspersed throughout the booklet are body care recipes from Esther's spa, articles of personal insight from the author, classic Purim recipes you can make to commemorate the Purim Festival, and more. 

The Miracles of Jesus

My prayer for you as you read this book is that you'll meet Jesus and grow deeper in your love for Him. Read of His supernatural acts of love and power as He drew all sorts of people to Himself and revealed His divine nature. 

This study consists of 35 lessons highlighting the most well-known miracles of Jesus, as recorded in the New Testament. Articles sharing the author's personal experiences are scattered throughout the booklet along with many other helpful resources. 

For ease of study, the miracles are grouped- physical healings, deliverances with healings, healing of the crowds, Jesus commanding the forces of nature, miracles involving wildlife, miracles involving food and drink, and resurrections from death to life. 

Philippians:

Paul's Joyful Letter from a Prison Cell

Studying Paul's New Testament letter to the Philippians will kindle a new fire within our heart to know Jesus more and to be closer to Him. The encouragements given by Paul have the ability to change each one of us so that we know exactly how to successfully live each moment of every day. 

As we make our intent to become more like Jesus, we will also learn to embrace joy, even in the midst of suffering. Paul is well acquainted with suffering, and therefore, qualified to cheer us on to "run the race with perseverance." 

This study contains 33 easy-to-use lessons, charts, maps, author articles, blog posts, and more. 

1 Samuel: It's Always About the Heart

Why, you may ask yourself, should we "enlightened" people of the 21st century, take the time and effort to study these ancient writings from the Old Testament? 

It is because God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow! Just as He did with the people of this book- Samuel, Saul, and David- He still chooses His people, loves them beyond their understanding, and directs their lives. Studying these three men can show us so much about ourselves and point us more to our God. 

This study contains 31 lessons, one for each chapter of the book of 1 Samuel. Additional resources scattered among the lessons are key Bible verses, personal experience articles from the author, recommended relevant reading, and more.
