As you can imagine, whittling down all the great studies out there just to our Top 100 favorites was difficult. Initially, we had a hard time finding good studies to cover various books of the bible so this Spring I focused on finding some good ones to replace a few that we weren’t thrilled about. If your group is looking for a great small group study that focuses on a Book of the Bible take a look at these:
It should come as no surprise that Rick Warren is a favorite teacher of mine and although this two volume series dates from about 10 years ago. It is an oldie, but goodie. You’ll find practical advice for walking in faith and applying lessons to your everyday life.
Each volume is 6 sessions with a video that is 25 to 30 minutes long. Be sure to get the study guide as well which will have memory verses, teachings and discussion questions.
The Girl’s Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World Small Group DVD Study
Liz Curtis Higgs is a well-known women’s bible study teacher that hits it out of the park with this series where she walks through the Book of Ruth which has 12 chapters verse by verse. You can choose to do one chapter per session or do several so that you could meet for 3, 6, or 12 weeks. The flexibility is nice.
The book is full of provoking study questions that will have your small group attendees talking and that’s the point right?!?
Join J.D. Greear for a walk through the Book of Jonah in a world that is fraught with missteps, disobedience, idolatry, and mistaken “identity.”
Group members will recognize some of this issues and themes in their own lives. Be sure to get the participant’s guide as well!
