Bible Study

Beginning Sunday, September 18 at 5 pm we will continue the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series with Book 4.

The Wisdom of God (A 10-week Bible Study): Seeing Jesus in the Psalms & Wisdom Books by Nancy Guthrie

This 10-week study of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon mines the Wisdom Literature not only for wise principles for living, but also for the wise person these books point to through their drama, poetry, proverb, and song. In her accessible and authentic style, Nancy Guthrie focuses on seeing Jesus in the Old Testament instead of emphasizing works-based moralism. She presents clear commentary and contemporary application of gospel truths, speaking directly to issues such as repentance, submission, happiness, and sexuality.

Each weekly lesson includes questions for personal study, a contemporary teaching chapter that emphasizes how the passage fits into the bigger story of redemptive history, and a brief section on how the passage uniquely points to what is yet to come at the consummation of Christ's kingdom.

Each book costs $10.00.  Please contact Angela Bouknecht  or JoAnn Snow to reserve your copy.
