What’s in the Bible about Church?

What is the Bible is all about? What's in it? Why is it so important for Christians? Is it really relevant for people in the 21st century? Should I care about what's in the Bible? Why? What difference will it make in my life? The study series, What's in the Bible and Why Should I Care? offers opportunities to explore these questions and others by opening the Bible, reading it, prayerfully reflecting on what the Bible readings say, and applying the readings to daily life.

The title of this unique and exciting Bible study series points to the two essential features of meaningful Bible study: reading the Bible and applying the Bible to life. First, we read the Bible to discover answers to the question What’s in the Bible? and second, we reflect upon what we read in order to discover answers to the question, Why Should I Care? and apply these answers to our lives.

What’s in the Bible about Church? is one of the study books in the series, What’s in the Bible and Why Should I Care? What’s in the Bible About Church? will help readers explore the church as God’s people living, learning, and sharing God’s message of love and hope. Chapters include: “What is the Church?”, “The Church Worships”, “The Church Teaches”, and “The Church Serves.”

Each chapter contains the following features:

Bible Readings - Each chapter explores specific readings from the Bible.

The Questions – Each chapter begins with focus questions that will be explored in the Bible readings and the chapter information.

A Psalm – Each chapter begins with verses from a psalm. These excerpts from the psalms give readers the experience of using the Bible for personal and group devotion.

A Prayer – A brief two or three sentence prayer at the beginning and end of each chapter

What's in the Bible? Participants will read and reflect upon key Bible readings in each chapter and use the space provided to write personal and private reflections.

Reflection Questions – These questions are related to the chapter information and are designed to help the reader consider key ideas that emerge from this information and from the Bible readings.

Here's Why I Care – This activity near the end of each chapter contains questions that invite the readers to grow in faith as they prayerfully reflect about what they have learned
