Reading the Bible is one of the most important spiritual disciplines we can engage in. Why is Bible study so significant? How can our attitude and approach affect what we get out of our reading?
The way we approach the Bible affects our interaction with God. Learning to immerse ourselves in God's thoughts through study and meditation allows us to go deeper into God's Word and live in a more Christlike way. This six-session LifeGuide® Bible Study from Jan Johnson helps us do just that.
For over three decades LifeGuide Bible Studies have provided solid biblical content and raised thought-provoking questionsmaking for a one-of-a-kind Bible study experience for individuals and groups. This series has more than 130 titles on Old and New Testament books, character studies, and topical studies.
