This book contains twenty-two individual 'Scripture Studies.' Each study focuses on one general area of study. These studies enable individuals to do in-depth, topical studies of the Bible. They are also invaluable to the Bible study teacher preparing lessons for Sunday School or a home Bible study. They can be used for group studies as well.
The range of topics covered in the different studies is broad, from what the Bible teaches about itself to what the Bible teaches about divorce and remarriage. Included in each study are hundreds of Scripture references so there will be no lack of material from which to begin your studies.
So if you're an individual looking for an aid to improve for your own personal Bible studies or a Bible study teacher or home group leader looking for help in preparing lessons, this book will be of great benefit.
