1 and 2 Samuel: Growing a Heart for God (New Community Bible Study Series)

John Ortberg

2008    96 Pages    (Zondervan)

ISBN 13: 9780310280491    ISBN 10: 0310280494

Written by the dynamic leaders of church ministry across the country, this series explores life-changing topics from a biblical perspective. New Community guides don’t force small groups to choose between Bible study and building community. Just the opposite. Each study delves deeply into Scripture in a way that strengthens relationships. Challenging questions encourage group members to reflect not only on Scripture but also on their own lives---individually and as a part of God’s [...]

Written by the dynamic leaders of church ministry across the country, this series explores life-changing topics from a biblical perspective. New Community guides don’t force small groups to choose between Bible study and building community. Just the opposite. Each study delves deeply into Scripture in a way that strengthens relationships. Challenging questions encourage group members to reflect not only on Scripture but also on their own lives---individually and as a part of God’s family. And unlike most Bible studies, the New Community series helps study groups convert biblical principles into practical teamwork---helping at the soup kitchen, bringing a meal to someone, writing an encouraging letter, and so on. Filled with prayer, insight, intimacy, and action, each study in this series will help group members line up their lives and relationship more closely with the Bible’s model for the church. [less]

He was a king who rose to dizzying heights. An empire renowned wisdom breathtaking buildings incredible wealth Solomon had it all. And under him, Gods chosen people Israel enjoyed a golden age.But he was also a king who fell ruinously. His reputation became tarnished his kingdom was divided his achievements did not last. Solomon's life and rule are a fascinating study of wealth and powerand their corrupting influence.But his rule is not primarily a morality tale. Solomon's reign, and the blessings Gods people enjoyed under him, point us to a greater king, who will never fall. The king and his kingdom turn out to be just a shadow of the reality that is to come in Christ. Its rise shows us how wonderful it is when Gods people live in Gods land under Gods king. Its fall reminds us that the best is yet to come.The eight studies in this Good Book Guide will help ordinary Christians get to grips with the first eleven chapters of 1 Kings. They will encourage and challenge you as you seek to live as Gods people today. And they will excite you as you look forward to the eternal glory of living under great Solomons greater SonJesus Christ. [less]

P.S. It's time to grow up! Godly men are in short supply - dare to become one! Designed for mothers of sons, this six-session Bible study will help you discover and implement principles for raising godly men. From sons' failing to launch into manhood to growing up too soon, Vicki covers the hot-button issues you're sure to face and gives you the tools to navigate the land mines with confidence. [less]

Many people are obsessed with the approval of others. The problem is that living for what people think of you is the quickest way to forget what God thinks about you.   In Altar Ego, author Craig Groeschel shows individuals and small groups how to abandon self-worth based on accomplishments and possessions, turning instead to the eyes of God to define them.

Many people are obsessed with the approval of others. The problem is that living for what people think of you is the quickest way to forget what God thinks about you.   In Altar Ego, author Craig Groeschel shows individuals and small groups how to abandon self-worth based on accomplishments and possessions, turning instead to the eyes of God to define them. Participants will learn to expose false labels and selfish motives as the roadblocks they are, going instead to the altar of God’s truth and pursuing the higher values he sets above the world.   You don’t have to get caught up in your self-worth or lack thereof. Your worth is not based on your opinion of yourself. You are valuable because God says you are His.  You are not your past. You are not what you did. You are not who others say you are. You are who Christ says you are.   This study guide offers discussion questions and other supplemental material to delve further into God’s divine plan, and will ultimately help you sacrifice any old, unhealthy, untrue, and unbiblical thoughts about yourself and introduce you to your altar-ego—who you are in Christ.

It affects his relationship with the people of Israel, with the members of his family, and with God. But the main message of these books is not human failure, but divine faithfulness. As David experienced time and time again, with God there is the possibility of restoration. Many years later, Isaiah expressed this truth eloquently. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. (Isa. 55:7) As you follow David’s life in this book, you will discover that what was true for David is true for you, too. No matter what has happened between you and God in the past, restoration is possible. So prayerfully ponder the truths in this book, and Be Restored. Personal and Group Study Guide Included [less]

Beginning in Christ Together (Experiencing Christ Together)

The heart of Christianity is not a ritual or a structure, but a Person—Jesus Christ. But even as his followers, our vision of Jesus can get muddied by man-made theories of who he was. Whether you’re a seasoned believer or a brand new Christian, come walk in the footsteps of his first disciples to see him afresh: as Teacher, Healer, Shepherd, Servant, Savior, and Risen Lord.

The heart of Christianity is not a ritual or a structure, but a Person—Jesus Christ. But even as his followers, our vision of Jesus can get muddied by man-made theories of who he was. Whether you’re a seasoned believer or a brand new Christian, come walk in the footsteps of his first disciples to see him afresh: as Teacher, Healer, Shepherd, Servant, Savior, and Risen Lord. These six sessions lay the foundation for radical discipleship as our hearts are once again captured by who he is. Experiencing Christ Together helps your group explore the five biblical purposes that make up a high-impact Christian life —fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism, and worship. Jesus perfectly lived out God’s purposes for his life, and he taught his followers how to do the same. As you walk in the footsteps of those first disciples by listening to and watching Jesus through these studies, you and your group will be transformed. One small group leader put it this way: “The Experiencing Christ Together series has motivated me more than any other Bible study that I have ever been to. This Bible study gets to the heart of the matter—my character in Christ—and that has created action on my part.” [less]
