Jesus can change you, no matter what your life situation.
He can give you peace, hope and joy in the most desperate circumstances.
But you need a life-changing encounter with him.
In this eight-session LifeGuide® Bible Study, Douglas Connelly examines the stories of how eight people—among them a scholar, a failure, a blind man and an adulteress—found their lives changed forever when they met Jesus Christ. Looking at their lives can give you hope when you find yourself dealing failure or with an emptiness nothing in life seems to fill.
The good news is that Jesus is waiting to meet you and longing to offer you what you need most.
For over three decades LifeGuide Bible Studies have provided solid biblical content and raised thought-provoking questions—making 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.
