Understanding the Books of the Bible

Did you know you could read and study the Bible without using any chapters or verses? The books of the Bible are real books, and they're meant to be experienced the same way other books are: as exciting, interesting works that keep you turning pages right to the end and then make you want to go back and savor each part. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series will help you do just that with the Bible.

Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, this series will move your group from a typical Bible study into a new approach to experiencing the Bible together as it was meant to be read: as whole books.

Filled with engaging discussion questions, helpful maps and a leaders guide, these studies will lead your group into a fresh community Bible experience.
