While many people tend to gravitate toward the New Testament, I’ve always been captivated by heroes of the faith found in the Old Testament. Their stories help me realize their hope in the Messiah who was to come and also how they were real people who had shortcomings. Not unlike you or me, they were faithful, not because of their goodness, but because of the goodness of God.
So, take five of your favorite LifeWay teachers, five of their best-known studies, and combine them with five faithful Old Testament heroes and discover a new study from LifeWay: The Faithful.
Currently, you can still sign up for the study that is being offered online. You can purchase it at your local LifeWay store or online here. The study includes a week from Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Jennifer Rothschild, Lisa Harper, and Kelly Minter. Pulled from previous studies, this new resource is a great opportunity for women in your church to be introduced to new Bible study authors.
Here are a few ways you can incorporate this study into your ministry to women:
- Use this five-week study as a bridge between studies. Sometimes you might be looking for a shorter study to get you through a semester. Not only do you get to learn from five authors, but it’s a great way to fill out those weeks of a semester when you don’t want to dive into a longer study.
- Use this study to determine if you want to dive deeper with one of these authors. If your women have never completed a study from Jennifer Rothschild, this one week of Hosea may be just what you need to determine whether you want to complete the entire study at a later time.
- Complete the study online with thousands of women as a way to preview studies. You can purchase the study book, and watch the videos online for a limited time here. The online study begins October 11, so hurry and sign up soon. As a leader, this new resource will give you the opportunity to make a decision about future studies from various authors.
- Consider how this study gives a broad overview of some of the Old Testament’s incredible heroes. If you’re not familiar with Nehemiah, Hosea, or Malachi, this is a good survey study to learn more about the Old Testament.
As a Bible study leader, this might be just what you need to learn faithfulness from faithful people who followed a faithful God.
