Religion - Biblical Studies - Bible Study Guides
As a Sunday School teacher for middle adults, I am always on the look out for new study materials. This book, which is one in a series of 40 minute Bible studies, is a great resource and one I will be using for my class. I like the format, which doesn’t require buying additional materials for the students, and yet allows for a great Bible study. I also really like the materials, which focus on an area that is not too broad, but has great application for Christians as they walk with Jesus every day.
I have read through the book, and I enjoy the intertwining of the Old and New Testament principles – I firmly believe that the Old Testament contains great insight for Christian living, and I am always pleased to find a study that builds a picture of faithful life from the entire Bible, not just a focus on the New Testament without a glimpse into the underlining principles throughout the Word. I like the fresh writing style, and the insight into the reasons that Christians struggle with sin – we have an enemy in Satan, and we battle our own flesh as well, all things that the Holy Spirit helps us overcome.
I think sometimes longer term Christians think they don’t struggle with the same kind of sins that others do, and yet as I read this study, I certainly saw instances where my heart was not as on target as I thought it was. There are some really great components to the study that build introspection and focus on the heart of the believer. The 40 minute Bible study Fatal Distractions: Conquering Destructive Temptations is a great resource, and one I look forward to using with my unique group of adult Christians. I am so glad that God has called some to write studies that engage people in His Word, and build the Kingdom.
