Product DescriptionThe Participant’s Book has helpful information about each week’s lesson. The scripture passages are included along with scripture notes, helpful insights into the text, and even daily Bible readings for personal study.
The Fall Quarter (September–November 2022) titled, God’s Exceptional Choice, traces the arc of salvation history from Abraham to Jesus and on to the early church. Unit I, “God Calls Abraham’s Family,” is drawn from Genesis and chronicles the origin of the chosen people, Israel, from Abraham to Judah. Unit II journeys through Exodus, Deuteronomy, Judges, and 1 Samuel showing the move to nationhood. Finally, Unit III explores the theme of chosenness through the perspective of the book of Ephesians.
Series DescriptionThe Present Word is an in-depth Bible study for adults that dives deep into God’s Word, studying the Bible over a six-year period and focusing on a specific theme each quarter. Adults read the Participant Book lesson during the week and a no-prep Leader’s Guide provides instructions to lead a 45- minute session. Worship leaflets are also available to wrap the session in prayer and song. Designed by an ecumenical collaborative so that participants in multiple denominations are studying the same passages together, the goals of The Present Word curriculum are to engage in a serious study of Scripture in order to discover its deeper meaning and how it is relevant to our world today.
