Adult Bible Study
Adult Bible Study provides a quarterly study of the Bible from an Anabaptist perspective. Lessons are based on the International Bible Lessons for Christian Teaching by the Committee on the Uniform Series. Scripture texts are from the Holy Bible: New International Version. In addition to weekly lessons, Adult Bible Study offers daily Bible readings, a weekly online essay, and suggested resources for additional study.
In addition to the regular study edition, we also offer Adult Bible Study Large Print, which includes all of the student content in an enlarged format, and Adult Bible Study Teacher, which includes all material found in the student edition, plus leader's notes for insight, discussion, and class activities.
To order, call us at 1-800-245-7894 (US) / 1-800-631-6535 (Canada), or e-mail us with your order and we'll be in touch with you.
Adult Bible Study Online is a free added resource providing an update to the printed materials, prepared and posted here just prior to the date of the lesson. These free columns are designed to help you bring current events and Bible study together. Watch for updates about 10 days prior to use. We hope these extra resources will enrich your group's Bible study experience.
