Studies in Faithful Living

The Studies in Faithful Living series examines the lives of biblical characters who responded faithfully to God’s call. Combining narrative analysis with infographics, maps, and questions for reflection, each volume explores key events in these characters’ lives, combining the depth you expect from a biblical commentary with application and teaching insights.

This collection helps your entire church dig deeper into the lives of the founders of our faith. This all-in-one curriculum package has something for everyone:

  • Preaching resources and sermon starters for pastors and teachers
  • Videos, slides and media for the tech team
  • Discussion guides and videos for small group leaders
  • Bulletin inserts and handouts for the entire congregation
  • Books for members of the congregation and small groups, available separately

This collection sets up your church or small group for going deeper for six full months. The preparation work is already done—all you have to do is share and lead. Present elegantly and engage your church or group with this complete church curriculum package.

The Best Curriculum for Churches

Discover new meaning in the lives of the Patriarchs. Discover how God worked in the lives of the Patriarchs to grow them into the leaders of the faith. Find the perfect sermon illustrations. Discuss questions that arise from your new insights. Infuse your sermons with the confidence and conviction that comes from a greater understanding of Scripture and its historical and cultural context. Learn new ways to apply the stories of the Patriarchs’ lives to your life.

Minister more effectively. These resources give you everything you need to hit the ground running—which means less time in meetings and at your desk, and more time doing the work of ministry. You get to focus on your strengths and leave the heavy lifting to us.

Stay organized. This program helps you coordinate all your ministry programs. With a single, shared curriculum, your media and worship teams, small group leaders, Sunday school teachers, and everyone else can stay in the loop. This means fewer phone calls and last-minute surprises for you—and more time in the Word for your church.

Help your church get connected. This collection connects people in your small groups to each other, and connects your small groups to the Sunday-morning experience. The topics in each small group Bible study integrate with your sermons. Best of all, everything is centered on the Word, so your church gets a complete, shared Bible study experience.

Deeper Bible Study—All Week Long

Leading up to Sunday, you have everything you need to get started on your sermon—a sample outline, key points in the text, exegesis, and more. We’ve done the biblical research for you, so you can focus on preparing your sermon and connecting with your congregation.

On Sunday morning, video introductions set the stage for your sermon, and custom-designed slides complement your preaching. Your media team has everything they need—the presentation is ready to go right of the box, but you can customize it as much as you want. Your congregation follows along with bulletin inserts. Everything flows, elegantly and seamlessly.

During the following week, your small groups and individuals in the congregation who have the individual study guide can unpack the text and the topics you talked about on Sunday. The curriculum is perfect for all types of learners and interest levels. Leaders get handouts, videos, and discussion questions to help guide the group, so they’ll need to purchase this edition. Everyone else will have a self-study book available separately so they can participate to the fullest—and prepare for the next Sunday.

This comprehensive program will help your entire church dig deeper into the Bible, together.

  • A complete introduction to the life of a patriarch

    When will the Jacob and Joseph portions be released? They are now marked as "Gathering Interest" which indicates that release date is not currently scheduled, at least no time soon. Not sure why I had to wait until Dec 5 to get the Abraham portion since it was already released.
