Spring is here, and our 2022 Lifeway Women Simulcast will be here before we know it! If you’re like us and can’t wait, we have several Bible studies for you to dig into before then.
Here are some recommendations for spring studies from our Lifeway Women Simulcast speakers:
Jude by Jackie Hill Perry | 7 Sessions
While often overlooked, the book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.
In this 7-session study from Jackie Hill Perry, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.
God of Freedom by Jen Wilkin | 10 Sessions
Every book of the Bible tells us what is true about God. In Exodus, we see Him as our strong Deliverer who sets us free from sin and death to worship Him through obedience.
Through this 10-session study of Exodus 19–40, Jen Wilkin revisits the familiar scenes of the giving of the Ten Commandments, the idolatrous worship of a golden calf, and the intricate details of the tabernacle. With fresh perspective, we learn to trace the promise of Christ throughout and to ask what these stories teach God’s children today about how to live as those set free.
Amos by Jennifer Rothschild | 8 Sessions (Coming August 2022)
Amos is often called a prophet of doom. And when you begin to read his prophecy, it doesn’t take long to realize that nickname fits. On the surface, his prophecy doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a cry for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). In Jennifer Rothschild’s newest study, you’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. This kind of living will bring us and others around us peace and true prosperity.
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. Join Kelly Minter as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
World on Fire by Jada Edwards and more*
Does it feel like no matter where you look or what the issue is, everyone seems to be fighting about everything? Whatever those nearest to you seem to be arguing about today, and no matter what the fire looks like in your neck of the woods, Jesus has an answer for the ways His kingdom citizens should walk as they navigate the flames in His power and posture.
In their own unique voice and in their own unique way, each contributor in World on Fire welcomes you to come explore not only some of the polarizing issues of our day, but also how the unexpected wisdom of Jesus might help us be more discerning and Christlike amidst them.
*World on Fire is authored by Hannah Anderson, Jada Edwards, Rachel Gilson, Ashley Marivittori Gorman, Jasmine L. Holmes, Rebecca McLaughlin, Jen Pollock Michel, Mary Wiley, and Elizabeth Woodson. Jada Edwards will be speaking at the 2022 Lifeway Women Simulcast.
The Gospel on the Ground by Kristi McLelland | 7 Sessions (Coming May 2022)
Come along with biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland as she unpacks the life of the early church in the book of Acts and shows us that the kingdom of God is always on the move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. In this study, you’ll see how God’s Word can sustain us even in the most difficult of times and embrace the transformative grace we experience as children of God in His kingdom of celebration.
In View of God’s Mercies by Courtney Doctor | 9 Sessions
The gospel doesn’t just change your eternal future; it changes your present reality. In this study on the book of Romans, Courtney Doctor will walk you through Paul’s powerful letter to see the glorious grace and transforming work of the gospel. You’ll be overwhelmed with the good news of God’s merciful rescue as you better understand the depth of your need. This life-changing message provides not only hope for eternity, but purpose, joy, and peace for today. And as the good news of the gospel of grace unfolds through Romans, it will compel you to proclaim God’s glorious salvation to all.
