Building Your Own Bible Study

Building Your Own Bible Study banner

There are many great ways to study the Bible.

This Library is filled with dozens of great tested guides that are ready for small group use on a variety topics! You can even check out our friends at Intervarsity press for literally hundreds of Bible study guides.  

But we also believe that one of the most powerful ways of studying God’s Word is to simply build your own Bible study from scratch.  

Here’s how you do it: simply focus on a passage of Scripture, don’t bring any particular agenda, and let the Word of God speak for itself.  

We call this an InterVarsity-Style Inductive Bible Study and for decades, students and faculty have been leading this method of scripture study to help their friends meet God and be transformed by God’s word.
