Editor: Abingdon Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Go the distance in the life of faith. Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed spiritual stamina in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too! In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in every season. Bible Study Features: Examine the life of the prophet Elijah. Learn practical disciplines that give us spiritual stamina for every season in life. Grow in faith and be inspired by an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God. Be enabled to not just survive but thrive in the midst of the ups and downs of life. The participant workbook, to be used along with the study's DVD, includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six sessions of about 25 minutes each, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible study’s components). A companion Prayer Devotional is also available.

Discovering God Through the Lives of Elijah and Elisha

Explanation of the Book:

Knowledge is power; therefore knowing God is incredibly powerful. However, learning to recognize God's personality is life changing. Each chapter of "Discovering God Through Elijah and Elisha: Bible Study Guide," is designed to demonstrate how to recognize God's influence. The actor hidden in every Bible scene is God Himself. While studying 1 Kings 16 through 2 Kings 10, the reader learns to automatically look for God's character, values, and personality. Spiritual growth in faith, prayer, worship, and obedience result as the explorer discovers God. Special themes in the book include: How do I know if God is speaking to me? Does faith mean going against common sense? Why don't I see God at work in my life and the lives of my friends? Can I really trust God to meet my needs? How can God be both loving and wrathful? How can I choose the best version and Bible style for me? This study guide has something for every Christian. The new believer is trained to interpret scripture using other Bible passages. As the reader discovers the similarity between John the Baptist and Elijah, then compares Elisha with Joshua and Jesus, suddenly obscure Old Testament stories become understandable. Through practice the novice can find and apply biblical principles to the issues they are facing. Even those who have studied scripture for decades often confuse Elijah and Elisha. Not only are their names similar, but these prophets lived during a difficult time in biblical history. Judah and Israel had kings with similar names. Jayna not only explains the significance of each event, but also describes the culture, so that each verse is clear. The style of this book is like the workbooks written by Beth Moore and Henry Blackaby; however, there is no video to watch. Although this Bible Study is designed for an individual to meditate on scripture and write his or her answers inside the book, there are two chapters providing instructions as to how to use the book as a group Bible study. Often the thought-provoking questions will lead to a lively discussion. For an example, of how the book draws modern application from the Old Testament, CHAPTER 37 "Don't Waste Your Time on a God Substitute" reads: "When something happens in your life do you immediately call your spouse, or text a friend? When you need advice do you call your mom, search in Google, or go to Facebook? When you want prayer, do you email the prayer chain, or do you pray? If God isn't your first contact, you can learn a lot from this Shunammite mother." Jayna uses her own life experiences throughout the book to demonstrate how biblical principles are still relevant in every life. Learn to love and appreciate God as you discover Him in the lives of these miracle working men, and dedicated women. God has a mantle for you. Wear it well.

Explanation of the Book:

You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit. New York Times bestselling author Priscilla Shirer, widely known for her international speaking, teaching, and writing ministries, brings her new role from the 2015 film War Room into the real lives of today’s women, addressing the topics that affect them most: renewing their passion, refocusing their identity, negotiating family strife, dealing with relentless regrets, navigating impossible schedules, succeeding against temptation, weathering their worst fears, uprooting bitterness, and more. Each chapter exposes the enemy’s cruel, crafty intentions in all kinds of these areas, then equips and encourages you to write out your own personalized prayer strategies on tear-out sheets you can post and pray over yourself and your loved ones on a regular basis. Fervent is a hands-on, knees-down, don’t-give-up action guide to practical, purposeful praying.

Explanation of the Book:

From telemarketers to traffic jams to twenty-item shoppers in the ten-item line, our lives are full of interruptions. They're often aggravating, sometimes infuriating, and can make us want to tell people what we really think about them. But they also tell us something quite important about ourselves. The prophet Jonah's life was interrupted by a clear call of God that made him mad enough and scared enough to run in the completely opposite direction. Yet it wasn't really an interruption. It was an opportunity for Jonah to be involved in something the likes of which the Old Testament world had never seen: national revival in a Gentile country. What if Jonah had seen God's interruption for what it truly was—a divine intervention that held more adventure and possibility than any other thing he could have been doing at the time? What could have felt any better than being directly in the center of God's will? Yet we play it that same way—always running from major pains and minor problems that just don't seem to suit us at the time. Who knows what we're missing by being so interruption avoidant? In this very personal account of opportunities lost and lessons learned, popular conference speaker and author Priscilla Shirer shows how to embrace the amazing freedom and fulfillment that comes from going with God, even when He's going against your grain. .

Explanation of the Book:

What does it mean to praise God? In the ancient world, something extraordinary happened when God's people gathered to worship Him. It was more than just singing; it was a declaration, a proclamation, a time to fully embody praise to God for who He is and what he has done. In fact, in the Psalms, seven Hebrew words are translated into the English word praise, each of which represents a different aspect of what it means to truly praise God. In Holy Roar, Chris Tomlin and Darren Whitehead share a fresh perspective from the worship practices of the ancient world. Grow in your understanding of praise as Darren offers unique insights. Be inspired as Chris shares how those insights take shape in the stories behind some of your favorite worship songs, including "How Great Is Our God," "We Fall Down," and "Good Good Father." Whether for your own personal use or for use in your church small group, Holy Roar provides insight and encouragement to deepen your practice of praise. Become a part of the Holy Roar.
