As small group leaders, we can become used to leading groups, and we start to approach our topics, Bible studies, and even the Bible from such a perspective.
How can I talk about this topic with my group?
What does my group most need from these Bible study videos?
What discussion question will most resonate with my members?
This way of thinking can be deeply helpful, but sometimes, those who help others can neglect to be helped themselves.
How can we make sure that we are not only aiding others in studying the Bible but engaging with it personally?
Lifeway might just have something to assist.

Includes an individual study opportunities for each day of the week and applicable Scripture.
We live in a radically skeptical age. Tough questions are being asked about Christianity. And most believers are ill-equipped to provide the answers our culture and communities desperately need. Many in today’s church do not know the Bible as well as they should and they struggle with their own “big questions” about the faith.
This study provides precisely what the church needs today: tools and answers! It addresses several challenging topics, including mental health and suicide, paranormal activity, the resurrection, how we got the Bible, suffering, and why God is sometimes silent. The study will show you how to answer, how to explain, and how to respond in a deeply winsome and attractive way, as a thoughtful ambassador of Jesus. You will leave this study enriched, characterized by a thinking faith, capable to communicate confidently, and committed to escape the tendency to offer trite answers to a skeptical world.
Bestselling author Dr. Tony Evans shows that it’s through the names of God that the nature of God is revealed to us. Who is God in His fullness? How has He expressed His riches and righteousness? How can you trust His goodness? As you get to know the names of God and understand their meaning, God’s character will become real to you in life-changing ways.
You will explore the depths of God as
- Elohim: The All-Powerful Creator
- Jehovah: The Self-Revealing One
- Adonai: The Owner of All
- Jehovah-Jireh: The Lord Who Provides
- El Shaddai: The Almighty Sufficient One
- El Elion: The Most High Ruler
- Jehovah Nissi: The Lord’s Banner of Victory
- Jehovah Shalom: The Lord Our Peace
- Jehovah Mekadesh: The Lord Who Sanctifies
- Jehovah Rophe: The Lord Who Heals
- Jehovah Tsikenu: The Lord My Righteousness
- Jehovah Robi: The Lord My Shepherd
- Immanuel: God With Us
By studying and understanding the characteristics of God as revealed through His names, you will be better equipped to face hardship and victory, loss and provision, and all of the challenges life throws at you.
