MennoMedia releases new Bible study series
‘With the Word’ makes fresh connections between Bible and daily living
By Cynthia Linscheid
HARRISONBURG, Va., and WATERLOO, Ont.—Adults wanting to make fresh connections between the Bible and daily living have a new study option. With the Word is a new series of Bible studies focused on individual books of the Bible, with accompanying devotions on the same text and theme.
“This series grows out of customer requests for resources that combine Bible study and devotional reading into one accessible piece,” says Amy Gingerich, director of print media for MennoMedia. “We’ve also had requests for study materials on a specific book of the Bible. With the Word responds to these needs.”
Each With the Word study includes eight to 12 short study sessions, followed by seven brief devotionals on the same theme. Optional leader suggestions are included, making the studies suitable for groups or individuals.
“We hope people will get more out of the study if they’re able to keep coming back to the theme as they use the devotionals throughout the week,” says Gingerich. “And, because the studies are easy to read and don’t take a lot of advance preparation, we think they’ll help both new believers and more experienced Christians dive right into the biblical content.”
Canadian customer service and marketing manager Kathy Shantz is pleased to have another Bible study option to recommend to customers. “Adults are always looking for flexible materials like this, to use in small groups or classes or at home. It’s great to have something new to suggest,” says Shantz.
The first title in the new series is a 10-session study on Psalms. A study on Luke will be released in December 2011. Two studies are also projected for release in 2012.
