The Great Story & Your Story: Connecting the Bible to Everyday Lives offers 12 weeks of engaging, relationship-building Bible study for new Christians or those already familiar with the scriptures, regardless of age. This study is also ideal for intergenerational group settings.
Intergenerational Bible study. Appropriate for all ages.
Each week there is an opportunity to read a relevant scripture, hear the Biblical story in a new way, and listen to an example of how the passages connected to the lives of the co-authors, Dr. Richard Morgan (a retired pastor and professor, age 80+), and Beth Sanders (a female business owner, age 40+). The book then challenges the group participants to delve into their own life experiences, lessons, joys, and struggles to find their own connection to the Great Story. This book also has an invaluable Leader’s Guide, plus Heartfelt Letter (Ethical Will) and Faith Story templates. It provides creative ideas for closing the class by celebrating the participant’s stories in the small group and/or in church worship.
