NEW Finding Jesus in the Psalms: A Lenten Journey

Author Audience

Adam Hamilton Adult Individual/ Small Group This study explores the life of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke’s stories we find Jesus’ care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus’ concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today.

Barb Roose Adult Individual/ Small Group This study combines an interpretation of the psalms with real life stories, moving through the familiar words of Psalm 23 toward the painful cries of Psalm 22 uttered by Jesus on the cross. Includes reflections and context on King David’s life and writings, along with connections between the psalms and the life and death of Jesus.

You’re invited to come alongside Max as he shares meaningful, insights on the people and places that shaped Jesus’ life. In this special compilation, Max weaves together in-depth teaching from his bestsellers with poignant reflections on his time in the Holy Land, guiding you through three distinct aspects of Jesus’ life.

NEW The Sanctuary for Lent 2023

Amy-Jill Levine Adult Individual/ Small Group

Taylor W. Mills Devotional/Study

Josh Scott Devotional/Study

Amy-Jill Levine shows how the people at the cross each have distinct roles to play and how each presents a distinct picture of the death of Jesus. From each we learn how those meanings and messages cross the centuries to any who would come to the cross today.

This book serves as a guide through the weeks of Lent, helping us explore qualities and characteristics of Christian discipleship that demonstrate following Jesus is our highest priority. The chapters and daily readings challenge our thoughts, words, and actions in light of the teachings of Jesus.

This annual favorite contains brief readings for each day in Lent, from Ash Wednesday through Easter Day, including a suggested Scripture, a short devotion, and a closing prayer—all based on the Revised Common Lectionary. An excellent gift for family, friends, those with special needs, or as a congregational resource.

Author Audience Description

NEW Struggle to the Cross: A Lenten Study for Individuals and Groups Sharma D. Lewis Adult Individual/ Small Group Invites readers to observe Lent by introspection, repentance, forgiveness, renewal, prayer, fasting and Biblical study. Each daily reading invites readers to put into practice what they have read and reflected upon. Each Sunday, readers journal on the past week’s study using questions provided by the author.

The Lord’s Prayer: The Meaning and Power of the Prayer Jesus Taught Adam Hamilton Adult Individual/ Small Group Adam Hamilton guides us to really know—and really pray—the Lord’s Prayer. He explores each of its rich lines and their meaning in the Bible, illuminating what we ask of God and what we ask of ourselves through its words. And he teaches us how to use it as a pattern for our own prayer life.

Adults, youth, and children alike can experience a season of spiritual growth and lifechanging renewal in this study. You’ll follow the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus through the Gospel of John and understand the context of some of the best-known verses in the New Testament.

Explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story, raising ethical and spiritual questions for readers, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience. Provides a rich and challenging learning experience for small groups and individuals alike as part of a larger 6-week study that is perfect for Lent.

Explores several biblically based ways of understanding Jesus’ death on the cross that may go beyond the explanations you’ve heard. By exploring the mystery of salvation through the cross, you’ll find a deeper love for God and others while strengthening your commitment to follow Jesus.

He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. He was poor, uneducated, quicktempered, and full of doubts and fears. Can this be the same man? That’s the point of this Bible study. Peter was just an ordinary guy who heard and followed God’s extraordinary call.
