Creation to Christ – 10 Sessions

Sometimes in a setting where you do not have as much time – such as a University semester – you will need to accelerate the Creation to Christ study. Here is a version that is only 10 sessions long – but note that it is quite a bit of content in each session so you will need more time per session – minimum of 2 hours and can be 3+ hours. Again, note that you will want to pray and work to make needed adjustments to the situation and worldview of those you serve.

Sola Scriptura: is the Bible alone enough?

… Discovery Bible Study (DBS) does not mean Bible teachers are wrong or bad. We should all be learning from each other, and from others; books and published studies are ways to access the wisdom of many. I have learned much from the writings of people like C. S. Lewis, N. T. Wright, Beth Moore, and Tim Keller, to name just a few.

That said, the power of DBS is that it gets us into the text itself, and teaches us to listen to the revelation of God, which is profitable for application to daily life.

Sola Scriptura means Scripture is all we need. Reading endless commentaries, studies, books, and hymns on 1 Corinthians 13 isn’t the point of life–the point is to live it out, and for that, we need little more than the text itself and a willingness to put it into practice on a daily basis.
