From Surface Reading to a Deeper Understanding of the Bible

If you want to move from the biblical text to contemporary life on solid ground, this series has been written for you. The Bringing the Bible to Life series, a companion to Zondervan’s NIV Application Commentary, is intended to bring both the historical meaning of the biblical text and its contemporary significance.

Each guide provides an introduction to the biblical book, six to twelve sessions with discussion questions, and a closing section that assists the group in responding to God’s Word together or individually. A Leader’s Guide helps busy people prepare to lead the study.

The Bringing the Bible to Life Bible Study series is ideal for use in both a small group setting and for individual study.
