A Doubter's Guide To The Bible
The Bible is the most influential book in history, yet remains unexplored by many. In A Doubter's Guide to the Bible, John Dickson gives those observing Christianity from the outside a sense of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires.
A Doubter's Guide to the Bible is a concise account of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires, representing a unique and engaging framework for those observing Christianity from the outside, especially those who think there are good reasons not to believe.
In this book, Dickson provides a readable and winsome Bible primer summarizing the main themes in scripture, and addresses tough questions such as "How can we read the creation account in Genesis in light of modern science " and, "how do we approach Old Testament law when it appears inconsistent and irrelevant"
By presenting the whole of the Bible as an account of God's promise to restore humanity to Himself, and humanity to one another and to creation, Dickson allows believers and skeptics alike to gain insight into why the Bible has been a compelling, life-changing, and magnetic force throughout the ages.

Joseph Study Guide
We all have dreams for how our lives will-or should-turn out. Many times these are dreams that have been impressed on us by God himself. But when will they stop being dreams and turn into reality? When will these dreams be fulfilled? And what do you do in the meantime?
Joseph: Waiting on God's Timing, Living in God's Plan is a six-session video-based Bible study examining the life of the biblical character of Joseph, the ultimate dreamer, giving you insight into the power of your choices as you wait on God while pursing your dreams.
As a teenager, Joseph had big dreams, but events seemed to circumvent those dreams and landed him in slavery in Egypt. Through this experience Joseph learned to trust in God's plan for his life, remain obedient and make wise choices, even when they resulted in a jail sentence! Ultimately, Joseph realized his dreams and was reunited and reconciled with his family and was able to be used by God to save millions of people from starvation.
God has dreams for your life as well. If you wait on God's perfect timing, make wise and biblical choices, you too, like Joseph, can see your God-given dreams become reality.
In this entertaining and enlightening video-based Bible study, Michelle McKinney Hammond will help you:
- Learn how relationships affect our destiny
- Unite your desires with God's purposes
- Walk faithfully with God as you wait on his timing
This fresh look at Joseph helps you discover new insights and provides a powerful witness to God's timing and plan for you that will leave you feeling challenged, encouraged, and deeply valued.
Study Guide is also available (sold separately).
