Adult Crossings Starter Pack

$137.95

The Bible contains hundreds of stories-thousands of names. How does a person begin to understand and remember it all?

 

Adult Crossings is a unique Bible overview. It explores what many scholars consider the eight core stories of the Bible. This is what theologian Walter Brueggemann calls "the primal narrative-that most simple, elemental, and non-negotiable story line that lies at the heart of biblical faith." This study is perfect for a whole-congregation Bible emphasis, small group study, or new member classes. The core stories include:

1. God's Call

2. The Exodus

3. Sinai Covenant

4. Promised Land

5. Davidic Rule

6. Jesus' Life

7. The Cross

8. Resurrection Life

 

By studying these ancient stories we can begin to see how God continues to act, here and now, in us and through us.
