1 & 2 Thessalonians: Rise and Shine!
Prosperous, prominent, and thoroughly pagan sums up the city of Thessalonica. Paul's "Macedonian Call" brought him here with the gospel seed that took root and changed lives. Challenged to "Rise and Shine!" and make a difference, these early Christians portrayed a faith that was absolutely contagious.
The Courageous Living Bible study series has been developed to aid in adult Bible studies. From one-on-one to large group adult Bible classes, this series of study guides is designed to fit with any church's adult curriculum. Additionally, some churches have used them effectively in college classes. Each book is formatted the same, with four pages of easy-to-read fully outlined texts followed by one page called Digging Deeper—thought/discussion-type questions. There are twelve lessons per book, allowing for a possible missed class (due to gospel meetings, VBS, weather event, etc.), or the teacher may simply choose to review during the thirteenth week. With an eye-catching full color cover design, each 60-page book can be tucked easily into a medium-sized Bible.
