Apps in the Bible * is a 12-part small group topical Bible study series, each session focusing on an aspect of the Bible equivalent to today's apps: mail, messaging, etc.
Bible Pathways * is a 66-part small group Bible study series, written to provide a one-hour weekly study session, each session focusing on one book of the Bible. Designed so a weekly session will cover the entire Bible in one year.
One Night With The King! * is a four part study to accompany the 2006 film of the same name. The book of Esther is called the greatest short story in Jewish literature. This Bible book may make no mention of God at all, but it has everything else! A wild party with an open bar, a banished queen, a harem, eavesdoppers, plots, a beautiful new queen with a big secret, an evil villain, a harem, seven eunichs, and chaos in the streets! "It could be that you were made queen for a time like this!"
