9780830858040: Proverbs/Ecclesiastes/James (Understanding the Books of the Bible)

Did you know you could read and study the Bible without using any chapters or verses? The books of the Bible are real "books." They're meant to be experienced the same way other books are: as exciting, interesting works that keep you turning pages right to the end and then make you want to go back and savor each part. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series of study guides will help you do that with the Bible. While you can use these guides with any version or translation, they're especially designed to be used with The Books of The Bible, an edition of the Scriptures from Biblica that takes out the chapter and verse numbers and presents the biblical books in their natural form.  Written with careful attention to the original language, historical setting and literary structure of each book, these guides are great for individual study, Sunday School classes, and small group Bible studies. They make a great next step for churches and other groups that have done a Community Bible Experience with Biblica.

From the Author:

I had the wonderful opportunity to go through the 15 sessions on Proverbs in this guide with a group of students in a weekly Bible study one summer. The approach the guide takes to that book worked out even better than I could have imagined.  We had amazing discussions on a wide range of practical topics. The time just flew by. Several of the students liked the guide so much they continued using it that fall to study the books of Ecclesiastes and James. I'm sure you'll have the same kind of experience with the guide yourself.

From the Inside Flap:

If you think that the real test of religion is how it works out in everyday life, you're not alone. Several books in the Bible look primarily at how believing in God can help a person live the best possible life right here and now, on this earth.

These books--Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and James--explain how to draw on your faith to develop a style of practical living that's honest, generous, and fair. They do this by sharing insights preserved in short, memorable sayings passed down from generation to generation. Some of these sayings make provocative observations that invite us to reflect on life: "Those who love money never have enough; those who love wealth are never satisfied with their income." Other sayings use illustrations drawn from the natural world: "Can both fresh and salt water come from the same spring?" And many make a striking impression through the vivid pictures they create: "Rushing into a quarrel that's not your own is like grabbing a stray dog by the ears."

For followers of Jesus, life after death is going to be great--but how about some life before death? If you want to see the impact that believing in God can have on your daily life right now, get together with some friends and explore the timeless wisdom that these books have to share.

(Maybe you're surprised that James is included in this study guide with two books from the First Testament. James is often grouped with the letters in the New Testament, but it actually has much more in common with Proverbs and Ecclesiastes than it does with those letters. The book of James is concerned with practical living as an expression of genuine faith, and it communicates through short statements and vivid illustrations just like Proverbs and Ecclesiastes.)
