Onward Bible Study Book includes small-group experiences for six sessions, personal study opportunities each week, applicable Scripture, tips for leading a small group, and “How to Use This Study.” As the culture changes all around us, it is no longer possible for Christians to pretend that we are a moral majority. That may be bad news for America, but it can be good news for the church. Nominal Christianity isn’t working anymore. What's needed now, in shifting times, is neither a doubling-down on the status quo nor a retreat into isolation. Instead, we need a church that speaks to social and political issues with a bigger vision in mind: that of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As Christianity seems increasingly strange—and even subversive—to our culture, we have the opportunity to embrace the distinctiveness of the Christian faith and to be marginalized for the sake of the gospel. Sessions cover: -Kingdom -Culture -Mission -Human Dignity -Family Stability -Convictional Kindness Features: -Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content -Leader tips -Personal study opportunities for weekly spiritual growth -Group and personal components -Group experiences designed to generate discussions and application, based on Moore’s - weekly video teachings Benefits: -Understand how the kingdom of God sets our priorities as believers and gives us perspective on cultural issues. -Discuss difficult cultural issues with the help of a voice of integrity. -Explore how Jesus announced the kingdom, indicted the culture, and embraced the cross. -Learn how doing “good things” in society must be accompanied by speaking redemptively. -Gain greater clarity on why human dignity matters to God. -Help groups avoid a siege mentality and see themselves on the right side of history. -Accept the role of being marginalized in the larger culture for the sake of the gospel.
