Staff Pick – Daily Disciples Bible Study Series

IMAG0137.jpg pic3Each week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

My favorite collection that we offer is the Daily Disciples Bible Study Series.  I was actually first referred to this series by one of my customers last year, and I now use this program for my Bible study and have enjoyed its content greatly.  This series does a good job of providing unique perspectives, displaying meaningful devotionals as well as asking some discussion questions that really work well for a group setting.

How To Become a Godly Man of Character

men_characterLet’s talk for a few minutes about becoming Men of Character. It’s something we all want to do, especially in today’s culture that cries out for men of character. WORDsearch has just released a 9-volume study by Dr. Gene Getz, the author of our popular Life Essentials Study Bible. Dr. Getz’ brilliant new series is titled Men of Character.

Men of Character is the perfect title for this series because it has a double-meaning. First, it is a study of 9 role models found in the Bible who can be described as “Men of Character.” Secondly, this title is a promise of what you and I can, and should become. Each volume is available individually, and purchased that way you’d spend $116.55. For this introductory offer we’ve bundled all 9 volumes and priced them at just $59.95 for a limited time. Click here to order your bundle today. If you prefer to order by phone, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 6534.

Men of Character — For Real Men Like Us
The Men of Character Series provides an intense study of the lives of 9 Godly men from the Bible including: Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David, Elijah, Daniel and Paul. These guys were certainly favored by God and they all belong in the Men of Character Hall of Fame. But this is no sanitized study of flawless men. Far from it. We learn as much from their sad mistakes, sins, and acts of selfishness as we do from their acts of faith. Don’t even get me started on Getz’ chapters about David and Bathsheba, which by the way, should be studied by every Christian man. It’s revealing, humbling and inspiring.

Sermons, Small-Groups and Solo Studies
Each Men of Character volume is divided into 12 or 13 chapters that follow the life of a Bible character. This makes it perfect for small-group weekly studies. You’ll find enough material to last over 2 years. If you preach, you’ll find the lessons are laid out in a way that is ideal for taking to the pulpit. Dr. Getz is a gifted expositor and Bible teacher. Everything he writes, you can almost hear it being preached. Personally, I appreciate using Men of Character for my own personal study. If you’re like me, you’ll find it shaping you to become a better man.

Each lesson begins with reading a passage of Scripture. Then Dr. Getz puts this passage into perspective with an engaging challenge, or personal story. For example, as I was studying the life of Abraham, Getz began one chapter with these words:

Have you ever felt great about your relationship with God and suddenly the bottom drops out? You’ve committed your life to the Lord, to follow Him fully, and then everything seemed to go south. Welcome to the Christian Club. It’s not a new experience.

Okay, that got my attention. I think we’ve all felt this way, and so did Abraham. Getz delivers Godly insight that helps us learn from great men of God. Every chapter has a section called Becoming God’s Man Today which includes 2 or 3 principles to live by. This is followed by Personalizing These PrinciplesSet a Goal, Memorize the Following Scripture and Growing Together which offers a few questions designed for small-group discussion.

Try It and You’ll Be Delighted
Every once in a while, a mentor comes along with advice that is so wise, it lifts our walk with the Lord to a higher level. Gene Getz is that kind of a mentor. I’d like to invite you to try the Men of Character Bundle and experience it for yourself. Whether you use this resource for preaching, teaching or personal study, I think you’ll be delighted with the knowledge, encouragement, and insight that shapes men of character. If not, I’ll be happy to refund your purchase. JUST CLICK HERE.If you have any questions or would like to bundle this with any other books, call us at 1-800-888-9898 and mention special offer 6534.
