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.

A Customer Testimonial – Pastor Tyrone Hayes Sr.

When I first was called into the ministry, my understanding of the Bible was very limited. I was blessed to have a good Sunday school teacher who gave me a good foundation of the Bible. I was also blessed to have a good pastor who knew the word of God. The Lord was still dealing with me because I was hungry to have a closer walk with the Lord, and today I still have this hunger for walking and knowing the word of God. I tell my congregation that there are not enough hours in the day for studying the word of God. I was blessed again when the Lord directed me to another excellent Bible scholar by the name of Pastor Bill; a friend and a brother. God has been good to me.

Staff Pick – Children’s Edition of Touching Incidents and Remarkable Answers to Prayer

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

I have always been interested in history. Specifically, the way technology, religious beliefs and social customs work together to paint a picture of daily life. I first became interested in history in this way when I started trying to discern what God was trying to tell me as I studied the Bible. I found that many passages and lessons took on a different meaning when I knew more about the sociopolitical environment from which the author was writing.

It is for this reason that I immediately thought of the Children’s Edition of Touching Incidents and Remarkable Answers to Prayer by Rev. S. B. Shaw when I was told to pick a favorite book that I had worked on. The children’s edition of Touching Incidents (you will forgive me if I don’t type out the full title every time!) was published in 1895, the author adding illustrations to make the book more palatable to a younger audience. The very existence of this book in a children’s edition shows a huge change in moral and social ideals from the late 1800’s to today.
