Focus on the Family - Dr. James Dobson
We will be studying 3 four week Bible Studies from Dr. James Dobson.
Facilitated by Tracy Shaw
Your Legacy: You'll leave a spiritual legacy, but what kind will it be? As Dr. Dobson shares what his ancestors passed down in their family-trust in Jesus Christ and living for God-this thought-provoking Bible study will guide you through evaluating the type of spiritual legacy you are leaving to your children and grandchildren.
This parenting expert knows: discipline-dispensed by parents with conviction and courage, and in an environment of pure love-works. Help for parents of children and teens is on the way in this practical study that addresses: boundaries, motivating without anger, actions and consequences, and respect and being worthy of it.
Who's in charge at your house? Does childish or deviant behavior abound? Noted parenting authority James Dobson helps you understand the difference between irresponsibility in children-because children can't carry excessive adult levels of responsibility yet-and willful defiance; why children push boundaries and their inherent nature; and compliant versus defiant children.
TRACK TWO: Bible / Theology | Room A104
Read the Bible for Life by George Guthrie
Facilitated by Matt Stevens
The Bible may be the most-purchased book in the world, but it is often the least read and least applied due to a basic lack of understanding and motivation on the part of readers. Read the Bible for Life aims to improve biblical literacy in the culture and the church by simultaneously moving readers toward greater skill in reading the Bible well and toward a deeper commitment to applying Scripture to everyday life.
Through a series of down-to-earth conversations with some of today’s brightest scholars, author George Guthrie discusses the basic tools and attitudes needed to read the Bible more effectively. Chapters focus on the various types of literature in Scripture and how to read them well. For instance, how should we read a psalm differently than we read a parable?
How should we read a story of the Old Testament differently than we read a letter from Paul? How can we engage these various parts of Scripture in a way that is truly life-changing? The book also discusses issues such as reading the Bible in context, choosing and reading a Bible translation, reading in times of sorrow or suffering, and reading the Bible with your family. As we better understand how to read the Bible skillfully, we begin to see how every person of the Bible, every psalm, and every teaching fits into the Bible’s powerful, overarching story, and we begin to realize our place in the story God is still writing in the world.
