Description

One Saturday, less than a decade after the end of Jesus of Nazareth’s life, a man named Paul stood up in a Jewish synagogue with a mind-blowing message.

“We tell you the good news,” he said. “What God promised our fathers, he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus” (Acts 13 v 33-34).
In many ways, in these two sentences Paul was summing up the story of the whole of the Bible.

God is a promise-making God. Throughout history, He has made huge, extravagant, wonderful promises to humanity. Crucially, God is also a promise-keeping God. What He says, He does. And at a particular point in history, He fulfilled all of His promises in the life, death, resurrection and rule of one human—Jesus, a carpenter from a small Jewish town. The good news is that God's promises are promises kept.

This Good Book Guide will take you on a rapid tour of the whole story of the Bible. Over nine sessions, you’ll travel from the beginning of the past, through our present, to the future. Each session you'll discover one of God's wonderful promises, and see how He kept it in Jesus.

It’s a whirlwind tour. It’s a breathtaking tour. And it’s a tour we’re part of…

Other information

The Good Book Guides have been developed to ensure that each session not only seeks to uncover the meaning of the passage and see how it fits into the big picture of the Bible, but also leads people to apply what they have learnt to their lives. Flexible and practical, the Good Book Guides are ideal for small groups, or individual study.

The format is very user-friendly and the content is rich and accessible.

God-centered, application-oriented, and driven by the text throughout, this resource is a gift to God’s church.
- Matt Smethurst, Gospel Coalition reviewer and Master of Divinity student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Here at Covenant Life Church, we have greatly benefitted from the small group resources from The Good Book Company. Many small groups in our family life ministry have used "Colossians: Confident Christianity" in their study of scripture. Additionally, our youth ministry has used "Romans 1-5: God and You" in their small groups. Both resources were very easy to use, helped the reader engage directly with the scriptures, and had a wonderful pastoral emphasis demonstrated in all the questions.
- Dave Brewer, Youth Pastor at Covenant Life Church, Maryland
