In this six-session, video-based curriculum, author and pastor John R. W. Stott—recently named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine—addresses key areas of Christian beliefs in his typical clear, balanced, biblically based, and intellectually rigorous manner. John Stott on the Bible and the Christian Life, a six-session, video-based study, highlights the “dual-author” nature of the Bible, biblical interpretation, the problem of culture, as well as other biblical issues that relate to the Christian life.
In Session 1, “The Authority of the Bible,” you will discuss the authority crisis of today and learn the benefits of living a life that is submitted to Christ and the Scriptures.
In Session 2, “The Double Authorship of Scripture,” you will discuss the similarities of the dual authorship of the Bible with the two natures of Christ and learn the importance of pairing prayer with Bible study.
In Session 3, “Basic Principles of Bible Interpretation,” you will learn God’s communication principles and how you can apply what he spoke through Scripture into your life.
In Session 4, “The Problem of Culture,” you will learn the aspects of your culture that affect how you study the Bible and discuss how cultural “blind spots” can impact the church.
In Session 5, “Developing a Christian Mind,” you will learn how Scripture helps you think in a more spiritually mature way and how you can view secular topics through this filter.
In Session 6, “Making an Impact on Society,” you will learn how the Christian community contrasts with the non-Christian community and discover the six weapons you have to become an agent of change.
