Doctrinal Bible Studies: You Want Them? We’ve Got Them!
My colleague, Rev. Robert Baker, Senior Editor for Adult Bible Studies here at CPH recently answered a person who asked us what kind of substantial doctrinal studies do we offer. She expressed a concern that in her congregation the only adult study opportunities were pretty much lite and fluffy “How does this make you feel?” kind of stuff. Rev. Baker did a great job pointing her in the right direction and I thought you would appreciate his answer:
Dear Friends in Christ,
Thank you so much for contacting the Rev. Paul T. McCain about doctrinal Bible studies. As Paul suggested, Concordia Publishing House literally has hundreds of Bible studies in print, DVD, CD-ROM, and downloadable formats. Further, we are in the process of creating subscription-based, electronic formats that allow folks to assemble their own Bible studies using our vast Bible study library.
While you can view many these studies online here is a sampling of studies covering doctrinal topics:
The Lutheran Difference
This series contrasts Lutheran teaching, based on Scripture, with the teachings of other denominations, and is available as individual printed booklets (64 pp. each), downloadables, as a printed collection, on CD-ROM with PowerPoint, and now as a book!
LifeLight is our premiere, in-depth Bible study series consisting of lectures, daily questions and answers, and a full-color magazine. This series covers nearly every book in the Bible as well as numerous doctrinal topics.
Explores a number of topics such as prayer, God’s Word, and vocation, with a clear emphasis on the Scriptures, the Lutheran Confessions, and the Lutheran hymnal for a genuine, Lutheran spirituality. Available as individual printed booklets (64 pp. each), downloadables, as a printed collection, on CD-ROM with PowerPoint, and now as a book!
This series, available in print (participant) and downloadable (leader), provides an in-depth look at the doctrines presented in the Lutheran Confessions as drawn from the Scriptures. Four books in this series.
Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
May God bless you as you study His life-giving Word!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Robert C. Baker, MDiv, MS
