Pastors and ministers have one of the most challenging jobs on earth. Of all their tasks, one responsibility they cannot neglect is teaching the word of God. Unfortunately, church leaders seldom have enough time to prepare Bible studies for their congregations. This book is a quick resource to help fill the gap. These thematically arranged Bible studies each contain an introduction to a topic and a list of relevant Scripture readings for that topic. Pastors can use the introduction to spark discussion within small groups or to focus on the specific themes during sermon writing. Many have stated that Volume 1 is a great resource, and it is my prayer that Volume 2 is a great resource as well. ""Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, . . . teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age"" (Matt 28:19-20). ""These Bible study lessons are an excellent resource on a variety of relevant topics and sermon preparation. This resource book should be in every pastor's and minister's library. It is destined to be a classic for years to come."" --James C. Davis Senior Pastor Nollies Chapel Missionary Baptist Church ""Dr. Davis, the consummate colleague, shares with busy pastors and Christian educators the fruit of his sincere devotion to the Bible and considerable experience as a teaching pastor. You will find him, as I have, a trustworthy journey partner through the scriptures and a no-holds-barred prophet in addressing the times and requirements of the times. The 'Introduction' alone is well worth your attention; the studies, worth mining for years to come. Welcome to his workshop!"" --James B. Johnson II Pastor Williamsburg Baptist Church Reginald F.
