20 Questions

If you can read 20 Questions, you can lead a Bible Study.

Not sure you know the answer to the questions? No worries.

We provide answers in the form of quotes from people like Charles Swindoll, David Jeremiah, and John Ortberg that will make you sound brilliant.

Why we must discuss

We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. Paul said, “SPEAKING the truth… we grow.” Jesus said it is what comes out of a man that changes him. James said your words are the rudder of your life. Effective teachers lead people to speak the truth, not just hear the truth.

Weary of Struggling to Recruit Teachers?

A common problem in all churches–big churches and little churches–is the need for more workers. Jesus said it would be true. He said, “the harvest is plentiful is but the workers are few.” Question-based Bible Study Lessons makes recruiting teachers a whole lot easier.

Knowing God

“A hundred years from now only a handful of books written today will still be widely read and accepted as Christian classics. Dr. James I. Packer’s Knowing God may well prove to be one of them. A gifted theologian and writer, Dr. Packer has the rare ability to deal with profound and basic spiritual truths in a practical and highly readable way. This book will help every reader grasp in a fuller way one of the Bible’s greatest truths: that we can know God personally, because God wants us to know him.” Billy Graham

The Pursuit of Holiness

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do—and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

What effective Bible teachers do between class sessions

There has never been a better time to be a Bible Teacher than today. This is true on several levels. For one thing, we have incredible tools at our fingertips that make Bible Study so much easier.

A no-good, terrible, very bad day

I believe that two of the great skills that we can learn in this life are first to treasure our friends, but more than that, to learn to be a friend who is a treasure to others. A few days ago I had a no-good, terrible, full-of-frustration day. Probably the bottom line was that I was grumpy. I was tired. I was trying to...

We can teach our way our of any problem

There is an old saying that goes, “We are going to teach our way out of this problem.” Here is what he means. Suppose you have a giving problem in your church. You are not meeting budget. You are not able to meet expenses. You have bills that are unpaid. You have cut back everywhere possible, but there are still bills to be paid....

Don’t Exaggerate the Negative

The fourth mistake Elijah made is that he exaggerated the negative. He said, “I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too” (v. 10). Elijah held a little pity party for himself: “Everybody’s against me.” But the fact is that almost nobody was against him. Only one person violently opposed him, and her threat...

Do church goers behave differently?

I have heard this stat for years: 75% of churches are plateaued or declining. Here is the latest: Based on our research of 557 churches from 2004 to 2010, nine out of ten churches in America are declining or growing at a pace that is slower than that of their communities. Simply stated, churches are losing ground in their own...

The need of the hour

We desperately need an army of Effective Bible Teachers. What is an Effective Bible Teacher? An Effective Bible Teacher teaches so that people live according to the Bible. Effective Bible Teachers create doers of the Word and not hearers only. Effective Bible Teachers make disciples. Effective Bible Teachers result in classes...

What is the difference between joy and happiness?

My first pastor often cited Oswald Chambers’s My Utmost for His Highest, and I eagerly read that great book as a young Christian. But at the time I didn’t know enough to disagree with his statement: “Joy should not be confused with happiness. In fact, it is an insult to Jesus Christ to use the word happiness in connection with...


LEADERS SOMETIMES MAKE audacious statements and then lead people to fulfill them. Leaders turn their convictions about what must happen and their vision about what can happen into what does happen. When they do, the world is changed, often dramatically, with results echoing to subsequent generations. In the 1960s two American...

The relevance and importance of studying the second coming

The Old and New Testaments are filled with the promises of the second coming of Christ. In the Old Testament, there are 1,845 references and a total of seventeen Old Testament books that give it prominence. Of the 216 chapters in the entire New Testament, there are 318 references to the Second Coming, or one out of every thirty...
