Here's How It Can Work For You
You can use a free small group Bible study here by printing them
out from the web page. We offer to email questions to you every day for
some of our lessons here. Then you can compare your answers with the
answers provided through a link included with the last daily email or
from the web page itself.
Our study methodology involves a discussion of a passage of scripture that was previously studied individually or with a partner. Bible passages and their corresponding study guides are provided for weekly study.
This study format is designed to challenge the student to study the Bible on a daily basis, discuss and share insights with others, and learn biblical truths that can be applied in daily life. Discussion leaders and students should read the assigned passage, answer the corresponding questions, and be prepared to discuss their answers to the questions at the group’s next weekly meeting.
At the next weekly meeting discussion leaders facilitate the group in answering the questions. The general rule is this: if you do not have the answer to the question prepared (written down), group members pass and tell the discussion leader “I did not answer that one” or "I'm going to pass on that one" etc. so the discussion can move forward.
The idea for small group study is to share insights, explore the Bible together, and benefit from group discussion of biblical principles. The ideal small group format provides for a daily individual or partner study which is complemented by the weekly discussion group. Daily studies of the materials on this website can take as little as 15 minutes but is typically 30 minutes. The weekly discussions can easily last an hour, and may easily take 90 minutes or longer with groups that are comfortable or familiar with one another.
Discussion leaders do not have all the answers and should not be expected to have them – they should be expected to

Tools to Help You Study the Bible
It helps if you have a study library or at least a study Bible. We have reviewed several study Bibles and offer our opinion on them at this page. We also would like to recommend that you consider downloading a free electronic software library (opens new window) of Bibles and Bible reference tools if you have a computer. Having participants armed with these tools enhances your free small group Bible study. If you are thinking of leading a free small group Bible study, I believe a software library is essential.
