We at GCN encourage you to spend time each day in the Bible. God has much to teach you, and every part of Scripture has its own lesson. The better acquainted you are with the Bible, the better you'll understand your own faith, so make a commitment to spend time in the Word each day, praying for guidance and wisdom as you read.
What follows is a 33-week series of Bible studies we held in 2003. These studies deal with common issues faced by all Christians. If you're looking for a study of the passages most commonly used to condemn homosexuality, visit our Great Debate section.
