Overview

This collection helps your entire church dig deeper into the lives of the founders of our faith. It has everything you need for your personal study, but it’s best used in conjunction with the complete church curriculum.

It's the Best Curriculum for Churches and Great for Individual Study

Discover new meaning in the lives of the patriarchs. Dig up the nuggets you might have missed. Answer questions you’ve never thought to ask. Learn new ways to apply the patriarchs’ stories in your life.

Get connected with others in your church. This collection is perfect for small groups, and it’s best used in conjunction with the complete curriculum package for your entire church. The topics in each small group Bible study integrate with your pastor’s sermons. Everything is centered on the Word, so you get a complete, shared Bible study experience with your entire church.

The entire program is designed for Logos Bible Software and Logos’ Faithlife Study Bible app. It combines text and visuals with today’s most advanced Bible study tools. All Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation and to the original language texts in your library.

Or, study and apply the Bible on your own. This in-depth collection will help you understand the lives of the patriarchs and apply biblical lessons to your life, even if you’re studying on your own. Imagine character studies of the patriarchs enhanced with infographics, maps, and artifact images. And then add to that picture Bible study tips and bits of information about the ancient world. On top of that, add reflection questions with writable answer boxes. That’s what this collection offers you.

This three-volume collection features infographics, maps, artifact images, thought-provoking questions, “writable” answer boxes, Bible study tips, an annotated reading list, and printable handouts. The complete church curriculum for leaders and pastors, available here, includes everything in the individual/group member version plus videos, small-group lesson plans, sermon outlines, and teaching slideshows.

Praise for the Series

Logos has taken group Bible study to the next level with their new Studies in Faithful Living series. Deeply engaging, biblically accurate, and filled with life-changing applications, this series is destined to be the go-to resource for lay leaders for years to come.
