Praise for the Print Edition

. . .[the Explorer's Bible Study series has] very much enhanced our understanding of God’s Word and of His purpose for each of us. In all the years I have taught, I have never used material that so motivated each student to study on a daily basis and as a result develop a habit of daily study. I am very grateful to you for making this superior material available.

—Hugh C. Thomson, Sr., Media, PA (small group teacher)

. . .the Explorer’s study opened my eyes and heart to the Bible as if I were reading it for the first time; it brought to me a new understanding of God’s Word with life changing results. . .I’ve heard of no better study for learning the truth and glory of God’s Word or deepening one’s relationship with God. (I cannot say enough good things about it!)

—Bobbie Kicklighter (Explorer’s class member)

Individual Titles

Genesis

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2000

The study of this important first book of the Bible is essential to understanding the remainder of Scripture.  We have dedicated an entire course to the study of this wonderful book of “firsts.”  Recorded are the beginning of life, sin, apostasy, judgment, atonement, worship, prophecy, and salvation. Genesis forms the first chapter in the history of redemption which is the substance of the whole Bible.  It points forward from a paradise lost to a paradise regained in the Book of Revelation. (29 Lessons)

Early History of Israel: Exodus through Joshua

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1988

In Exodus we see Israel's deliverance from Egypt and journey toward the promised land.  In Leviticus we see the laws of worship and priesthood given.  The way of approach to God and the way of abiding with God are also seen.  The books of Numbers and Deuteronomy review the history and wanderings of Israel prior to entering the promised land.  Finally, in Joshua, we witness the conquest of Canaan as Israel begins to claim the inheritance promised to Abraham. (30 Lessons)

Judges and Kings of Israel

  • Author: Marni Shideler McKenzie
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2003

This course surveys the books of Judges through Second Chronicles. The development of Israel from a loose confederation of twelve tribes into a recognized kingdom of God 's people will be traced. One repeated truth that will act as a refrain of hope in this very sobering study is the power for change when even one person repents and seeks the Lord. Eternal changes can occur in individuals, families, and even in nations as a whole. (30 Lessons)

Prophets of Israel

  • Author: Marni Shideler McKenzie
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2005

This study is intended to follow Judges and Kings of Israel, the Explorer's Bible Study course which surveyed Judges through Second Chronicles. This present course focuses on the teachings of the Old Testament prophets as they relate to the last years of the Divided Kingdom, God's eternal promises to the Jews, and the coming of His Messiah. With the exception of Isaiah and Jeremiah, who have entire Explorer's courses devoted to them, all the other Old Testament prophets will be studied in chronological order. We will hear them sound God's warnings and issue His instructions before and after the fall of Israel at the hands of Assyria and during the exile and return of Judah from her captivity in Babylon. (30 Lessons)

Job, Psalms, & Proverbs

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1990

These three poetical books deal with practical questions on right living.  The book of Job gives insight into suffering; Psalms gives insight into true prayer; and Proverbs teaches the art of right conduct in every circumstance.   In each of these books we find a deeper understanding and love for the God Who created us, sustains us, loves us, forgives us, and ultimately, gives our lives meaning. (30 Lessons)

Psalms of Prayer and Praise

  • Author: Deborah Burrus
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2001

The book of Psalms is the songbook of ancient Israel. No other book of hymns has been used by so many for so long. The content of the psalms ranges from adoration and praise of God to desperate pleading in times of distress. Every human emotion can be found. Emotions are deeply felt, including the pain of sin and separation from God, relief in forgiven sin, distress in trial and humiliation, and confidence in Almighty Ever-Present God. As you study this course, you will be challenged to enter into a more intimate love relationship with God. (30 Lessons)

Isaiah

  • Author: Marni Shideler McKenzie
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1978

This course is an exciting study of one of the greatest prophets of Israel.  For sixty years Isaiah served as a prophet, writer, and statesman during a most critical and eventful period of his nation's history.  Out of his devoted loyalty to the God who loved Israel, his unswerving faith, and patriotism came the greatest moral revolution and the reign of the great king Hezekiah. (30 Lessons)

Jeremiah

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1995

This study looks at a man who did not have the satisfaction of seeing reform come from his constant warnings to a people who were corrupt, idolatrous, and obstinate.  His job was to warn of the coming judgment of God through foreign armies, famine, pestilence, drought, defeat, captivity, despair, and destruction.  He delivered his message with a gentle and sympathetic heart even though it was in opposition to what people wanted to hear.  In this he stood alone. The study of Jeremiah reveals many parallels to our nation and world today. (30 Lessons)

Gospel of Matthew

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2000

This gospel provides the bridge from the Old Testament to the New through the genealogy of Jesus.  The life of Christ is given in such a manner as to form part of the history and life of the Jewish nation and therefore as the fulfillment of the blessing promised to Abraham.  Jesus is portrayed as the newborn King of the Jews, as the promised Messiah, and the fulfillment of prophecy.  In this study we come in contact with the Living Person, Jesus Christ. We can see Jesus as He was: fully human and yet the King of Kings. (30 Lessons)

Gospel of John

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1988

“In the beginning was the Word.” These opening words from the Gospel of John draws a portrait of Jesus as the Divine Logos, the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus has a dual role as Revealer and Redeemer. He came to reveal the Father and to take away “the sin of the world.” As the Logos, Jesus continued God's creative and redemptive work, turning water to wine and giving sight to a blind man.  As the Revealer, Jesus revealed that He and the Father were one, so those who saw Him, saw the Father. All that Jesus does and says points beyond and above to the knowledge of God, through Jesus' revelation of the Father, which reaches its fulfillment in His death on the cross and His triumphant resurrection from the grave. (30 Lessons)

Luke and Acts

  • Author: Marni Shideler McKenzie
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1978

In these two wonderful New Testament books we study the life of Christ and the life of the early church. The Gospel of Luke presents the good tidings of the gospel of Jesus Christ for every age, nation, profession, and people. Luke is the most complete historical record of the life of Christ. The Book of Acts is the continuation of the risen Lord's work glorified through the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of his followers. It is Christ acting from heaven guiding, directing, comforting, and encouraging His servants. (30 Lessons)

New Testament Epistles: Romans through Revelation

  • Author: T. M. Constance
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 1988

This course is not meant to be an exhaustive study of the New Testament, but rather is meant to be a study that will deepen our desire to dig further into the precious truths of the Word of God.  It covers the Pauline epistles, Hebrews, the general epistles, and the Book of Revelation.  The epistles are written for the instruction of every Christian.  In them we have a complete course in Christian conduct for the Church as well as for the individual. (32 Lessons)

Romans, Galatians, & James

  • Author: Marni Shideler McKenzie
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2004

The Apostle Paul, who was called, committed, and courageous, was the author of two of the three epistles that are covered in this study.  Romans, the first epistle in the New Testament, is considered by many to be the foundational document of Biblical doctrine.  The essential truth of justification through faith alone is central to this book.  The book of Galatians builds on this foundation and continues to demonstrate the inability of the law to justify.  James, the final book in this study, emphasizes godly behavior – the working out of our faith. (30 Lessons)

God's Perfect Plan: Exploring Bible Prophecy from Genesis to Revelation

  • Author: Marni Shideler McKenzie
  • Publisher: Explorer’s Bible Study
  • Publication Date: 2000

Interpretation of Biblical prophecy has been the source of confusion, controversy, and misunderstanding throughout the ages in Christendom.  This course seeks to bring together and open a broad spectrum of Scriptures dealing with prophecy, hopefully leading to a fuller understanding of their meaning and importance.  The study begins with a look at Old Testament prophecies and their fulfillment in the life of the nation of Israel.  Several lessons focus on the many prophecies concerning the coming Messiah and their fulfillment in Jesus Christ. The later portion of the study looks at prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled - those that many consider to be future or “end time.” (30 Lessons)
