Deuteronomy is one of my favorite Old Testament books! It’s a great book for all levels of spiritual maturity and insight, while placing God’s character on display in new ways. Hopefully, the Teacher’s Guide will strengthen your trust in God’s Word to provide you with the answers to the questions. As you look at my answers, you’ll see that I find them in God’s Word too!
For the first time ever, I’m making a teacher’s guide available. I’ve generally stayed away from doing them because I didn’t want you to become “dependent” on my answers. I wanted you to dig into God’s Word yourself! But I see the value in checking to see what I put for my own answers to compare with your own. Hopefully, you will find it helpful. My goal is to write the questions so that you’ll find the answers in the text and God’s Word itself will provide the answers, yet I realize there are times, when it’s so helpful to just see what someone else put to make sure you’re on the right track. It’s with that motivation in mind that I offer the teacher’s guide to you. Enjoy!

I’m so excited to post this study on the book of Ephesians! I wrote and taught this study in 2006, but wanted to update the formatting before posting it. I worked on it throughout the summer and had such an enjoyable time revisiting this life-changing book! For the first time ever, I’m also making available a “Teacher’s Guide” for you to use as you lead a study or feel the need to “check your answers.”

I want to begin this introduction to the book of Exodus with a quote from the very last question I wrote for this enriching 12-week inductive study. “Exodus is a book about transitions. It’s a story about leaving an old life and entering into a new one. It’s a relationship tale as the nation of Israel learns how to walk well with their holy, delivering, providing God. And, the book of Exodus is a story in the middle. The Israelites’ story isn’t completed; they haven’t yet arrived in the Promised Land; they haven’t even made it through to the end of the 40 years in the wilderness. It is a story of preparation as God teaches and trains them for the days ahead. That same God is at work in your life—in your transitions, in your relationship with Him, as you navigate an incomplete story trusting the One who leads you. What are some lessons you want to take with you from the book of Exodus that will help you live well in the middle of your story?” ~from Lesson #12

The book of James provides with timeless counsel from God’s Word for issues we deal with today! If you’ve been hungry for a “tell it like it is” book to study, then look no more. James, the half brother of Jesus, teaches very much like his older brother. This book calls us to examine our hearts and lives to see if we are living for the glory of God. You’ll also gain growing skill in observation and checking the context to gain insight into James’ comments. This book is incredibly exciting to study and provides us with rich treasures to glean and apply in our lives.

Picking up where we left off in our study of 1 Corinthians Part 1, Part 2 promises to challenge and enrich our walks with the Lord. We'll be dealing with the "tough" subjects of spiritual gifts, speaking in tongues, women leading in church, the events of the Rapture, and more! If you've stayed away from parts of 1 Corinthians because you thought it might be too complicated to understand, then please won't you join me in studying it? We'll look at God's Word together, step by step, verse by verse, taking into account the context, and you will find those "tough" subjects unfolding before you.

Deuteronomy is the clarion call of God to His children to live obediently before Him. The book reminds us that we must choose to do things God’s way, not our own. Each moment of every day brings us to that crossroads of decision. Am I willing to obey God? Do I yearn to please God by obeying His word? Is my heart wholly devoted to Him?
