Adult Bible Studies
Hundreds of thousands of people each week have transformative encounters with God through Bible-based, Christ-focused Sunday school lessons in Adult Bible Studies. It’s our most popular quarterly series for adults—a comprehensive Bible study plan designed to deepen your relationship with God! The studies follow the seasons of the Church Year, including Advent and Lent. They answer important faith questions and feature suggestions for developing spiritual practices that nurture your faith (prayer, confession, worship, mindfulness, solitude, community, hospitality, neighboring, service, and celebration). Studies are flexible in terms of Scripture selection and topics and include brief introductory articles that explain historical and biblical context as well as additional information designed to help leaders and facilitators lead with confidence. In response to customer feedback, we have reintroduced Focal Bible Passages in both the Student and Teacher books, mostly using the Common English Bible (CEB) version of the text, while sometimes including the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) when it will better help students engage and appreciate the biblical texts. In addition, studies feature a larger, easy-to-read type for ease of reading. Components for each quarterly study include a Teacher Guide, a Student Book, and a DVD with video segments featuring hosts that provide context for the Bible lesson and then tie that content to personal stories and daily living.
Cokesbury offers a full variety of Bibles for study, reference, journaling, adventure bibles for kids, and many additional formats. You will also find a variety of translations such as NRSV, NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV, NLT, and featuring the Common English Bible (CEB).
Cokesbury carries a selection of Bible studies for your small groups. Discover topical studies and textual studies for women, men, leaders, or youth. No matter the size, age, or configuration, you can discover a study that will teach, inspire, and encourage you on your faith journey.
