We’re so excited to bring you a new year of live Bible study with all your favorite authors, including Jackie Hill Perry, Priscilla Shirer, Jen Wilkin, Jennifer Rothschild, Kelly Minter, Kristi McLelland, Lisa Harper, Ruth Chou Simons, and so much more.
If you can’t wait until Lifeway Women’s events head to your city, we’ve got plenty of studies for you to dive into before then.
Here are 8 recommendations from our much-anticipated 2022 speakers:
Jude by Jackie Hill Perry | 7 Sessions
While often overlooked, the book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.
In this 7-session study from Jackie Hill Perry, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.
Elijah by Priscilla Shirer | 7 Sessions
Every fervent believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there.
Join Priscilla Shirer for this 7-session study through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.
God of Freedom by Jen Wilkin | 10 Sessions
Coming January 2022!
Every book of the Bible tells us what is true about God. In Exodus we see Him as our strong Deliverer who sets us free from sin and death to worship Him through obedience.
Through this 10-session study of Exodus 19–40, Jen Wilkin revisits the familiar scenes of the giving of the Ten Commandments, the idolatrous worship of a golden calf, and the intricate details of the tabernacle. With fresh perspective, we learn to trace the promise of Christ throughout and to ask what these stories teach God’s children today about how to live as those set free.
Take Courage by Jennifer Rothschild | 7 Sessions
When the Jewish people returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple, they were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them.
In this 7-session study on the book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime.
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Coming November 2021!
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately.
Join Kelly Minter in this 7-session Bible study as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can actually create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
Jesus and Women by Kristi McLelland | 7 Sessions
Imagine walking the dusty roads of Galilee with Jesus of Nazareth—braving jostling crowds just to touch the edge of His cloak and hear Him say, “Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you.” Those words, once meant to comfort a hurting woman’s soul thousands of years ago, were also meant for you.
Join biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland on those dusty roads as she transports you back to Jesus’ world, stepping into the footsteps of the women who came face to face with the Living God. Over 7 sessions, examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply but to fuel your worship of Him today.
How Much More by Lisa Harper | 7 Sessions
Maybe your head knows that God is always good, but your heart’s not so sure. Or perhaps while reading Scripture, you’ve wondered if our Creator Redeemer went through a personality change—from strictly enforcing the rules in the Old Testament to loving the outcast in the New!
In this 7-session Bible study, you’ll discover divine love in the often overlooked and misunderstood passages. And you’ll be delighted to find that Jehovah of the Old Testament is the same redemptive and compassionate God we see through Jesus Christ in the New Testament. He has always been and will always be for us!
TruthFilled by Ruth Chou Simons | 7 Sessions
Many of us want God’s Word to dwell richly in us, but life can get in the way.
Join Ruth Chou Simons in this 7-session study of the book of Colossians as she leads us through a practice of preaching gospel truth to ourselves by studying Paul’s example. In every changing season of life, we can rest in God’s character, rehearse our identity in Christ, respond in faith, and remember God’s provision for us. In today’s culture, there’s no shortage of self help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.
Who are you excited to see in 2022?
