Characters Volume 2: The Deliverers - Bible Study Book
The Deliverers Bible Study Book includes printed content for six sessions, personal study between group sessions, applicable Scripture, "How to Use This Study," a leader guide, and tips for leading a group. Every person in the Bible is a supporting actor in God's story—each revealing who God is and what His will is for human beings both then and now. In these characters, we see a glimpse of ourselves, coming to understand our failings, our potential, and God's purpose through it all. This second volume of the Characters series traces the formation of the nation of Israel as they are delivered from Egypt, take possession of the promised land, and time and time again need to be rescued through God's intervention. In The Deliverers, you'll encounter characters like Moses, Joshua, and Samson, reexamining these familiar stories in their historical and biblical context to see both the victories and failures of those whom God used for His purposes.
