1 and 2 Kings: Kings and Their Prophets

Written by the father-son team of Robert Bowman and Christopher Bowman, this study of 1 and 2 Kings reflects on the balance between king and prophet in the history of Israel. The study asserts that both are needed: without prophets, religion tends to be self-serving; without administrators, organizers, and kings the faithful may drift, dream, and do nothing. This study provides a closer look at some of these kings and their prophets, and the background on why these Bible stories were written.

1 and 2 Peter and Jude: Letters of Encouragement

Written by Galen Hackman, this study of the New Testament books of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude reveals letters written to Christians facing despair as a result of hardship and persecution in their communities. These letters encourage downtrodden Christians to hold true to the sound teachings they’ve been given, and to stand firm. This Covenant Bible Study will reward study groups with deeper understandings of faith in Christ, encouraging perseverance in obedience and faithfulness.
