“A Guide for Biblical Studies,” the Brethren Press curriculum for adults, this spring will have a focus on the Holy Spirit. The theme for the quarter--March, April, and May 2015--is “The Spirit Comes.”

Frank Ramirez is the author of the study and writer of the lessons, study questions, and “out of context” feature. He is pastor of Union Center Church of the Brethren in Nappanee, Ind.

Lessons explore scripture texts from John, Mark, Acts, 1 Corinthians, 1 John, and 3 John, with themes such as “Jesus Promises an Advocate,” “The Spirit of Truth,” “Receive the Holy Spirit,” and “Gifts of the Spirit,” among others.

Written from a Church of the Brethren perspective, “A Guide for Biblical Studies” follows the International Sunday School Lessons/Uniform Series and includes daily texts for individual meditation, as well as weekly lessons for small group study, and questions for both individual preparation and classroom use.

Price is $4.50 or $7.50 for large print books, plus shipping and handling. Purchase one copy per student, per quarter. This resource may be purchased online at www.brethrenpress.com or by calling Brethren Press at 800-441-3712.
