For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps people understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily. The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. And the Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. Using this DVD driven curriculum and study guide, we will break down the seventh thru twelfth sessions on how the story of Scripture intersects with the story of your life and allows you to open your eyes to God’s master-plan as it unfolds in the lives of the Bible’s characters. Discover the heart of God’s Upper Story and the joy that comes as you align your story with God’s. In this 6-week session, we will uncover:
Session 25 – Jesus, Son of God
Session 26 – The Hour of Darkness
Session 27 – The Resurrection
Session 28 – New Beginnings
Session 29 – Paul’s Mission

GENERATION Z UNFILTERED
This generation of students who have grown up in the 21st century are the most social, the most empowered, and also the most anxious youth population in human history. If you are struggling to connect with and lead them, you are not alone. The latest research presented in this book, however, illuminates a surprising reality: The success of the next generation doesn’t depend entirely on them. Their best chance of success starts when adults choose to believe in them, challenge them, and walk with them through the nine greatest challenges today’s youth will face. Over the next 6 weeks, Steve Williams will walk through this book with you for their sake, and for the future success of our world. It’s time we started seeing Generation Z—unfiltered.
