Revive to Survive

Future Severe Challenges

One of my main concerns is that most Christian churches don’t have very much Bible teaching. Even
careful Bible teaching sermons are not enough. Many do remember very little from sermons or lectures
they are just one way. Here in Germany most churched don’t even have adult Bible study classes. People
learn more when they are involved in the learning process, either by doing homework, projects, and
reports. For many years I have tried to encourage many to study the Bible more and even begin home
group Bible studies. I handed out and e-mailed many Bible study tools. I am concerned about many not
knowing enough of God’s Word (especially His promises and expectations) because the Age of Grace
could soon end. Jesus Christ is coming back for a purified bride and most of the cleansing or
improvement sanctification should be done before.

Recently, I have had opportunities to share about my logical indent method of formatting Scripture with
some leaders in a world-wide denomination and they thought it was good and could help the indicated
needed Bible study revival. So, I have done some compiling of thought-provoking Bible studies for
publication.

Why are the just mentioned unique from other Bible study publications?
1.) No “preaching” and no commentary.
2.) Much of the time, the Scripture is logically phrased and logically indented in order to cause the
reader to reason why such is done. Sometimes I have also bolded and underlined for teaching
emphasis.
3.) Scripture is put in logical groups which again influences reasoning.
4.) Thought-provoking questions and essay assignments.
5.) No controversial Scripture is used. The purpose for each course is to encourage repentance to
righteousness because of increased love for God the Father and Jesus Christ.

For what can they be used?


1.) Individual personal study
2.) Bible discussion groups studying
3.) Sermon helps for non-pastors in churches which share their pastor with two or three other churches.
My Bible studies can give some logical order of messages given during each Sabbath or Sunday
worship service. The next speaker would just begin where the last speaker left off. Expounding on
the indicated Scripture would be the emphasis to encourage good Bible teaching instead of a
different subject (spiritual or secular or psychological) every week. This also would allow others to
not totally miss out when they miss a service because they can get the copy of the Scripture that was
covered in the missed meeting.

How what can they be used?


The Bible studies are grouped in common subject areas, but they can be used in any order an individual, a
Bible study group, or a church wants. A check-off list could be made and after a Bible study is
completed, it is dated. An individual can actually do the courses in MS Word after downloading them.
So then they can insert answers to the questions and also insert notes and lessons learned in appropriate
places, thus making the experience of Scripture reading very personal.

Following is the list of Bible studies compiled so far. You can request any of them by contacting me via
