Books of the Bible
One of my MOST frequently asked questions is what the best small group bible studies are or whether or not I recommend any. And after getting this question time and time again, I decided it was time I dedicate an entire resource page on my blog to answering this question.
I intend to keep this updated as I learn more and discover additional studies. I love that.
I also got emails I read through every single one of them, making a list of every single study mentioned. Our duties as Christians include biblical discernment—which can only be done by examining what a person says and comparing it with Scripture.
Anyone who sets out to teach the Bible should commit to being as faithful to Scripture as possible.

Otherwise, people will be seriously misled. After all, it should be a BIBLE study guide rather than a compilation of personal stories and opinions. So each of these on this list is chock-full of Scripture too and encourages you to read through different parts of the Bible as you go through it.
Before going into the list, I want to note that among the comments , there were several Bible study authors who came up continually — authors with multiple studies.
Please know that this list only covers what I had time to decipher for myself and feel is best for the BTD community. I know I am not the end-all-be-all of small group studies, I just wanted to provide a resource for the BTD community. I get this question all the time, so I wanted to compile a list to send people to for reference purposes. I still have lots more to read and learn myself!

I can seriously keep going—the list is endless! It creates a darkness in our lives that prevent us from seeing things for what they really are. I cannot recommend it enough! But Angie Smith. In her seven-session book, Seamless, she does a fantastic job of unpacking the overarching themes of Scripture in all of their interwoven, oftentimes mind-numbing complexity.

She weaves together the Old and New Testaments until we finally see the big picture, all the while staying gospel-centered—which is so important to me. And for the visual learner, there are maps and timelines—always a fan of those. Seamless will help you make connections you surprisingly never made in Sunday school. I love how Angie breaks down the Bible in such easy-to-consume steps and makes it all seamlessly fit together into one beautiful story.
Could comfort be a modern-day idol for me, the kind Kelly exposes in her book? She says anything our heart prioritizes before God is taking up space that is meant for Him alone. Sure money, power, and fame are the more popular modern-day idols, but what about making an idol out of Pinterest, loved ones, and even doing ministry at church? Check, check, and check.

In addition to instructional videos, homework, and various activities, there are recipes. So I dug a little and found that one of the recipes that Kelly shares is for Cilantro Black Beans and Rice, which sounds amazing right about now.
The purpose behind it is to grow friendship within your small group. Peter, an eyewitness to the life of Jesus and a man of both faith and flaws, gets us looking past our present circumstances to our eternal home in heaven. I love that too!
Small book of the bible
As I read the reviews, intimacy with God was a recurring theme. And lots of reviews are saying the illustrations are pretty gorgeous too, which of course is a major bonus because of that alone appeals to my visual learning self.
The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Seriously, just reading the description of this study made me ooo and ahh—and it got major props from reviewers too. Jennie Allen puts into place a practical plan that helps people find clarity, purpose, and passion in their lives.
And the way she cheers you on and gets you to dream. The first of which is the belt of truth, which is the Word of God. And being one who loves analogies, I was all ears. And that, my friends, is what the Word of God does.
Her videos are riveting—she is THE BEST speaker—and throughout the homework, she spends a lot of time implementing practical prayer strategies in this seven-session study.
Rather it offers a concise plan that brings women into a deeper understanding of Scripture. And based on my reviews, men are way into this study too!
This incredibly practical book will truly change such thinking, as your heart and mind become transformed. Women of the Word will help anyone who reads it to find their way deeper into the Word of God without having to be seminary educated, a genius, or even an especially good student.
Whether you know your Bible from Genesis-to-maps or. And what I read in the reviews is that it will give you a greater appreciation for the Word of God and its authority in our lives, creating a thirst for truth you may not even realize you have.
I like that. A lot.
Oh, and the videos are online—and optional. I know I need that kind of courage. I wrote a little bit about it in this blog post a few years about. But since it was actually really hard to get all my thoughts on paper, my blog post truly only touched the surface of all that rocked my world in that book. It was a hard book to read. His writings are challenging and call to question unpopular topics. The reviews are across the board in love with this study.
