Mid-week prayer meetings, be they on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, are known for the faithful few who come to study with the pastor, despite weather conditions and schedule pressures. More and more often these days, prayer meetings tend to focus on intensive Bible studies. Regular attendees thrive on this special time when they can, with pastoral guidance, learn from God’s Word.

Preparing for these Bible Studies need not be time-consuming when you have the John Stott Bible Studies. John Stott is one of the world’s leading and most loved Bible teachers and preachers. In this guide you can explore Scripture side by side with Stott, enhancing your own in-depth study with insights gained from his years of immersion in God’s Word.

This particular series is based on entire New Testament books or portions, and is specifically designed for individual or small group study. For example Ephesians is divided into 12 studies, and deals with the subject of unity. The Ephesians John Stott Studies helps us learn how to break down whatever it is that separates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, and employer from employee.

Acts: Seeing the Spirit at Work--18 studies
