Into the Word

Into the Word.

Getting to grips with the narrative, themes and literature of the whole Bible.

This ten-session course is intended to help you to have a much stronger grasp of what the Bible is all about by linking together the whole story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Every main section of the Bible will be studied and every type of literature considered. Through this we will then discuss the main theological themes of the Bible and get to understand the big story of God’s redemption in its widest context.

Martin Charlesworth presents the teaching by video. After each session, time is specifically allocated to discussion and feedback led by a local Facilitator. In this way we will provide significant learning opportunities and focus on important or challenging issues which we all face in understanding the Bible.

This course is both for leaders and also for all who want a chance to get deeper into God’s word to make us more effective in our Christian lives.

Martin CharlesworthI am very excited about the development of ‘Into the Word’! Having been a church leader for many years, and as current ChristCentral Training Director, I have come to the conclusion that one of the greatest needs of Christians is to gain confidence in using the Bible. Gaining this confidence enables us as Christians to use it effectively in our personal lives, our witness to others, and our church ministries. It's open to all and I promise you an exciting ride!

Martin Charlesworth, Training Director, ChristCentral

We'll be looking at key skills for getting the most out of the Bible; essentially, we will identify how the Bible fits together and how we understand the use of different books. Therefore, 'Into the Word' is designed to help you on the journey of being fully equipped in using the Bible. It will be hands-on learning: with presentations, discussions and application.

Churches Version

Into the Word is a video course developed with the specific vision “To enable all Christians to use all the Bible in all of life”. It is not a leadership course – it is aimed at all church members who wish to develop their ability to use the Bible as a resource to live effective Christian lives.

The resources are now available for churches to purchase the course for a one-off price of £250. All video sessions are taught by Martin Charlesworth, and a Facilitator’s Handbook is provided in the purchase price.
