Participant Guides (Creating, Living, Trusting)
This single volume Participant Guide contains the materials required for all three Covenant modules: Creating, Living and Trusting. Each Covenant Bible Study participant needs a Participant Guide and a Bible. The CEB Study Bible is preferred, but not required. The Participant Guide walks study participants through the daily scripture readings and offers space to interact personally with the readings, the group experience, and the weekly meditations.
- Creating: God establishes the covenant to be in relationship with us. The first module, Creating the Covenant, examines how the covenant community is created and established, by focusing on several books of the Bible.
- Living: Living within the covenant translates into action—into how we behave in our everyday lives. That’s why the second module, Living the Covenant, focuses on how the community lives out the covenant in faithful love—how it is applied to actual relationships in daily life.
- Trusting: Life often presents significant challenges. Difficulties are inevitable. That’s why the final module, Trusting the Covenant, looks at the crises that sometimes call covenant life into question, and how we are restored to trust in God when troubling things happen. It’s how hope is restored by faithfulness in the midst of suffering.
