Sharing Faith Stories is part of the Upside-Down Living Bible study series from Herald Press. Each compelling six-session study helps us encounter the teachings of Jesus and wrestle with living out the kingdom here and now.
The Bible isn’t a cookbook with solutions for every ethical dilemma, but it helps us raise the right questions, encounter the teachings of Jesus, and discover new ways of faithful living in the world. Ideal for personal use, Sunday school, or Bible study sessions, each topical study covers a specific theme or issue, and comes with thought-provoking discussion questions and activities. Be inspired and transformed in your faith. Live upside down.
Topics in this series: Sabbath, Technology, Money, Identity and Aging, Violence, and Sharing Faith Stories. For more information, see Upside-Down Living.
