Where can I get free Bible studies?
Discover Bible guides take you step by step through God’s Word in the privacy of your own home. When you enroll, you’ll receive two lessons through the mail. Each lesson includes a brief introduction and a series of questions with Bible references indicating where you can find the answers. You simply read the introductions, look up the answers in your own Bible, fill in the blanks, and then mail the lessons back to the correspondence school. They'll be corrected and returned to you with the next lessons.
