Series Spotlight: Coffee Cup Bible Studies

6 Mar

Are you looking for a great Bible study for yourself or a group of co-workers or friends?  Then check out Sandra Glahn’s Coffee Cup Bible Study series.  Each study is 5-6 weeks long and focuses on a book of the Bible or a passage of Scripture.  I have led several groups using these studies with great results.  The format is great — spiral bound books with the entire Scripture included — easy for toting to work or appointments or school pick up lines.  The back ground information is well-researched and the questions really help the reader to dive into the verses studied.

There are eight studies to choose from:  Frappe with Philippians, Solomon Latte, Espresso with Esther, Kona with Jonah, Java with Judges, Cappuccino with Colossians, Premium Roast with Ruth, and Mocha on The Mount — a little something for everyone.  An upcoming study is titled Sumatra with The Seven Churches.

My favorite study so far is Mocha on The Mount.  My group really enjoyed it, and better still they stuck with it!

Imagine yourself having coffee with Jesus. What would you ask Him? What might He ask you? In this study we’ll consider His words in the Sermon on the Mount and explore how our righteousness can actually “exceed that of the scribes and the Pharisees.”  Yarright.  Actually, we’ll explore how Jesus set the bar so high that to enter the kingdom of heaven we realize our deep need for grace and for someone else to bear the penalty of our sin. That’s the only way we get that kind of righteousness—His righteousness credited to our account.

This and all the Coffee Cup Bible Series books contain weekday Bible study questions and weekend devotional thoughts for lighter reading. Designed for group or individual study.

So choose a study, call up the girls and dive in!
