We’re proud to announce….

March 10th, 2011 by Beth A. Lewis

We're proud to announce The Greatest Story: Bible  Introduction (TGS) just published in a new multi-denominational edition!

This was developed with our full communion partner congregations in mind, making this easy-to-use, 16-session Bible overview available not only to Lutherans but for those in our ecumenical partners, as well!

This new version of TGS is designed for congregations that do not use Lutheran Study Bible as their primary Bible – so it works regardless of what version of the Bible their group might use.  To address the need for the maps, charts, illustrations, and diagrams from Lutheran Study Bible, there is an additional Leader Reference CD-ROM with those materials in PDF format for use in printed handouts or projection.

  • Additionally, to ensure quality and theological appropriateness for use in full communion partner congregations, this version of TGS has been reviewed and edited by expert practitioners from The Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church USA, and The United Methodist Church.
  • It features the same excellent sand art videos by Joe Castillo for use in each session as the original version.
  • We have a GREAT deal on the leader bundle.  This will be the most economical way for Bible study or adult Sunday School leaders to get everything you need to explore the curriculum.

If you haven't seen this resource, it is worth taking a few minutes to view the sample sand art video on YouTube and share it with adults in your congregation.  Then, sit back and watch as they are mesmerized and see the Biblical narrative in a whole new and engaging way!  Enjoy!
