But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1 Timothy 1:5 (NET)

"THE BIG PICTURE" IS ESSENTIAL FOR NEW FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST

The Big Picture coverWe live in a society which has become largely ignorant of the basic history and key historical records of the Bible. Even well-educated men and women often can't distinguish Abraham from Aaron, Moses from Noah, Matthew from John, or the Old Testament from the New. But when a person puts their trust in Christ as Savior and Lord, the Bible becomes the most important guidebook for their lives.

The URBACAD program provides a wonderful textbook to bring new believers an understanding of the importance of the Bible, and an initial working knowledge of the contents of the Bible, and the flow of God's plan for human history. It's called The Big Picture (in Spanish, Panorama de la Biblia). For those churches which use Abundant Life as a guide for one-on-one or small group discipleship, The Big Picture is a great next step.

The Big Picture uses the same programmed instructional format as other SEAN materials, in ten units of study which can be paced one per week, or in "lessons" which would extend the study period to about 20 weeks. I recommend The Big Picture be used in a small group, less than eight students, to allow time for questions and interaction. We have developed a list of suggested Bible memory verses to reinforce the theme of each unit, available on request.

The workbooks are available for $12 plus P&H; a leader's guide for $10. Please contact me with questions, comments and orders. (Michael)
