We are thinking of adding two more courses to this series:

"Daily Christianity" - about 7 things a Christian should do every day - worship, pray, Bible reading, fellowship, service, express gratitude, and abide in Christ.

AND

"How to Read the Bible" - How do you maintain your interest in Bible reading in the face of long temple construction instructions, legal minutiae, one bad king after another, Job's friends, incomprehensible prophecy, and the Apostle Paul's 100 word sentences?

Besides these two we have no more courses planned for this series, for adults who are new to Christianity, but would be glad to consider any suggestions you might have. We do have some more lessons on general Bible Topics. Click Here to see the list.
