Bible studies for those behind bars to use as self-study, with a pen pal, or in a small group.

If you are using them with a small group this is the suggested methodology for each word study:

1. Fellowship (Save most of this for the end of class.)
2. Take prayer requests (Try to keep it from becoming a competition to see who has the most or the worst.)
3. Pray (The idea here is to leave our troubles with God so we can give His word our attention with a clear mind.)
4. Read the lesson's scriptures aloud from the Bible and the associated philosophical discussion.
5. Answer and briefly discuss the "fill in the blank" questions. Let those who prefer to listen, listen. My answers on the next page are just one opinion; you may have a better answer.
6. On the "Think & Pray" questions everyone should take a few minutes to pray over it and jot down their own thoughts before the discussion. This will give the Holy Spirit a time to speak.
7. Discuss your Think & Pray answers. Never force anyone to share theirs. As with the other questions, my answer is just one more opinion; you may have a better answer.
8. Study as much of the "for further thought" material as time allows
9. Close in prayer (It is best to call on others to pray, but try to get their permission ahead of time.)
10. Fellowship (Leave this as open ended as possible for the time and place you meet.)

Depending on the number of people, each word study is expected to take about an hour. Steps 4 thru 8 are about half of that. If it looks like you are going to take longer, you might want to stop discussion on the "fill in the blank" questions, and let the Bible speak for itself. Save the discussion for the "Think & Pray" questions so the Holy Spirit, the real Teacher, gets the most chance to speak. If you take less time, extra questions are provided for discussion called "For Further Thought"
