Ruth by Kelly Minter

Discover a journey of unbearable loss, redeeming love, and divine legacy. This study delves into the virtuous character of Ruth, her unique relationship with her mother-in-law Naomi, and her blossoming love with Boaz.

Amos by Jennifer Rothschild

Amos is often called a prophet of doom. And when you begin to read his prophecy, it doesn’t take long to realize that nickname fits. On the surface, his prophecy doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a cry for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4).

Isaiah by Melissa Spoelstra

Following God isn’t about striving; it’s about trusting. As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote, you will learn to rest in God’s promises and trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests.

The Gospel on the Ground by Kristi McLelland
