    Bible Study Resource

    Fellow youth ministry blogger Grahame Knox has produced an excellent free resource entitled, "Creative Bible Study Methods for Youth Leaders."
    Rather than a series of bite-sized Bible studies with predetermined interpretations, Grahame offers up a host of creative ways to help youth engage, wrestle with, and inhabit biblical texts. Grahame writes:
    What do you think of when you hear the words 'group Bible study?' Perhaps we should start with what it's not! A Bible study is not a lecture or a sermon. It's not a conversation between you and the most 'spiritual' member of your group, or an argument, or an interrogation. A group Bible study should involve every member of your group and our role should be that of a catalyst for discussion.
    Definitely useful for youth ministers and youth volunteers alike, the only question about it that I have is "Why is he giving it away for free?" Just a nice guy, I guess! You can download the resource here.
