We believe the Bible to be God’s self-revelation, the Word that shows God's glory, grace, and love. Therefore, we write our curriculum to magnify His majesty, His works, and His nature.
For each passage of Scripture, we look for the ways that God reveals Himself, and then we study how His message shines through context, culture, language, and application. We challenge students first to stand in awe of God, to know and love Him, for that is the first step of any true change in character.

Lectures and textbooks only go so far. If we want students to feel at home in the Word—to build a relationship with its Author—we must encourage them to dive deep and seek God on their own. When students open one of our books, they should find an engaging companion to their Bible, with exercises that reinforce the discipline to explore, understand, and live the gospel of Christ, by the Spirit’s grace.
We exist to help you, the teacher, magnify God to your students. We believe that God grows His children through face-to-face contact with people like you—believers who reflect both love and truth.
This ministry has thrived for over 40 years because we’ve kept our material accountable to God and to you. With your continued feedback and help, we trust that God will use us all to introduce His grace to many more students in the years to come.
