Bible Study for Young Adults

| January 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

Every Friday night I (Ryan King) will be leading a Bible Study for young adults aged 18-29 at Grace Baptist Church (Wood Green). We will be making use of an introductory systematic theology by Bruce Milne entitled Know the Truth: A Handbook of Christian Belief. The back of the second edition of the book sums things up better than I could. It says: 

Christians have already begun to know God and his truth. This handbook will help us grow in that liberating knowledge, as it opens up the great themes of God’s Word and shows us how they fit together.
 
Each chapter looks at one facet of biblical truth and encourages further study with Scripture references to look up, questions for discussion and books for additional reading. The main sections all close with practical reflection on how the Bible’s teaching challenges us and moves us to adore the living God.
  
As well as offering updated bibliographies, this new edition responds to recent developements in secular and Christian thinking. It ensures that “Know the Truth” will remain an excellent introduction to doctrine.
Although he now travels to different places around the world, Dr. Bruce Milne was at one time a lecturer at Spurgeon’s College, London and was later the pastor of First Baptist Church, Vancouver, Canada. He is also the author of another book I would highly recommend, Dynamic Diversity: Bridging Class, Age, Race, and Gender in the Church.

As helpful as Milne’s book will be to our study, we should bring all things under the scrutiny of God’s word, the Bible, and it will take center stage in our studies and discussions. It alone is inspired by God, inerrant and infallible. Remember that:
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16).

If you are aged 18-29, in or around London, and want to know what Christians believe, you are most welcome to attend. We will begin at 8:30 and go to 10:30, Friday evenings, and will meet at Grace Baptist Church (Wood Green), 48-50 Park Ridings, London, N8 0LD. Hope to see you there!
