Philippians 4:11-12

"If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content."

    I am so glad I found out how to begin to follow Dr. Stanley on his studies. I was inspired by him in 1997 to write my lessons to teach my Bible Study class on Brokenness. It has really enhanced my study and my class. I have writtena few manuals to teach from and give them a copy for study.
    May god bless you and keep teaching what was established from the beginning. there's no need to change the method, it worked then and is working now, when we use it correctly.

    Thanks very much for the work put into this. I find reading the Bible interesting. As Muslims, God asks us in the Holy Quran to believe in that which was revealed to earlier prophets.

    God has laid out for his children how to live in a righteous and holy manner. By setting aside our fleshly pursuits and following his
    Guidelines, he will bless us without limit.
