As companions to our IVP Signature Collection, the IVP Signature Bible Studies feature new and classic study guides that help individuals and groups explore and apply biblical truths.
Assembled from commentaries written by the late John Stott, this topical and book-based Bible study set is for individuals and groups that want what Stott wanted—to bring their lives under the authority of the Bible. Each study guide includes Stott's informative exposition of key biblical passages with inductive study questions.
For over three decades LifeGuide® Bible Studies have been the leaders in Bible study. These inductive guides provide solid biblical content and raise thought-provoking question for individuals and groups.

With the LifeGuide® in Depth Series, your group gets the direct encounter with Scripture you've come to expect from a LifeGuide, only now with a new supply of resources for discovery and growth.

With a scholar's mind and a pastor's heart, Tom Wright walks you through the New Testament in these guides designed especially with everyday readers in mind. Perfect for group use or daily personal reflection, these studies use the popular inductive method combined with Wright's thoughtful insights to bring contemporary application of Scripture to life.
Together, Old Testament Essentials and New Testament Essentials offer a comprehensive overview of the Bible that will enrich your knowledge and deepen your faith. These two selected studies from the Essentials series are designed to work well on your own, with a partner, or in a small group, following the format of the rest of the series.
The books in this series offer the essential message of one of the world's most beloved Bible teachers. John Stott's teaching, largely drawn from his Bible Speaks Today volumes, are presented here in a format suitable for daily reading. Questions at the end of each section make these books even more useful for individuals or groups.
The Retelling the Story series explores the narrative arc of the Bible from Genesis through Revelation in compelling language that is faithful to the text of Scripture. Russ Ramsey's dynamic narratives trace Jesus' birth and life, as well as the early disciples' missionary call in the book of Acts. Written in the form of daily devotional readings, the stories are told afresh to help readers hide God's word in their hearts by way of their imaginations.
In the Biblical Imagination Series, writer and musician Michael Card invites readers to enter into Scripture at the level of the informed imagination. With a book for each Gospel account, this set will help you discover the biblical text for yourself, recapturing your imagination with the beauty and power of Christ.
This set includes all available titles by pastors Greg Ogden and Daniel Meyer—workbooks that lead you through the essentials for Christian ministry: discipleship, evangelism, following Jesus' Great Commandment, and leadership.
James Bryan Smith believes the gospel can transform your life, not just alter your eternal destiny. Work through The Good and Beautiful Series individually or in a group and learn who God is, what it means to be a Christian and what it means to live in community as a part of God's kingdom.
