As you explore this fascinating Old Testament book in this twelve-session LifeGuide® Bible Study by Bill and Teresa Syrios, you will discover how God brings meaning to the world and how following God brings meaning to your life.

For over three decades LifeGuide Bible Studies have provided solid biblical content and raised thought-provoking questions—making for a one-of-a-kind Bible study experience for individuals and groups.
