Two Bible Studies for Skeptics and Believers Alike:

Acclaimed Author Brings Bible to Life with Art, Humor and Community

By Dan Wooding
Founder of ASSIST Ministries

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH (ANS) -- Margaret Feinberg, popular speaker and author of numerous books including Hungry for God and Scouting the Divine, has just released two new DVD Bible Studies. These Bible studies are particularly notable for the inclusion of artistic themes and an unusually strong emphasis on community-reaching a broad demographic with a personal approach for spiritual growth.

"Studying the Bible is more than something for 'religious' people and is more than something done in isolation," Feinberg says. "Through these studies, we're reminded the Bible was meant to be discussed in community, and its stories are powerful enough to speak to each one of us-wherever we are and whatever our circumstances might be."

According to a news release from Karen Campbell Media (www.karencampbellmedia.com), Pursuing God's Beauty: Stories from the Book of John (Zondervan, 2011), a six-session DVD series, is set in an artist studio and provides a creative and challenging exploration of "beautiful" moments from the life of Jesus. Using art, Feinberg incorporates pieces by Monet, Picasso and other modern artists to illustrate the beautiful truths of John's gospel.

Pursuing God's Love: Stories from the Book of Genesis (Zondervan, 2011) explores what the creation story tells us about God's love. This study is ideal for a diverse group to journey through this fascinating book of the Bible. And, the materials accompanying the six-session DVDs are designed to spark group discussion and exploration of central Biblical themes in a unique way.

In addition to the DVD studies, the participant guides for both Pursuing God's Beauty and Pursuing God's Love include experiential activities for groups to engage with the central themes of the studies. Each guide also includes discussion questions and valuable "After Hours" personal studies.
These materials set Feinberg's studies apart as strong resources for any group, no matter the background or familiarity with scriptures.

Biblical scholars and non-believers alike will be challenged, stretched, inspired and connected walking through these studies together.

Named one of the Thirty Emerging Voices of Christian leaders under age forty by Charisma magazine, Feinberg is a prominent Bible teacher and sought-after expert source on issues facing the church, the evolving religious landscape in America, and women in leadership as well as a popular speaker at churches and leadership events such as Catalyst and Thrive. In recent months, she's been a featured panelist on HLN's Prime News with Vinnie Politan as well as written one of the top five most popular news articles of the day for CNN.com.
