Living Word School
This is a different kind of Bible school. We start at the beginning of a book and go through it for as far as we get in twelve weeks. However, we have never finished a book in the four times we have done the school. That’s because the purpose of our study is not to complete a task, but to relate with the author.
Jim Stier, who leads the school, prepares questions beforehand to help the students slow down and really look at what is written. They will read the questions and meditate on the implications. Then they put the questions aside and ask the Lord what He wants to teach them, writing down the results. After they have spent about four hours on the text and questions we have class.
