NOT THAT THE BIBLE needs help. But we certainly do as we talk about it, try to make sense of it, and work on figuring out what we’re supposed to do about it.
Today I’m launching my first Casual English Bible leader’s guide and atlas. At over 70 pages, it’s downloadable as a PDF for a measly buck…$1.
This first edition covers the Bible book of Acts.
You can read the Bible book of Acts online at the Casual English Bible, no charge, of course. You can even freely use the discussion questions loaded onto CasualEnglishBible.com.
What you get
But in the new leader’s guide and atlas, you get more:
- Tips for teaching Acts in a Bible Study
- All the Discussion Questions for Acts
- Answers and insights for all Discussion Questions
- Atlas of maps that track the stories in Acts
Good idea from a lawyer
A lawyer who specializes in Christian publishing suggested I do this something extra, beyond what you’ll find on the website. He suggested I create a leader’s guide and an atlas.
Sorry to say I was shocked that a lawyer might have a good idea.
I’m giving it a go.
The leader’s guide for Acts runs over 50 pages. The atlas adds another 20.
I’ll continue adding Bible books to the Casual English Bible. And I’ll give thought to creating more leader’s guides and atlases along the way.
I’m not running this project through a publisher. My agent tells me that publishers don’t generally want to mess with leader’s guides. And as for Bible translations and paraphrases, they make publishers nervous.
So I’m doing this on my own, because it’s fun and helpful, for me if no one else.
The fact that I’m doing this on my own makes me a hybrid writer, I’m told. I do some work through conventional publishers. And I do some on my own. Part this, part that: hybrid.
Sorry for the promo. I don’t do this very often. But I’ve never ventured into a project like this before.
I’ll get back to the regular articles next week.
