Monday, October 2nd, over on the Off QUEUE Message Board, I (we, if you choose to join) will begin a 13 week study that will take us through the New Testament.  That’s right, with 13 weeks left in 2006, we’ll read through and follow the lead (for the most part) of Thomas Lea & Tom Hudson in their study by the same name. 

You can purchase the workbook from Amazon at: for under $19.  In Jacksonville, you can pick up a copy at Lifeway in the Town Center. 

This may sound like a lot for a busy time of the year, but in the same amount of time as it takes to watch Survivor, you can read a small portion (about 4 chapters) of scripture and work through a few pages of a workbook.  I won’t lie, there may be days/nights that the hour’s worth of work may impact the rest of your day, but after a couple of years buried in the Old Testament, I personally can’t wait.  My own rediscovery of the Church is a driving force in looking at the beginning of the Church in the New Testament. 

If you are going to join with me (us) on this study, drop me an email to let me know.  If it’s just not your thing, join with us in prayer that a few people will find new life in the words of the New Testament.  I look forward to hearing from you…
