Discovering the Scriptures: Asking Questions, Probing Deeper, Always Amazed

Asking Questions, Probing Deeper, Always Amazed.  

An interview with Kerygma Author Boyd Lien, pastor, educator and artist, shares lessons learned through participating in, leading and writing Bible study resources; the impact writing Bible studies has on the way he now reads and studies.

There is No Substitute for Scripture.

An Interview with Dr. Carol J. Miller

"Of the 40 studies in Kerygma’s library of resources, the Rev. Dr. Carol J. Miller, an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, now retired, has written 10 of them."

“The Scriptures are the foundation for deciding what we do and how we think. This is true for individual Christians as well as every congregation, and for the Church as a whole. Put simply, the Bible is the Church’s book, written by the Church, for the Church. Protestants must be able to see the content of their faith in and through the Scriptures. For us, there is no promise of love and forgiveness without the Bible. There is no command to love the neighbor and the enemy. Christianity is a living faith with a guide that can make itself heard over the noise of hate.

Without the community studying the Scripture together, the congregation will not know its mission from God, its’ life together centered in love and mercy. It will remain unaware of its mission as a tool to speak the truth of Almighty God for the life-giving peace of the world. There is no substitute for Scripture.”


Every Bible study group has a story, a history. Small groups, and especially Bible study and prayer groups, are important to the life of the local church and to the Church overall.  Read the story of one group that formed almost 20 years ago for Bible study during the summer.

Reflection: Speaking of Isaiah

As we release Kerygma’s 40th study, Isaiah: Holy, Holy, Holy, we greatly appreciate the help of one Ethiopian court official in bringing attention to both the importance of the book of Isaiah and our participating together to understand how the words of the prophet Isaiah speak to our world today!
