I am deeply thankful for Dr. Brian Fletcher's Gospel Centered Bible Study. This will not only enhance my ability to study the Bible but will enable me to train staff and volunteer leaders on how to rightly handle God's Word. This resource reminds us of the fact that the Bible is not merely a set of tips for better living but rather an encounter with the living God who redeems us and our brokenness.
Tim Toy, Associate Regional Director, Young Life Old Dominion Region
"Dr. Fletcher brings our study of the Bible back to it's roots. In a world with so many methodologies that mislead our study of God's Word, the Gospel Centered Bible-Study is refreshing reminder of the principles Jesus taught us for studying scripture. Dr. Fletcher does an excellent job of guiding us through the (often intimidating) contextual study of the Bible in an exciting, and attainable way. If you are the leader of a small group or Sunday school class, the GCBS will provide an excellent framework and trustworthy course to lead and grow those you are teaching in the study of Scripture."
- Jonathan Bowman, Area Director, Young Life, Amelia, VA
Don’t go another day, reading the Bible the wrong way
Studying the Scriptures is one of the most important things you can do with your time. Start studying it correctly NOW.
Brian Fletcher brings a wealth of pastoral experience, a heart for the gospel, and a rich treasury of means for training church leaders to see the grace in all of Scripture that is the fuel for a faithful life in Christ. This is a great resource for training lay leaders in Gospel-centered Bible study.
Bryan Chapell, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church and author of Christ-Centered Preaching
I heartily recommend Gospel-Centered Bible Study as a comprehensive, Christ-honoring method of interpreting Scripture. The instruction is patient, clear, and accurate as Brian Fletcher leads students through the fundamental steps of Bible interpretation. He keeps the three foci of the best Bible reading in mind: the message of Scripture itself, the work of God in redemption, and the personal appropriation of Scripture in daily life.
Dr. Daniel Doriani, Vice-President of Strategic and Academic Initiative and Professor of Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary
“Who speaks for God? God speaks for God. But in a world where far too many professing Christians follow their hearts into a horribly mis-informed understanding of God’s Word, we need to recover, re-discover, and perhaps learn for the first-time how to read and understand the Scriptures in ways that lead to knowing God’s Word, rather than falling into the error of mis-reading God’s Word. I believe that mis-reading and mis-understanding, and mis-applying God’s Word just might be the greatest error of the church today. Adults, students, parents. . . everyone! . . . will benefit from learning how to do Gospel-Centered Bible Study. In fact, taking this course could revolutionize your faith and life!”
Walt Mueller, President and Founder, Center for Parent & Youth Understanding
I know Brian Fletcher to be a careful student and teacher of Scripture. So I encourage you to let Brian guide you into a greater understanding and application of Scripture for your own spiritual growth, but also to open the way to more effective ministry to others. You will benefit from the content of the studies, but more importantly Brian wants to lead you into a discipline of biblical study that will help you read all of the Bible with greater meaning."
Stephen Smallman, Author. The Walk - Steps for New and Renewed Followers
There is nothing more important for Christians today than to develop a Christ Centered approach to understanding the Scripture. Brian’s work will help you not only see the Scripture through a Christ Centered lens, it will also help you teach others how to see the Scripture from God’s perspective. I highly recommend this course for all those who are looking to see the Scriptures as Jesus saw them.
Bob Perkins, President, Bob Perkins Consulting
Dr. Brian Fletcher (friend and Pastor/Teacher) communicates a solid and viable method for doing Bible Study. His passion to see believers become self-feeding and equipped for leading others is evident in his teaching and personal shepherding. Dependency on Christ and His redemptive work in us and through us helps us better understand the Word of God and live out the Gospel.
Dick Taylor, Navigators Staff, Church Ministry
