You might ask why the book and theme studies are simultaneously studied rather than as separate classes. We are trying to meet three primary goals. We believe the theme study is sufficient to do this, but we sense that we are not sufficiently exposing them to familiarity with how God meets us through meditation in whole Bible books. One can study them separately, but we greatly suggest reflectively studying the Bible books rather than informationally or analytically studying them as is commonly done.
Of primary importance is the meeting of God so He can train us.
