These books are put out each year to use in Adult Sunday School classes. This edition is for 2004-2005. This is actually the "Teacher's Edition". It can also be used for individual study. I think this is an excellent verse-by-verse study. Lessons for the first half of the year are basically Bible Survey lessons covering such topics as Created for a Purpose, Creating a New Covenant, Creating New Hope, A New Creature in Christ, God Calls a People, Jesus Calls His Followers. Additional topics are Overcoming Grief, Overcoming Pride, Overcoming Uncertainty, and Overcoming Predjudice. The second half of the year concentrates on God's Project: Effective Christians, based on Romans and Galatians; and Jesus' Life, Teachings and Ministry based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke.
