These books are put out each year to use in Adult Sunday School classes. 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 in this year are taken from the books of James, 1 and 2 Peter, John, Jude, Esther, Job Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, Revelation, Hebrews, 1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus. Writers include Orrin Root, Charles R. Boatman, Ronald L. Nickelson, Ronald L. Oakes, Kenneth Goble, Richard W. Baynes, Dennis Gaertner, John W. Wade, W. Edward Fine, Alan Weber, Robert Shannon, Jerran Jackson, Kenneth Beck, Gary Carpenter, David Marvin, Jon Weatherly, Thomas E. Friskney and others. Lessons cover a wide range of relevant topics for Christians, such as: Live in Faith, Live in Hope, Live with Purpose, Job: Integrity in Times of Testing, Wisdom for the Times of Our Lives, and Living Expectantly: Preparing for the Lord's Return.
