Through the Bible Handbook of Answers
This book provides suggested partial answers for the discussion questions in the Through the Bible text. This can be used by a student to compare his answers to ours, or by a teacher who is grading the student's workbook.
The questions in Through the Bible are designed to get you involved searching Scriptures and allowing the Holy Spirit to relate them to your own life. You begin building a theological understanding from the Word and the Holy Spirit. It is best if you can do it in the context of a group, for as "iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another" (Prov. 27:17).
We strongly recommend that you search out your own answers to the questions first. Then you may come to this Handbook of Answers to see if the Virklers discovered truths which you could add to your answers. In this way you will receive revelation from God from your own meditation on the Scriptures, and only secondarily compare it to what others have found. It is important for every Christian to search Scriptures for themselves, and then seek confirmation, adjustment and expansion from others in the body of Christ.

To ensure that this message transforms your life, we offer you four options. Any of these choices will assist you in internalizing this teaching, helping you to be a doer of the word and not a hearer only (James 1:22) and allowing you to produce a bountiful harvest in your life.
Opportunity 1 – Host a home or church group
This home group in Slovakia shows the excitement of learning to hear God's voice together!
We learn more quickly if we are surrounded by others who are seeking to master the same skill. Pray and ask God who you know who might want to grow in this truth also and open your home to them for 10-12 weekly sessions (or host a small group in your church). We provide several resources to help you present this powerfully and effectively in a group setting, including DVDs and application activities. Experience the joy of cultivating skills together with a group of friends! Discover how to create and post your group…
Opportunity 2 – Hire a Personal Spiritual Trainer to coach you
Coaching or discipling is the method Jesus used to train the twelve disciples.
When you team up with someone ahead of you in an area to mentor you, and you share your questions and steps of growth with them, receiving their counsel in return, you ascend more quickly into mastery in that area. We have trained coaches who have mastered this topic who will commit to working with you for a 90-day period.
