Forgive us if this seems obvious, but it can be really difficult to drive home important biblical and theological ideas to a congregation or small group that lacks a basic understanding of the fundamentals. Sadly, this is a dilemma churches are increasingly facing, and unfortunately, limited resources exist that help build a strong foundation for your community.
OneBook: Invitation is Seedbed’s answer to this common struggle. The Invitation study is a one-time, ten-week journey led by Dr. Brian Russell, Old Testament professor at Asbury Theological Seminary, that sets the stage for further group exploration through the rest of the OneBook series. While certainly not a prerequisite, Invitation does provide a helpful foundation for how to read, study, and understand scripture.
Dr. Brian Russell is Dean of the School of Urban Ministries and Professor of Biblical Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary. He is also a consultant and speaker on the missional interpretation of Scripture and creating a missional ethos in communities of faith.
