Enjoy a Closer Encounter with God
As you uncover the rich truths found in Jonah, not only will you gain a fresh and accurate perspective on the life of Jonah, you’ll explore the presence, patience, and provision of our Almighty God.
I was very happy to see that Katie (and her husband, Chris) had produced another study…because her studies do something most others don’t: They force you into the Bible…and that makes them absolutely priceless. Pick up a copy for your own edification…better yet grab a handful and dive into the Word with your friends. You’ll be glad you did.

The Bible is the living and active word of God —but can be intimidating. Thankfully Katie and Chris take the reader by the hand, discipling them in Bible study methods. With the FOCUSed15 approach, in just 15 minutes a day, anyone can taste and see that the Lord is good.
