The Bible. Many people talk about this best selling book, but what’s it all about? More specifically, what’s in it for you? This course will introduce you to the Bible—how it came into being, its contents, its main characters and events—in the hope that you will want to study it, get to know its ultimate author, and discover the important message that it has for you personally.
“My name is Lance, and during the past 40 years, I've been incarcerated for 13 years. I was released from jail in 2006. In 2009, I picked up a bunch of new charges (both state & federal). To sum up the situation, if I lose my trial, I will get 40 years because I am a repeat, repeat offender.
But today, by the grace of God, I am a new person! I have been saved, and God has given me peace and contentment that I never experienced before. One day, I was sitting in my cell when I noticed this short book about Jesus. It was an ECS Ministries study course called The Bible—What's In It For You?
In the 10 months since I picked up that book and started reading, the work that God has done in me is unbelievable. I once used to recruit people to commit crimes and now through the grace of God, I run Bible Study groups in the prison. All the lessons we discuss come straight out of the ECS courses and because every topic is backed by Scripture, it's been really easy to turn it into real-life Bible studies. I've never, at any point in my life, felt more free and more alive. I know it is through God's grace that I have been saved by faith in Jesus!”

What this world needs is a King who will rule it with firmness, wisdom, and compassion. This is the kind of King that God has planned for this world. His name is Jesus Christ, and He is God’s Son. But Jesus was rejected when He came to earth the first time, as you will see in your study of Matthew's account of Jesus' life.
Matthew evidently loved "King Jesus" and looked forward to the day when He will reign on earth. Our hope is that this passion and prospect will grip your heart as well.View full product details

Mark's Gospel is unique. It is not a biography of Jesus, like Matthew and Luke. It is a record of Jesus' actions and achievements. Everything He did was in service to His Father and ultimately "to give His life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45). Join us in this study of the Gospel of Mark as he presents Jesus as the Savior-King who conquers demons, disease, and death.View full product details
