The Gateway Seven Series

A study series on seven books of the Bible, covering seven genres, with a whole-life discipleship focus.

We don’t read a novel the same way we read a legal document.We don’t read poetry in the same way we might read a letter from a friend. So, we don’t read the 66 books of the Bible as if they were all the same kind of writing. Story, song, law, letter, and more, all make up the rich repository of writing that together is God’s word to us. Each type plays a different role in shaping our minds, hearts, imaginations, and actions. Together, they deepen our reading of the whole Bible and open a gateway to new biblical application for our lives – seven days a week.For The Gateway Seven series we’ve selected seven books of the Bible representing seven genres. The features, questions, and thoughts for discussion help you understand each book within its background and genre. Each study has been crafted with the same desire: to offer a gateway to a deeper love of God’s word and richer insights into its implications for all of life, Monday through Sunday.
