BibleShareware.org, Inc.

In Colossians 1:10, Paul prayed that the Colossian believers would continue "growing in the knowledge of God." We believe that this growth is essential for developing a deep, intimate relationship with Him. One way to achieve this growth is through studying the Bible.

BibleShareware.org, Inc. is a non-profit ministry. It was created in 2004 to provide high-quality Bible study materials to individuals and to groups. The curriculum is written by Vicki Scott Burns, a professional writer/editor/teacher who has taught Bible study for 19 years. All curriculum is edited by a technical editor and is tested by a group of "real life" consumers. All curriculum is published by and remains the property of BibleShareware.org, Inc.

Our curriculum uses the Inductive Bible Study method: a process which involves using the Bible as the primary study tool (rather than relying upon commentaries and Bible footnotes) to observe, correlate, interpret, and apply Scripture. The goal of our curriculum is to deepen your knowledge of God and His Word, and to consequently deepen your relationship with Him.

All studies are based on the NIV translation. All studies include homework for 5 days and offer two levels of questions: Core questions and IS: Investigate Scripture questions. The Core questions require @ 20-30 minutes per day. The IS questions are optional questions which provide a deeper understanding of the Core questions. The IS questions typically occur on three of the five days. Each IS question requires @ 15-20 minutes.

All of our studies may be accessed free of charge at www.bibleshareware.org.
