Melissa Spoelstra’s seventh Bible Study available from Abingdon Women August 4

Melissa Spoelstra leads women on an exploration of the many names of God in her latest women’s Bible study–The Names of God.

It can be hard to make sense of God with all the injustice and suffering in the world. With so many questions about God, how can we really know Him better?

By learning more about His names!

In The Names of God: His Character Revealed by Melissa Spoelstra, a six-week women’s Bible study, women explore the many names of God found in the Bible: Elohim, El Elyon, Yahweh, Abba, Jesus, Messiah, Holy Spirit, and so many more.

During this time of social distancing due to COVID-19, staying connected to others and studying the Bible are even more important to maintain both social and spiritual connection. Groups have found ways to continue to study God’s word with other believers often through virtual meetings.

Melissa and fellow Bible study author Barb Roose share tips on how to host an online Bible study in this instructional video:
