Sermon Series Traces the Footsteps of Paul
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to trek in the footsteps of the apostle Paul? Here's your opportunity to do just that! A special five-week sermon series, the "Footsteps of Paul," was shot on location at various sites in southern Europe and features Rev. Gregory Seltz, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour. This excellent lecture study series, produced in conjunction with LHM's Mediterranean cruise in November 2013, allows the viewer to experience the dramatic sights and sounds of early Christianity, especially as the new faith played out in cities like Athens, Corinth, Rome and other locales. The travelogue and introduction videos provide background and context for Paul's experiences during his mission journeys. These round out and enrich the sermons for the listener.

Unraveling the Church-State Relationship
The Intersection of Church & State examines the dynamic give-and-take relationship that has marked the crossroads of church and state in this country. Though roadblocks are frequent where the two meet, there is still tremendous potential for cooperative work to be done. This four-part Bible study underscores the healthy collaboration between church and state in caring for the needy, settling refugees, child adoption, chaplain services and more. It will also consider how these historical church and state partnerships can be jeopardized. In the end, it will suggest a far superior metaphor in describing the church-state relationship is not one using a wall or barrier but, instead, an intersection, which benefits us all.

Bible Studies Make Great Outreach Tools!
When deciding on your next men's group Bible study, don't forget the outreach angle. For instance, the Bible on Trial: Beyond a Reasonable Doubt will likely have a wide appeal to many who wonder about the reasons we believe Scripture is the true and inspired Word of God. Featuring scholarly comments from Drs. Paul Maier, Jeff Kloha and Randall Price, as well as contributions from manuscript specialist Joel Lampe, this Bible study sheds great light on the Bible and its revered place in the Judeo-Christian heritage.

What's the End-Goal of Parental Discipline?
Now that the emotional furor surrounding Adrian Peterson's discipline style has settled down a bit, I thought I'd take another look at parental discipline. I think we get bogged down in methods, and we forget to step back and consider the long-term purpose of our parental discipline. Isn't the end-goal of all our discipline to send our young men and women off into the world equipped to discipline themselves, to control their own dangerous and destructive desires?

Men's NetWork Bible Studyl:: Mormons: Who They Are, What They Believe
(Includes subtitles in English) The Mormon Church (aka The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) means different things to different people. From its feel-good, family-oriented TV commercials to its Grammy- and Emmy-winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir to its bicycling missionaries, the Mormon Church is high profile all the way. Founded in the early 19th century, this religious movement boasts more than 15 million members and 85,000 missionaries, ranking it in the top five of "Christian denominations" in the U.S., according to the National Council of Churches.
