I team-teach an adult Bible study class.  Rather than using a set curiculum, we use various Bible studies, commentaries, topical studies, and occasionally something from Lifeway quarterlies previously used by other classes in our church.  We just wrapped up a 13-week study on Romans using a Lifeway quarterly.  We'll now be having a one week Thanksgiving study followed by a 4-week Advent study - both found on the Internet. We plan to study 1 Corinthians in early 2021.  Earlier in 2020 we used "The Story Continues" a book by J. Ellsworth Kalas.  We've also used a number of Warren Wiersbe's "Be Series" books over the past two years.   Typically, each study is 8 to 13 weeks long.  

We (I team teach with two others) use discussion questions as our teaching approach.  We email 5 or 6 discussion questions to the class members early in the week and, although we teachers share information from our lesson preparation, most of the lesson centers around discussing class members answers to the questions.  (We have been meeting virtually since April)

I share all of that as background to ask for your help in finding something a little different for the Spring or Summer 2021 and I would like it to be a Logos resource - preferably something other than a study on a book in the Bible.   So as not to restrict the scope of responses, I won't say "for example...". 

Thanks in advance for your help.

One option to consider - https://www.logos.com/product/26704/the-mission-of-gods-people-a-biblical-theology-of-the-churchs-mission 

It is a fascinating book reflecting both on who, as God's people, we are called to be and what we are called to do.

There are 13 chapters in part 2, which would lend itself to looking at the ideas behind each chapter for each session

The book is 300 pages long, so it would involve quite a bit of work for you and your colleagues in reviewing each chapter and coming up with a set of questions that would encourage those in the class to reflect on the ideas covered in each chapter.

Wow Graham!  What a great suggestion.  We wouldn't be using it in class before April 2021 so that gives me plenty of time to break it down into weekly components and come up with a schedule.  We can come up with the discussion questions on weekly basis as we prepare each lesson.  Definitely a candidate.

I also happen to chair our Missions Committee so this resource interests me on several fronts.

Thanks!
