Discovery Bible Study

The Discover Bible Study tool is a simple, effective, and easily reproduced method for groups to study a passage of Scripture together. We encourage our groups to use this tool as part of their Bible study practice. For tips on using this tool visit How to Lead a Discovery Bible Study at discipleship.org.
