On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and eliminated the constitutional right to abortion after ruling on a new court case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Thom and Sam discuss the implications of this decision. This historical decision will have a lasting impact on the culture, and the church must be ready to serve. 

  • Many churches have served in this area for decades, and they are well-positioned to do more
  • More babies will be born and more families created, making for a more complex family dynamic, especially with teenage moms
  • More foster parents are needed as the system is already overloaded in many communities
  • Crisis pregnancy centers will need more volunteers
  • Without immediate intervention, child hunger is likely to get worse, not better
  • Women will face greater challenges and stresses when faced with an unwanted pregnancy
  • Your church has a new opportunity to minister on the front lines

The One Year Chronological Study Bible is a truly unique combination of tools to transform your reading and study. We call it The Five-Tool Bible because it employs five “tools” for a fresh reading experience.

Like all One Year Bibles, it is formatted into 365 daily readings, setting the pace for you to read through the whole Bible in one year.

Like all chronological Bibles, the books and stories are organized in their historical order—the order the events happened—which differs in numerous places from the canonical order.

Why was The One Year Chronological Study Bible created? To bring the useful tools of One Year, chronological, 14 eras, and study together in one economical package. (List price: $29.99 hardcover, $24.99 softcover.)

Release Date: September 6. Already available for pre-order wherever books are pre-ordered.
