1. DISCIPLESHIP JOURNAL ON-LINE ARCHIVES
I've been a subscriber to Discipleship Journal (DJ) magazine for over twenty years. I've also written many articles for this publication. And I find that I often use back issues of DJ as resources for various topics on which I teach.
Now, DJ has restructured their archives so that many portions of past issues are available on-line through their on-line archives. All you have to do is go to the archive homepage where you can browse by topic, by author's name, or do a search.
2. DISCIPLESHIP JOURNAL BIBLE READING PLANS
At the end of every fall semester (which for us, wraps up in December), I provide the ladies in my classes with various Bible reading plans. Though I've used several, I consistently return to those put out by DJ. I just think their the best, the most flexible, and the easiest to use.
In the past (with permission from DJ, of course), I've just run copies of the Bible Reading Plans I receive in the Nov/Dec issue of the magazine I receive each year. Now, DJ has offered them in batches of 25 that cost less than what it costs me to print them.
DJ offers three different Bible Reading Plans (all have free downloadable samples in PDF format):
- The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan (25 four-part readings per month designed to enable the user to read the Bible through in one year)
- Discipleship Journal's Book-at-a-Time Bible Reading Plan (2 readings per day, one from a single OT book and one from a single NT book at a time)
- Discipleship Journal's 5x5x5 Reading Plan (5 minutes of reading, 5 days per week, plus 5 ways to dig deeper, that enable the user to read through the entire NT in one year)
These 3.5" x 7" laminated cards are sold in packs of 50 for only $5.60 (about 11 cents each), but they hold a wealth of encouragement:
sampler pack of 17 cards for under $5.
I hope you'll find something useful here for your students or for your lesson preparation.
