How to Start a Bible Study Group
by Carl Caton
In the late 1980's, my wife and I lived in an outlying area near San Antonio, Texas. Having felt the need to be part of a bible study group, I drove a half-hour drive into the big city once a week to be part of a men's bible study there. It was an excellent group with good leadership but the commute, bible study, and fellowship time added up to a two and a half our commitment on Thursday mornings. While the value of the study made it worthwhile, I simply couldn't take the time off from work every week. <more...>

Keeping Guardrails on the Discussion
by Carl Caton
If you've read elsewhere about my philosophy of raising up leaders in your bible study group, you know that I'm an advocate of giving every man an opportunity to lead a lesson. The diversity of life experiences brings a rich flavor to the group. But that same diversity can bring disagreement, something I keep a careful watch on. Your job as the overall leader of the group is to carefully steer the group down the road, helping the group from falling off into a ditch. <more...>

How to Lead a Bible Study
by Carl Caton
How do you lead a bible study? Well, actually, you don't. The best bible study "leader" is better described as a facilitator. If you happen to be like most people who lead a group, your best skill is in asking good questions. <more...>

Men's Bible Study DVD
by Carl Caton 
One of the greatest new resources in small group curriculum is the advent of a wide variety of DVD based materials for men's bible studies. DVD based curriculum is a great help to a small group leader as it takes a lot of pressure off the leader to "get everyone on the same page." Typically, when you're starting up a <more...>

Small Group Ice Breakers
by Carl Caton
Whenever a group of people gather in a room, especially when people don't know one another well, there can be a subtle nervous tension that people feel. Sometimes folks are a little anxious, not knowing what to expect or if they will be called upon to speak. The icebreaker is what helps everyone settle down to get focused on the topic at hand. <more...>

Men's Bible Study Ideas
by Carl Caton
Over the years, I've looked for a lot of ideas for my men's bible study. Usually a small group leader is always on the lookout for a good curriculum to use. There are a lot of basic "categories" of where you will find ideas. A large number of publishers produce "bible study guides." These guides may focus on a book of the bible or on a topical theme like "Courageous Men of the Bible." You can also choose to focus on a particular spiritual discipline like prayer. <more...>

Men's Bible Study
by Timothy Whitt
Most men struggle through relationships with other men and women because they do not want to appear like they are unable to handle whatever comes their way. Most men will not ask for help or appear like they need assistance, because it is not the macho thing to do. That is why Christian men need an outlet to help them talk about what they are feeling inside. <more...>

Young Men's Bible Studies
by Carl Caton
While I don't think this material qualifies as a "bible study", I do highly recommend the book "SHAPE" by Eric Rees. Eric is a staff member of Saddleback Church and the book is a great companion to the perennial bestseller, Purpose Driven Life.

Best Bible Study for Men
by Carl Caton
So, what's the best bible study for men? That's a simple question but I'm not sure I can give a simple answer. Every group of men is really a collection of individuals. Each man has his own strengths and weaknesses.
