Thorough and creative approach to hosting home Bible studies
Practical method for making contact with non-Christians
Encouraging testimonies from people who've "been there"
Looking to launch an evangelistic home Bible study for non-Christians?
Your Home a Lighthouse is a practical guidebook for opening your
home or office to neighbors, co-workers, friends and family and introducing them to Jesus Christ.
Lighthouse is not another weekly Bible study, although it does
include an effective, ready-to-use outline of the Gospel of John. It is a
complete how-to manual Christians can use to host a home Bible study. The book
outlines each step in an easy-to-read, simple-to-understand format starting
with the Jacks' personal beginnings and leading the reader through the
process--from the first meeting to making disciples of new Christians.
Threaded throughout the book are testimonies of triumphs from Christians who
began Bible studies in their homes, as well as people who became Christians
through home Bible studies.
The objectives, like the book itself, are clear and to the point. The
purpose of an evangelistic home Bible study is to "communicate the love of God
so others will be drawn to Christ as Savior and Lord, and [then] to help new
Christians grow spiritually so they can better communicate the love of God to
others," writes Bob Jacks.
According to Jacks, the goal is not to force Christians to make allowances for
non-Christians, but to meet them on their territory. Lighthouse
encourages Christians to create a totally non-church, non-threatening
atmosphere for a Bible study. "Your study should be of the church, but not in
the church," he writes.
Additionally, if you're thinking you don't have the resources to properly
conduct a Bible study in your home, you're wrong. Every Christian is equipped
with what he or she needs: the Bible and the Holy Spirit.
