Enrich your personal walk with God by using this study guide to In Granite or Ingrained? by Skip MacCarty.
Whether you use it alone or with fellow Christians in a dynamic small group experience, the Study Guide will help you review and retain the key points of the book, explore deeper aspects and applications of the major issues, and strengthen your devotional relationship with God.
In Granite or Ingrained? is a serious book. The questions and debates surrounding the relationship of the old and new covenants in Scripture are not arcane or irrelevant academic arguments. The issues have eternal consequences in the life of the professed believer. Earnestly searching out the deep things of God should be the joy of every Christian.
Every theme of Scripture contains an invitation from God. The prophets and apostles of old were inspired by the Spirit not simply to produce an encyclopedia of religious information. They were to be bearers of a divine invitation to come to Him who is the way, the truth, and the life. God desires that readers of Scripture will recognize His invitation, respond to it, and thereby find true life in Him.
In Granite or Ingrained? --accompanied by this Study Guide for individual or small group use--will help anyone on that most important of all quests.
