1 Thessalonians, the infographic

Teaching through the book of 1 Thessalonians? I made something for you. =)

Every once in a while I’ll take a request from a reader for an infographic or post that would be useful to them in their ministry. (I seriously wish I had time to do it more often!) But one Bible study teacher in California asked if I could make an infographic handout on the book of 1 Thessalonians, and I couldn’t resist.



The cool thing is, you’re welcome to use it, too!

Just hop aboard my newsletter and I’ll give you the printable PDF. (I’ll also send you updates regarding new resources, blog posts, and assorted Bible geekery.)


The longest and shortest books of the Bible [Infographic]

You may have already seen my articles on the longest and shortest books of the Bible, but I figure it’s high time I made something a little more visual learner–friendly. Also something printer–friendly. Here it is! (You can download it below.)


For more information on how I got these numbers, check out my articles on the longest and shortest books. And if you want to know what these books are about, good news! I’ve written summaries of them all:

Plug in your email address and I’ll send you a copy on the infographic in this piece (which should work on letter paper on your printer). You’ll also be first in line to hear about more cool stuff that happens around here. =)

How Solomon sees his bride in the Song of Songs

I don’t know why, but the Song of Songs has been getting crazy attention this year. There was a movie based on it: The Song (which I haven’t seen). Matt Chandler used it for a dating blueprint: The Mingling of Souls(Heads-up: that’s an affiliate link and I get like two bucks if you buy that book. Moving on.)

Now I’m adding to the Song of Solomon contentfest. I went through the biblical poem and made notes of all the figures of speech. Then I gave those notes to my favorite artist (and wife) Laura. Then she mashed up several of them into one art piece, which I used for this infographic. (You can see Laura’s piece here.)
