Bible Study with Wife?

Is there a Bible study (free or for sale) that RPC recommends as something to lead for your wife? I want to lead her in a study, but the amount of material available is overwhelming. I want to be able to structure and schedule something that becomes part of our routine. I'm not a lifelong Christian, so I will be learning as well through this. Thanks.

I'm an enthusiastic supporter of the 5 Aspects of Man/Woman study because it's Biblically solid and reinforces RP principles. It was written decades ago and still used widely in churches. Our church does a 12-month in-depth study using this material and the class fills up every year with a huge waiting list.

Thanks for the reply. Would you recommend that we both work through the Man/Woman studies together?

Yes, the chapters coincide. Do 1 small chapter each week separately then come together to discuss. Warning, if you are honest in your answers it will be brutal.

Thanks again. I downloaded the first chapter of each study from the website.

I strongly encourage you NOT to use a study, but to go straight into Scripture. Read the 300-series posts on quiet times and Bible study to get a picture for how to study Scripture on your own. Pick a book and go at it. I recommend Philippians to start with. It's short, but has a lot of depth to it. I memorized the book and haven't found a single aspect of daily life that isn't addressed by something in that book. I've done the same things with other more popular books, like James and Romans, but haven't found the same fruit as Philippians on a pragmatic level (though they certainly hold significant theological insight).

Thanks so much, I will consider this as well

I second going straight to scripture to study the bible together. You can take turns reading chapters aloud, discuss and pray together. If you are concerned about being able to have structure, the holy bible app has plenty of plans that walk you through specific passages with commentary
