Remember the workbooks we had in elementary school? Some were for writing our alphabet and numbers while others were for spelling and math. So you might think as adults we are too grown up and sophisticated for workbooks.
Well, think again. The action involved in writing enhances our understanding and learning. So Bible study workbooks help adults grow spiritually.
You may be thinking, “I already have a journal. Why would I need a Bible study workbook? What’s the difference?”
I am glad you asked. Let’s jump in and address your questions and give you some answers along with resources.
What is a journal and what is a workbook?
Most journals are a paper or electronic record of what is going on in your life. They usually are blank for writing your thoughts and feelings about anything. Some people draw and color in them also. They are open-ended with no specific goal. The sky is the limit.
In contrast, a workbook has pertinent questions with room to record your answers. So what you write is guided by specific subject matter. It is academic.
What are Bible Study Workbooks?
Lots of people wonder “What is a good Bible study for beginners?”
New Christians often feel lost and don’t know where or how to start studying the Bible. A workbook solves that problem. It answers the question, “Is there are Bible study guide?”
Bible study workbooks usually include:
- What Scriptures to read
- Some commentary
- Questions about what you are reading to enhance understanding
- Personal application questions that take the mystery out of our connection to God and the Bible
Bible study workbooks can be on a specific topic, where you read Scripture from different parts of the Bible.
They can also be book-based where almost all your Scripture is taken from one book of the Bible. There is greater depth into context and culture.
Topical Bible Study Workbooks for Adults
The Creator’s Classroom has prepared an array of Bible study workbooks just for you on numerous topics. They are an extension of our Bible reading plans.

Bible study workbooks as part of bundles
Bundling has become popular. Not only do you receive a Bible Study Workbook PDF, but other related items. Every part of the bundle is to help you follow the instructions found in Joshua 1:8
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” ESV
The Creator’s Classroom has prepared Bible study bundles with the following items:
- One topical Bible reading plan for the month
- One coordinated Bible study workbook for the month
- One Bible verse “wallpaper” for your laptop or desktop computer
- One Bible verse “wallpaper” for your phone.
There are enough Bible study bundles to keep you studying for 18 months.
Here is a sneak peek at the bundles. Links to each are in their descriptions.
Bloom Where You Are Planted
When life turns out different than we had hoped, God wants us to live for Him right where we are. “Bloom where you are planted” is all about doing just that.
One of the quickest ways to kill your joy is to start comparing yourself to others. It is a vicious cycle that is never satisfied. It sucks you in like a rip current. Start today conquering comparison.
Current events, whether in the news or in our personal lives can rob our joy and create fear if we aren’t careful. “Conquering fear” is important because fear does not come from God.
Life is full of problems. How are we supposed to rise above them? Facing adversity addresses those rough times in life.

Freedom In Forgiveness
Too many people are caught in a prison of anger and bitterness. Life and people can treat us unjustly.
Forgiving seems like approving of what happened. The enemy is crafty at whispering lies about forgiveness.
Take the first step towards freedom in forgiveness by doing this topical study.
Freedom In Jesus
What does “freedom in Jesus” mean? Can we now do anything we want? That is this month’s topic. Freedom means something different than many people think.
Friendship and Community
Do you know how to pray? That is this month’s topical study covered in our Bible study workbook.
Identity In Christ
Many people do not comprehend fully who they are. The opinions of others weigh heavily on their minds. They often crumble and give in on things that would not matter if they just understood their “Identity In Christ.”
If this describes you, you may also like to read, “I don’t know who I am anymore.“
Importance of the Bible
What role does the Bible play in your life? Is it your go-to when you are feeling down or hurt or a host of other feelings? Does it guide your decisions?
In this month’s Bible reading plan and workbook, you will learn the importance of the Bible to your life.
Is joy possible in any circumstances? In this month’s Bible study workbook, you will discover where joy comes from and what joyful living means.
New Life In Jesus
Originally designed as a New Year Bible reading plan and Bible study, “New Life In Jesus” helps you understand that you are not held captive by your past.
No Greater Love
“No Greater Love” Bible study bundle is about the amazing love we can have from God through Jesus Christ. Use it as a study for Valentine’s Day, or any other time of the year.
Praise And Thanksgiving
Praise and Thanksgiving are an important part of the Christian life leading to great joy regardless of what is going on around us.
Run To The Father
The father-child relationship was originally meant to show us the love and care of God our father. But as we all know, we live in an imperfect world with imperfect people.
If your dad was not your hero because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment just know that God is not like your dad.
I hope you will take advantage of this Bible study workbook and learn that it is safe to Run to God the Father.

Soul Food For Spiritual Growth
Just like a child needs food to grow and be healthy, so do Christians need “Soul Food” for Spiritual Growth.
Unlike having to buy groceries for our families, God has provided our soul food at a price we can afford. He has given freely all that we need to grow and live Godly lives through Jesus Christ.
Showers Of Blessing
Do you know how much God has blessed you? He gives us innumerable blessings that we often overlook.
Come along this month and discover some of the “Showers Of Blessing” that are part of living in God’s family.
Taking Care Of God’s Temple
Did you know that taking care of your body is important? God does not live in church buildings or temples. He lives in us if we know Jesus personally and have accepted His forgiveness for sin.
This month’s Bible reading plan and Bible study workbook are all about “Taking Care of God’s Temple“.
Words Of Jesus
Having a complete Bible to read and study is a great privilege. Many people in the world are not that fortunate.
If you had to choose only part of the Bible to have in your possession, the “Words of Jesus” would be a complete guide on knowing God and how to live.
