The Bible Course in Prisons

An eight-session course helping prisoners explore the world's bestseller.

Following on from the huge success of The Bible Course, we’re delighted to introduce a Prisons Edition to help prisoners on their journey with the world’s bestseller.

The Bible is a big and complicated book to read and for many it can be difficult to know where to start. Whether you’re a prison chaplain who has run a Bible study group and wants to build the confidence of those who attend so they can study the Bible on their own, or you want to help prisoners to connect together the bits they’ve been reading to understand the wider story, The Bible Course: Prisons Edition is a great resource – whether prisoners are familiar with the Bible or just starting out.

  • The Bible Course: Prisons Edition helps prisoners to see how the books of the Bible are part of one big story
  • Using a unique storyline, The Bible Course: Prisons Edition will show prisoners how key events, books and characters fit together
  • The video teaching, course guide and daily readings will help prisoners grow in confidence as they read the Bible for themselves
  • It acts as a great follow-on resource for those who have done introductory courses like Alpha and Christianity Explored, as part of a wider chaplaincy package
