Precept Books

These streamlined studies offer the same essential depth as Precept Upon Precept with fewer weekly homework hours. Each study includes the complete text of the book(s) being studied, relevant maps, charts, and timelines, and two to three hours of homework per week. These group studies are best led by a trained Precept Leader. Groups studying In & Out can include students using the corresponding Precept Upon Precept study. These are available in NAS (New American Standard) or ESV (English Standard Version).
