I-GIG Participant's Guide

Welcome to this new International Groups Investigating God (I-GIG) Guide! Being part of an I-GIG group helps you get to know God by understanding what the Bible says about him. Since the Bible was written thousands of years ago by people living in cultures probably very different than your own, the original meaning of the text is often not obvious. This guide includes group Bible studies, so you can learn together, and additional sections you can read on your own to better understand the Bible and its message. If you will be leading the group Bible studies, there are step-by-step instructions here.

This is a work in progress, so we could use your feedback to make it better. Content is being added and updated regularly. If you're looking for the original I-GIG Guide (published in 2005) it is online here and available in print.
