The purpose of this website is to provide free Bible study materials to people who are in jail or prison. If you minister to folks like this, have family members who are incarcerated, or in a pen pal ministry please feel free to download, print and use any of these Bible studies. Right now we do not have the funds to mail any to anyone except the men we meet face to face in the local jail. However, if you have a loved one who is incarcerated, we hope you will print and mail many of these courses to them. If you minister to prisoners and want to use these courses in your teaching, please feel free to use them as much as you like.

If you want to use them in Sunday School, small group studies, or for your own personal study we have designed them to be useful in that way as well, and hope that you are blessed by them. 

Over the years I have developed hundreds of lessons for our jail ministry, my own Sunday school class, or Friday Night Adult Bible study class, but they have to be re-formatted and stripped of copyrighted material before I can post them here. Turns out that is a lot of work. I am posting them here for others in the prison ministry to use. If you use them, let me know which kind you like and why, and I'll work on getting more of those posted next. (e-mail address below, hopefully hidden from robots)

We hope to add several courses a month to this website. Which ones we work on next will depend on which ones you want. Let us know what you are using and how you are using it. E-mail me at: editor lovebiblestudy com

What makes most of these studies unique is the way the questions are arranged and presented. The teacher seldom has to hurry to get done with a lesson or run out of lesson before running out of time. The material is organized around what is core to the lesson and what are optional enhancements. Because they are designed to let the Holy Spirit lead the class, teacher preparation is minimal. This happens because the teacher/leader/facilitator is basically just one of the students who happens to be in charge of guiding the discussion.
