Animate: Bible is a seven-session adult exploration of the Bible. See the topics that are included in the grid below, or by downloading the full Scope and Sequence (60KB, PDF).
In each Animate: Bible session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. The order of the session is up to you and what works best for your group. Session resources are available as a complete curriculum or a la carte.
Animate: Bible poses questions people really have, and then encourages participants to respond—answers aren’t included.
The curriculum is intended to help adults to have an engaging, nuanced, hopeful, and positive relationship with the sacred texts of the Bible.
Sessions feature perspectives from Christian thought leaders on topics such as the canon, history, testaments, gospels, genre, interpretation, and grace.
Built on centrist Protestant theology, it’s not too liberal or too conservative. The sessions are thoughtful, edgy, and present interesting ideas.
Each session encourages participants to discuss, sketch, doodle, create, and share. The beautifully illustrated Bible Journal provides space for reflection and prayer.
Leaders act as a guide, bringing groups to a gallery of ideas, showing them around a bit, and letting them explore.
