A new Sabbath school quarterly launches at the beginning of the last quarter of 2019— starting in October. Aimed at young adults—ages 18 to 35—inVerse replaces CQ, which has been published regularly since 1979.
According to inVerse editor, Pastor Justin Kim, the new format represents a change in emphasis to “depth of personal devotional study, rather than the breadth of global conversation” with interaction opportunities now provided through inVerse’s social media channels. Beginning with this year’s fourth-quarter study of the Bible’s book of Nehemiah, inVerse will alternate between following the topics of the Adult Bible Study Guide and topics of particular interest for young adults.
“Through an online survey to the CQ community, comments were received that young adults wanted new topics that addressed issues that they were going through as well as going through more Bible book studies,” Pastor Kim explains.
inVerse encourages users to record their thoughts, responses and discoveries to the Bible study, with aim of equipping them to share their faith with others. “This journal will become a resource to reference anytime you need to share a Bible study, preach a sermon, or refresh yourself on that Bible topic,” says Pastor Kim.
Published by the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department of the General Conference, this new Sabbath school quarterly has been produced in the South Pacific Division as a stand-alone resource, but additional resources including a weekly TV conversation are available from www.hopetv.org/inverse.
inVerse is available now from Adventist bookstores in Australia, New Zealand and across the South Pacific.
