Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Kalamazoo-based pastors Jeff and Beth Jones are on a mission to help people all around the world get the basics of the Christian faith. As a result of this vision, Beth Jones, who is also a bestselling Christian author, has written a series of workbooks, titled Getting a Grip on the Basics.
For more than 15 years, Getting a Grip on the Basics has helped new and mature believers build a strong faith foundation rooted in the Word of God. Each book is a combination of teaching and fill-in-the-blank workbook pages encouraging readers to study the scriptures from their Bible. The six books in the Get a Grip series have been used as church curriculum and in Bible schools around the world and have been translated into more than a dozen foreign languages.
The current foreign language translations of the workbooks are listed below, and are also available for free download. To download a PDF of the Get a Grip series in any of these languages, visit http://www.jeffandbethjones.org/free-downloads.
