Handel, Messiah: Bible studies



Greetings --

For those interested in the replies I received (always plentiful, always
informative -- thanks!) regarding any Bible Studies based on Handel's
Messiah, here they are. Many people suggested the Kerygma and McCabe
resources. A couple people said that they didn't find the Kergyma study
worthwhile-- too shallow/etc. Others heartily recommended it. A few other
suggestions were given, as follows.

For those of us who wear many hats, including "Bible Study Leader," I hope
this helps!

Blessings,
