Converge is where life and faith come together.

When the Holy Spirit showed up with power in Acts 2, it’s unlikely many of the believers present in Jerusalem that day had any idea the magnitude of what was in store. The Spirit began building the church then and is still active in the world today. In these four sessions based on Acts, Carter explores the work of the Holy Spirit in three areas: shaping, guiding, and disrupting. He maintains that the Holy Spirit creates Christian community, shapes and reshapes community, and works through groups of believers to speak to the culture. In Holy Spirit and Community, you’ll learn how to recognize the Spirit at work in your community.

Converge Bible Studies is a series of topical Bible studies based on the Common English Bible. Each title in the series consists of four studies on a common topic or theme. Converge can be used by small groups, classes, or individuals. Primary Scripture passages are included for ease of study, as are questions designed to encourage both personal reflection and group conversation. The topics and Scriptures in Converge come together to transform readers’ relationships with others, themselves, and God.
