The study was written by members of the LC3 Steering Committee, and edited by the Rev. Steven King, of Maple Lake, Minnesota. It is comprised of seven sessions, one for each article of the Common Confession, written in a straightforward question and discussion format. Each lesson features an introduction, passages from the Small Catechism, the Lutheran Confessions, and the ELCA Confession of Faith. The second half of each two-sided sheet includes a number of discussion questions -- some focusing on an expository Scripture text, and others on a narrative Bible story. Additional Scripture references are also provided for further reading.
Available on the same web page as the Bible Study are the essays on the Common Confession written by the Steering Committee of Lutheran CORE. These commentaries can serve as background and supplementary material for the study, helping to make the connection between biblical doctrine and our modern context.
