The No-Prep Bible Study Series

The No-Prep Bible Study Series is designed to meet the needs of the untold thousands of small groups engaged in bible study.  They are known in the church world as Community Groups, Life Groups, Small Groups, Adult Bible Fellowships, and even the old fashioned name of, yes, Sunday School Classes. 

By no prep, we mean no preparation on the part of the leader or the participants.  You can simply read the blurbs, answer the questions, and bring a meaningful bible study to conclusion in 45 minutes—with no prep. 

These lessons are geared for Christians across denominational lines.  Indeed, every lesson has been trial tested on real small groups from different denominations.  Participants have invariably found that the thoughts presented are both interesting and compelling. 


Kenny Beck has enjoyed teaching adult Bible classes for over 35 years in three different denominations—Baptist, Methodist, and Bible Church. He has taught every size and age-range of adult Bible classes imaginable. His current class averages well over 40 people ranging in age from 10 to 91.  

A typical Kenny Beck lesson features a colorful handout, a huge white dry erase board, a good dollop of class participation, and plenty of enthusiasm.

Vocationally, Kenny has been a full-time private piano teacher in Katy, Texas, since 1984.  There are two songs floating around the Christian world written by Kenny and his Nashville pal, Jeff Nelson—”Forever His Blood” and “Take My Life.”  “Forever His Blood” is available on You-Tube.

Our next three booklets are in process: I’m excited about all three of these newbies!

“Jesus’ Most Challenging Parables”

My second parable book came out July 14th–Jesus’ Most Challenging Parables. Feedback has been super positive, especially on the very first lesson: The Pharisee & The Tax Collector. Here’s all the lessons: Honestly, I think this booklet is our most powerful to date! Here’s how you tell our two parable books apart: Coming soon are:
