Suggestions for adult Sunday school materials?

My church is considering changing adult Sunday school materials. We're looking for something theologically conservative that can be used as a starting point for discussion. The particular doctrinal slant isn't important; we just want something that consistently takes a high view of Scripture. I've b...

Re: Porn spammer

Re: About registering on this forum

Yes I believe the forum has that ability, but I would prefer to leave the default to admin activation just because the majority of signups are spam... even ones that appear to have a "normal" name.

Porn spammer

Another spammer, and so soon after the last one just a few days ago. And this one is advertising porn. 40 posts and counting over the last 22 minutes, as I type this. There really is no need for this to keep happening. I wonder if the admins wouldn't like to reconsider my suggestions for eliminating...

Re: Christians, children and fantasy literature

I'm not interested in exploring or defending whether or not JK Rowling possess genuine Christian faith, but to say her novels lack Christian thought and motivations isn't true. Here's a link to an article that addresses the Christian imagery in the HP series: http://www.mtv.com/news/1572107/harry-p...
