"I had the privilege of experiencing Walking With Jesus in my small group bible study under the leadership of Dr. Glen Copple. Reading the Gospel stories side by side gave me a better understanding of each account of Jesus' life and a better appreciation for the Gospel scriptures. Reflecting on the scripture with Glen's questions opened up dialog in the group. The sharing had us laughing, praising, and relating over the many ways scripture guides and corrects our relationships and beliefs. The opportunity to study the Word together in that way edified the faith of my family and church group. The learning and fellowship facilitated by Walking with Jesus are immersive enough to be engaging and simple enough to be relevant across generations and education levels. I encourage anyone with any level of knowledge of scripture to take the opportunity to study the life of Jesus in the format provided by Dr. Glen Copple in the Walking with Jesus Bible study series."

"Our Church is using the Walking With Jesus series Volume 1. This is a part of our discipling program within our Sunday School hour. Our staff and elders made the decision to focus all of our teachings on educating and edifying our members in the scriptures. We wanted a gospel study in parallel that would include background material, gospel texts, photographs, maps, and good interactive questions. This book is designed so that you can do all of the work during your study hour, or you can divide the work up for some home study during the week. We like the idea of how this book will aid in teaching our newer believers the gospel as well as teaching them to study on their own. We also see how this book could be used effectively in any of our small groups."
-Ken Groff, Minister of Spiritual Development, Legacy Christian Church
"In 1905, J. W. McGarvey published one of his most unusual works, The Four-fold Gospel, a harmonization of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John with running commentary. Well known over a century ago, McGarvey's 4-Fold Gospel was used for years in the Restoration Bible Colleges as the "Best of the best."
Now, a century later, with over 18 years of study and research, Glen Copple trumps the 4-Fold Gospel with a 12 volume practical, useable and teachable handling of the 4 Gospels of Christ in his new series, "Walking With Jesus" quoting the most popular the New International Version.
Dr. Glen's study series has been used in the development of the new Northside Christian Church in Lakeland, FL as to grounding the people of God in the basics concerning the Gospel of Christ.
This 3 year treatise is an easy "pick-up-and-teach" course for the busy teacher as well as an on-line course for the serious Bible student who not only wants a head knowledge of the Gospels, but a life-changing experience as he or she learns to walk in the Ways of the Master. I heartily endorse this series as to the teacher not only "talking the talk" but "walking the walk". McGarvey was the "best-of-the-best". Copple is just a little bit better.
The Walking With Jesus Bible Study Series is Doctorate level thesis that is practical, down-to-earth and relevant to our lives today. It is worth an honorary Doctoral Letter."

"So much information and detail. It brightened my mind and my spirit."

"Reverend Glen Copple has developed a wonderful curriculum that teaches an in-depth study of the life of Jesus. Isaiah 55:11 says, `So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing, whereto I sent it.'
The word shared in Rev. Copple's material is powerful and true. I recommend the series to those who want to know about Jesus."
-Dr. William J Peters, Angel Fire Ministries
"The "Getting To Know Jesus" Bible study series is Biblically based. The study is set in the historical context of the New Testament times. This fact allows the student to comprehend the intent of the Gospel writers to their audiences. Once that understanding is clear, we can apply their message to ourselves.
The format is clear, easy to follow, and allows for an inductive method of Bible study. The student is able to draw his/her own conclusions, but within an appropriate Biblical context."
-Joe Grana, D. Min., Church Ministry Dept. Chair, Hope International University, Fullerton, CA
"It gave you just enough information about Jesus, but not too much. I thought it was great!"

"In my 40 years as senior minister at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, I was reminded almost daily of the importance of Bible study to individual Christians specifically and to the church generally. How else can we know how to live God-honoring lives and build a church that lives out the Great Commission to make disciples? Yet surprisingly, solid, Bible-based curricula was not as plentiful as I would have expected. Glen Copple’s “Getting To Know Jesus” / “Walking With Jesus” Bible Study helps address that deficiency by providing a superb, comprehensive and effective curriculum for local churches who want to take their members to a new level spiritually.
Here’s what I like about Glen’s series:
1) It is Bible based. Each lesson focuses on related passages of scripture that illustrate a Biblical principle from the life and teaching of Jesus. Verse-by-verse commentary is provided to help illuminate the lessons from the text.
2) It engages the student by employing probing questions and involving them in a discussion of the scripture.
3) It is creative. The maps, charts and outlines are very helpful in enabling the student to grasp and internalize the topic.
4) It is practical. As we trained our Adult Bible Fellowship, Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry and other teachers at Southeast we emphasized the importance of application in teaching. How else can we expect our students to change their lives and change the culture?
I recommend “Getting To Know Jesus” / "Walking With Jesus" because this Bible study does exactly that---it helps the participant get to know Jesus in a way that is life changing, church changing, and culture changing."

"The course is for a lifetime & Jesus is for eternity."

"Crystal Cathedral has delighted in getting acquainted with New Hope Gospel Ministries and the "Getting to Know Jesus" Bible study program. This program was thoroughly evaluated on our campus by our staff and we recommend it to those who desire to know our Lord more personally.
The Reverend Mr. Glen Copple has the gift of teaching and knowledge. God has enabled him to help others become more intimately acquainted with Jesus, His own Son. Mr. Copple is an ordained minister and teacher who has spent time effectively researching the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
This study is an excellent way to prepare to live eternally with Jesus by "Getting to Know Jesus". Those who enroll in the Bible study will gain new, meaningful, and applicable insights into the life and teachings of our Savior. May God guide and bless you in your labors for His Kingdom."
-Tino Ballesteros, Minister of Christian Education, Crystal Cathedral, Garden Grove, California
"The individual lessons are written in a clearly understandable way, yet also reveal that much research and Bible study went into their preparation. .its focus is clearly on the Person and work of Jesus Christ as described in the Gospels. He has avoided introducing interpretations which would limit their use to a specific denominational understanding of the Scriptures, thus making the course of study usable in any mainline Christian Church."
-Pastor Don Ezell, Harbor Christian Center, Wilmington, CA
"I want you to know that I am enjoying your [Walking With Jesus] Bible study. I look forward to each new lesson."
