The study of the Bible is, and ought to be, a life-long study — not a six months, one year, or four-year limited course. If ENOUGH of our enrolled students show an interest and desire to continue on, the Course probably will continue indefinitely. As long as God's people continue HUNGRY for the spiritual food, we, God's servants, will continue to feed them. Already in print are 36 lessons and tests.
