Companion Bible Study for Run, Finding Friends and Handling Bullies

Bethabara Faith Ministry welcomes author Glenn Haggerty introducing the Companion Bible Study for the book, Run, Finding Friends and Handling Bullies.

“Tyler Higgins made some blunders and burned some bridges. Can he build a new life after he moves from Florida to a small northern town in the middle of nowhere? Or will he repeat his past mistakes?”


It’s tough being a tween or teen today, there’s so much bad stuff in our culture, and secular entertainment often offers only despair.I wrote my three book Intense fiction series for middle grade and teenaged students because I want to provide serious entertainment from the Christian worldview and to give kids hope that they too can make it through this difficult period of life. And now, I have just released my first companion Bible study!

The idea behind the companion study is to apply Biblical principles to the real-life situations in the novel, Run, Intense Book 2.  The section on finding friends includes studies on forgiveness, selflessness and prayer. The section on bullying includes 10 Biblical tips for handling bullies. All of these subjects relate to specific scenes in the novel, Run. The study includes excerpts from the novel so that purchasing Runseparately although helpful, is not necessary. Companion Bible Study for Run is designed as both a devotional for individual use,or as a group/parent/child study that includes a leader’s guide.

Companion Bible Study for Run, Finding Friends & Handling Bullies would make a great summer devotional for middle school kids and help prepare them for the upcoming school year.
