The first in a series of small group studies for teens and young adults that traces God’s story of redemption through the whole Bible, The Gospel-Centered Life in Exodus for Students is a twelve-lesson resource written by Kristen Hatton to teach students how to study God’s Word and connect it to their lives.

As students come together to read and discuss they will discover that, just like the ancient Israelites, we all need a Redeemer. As the Israelites grumble, complain, disobey, worship false gods, and try to be their own Savior, teens and young adults will see that they too do those same things. But they will also see how God gives grace to the guilty and over and over again comes to the rescue, pointing to the deliverance of God’s people that is later fulfilled in Christ and the gospel.

With each easy-to-use, self-contained lesson that requires no outside work and can be completed in just one hour, teens and young adults will find and meet Jesus in unexpected places and see the pattern of redemption present even in the Old Testament. As they learn that the entire Bible is one unfolding story about Jesus, and that the same God who spoke to Moses also sent his Son.


Kristen Hatton is a native Texan now putting roots down in Edmond, OK with her church-planter/pastor husband and their three teenagers. With a public relations background from Southern Methodist University, Kristen has a wide array of professional experiences, none of which she counts as important as the job of being a “present” mom. Through leading a small group Bible study of teenagers, she has discovered her passion for teaching and writing about God’s grace. She is the author of Face Time: Your Identity in a Selfie World and Get Your Story Straight: A Teen's Guide to Learning and Living the Gospel.


"With our students teetering dangerously on the edge of biblical illiteracy—and many already deep into that chasm—Kristen Hatton has provided us with a resource that takes Scripture seriously, leading students into a deep understanding/application of the biblical text, which honors both the unchanging nature of scriptural truth and its relevance in a changing youth culture landscape."
Walt Mueller, President, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

"As a father and pastor, I am always grateful for resources that effectively communicate God's truth to students. This is especially true when said resources demonstrate how all Scripture—in both New Testament and Old—is central to God's unfolding plan of redemption through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Kristen's The Gospel-Centered Life in Exodus for Students is such a resource. Whether you are a pastor, a youth worker, a parent, or a teen, I encourage you to discover Jesus through the pages of Exodus. For the God who brought Israel out of physical slavery then, is also the God who brings us out of spiritual slavery today."
Scott Sauls, pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church; author of Jesus Outside the LinesBefriend, and From Weakness to Strength

"Any youth worker or parent should pick up this helpful resource Kristen has produced. The Gospel-Centered Life in Exodus can be used in one-to-one ministry, small groups, or large group settings. It's very user-friendly and, most importantly, points students to Jesus Christ. At Reformed Youth Ministries, our passion is passing the faith on to the next generation, and this resource will greatly assist us to that end!"
John Perritt, Director of Resources at Reformed Youth Ministries; author of Your Days are Numbered, What Would Judas Do?,and Time Out! The Gift or the God of Youth Sports

"Christian teenagers can sometimes wander and whine just like the Israelites of old. But the great I AM of Exodus is still their God who picks them up where they are and guides them through the wilderness of life to their heavenly home. Kristen Hatton's resource on Exodus will serve parents, pastors, and youth workers well, as they seek to bring God's Word to bear on the lives of teenagers in their families and churches."
Jonny Gibson, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA

"All the important questions for life face us in our teen years. What better way to engage with God, truth, sorrow, and reality than in the story of Exodus? Hatton has written a reflective guide through the foundational story of deliverance. She asks students to grapple with the text by providing twenty-first-century illustrations and discussion-provoking exercises. My favorite: what would be in your jar of remembrance? Perhaps this book!"
J. A. Myhre, Associate Area Director for Serge in East and Central Africa; pediatrician; author of The Rwendigo Tales series

"Kristen has taken an ancient text and made it accessible for today. It is clearly written, theologically rich, and gives us the gospel of grace that every teenager needs. The study uses a variety of methods to communicate how the book of Exodus points to the great redemptive story of love found in the person of Jesus Christ. He is the answer to the longings we all have. This is a great resource for anyone who works with high school or college students!
Mike Ford, RUF Campus Minister, University of Arkansas

    Fantastic Resource

    Published by Rebecca Heck on 08 28 2018

    It's so incredibly hard to find Bible studies for teenagers that have theological depth AND are easy to read, study, and to jump into. Thankfully, Kristen Hatton's study on Exodus for Students is just that. Winding together stories that could have been pulled from my own students' lives with the Biblical account of Exodus, this study allows students of any spiritual depth to be led to the foot of the Cross and find love, forgiveness, mercy, and grace waiting for them. With the study's breakdown and Leader Notes in the back of the book, this can be easily handed to a volunteer or even peer led group for students to study through. I'm looking forward to using this in my ministry and encourage others to do the same!

    Great Resource for Making Exodus Come Alive for Students

    Published by Ben Birdsong on 08 07 2018

    When it comes to student Bible study resources, it can be a challenge to find resources that both effectively engage the Bible and connect truth to the lives of students. After her own frustration with limited resources which accomplished these ends, Kristen Hatton set out to create solid and relevant resources for students to engage with God's Word. Her latest release The Gospel-Centered Life: Exodus for Students is a great resource for helping students to dive into this foundational Old Testament book. Exodus for Students is an effective resource because it begins by clearly connecting the content of the lesson to the real life experiences of the students. It then goes on to dive into the text. Students are not simply given summaries of the Bible story, but they are challenged to dive into the text for themselves. Hatton provides a very helpful commentary in her book that brings out the below the surface truths of the passage such as how the understandings of the Hebrew words help to make the text come to life. She the concludes the lesson with an exercise that helps connect the truth from an applicational place back into the students' lives.  Hatton has created a biblical, helpful, and practical tool to help small group leaders, parents, and youth pastors to teach the book of Exodus to students. I would highly recommend this resource as a tool that will benefit all who use it and help students to grow in their faith through God's Word.
