Can the truth really change how we live? And how do we know what is true in a world of so many falsehoods? In this timely study, Jeff Dodge explores how Christians are called to share the gospel message with the world—free of do-good, moralistic, try-harder religion, while also boldly calling those who believe to a gospel-centered, radical new life of love.
Titus: Life-Changing Truth in a World of Lies is a study resource in the Gospel-Centered Life in the Bible series that provides seven in-depth lessons for one-on-one discipleship, small group, or large group settings.
In this guide, author Jeff Dodge draws insight from Paul’s letter to Titus to point men and women to God’s blueprint for what he wants the church to look like. He invites readers to see how the gospel disrupts people and culture, turning the world upside-down—or right side-up.
This small group resource offers biblically wise, theologically rich content with an easy-to-follow structure to engage readers. With insightful questions and Scripture-based teaching, Dodge helps men and women see Jesus more clearly in the themes found in the book of Titus.
Explore this resource and find life-changing truths about the gospel and the heart of God, who desires for the truth to set us free.

“This study brings together two amazing resources: the book of Titus and the voice of Jeff Dodge. As one of the New Testament pastoral epistles, the book of Titus is chock-full of practical wisdom for walking with Jesus in a contrary culture. And as a seasoned pastor and Bible scholar, Jeff Dodge can help us hear the wisdom of Titus in a way that resonates with real life. Students young and old will benefit from this work.”
Bob Thune, Pastor, Coram Deo Church, Ohmah, NE; author of Gospel Eldership
“Titus is one of the most potent but often overlooked books in the New Testament. In this helpful resource, Jeff Dodge admirably brings Titus’s message to bear for contemporary believers. I’m thankful for this resource, and to my friend Jeff Dodge for writing it.”
Jason K. Allen, President, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Spurgeon College
“If you ever spend any time with Jeff Dodge, you will notice within five minutes that he exudes gospel clarity, missional gravity, and Christian joy. That combination comes through in this book, as he guides the reader through the riches of Paul’s letter to Titus. This book shows how similar our world is to that faced by Paul and Titus, and then applies the triumphant power of that letter. You will be strengthened and equipped by this book.”
Russell Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
“I can think of few pastors who could reflect the depth and beauty of Paul’s pastoral wisdom in his letter to Titus better than Jeff Dodge. With a shepherd’s care and a teacher’s insight, Dodge excavates fresh, helpful, and clarifying riches from this important epistle that are sure to strengthen your heart and your walk with Christ.”
Jared C. Wilson, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry at Spurgeon College; author of The Gospel-Driven Church
“In the tradition of masterly soul-care practitioners like Richard Sibbes, Jonathan Edwards, and D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, pastor-theologian Jeff Dodge has given us a very short study guide that is profoundly impactful. The sections ‘Jesus Is Enough’ and ‘Humility Is What We Do’ are two of the most insightful dissections of sin and application of the gospel I’ve ever encountered. The gospel laid out here packs thunder; it is not neat and tame. Jeff Dodge knows of what he writes. He has walked through the shadowlands with the Good Shepherd, and he has deep wisdom to offer us from the deep things of God.”
Owen Strachan, Associate Professor of Christian theology, Midwestern Seminary; author, Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind and Always in God’s Hands: Day by Day in the Company of Jonathan Edwards
"Nothing is more vital to our intimacy with Christ than spending time with him in his Word. But a lot of Bible studies stop short and only deal with concepts and ideas and never really speak to our hearts. That's why I'm so excited about this series. Each author writes about the unique gospel insights he or she has gained from Scripture and has created a small group study that will help people actually encounter Christ and be changed by the power of his grace. God has used this material powerfully in my life, marriage, and ministry, and that is my prayer for you as well."
