Materials/Study Formats

Effective May 1, 2015 the Institute of Biblical Education will no longer be in operation. New orders are no longer available. We want to help you get the most out of your IBE studies as the ministry of IBE comes to a close and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have. You may contact our office by phone at (888) 253-9833 or by email if there is anything that we can do to help.


We supply you with all the materials for each unit of study. Video materials are provided on a 6-month rental basis, but you get to keep all study guides.

The optional textbook for each course is listed in the course profiles. The BJU Campus Store offers optional textbooks. You can also order BJU Press books directly from the Press.

No materials are required for IBE online courses.

Study Formats

Group study

Get special group rates if you have 3 or more participants. The course comes with a leader’s guide that gives instructions to your group leader on how to conduct group sessions, track group progress and report it to IBE. This guide is also packed with a variety of application and discussion ideas.

Possibilities for IBE group use include the following:

  • Adult Sunday school classes
  • Bible Institute courses
  • Discipleship ministries
  • Informal Bible studies
  • Training-hour programs

Individual study

If CEUs are desired, study at home and submit each unit upon completion to the IBE office for review.
