About Standard Lesson

Using the best-selling commentary—a Sunday school class or Bible study group will be ready to explore the Scripture text in a way that meets the needs of all kinds of learning styles. Available in both the Standard Lesson Commentary ® (annual) and the Standard Lesson Quarterly® (quarterly) formats.

The Standard Lesson line covers four 13-week topical studies each year. These are built around themes created within the ISSL/Uniform Series. The International Sunday School Lessons (ISSL)/Uniform Series is a 6-year plan for reading and studying the entire Bible.
