Reviews - What do our customers think?
Solid Small Group Material  Mar 25, 2007
This is a great first book for small groups. It reveals the important elememts of relationships and sets the stage for some good self examination coupled with the truth of Scripture. The leader notes and questions also make leading the group a snap. The study portion takes about 1 full hour each week.
Director, Small Group Ministry  Mar 8, 2007
This is the first curriculum chosen for our 350 member church's launching of 'small groups'. We used it in advance to train the Leaders and each Leader is now using it to kick off his or her own small group. It has been profoundly useful and inspirational. Each participant gets this book for study and note-taking. The Scripture content is exactly what the 'small group' movement requires as a Bible study component.
Groups - the Life-Giving Power of Community  Nov 10, 2006
This was a very good Bible Study for our group.
Good resource and guide  Jan 14, 2003
This book is a good tool to use for small groups, fellowship studies, or sunday school class. I used it for my college sunday school class to place emphasis on embracing our Christian community. While John Ortberg does a good job at painting the picture for us, it is basically his "The Life You've Always Wanted" book re-done for small groups in a practical way. I enjoyed using this guide but had to restructure the questions and format to cater to a sunday school environment. I would recommend making sure you know your group, and understand their needs, and perhaps come up with additional questions to meet the needs of your group.
