Reviews - What do customers think about Small Group Idea Book: Resources to Enrich Community, Worship, Prayer, Bible Study, Outreach?

Not a lot of help to me  Jun 9, 2008
I read through this book with great interest, since our church small group (made up of 20-30 year old "young career age" people) was looking for some new ideas for our weekly small group meetings. However, I didn't find many in this book at all.

The ideas are mostly very short; both in substance (length of the description) and duration (the time it would take to carry them out). Many are obvious ("Go out for dinner"), a LOT are very touchy-feely/sharing type of activities ("Everyone takes turns sharing something they feel is unique about themselves") and theres a few that are, IMHO, a bit strange ("Do laundry together.")

This book wasn't helpful for our small group. If you're starting a new small group and have few if any ideas of what to do, then this book would probably be helpful. Or if your group really enjoys sharing and talking with each other, then there are probably some new topics to discuss here. Otherwise, I would not recommend it.
Interesting and Useful Ideas  May 8, 2008
This book contains some interesting and useful ideas for leading small groups. I will be applying some of the ideas to the small church group that I lead.
