Reviews - What do customers think about Discovering The Church (Walking With God)?
A Bible-based guide to coming together to serve together. Sep 2, 1998
This book is book four in the "Walking with God" series of group studies. The series focuses on what the Bible has to say about friendship with God, and its implications in your life and your world. Rather than studying the Bible for itself, the series uses the Bible to help small groups and their members study themselves and their relationships with God. The series is non-denominational, and we have used it in a Roman Catholic setting.
This book addresses the Biblical concepts of church. As in the other books of the series, the emphasis is on Christ, what it means to live as a Christian. Old and New Testament alike are used to explore and expand concepts of church, service, the role of individual believers, and as part of the body of Christ. The book is change and action oriented rather than intellectual or simply insprational.
Readings, questions, a few exercises, and memory verses form the elements of each of the 12 studies or chapters. Each could be covered in a single evening, although our group frequently finds it profitable to extend a study over two or more evenings.
The accompanying leader's guide (number two, ISBN 0-310-59213-5) covers this and books five and six of the series. The study guide not only amplifies each study, but contains very practical useful information on small group studies.
This is very rich material and desrves serious consideration by groups seeking to change thier lives, moving deeper into the real meaning of the Christian life.
