Reviews - What do customers think about Short Term Disciple Bible Study Invitation to the New Testament - Leader Guide (Disciple Short Term Studies)?

Invitation to the New Testament  Feb 2, 2006
I liked "Invitation to the Old Testament." I was disappointed that "Invitation to the New Testament" and the accompanying video were not of the same caliber.

The producers of the video may have been trying to emulate the roundtable discussions featured on "Washington Week in review." Unfortunately, they were not successful. I noticed dizzying camera movements and not much content.

The participant book uses phrases like, "paradigmatic" and "overstepping deeply entrenched boundaries between people, persevering in the face of hostility, or embodying a new set of values that elevates servanthood above self promotion." What is this supposed to mean? The book is designed as a Bible study. It is not a theology or seminary text. Why use such big words as "paradigmatic"?

While the conflicts in the book of Galatians are discussed at length, we are never encouraged to read some of the most famous chapters in the Bible such as First Corinthians 12, 13, and 14. First Corinthians 5 is assigned twice. Why?

There is some great material in the New Testament. It is a pity to make the material sound trivial or boring.
