Wonderful book!! Sep 9, 2008
If you have never studied a Jim Moore book this one I highly recommend. I teach Sunday School at my church and we were hesitant to try such a long book, but when it was over the whole class wished there were more lessons. Jim is a great writer and pastored one of the biggest churches in houston for 20 years. He is a wonderful story-teller and relates those stories back to the bible and relates them to our lives as Christians. The best thing about Jim's studies is they don't build on each other from week to week, so if you miss a week you aren't lost the next week. They are individual lessons which make it easy for classes who have sporadic attendance.
Great for Adult Sunday School Class Jun 17, 2007
We have been studying this book in our Adult Sunday School class, and it is great. Each chapter is engaging and easy to read. James Moore uses colorful stories and examples to illustrate his points. This book really helps you think about the things that are important in life.
This is a great book for a bible study class. There is a list of suggested group discussion questions, group activity, and a closing prayer for each chapter located at the back of the book, which makes it easy for the teacher to prep for class. Our group has really enjoyed this, and we have learned a lot about each other in the process. In addition, for the class members that do not read the chapter before they come to class (or visitors), they can still actively participate due to the types of questions and topics.
