Terrific resource Mar 18, 2007
If you lead any kind of small group or class, then this book is a terrific resource. Even if you don't write your own questions, this will help you to evaluate your curriculum/guide questions, as well as to lead discussions.
Ever wondered How to Word the Question ? Oct 4, 2000
Karen Lee Thorp has written a very comprehensive guide that is invaluable in understanding techniques for writing Small Group questions. Included are Top Ten principles for Asking Great Questions. Karen helps the reader understand the difference between questions that build relationships between people and questions that analyze a passage from the Bible. I particularly like the examples of each style of questions that are given. She provides a good base to work from when having to write your own questions. This is an excellant training tool for coaches. Useful in Small Group leading, teaching a Sunday School class, any interactive learning environment or chairing a group or committee that makes decisions. The table of contents is particularly well set out so it is very clear when you want to investigate the topic you are looking for. I use this book every week as a reference when writing quetions and I use it regularly in training and teaching others. It is the most useful tool I have in my Small Group resources. Karen has given me understanding of how to draw out opinions, feelings and assumptions. Helping people come into a time of discovery for themselves rather than being told by others. I highly reccommend this book.
