Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel according to The Simpsons: Leader's Guide for Group Study?

good discussion starter  Nov 9, 2006
This is a great discussion starter in a small group or youth group setting. A great way to present to talk about God, the Bible, Heaven and Hell, etc...
Yay!  Aug 29, 2003
This was a VERY good book for any small group. Yay for Pastor Skip! :D
Excellent Book!  Jul 16, 2003
We started using the Gospel According to the Simpsons with our High School youth group and the response has been awesome. The episodes and questions provide an excellent way to engage the kids in discussions. I highly recommend using this series - although I also recommend sending home a letter to parents explaining what you're doing with the series.
A fascinating course for a church  Nov 1, 2002
We have been teaching this course at our Episcopal church to an intergenerational group of about 25-30 ranging in ages from 10-77. This is a wonderful course and even if you aren't a Simpsons fan, the series really is an eye-opener.

The only small bone to pick is that they use some (two)episodes for viewing that are unavailable via tape or DVD and this requires you to tape it off of TV when it airs, if you know when that is. Also some of the videos are out of print, so E-bay was a big help.

But the response to the course has been tremendous. People are really amazed that a "wicked, evil" cartoon can be so enlightening! I would recommend this for any church considering it.

amusing look at contemporary theology  Oct 16, 2002
this companion volume is a helpful addition to the original book. The videos are difficult to find but worth the effort.
