terrific foundational bible study Feb 8, 2008
my husband and i have done this study and led it several times...it is a great one to use in teaching the basic truths of scripture. Outstanding!
Getting Back to the Basics... Jul 13, 2006
This book is an awesome review for "old" Christians and an excellent start book for "new" Christians. The devotional focuses on how to study the Bible, have quiet times, and memorize Scripture. I have been a Christian for many years and learned something new from this book in every chapter. I can't wait to go on in the series! You won't regret buying this book!
The best in a discipleship course Mar 30, 2006
A great discipleship course in the basics. I took this course myself in 1987 and after that took the leadership training and co-led the course at my church. Currently (2006), I am a volunteer at the local Center for Women's Ministry where I facilitated the class again. From what I've seen, it's the best training out there for a Christian, whether new or old.
Excellent for Both One on One & Small Group Discipleship Sep 20, 2002
This is ideal material to use for either one on one discipleship (training) or for a small group. The material is simple and clear to understand, but requires committment of all involved. There are verses to memorize (only 5 over a ten week period), and Bible studies to complete. The program helps to establish regular Bible reading and a daily quiet time.
This material tackles the biggest issues of the Christian life, like assurance of salvation, Bible study, resisting temptation, prayer, witnessing, and fellowship.
This material should not be confused with a follow up course that teaches a few basics, but is for the believer who is wanting to seriously follow Jesus Christ. It is good stuff! As a pastor of 23 years, it is what I use.
Great Bible study help if you like structure Jun 26, 2001
I just completed this first book in the New 2:7 Series with a group of 10 men. The majority of us have been Christians for 5+ years and were looking for something to help us fill in the gaps left by our own self-directed Bible studies. I believe this book was beneficial for most of us, especially with respect to Scripture memory. Speaking from personal experience, Scripture memory has historically been a bear and a frustrating experience. However, the method utilized in the New 2:7 Series made it easier and actually fun. My only caution of this book is that it is very structured and for some people this may pose a major challenge. If you function well under structured Bible study though, this book would suit your Bible study group well in fostering in your spiritual growth whether you are a young or mature disciple of Jesus.
