Reviews - What do customers think about Acts (Life App Bible Studies-NLT)?
Rubber Meets the Road in this Study of Acts Feb 4, 2009
Bible study guides are hard to choose, so I'm going to try to give a general idea of the type of group that this guide is for. I rate it five stars for the appropriate audience, which is Christian laymen who are ready to ask some of the tough questions about becoming more effective and authentic in their church ministry and witness.
The high points of design are the NLT text and Life Application Study Bible notes that are included. Most study group members in my experience want to use their own Bible, and that's probably good, but it's also valuable to have a standard fallback, and for the purposes for which this guide is designed, it would be hard to make a better choice.
The lesson suggestions are good. Experienced small group leaders may vary them. If you're new, you will do well to pay close attention.
The questions are excellent. They start factual (what happened), and impersonal (to those people back then) and they escalate to people in the current experience of the students, and finally point directly at the students. They are both thought and action oriented. How can YOU apply this. The advanced questions provided with each lesson are also useful, but unless you have an unusually large amount of time available, you won't get there. (Stick with the suggested times if you want your Bible study group to thrive.)
If your group is more into theology and exegesis, this may not be the book for you. It is a rubber-meets-the-road, personal, action-oriented study guide. It might serve well for a church wide study for a church that wants to move into a new phase of ministry and growth.
