Reviews - What do customers think about Tough Questions Leaders Guide (Revised)?
This small book contains material that can change lives Aug 25, 2009
I purchased this book to do a study, with college age kids, of the book by Garry Poole called, "Don't All Religions Lead to God?". You can read my review of that book for more details. In short, the response to the discussion group was unbelievable. The "Tough Questions Series" does just that - it ask plain, tough questions. The kind that we think in our head but typically aren't comfortable with putting out there on the table. He isn't scared to challenge the traditional Christian beliefs because he knows that those beliefs can be backed up with scripture. He also used logic and sound reasoning to make his points, all the while not shoving anything down anyone's throat. The kids, who spanned a rather large range of religious beliefs, appreciated the ability to voice their opinions in a safe environment and the there was NOT a shortage of opinion or discussion! Garry Poole has done an incredible job with his "Tough Question Series". The kids didn't want the discussion group to end; unfortunately summer was over and they had to go back to college. They are wanting to do another of the books at Christmas and also next summer. If that isn't a huge recommendation, I don't know what is. The amount of work required to lead a discussion group like this is surprisingly little. In fact, the main job of the facilitator is to know when to keep quiet, even when you don't agree with what is being said at the time, and knowing when to speak up. Mr. Poole's book, "Seeker Small Groups" is an invaluable book to read to help prepare you to do a good job as a leader of these discussion groups.
