My book “What’s so amazing about Scripture?” will help individuals, but I have created resources that also enable us to experience it together in small groups.
Here is the Video Group Guide for those working through the 30 videos together.
Here is the Book Group Guide for those who all have a copy of the book.
Why work through the book with others in a group?
Small Groups help us to take the What’s So Amazing About Scripture? content to the next level of impact in our lives in two ways:
1. Going through the journey with a group will multiply our growth and learning.
Attempting to verbally share with others what we are discovering, wondering about and trying to implement has a way of deepening our discoveries, curiosity and implementation. Also, hearing what others are learning, asking and doing enriches our own. Or as Scripture puts it: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour.” (Eccl 4:9)
This is especially true when it comes to speaking the truth to each other in the context of caring relationships: “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” (Eph 4:14-15)
2. Going through the journey with a group will provide the accountability, encouragement and support to keep going till the end.
On our own we more easily quit or lose energy in the journey somewhere along the way. Think of how much easier it is to get into an exercise habit, such as running, if you have a running group or partner. “Two are better than one, because … if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” (Eccl 4:10-11)
