Synopses & Reviews
I SAMUEL. Things don’t look good for Israel. Military attacks threaten from without, and moral corruption destroys from within. But God, in His Grace, will use three men to guide Israel through these crises into the next stage of His plan. Samuel, the prophet who directs Israel’s transition from judgeship to monarchy; Saul, the first king, who epitomizes what God doesn’t want in a leader; and David, the man after God’s own heart. These men remain perfect examples of godliness-and half-hearted commitment-for Christians today. LifeChange Series: Christians have a lifelong goal: to become like Christ. This involves change, and change isn’t always easy. But the more you know of God’s purposes for you, the more you can experience His joy and participate in His plan. The LifeChange Series of Bible studies on books of the Bible can help you grow in Christlikeness through a life-changing encounter with God’s Word. You’ll benefit in these important ways: 1) You’ll gain a firm understanding of the book-its historical context, purpose, structure, and meaning; 2) You’ll apply its powerful, relevant wisdom to needs and issues you are currently working through; and 3) You’ll acquire personal study skills and a thirst to return to the book on your own-so you can keep going deeper into its life-transforming truths.
LIFECHANGE Bible studies allow the Bible to speak for itself. You'll see for yourself what it says (not what someone else thinks it says) and develop the skills and desire to dig even deeper into God's Word.
A new approach to small-group ministry that meets people's needs in the post-Christian era.
Many churches still take a modern approach to small-group life, but the truth is that we now live in a post-Christian era. Society’s definitions for family, spirituality, and even truth are different than they were just ten years ago.
Because these changes affect the people in your church, you need a different perspective for small-group ministry. In A Different Kind of Tribe, author and small-groups expert Rick Howerton explains what has changed, offers a new approach, and equips you to succeed.
You will discover:
• What leadership traits the new small-group leader must have
• How to start groups that are more about making disciples than assimilating people into church life
• Why it’s important for groups to live a missional mindset
• What holds small-group members captive and how to set them free
• How to use the “four quadrants” of small-group life to create a transformational small group
Change is already here. But by understanding this new paradigm, you’ll be prepared to better serve group members now and in the future.
