We have done a study by Max Lucado already and really liked it. We just started this one and it has already generated great discussions and insights. We look forward to more of the same in the final chapters. The only negative I find as the leader is that the CD segments are so short. The leaders guide I downloaded from the CD-ROM is very helpfull and complete.
Our small group is in the middle of the third chapter. It gives you a lot of food for thought. It is a great study. We have the cd that goes along with the book. It is a great book for a new small group.
After reading Max Lucado's book, I knew in my spirit that God was calling out to His children through this. Our small group is on a journey to know our Father's love in a new & fresh way. Parallel reading includes "The Shack", by William P. Young.
