A Life Worth Living, based on St. Paul's letter to the Philippians, is a practical and positive guide to achieving exactly this, uncovering in us a new heart, new purpose, new attitude, and a new confidence to the way we can live our lives joyfully. This book is especially written for those who are just starting out in the Christian life and is an ideal follow-up to the Alpha course.
Youth Alpha aims to help young people meet Jesus by looking at key aspects of the Christian faith in a fun, relaxed, and nonthreatening environment designed to draw others into a group where they are accepted and feel like they belong. Discussions are encouraged, but never forced, and no question is ever treated as stupid or irrelevant. The course runs over 8-10 weeks, including a day or weekend away.
The Jesus Lifestyle examines Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and the radical alternative it presents to the modern lifestyle. Each talk provides life application principles that individuals can apply to live the life that Jesus wants us to live. Some of the topics discussed are living and acting with integrity, dealing with criticism, handling conflict, and building a secure future.
