Excerpt, Product Closeup


Presenting a new small group study from City on a Hill Productions. Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus issued a compelling and challenging invitation to Follow Him. He’s not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants Completely Committed Followers. Based on the engaging approach of Kyle Idleman, this one-of-a-kind small group study examines what it means to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus.

This unconventional small group experience is a cinematic journey through a series of six mini-movies providing a unique perspective to help shape today’s believer into a first century Christ-follower. Follow the journey of Eric Nelson, a man leading a compartmentalized triple life as a pleasure-seeking rebel, a cutthroat corporate executive, and a nominal Christian. When confronted with a near death experience, Eric embarks on a spiritual journey that transforms his commitment to Jesus Christ and tests the faith of his friends and family.

Study Kit Includes:

  • Small Group Leader’s DVD Tutorial
  • Six 30-minute lessons of cinematic story telling
  • Easy-to-follow Leader’s Guide for facilitating your small group gathering
  • Thought provoking 42-day Follower’s Journal designed to assist you and your group in your journey

Excerpt


Life is hard. We pray and ask God to help, but many times it seems like he's not there. We know God can perform miracles, yet our problems often remain. Is God listening? Does God care?

In the four sessions of Keep Climbing, Todd Phillips leads a team to Russia to climb Mount Elbrus, the tallest mountain in Europe. Todd uses their perilous trek as a backdrop to explore how God works with us through the challenges in our lives.

Four video-driven sessions:
  • Session 1 - Leaving Comfort Behind (9 min.)
  • Session 2 - Flatten the Mountain (14 min.)
  • Session 3 - Climbing in Silence (10 min.)
  • Session 4 - A Better View (19 min.)


Includes a Leader's Guide (56 pages) and Workbook (44 pages), in addition to three Video-driven sermon illustrations:

Climbing Life's Mountains: From Mount Ararat, where God saved Noah and restarted civilization, to Mount Sinai, where God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, God has always used mountains to show himself to his people. This inspirational video illustration reminds us that we were meant to climb the mountains of life so that our faith can be made stronger, even through suffering.

Famous Failures: Sometimes we look at people who have achieved great success and think that everything must come easy for them. This powerful video illustration takes us inside some of the greatest failures of all time so we can find the true meaning of perseverance and success. If you've never failed, you've never lived.

You Can Change the World: This inspiring video illustration gives us a behind the scenes look at some of the most influential leaders of all time whose courage, tenacity, vision, and curiosity inspired a movement of lasting change. Will we choose to use our abilities and gifts to impact the world for the better?

Also featuring I AM SECOND interviews with: Brian Welch (founder of KoRn), Jason Witten (NFL Pro-Bowl Tight-End), and Michelle Aguilar (Winner of the Biggest Loser).

Excerpt


Study the lives of the only two women in the Old Testament who have entire books devoted to them. In spite of their differences, both Ruth and Esther were committed to do the will of God, and both summon Christians today to be committed to Jesus Christ and to do His will at any cost.

A companion to the Be series, these studies are designed for both individual and small-group use. The eight lessons reference Wiersbe's commentary Be Committed (WW768483). Study questions and personal life application questions guide you through the text and prompt life-changing decisions. A small group would need an hour to study together unless individuals prepare ahead.

Excerpt


If we truly believe Jesus Christ is not only the Son of God, but also our Savior and Lord, it is reasonable for others to expect to see proof of our commitment to Him in the way we live. The evidence is what biblically-minded Christians call discipleship.

"Discipleship is faith expressed in real life, every day, in every way," writes noted author and lifelong disciple John Koessler. But there is more to it than merely watching your language on the loading dock or dropping a few coins in a charity donation box.

In this companion guide to Koessler's contemplative and practical book, True Discipleship, you'll explore through in-depth study of Scripture passages important themes such as:

  • the marks and costs of discipleship
  • spiritual formation
  • obstacles to discipleship
  • holiness
  • Christian virtues
  • and many more
You'll find this guide invaluable for your personal Bible study...and you might find this study so revolutionary that you'll want to share it with fellow believers in a small group setting, too!

Excerpt


"Little needs to be said by way of introduction to this volume. The verses considered in it are generally agreed to be one of the sublimest portions of scripture.

In it the Apostle brings his argument concerning assurance of salvation to a grand climax. The way in which he advances surely from argument to argument, piling one upon another, is astonishing, and constitutes the supreme example of inspired logic. In doing so he brings us face to face with the fundamental theme of the Bible - God's plan and purpose of redemption conceived before time and the foundation of the world, and spanning the whole of human history from the original creation to the final glory.

What is perhaps most astonishing of all is that all this was done out of a primary pastoral concern, the Apostle's main object being to comfort and to help those early Christians in Rome who were enduring what he calls 'the sufferings of this present time'.

As is characteristic of all Paul's letters, doctrine and practical application are intertwined, reminding us that doctrine and theology should never be treated in isolation or regarded as an academic subject. The only comfort and consolation the Apostle has to offer his readers is based on doctrine. Every step and detail matters, and is of crucial importance in the development of the grand argument. To set the details and the broad principles in opposition is a sign of failure to understand the Apostle's method.

It is only as we follow him 'with the eyes of our own understanding being enlightened' that we shall be able to understand, and to be 'more than conquerors' face to face with the sufferings of our own times. God grant that these expositions may help many in that respect!"---from the author's Preface.

Excerpt


Best-selling author Warren Wiersbe unwraps the book of Nehemiah in his study Be Determined to show a servant so selfless, a mission so humbling, and a perseverance so admirable that Christians are drawn to a new awe of God. As the leader God calls to mobilize and equip His people to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, Nehemiah was a man who didn't know the word no when it came to God's economy.

God strategically summons the man of Jewish descent from his comfortable high position as Artexerxes' cupbearer at the palace in Persia to the difficult role as leader of the Jewish remnant. To this remnant of his own people, Nehemiah is called to empathize and share God's plan for their physical, emotional, and spiritual reconstruction. If open to it, readers will hear the Holy Spirit's direction in their own lives, and will surrender themselves to the God who equips them to do all things through His infinite strength.
