Q: Difference in participants guide and softcover book? Becoming a Contagious Christian offers a participants guide and a soft cover book what is the difference? if doing this for a small group study which one do I order mulitiples of guide or book?
The softcover book presents the foundational principles and structure for Becoming a Contagious Christian. It is recommended, but not necessary to complete the course. The Participant's Guide provides an outline and study worksheets to accompany the DVD course. Each course participant should have one.
Q: on the "becoming a contagious christian" DVD curriculumn, how many minutes long are the dvd sessions on the 6 week study I know your description said they are 50 minute sessions, but is that including both the DVD instruction and the question answer small group discussion....or is that just the dvd viewing time ? Thanks Mark
The 50 minutes includes discussion time. It is recommended to reserve up to 60 minutes, so that you do not have to move at such a brisk time.
The DVD time for each lesson will vary from 30-40 minutes.
