In his eight-session small group bible study, Christian, by Andy Stanley, you'll examine the characteristics Jesus used to define those who follow him and the implications they have for believers today. According to Andy Stanley, the words used to describe Christians today often bear no resemblance to what Jesus wanted his followers to be known for. In Christian, you'll learn: - What one word should be descriptive of every Christian - How Jesus' followers should treat those who are outside the faith - Why people love Jesus but can't stand his followers What does is mean to be Christian? Curiously, the term is never used in Scripture. Instead, Christian was a label used by outsiders to define Jesus' followers. Jesus referenced 'disciple' as the key word he used to describe his supporters along with the fact that they would be known for their love -- a novel concept for their time -- and ours today. Through eight engaging and enlightening small group bible study sessions, Andy Stanley unpacks these qualities Jesus prescribes for his followers that made them unique. What if believers today embodied these traits? Would the non-believing world put aside its definition of 'Christian' and instead know us by our love? This pack contains one DVD and one Participant's Guide which includes discussion questions for individuals and groups, between session devotions, DVD session overviews, and a helpful leader's guide. When used together, they provide you with a practical tool that can help grow your faith. Sessions include: 1. Brand Recognition 2. Quitters3. Insiders, Outsiders4. Showing Up5. When Gracie Met Truthy6. Angry Birds7. Loopholes8. Working It Out
