This was purchased for a small group discussion of families with younger children. This guide has been insightful, but not overly taxing for busy people with families. Our group is covering a chapter each week, and have found it to be a great launching point for deeper questions. No one has been overwhelmed or discouraged by the amount of "homework" (which has been an issue in the past). It has been helpful that the scripture is included in the book, so that everyone can read the same version )although we all tend to read our own version as well). This has also helped spark discussions between versions, as we have been more cognisant of slight changes in the meanings between versions.
Great for getting into the Word, especially for small groups.
MacArthur remains the premier Bible study for groups. His notes are exhaustive, and his scholarship is impeccable. This is the third of his Bible studies my group has pursued, and we doubtlessly in the future will chose others as well.
