I read the book and went through the journal in 2012 when I first gave my life to Jesus. It was life changing!!! The book by itself is great but going through it with the journal was dynamite! I think EVERYONE that calls themselves a Christian should go through this, no matter how new or seasoned a Christian they are. Please take the time to commit to all of the journal entries!!! You will not be sorry!
I had purchased this for my small group study at church which I facilitate. Most of the people in the group didn't use their journal due to not having the time to sit down at least three times a day to answer the questions and do the exercises. The few who did, reported that it was very powerful. I feel that this journal would work in a group study where you have at least an hour and a half per week (we had an hour) to go over everything in the study. To keep people on task, they shouldn't miss any sessions. I will be trying this small group study again soon and will rewrite my review if anything changes.
This journal is a thought provoking 42 day option that follows along with the rest of the Not a Fan material. I am using it in a small group study of 15. It has helped to initiate additional conversation and challenge to an already awesome study experience. I would highly recommend this journal.
