This reference was so much more than I expected. I have been in another small group that used this book and I thouroughly enjoyed it. This is why I purchased this one and an additional title for use with my small. group.
I was expecting a whole lot more from this study guide. There is very little information in this book concerning each parable. I felt the material did not point to Christ the way that I felt any Bible study should. I felt it was very man-centered. I would not recommend this product.
Not for Sunday School presentations, this study guide introduces the stories that Jesus told about the Kingdom of God with a personal application, then leads deep discussion with clear questions. A bonus section helps leaders keep a group discussion on track. This study will help readers identify with the disciples of Jesus through phases of astonishment, bewilderment, and understanding.
