Once our group selects a Bible study, we take our time, using as many weeks as needed to get thru a chapter, even though all of us have read and studied the Bible for a long time. One comment that caught our attention prior to our decision to purchase The Purple Book was that new and long-time believers could get something out of it. Well, we spent our whole first session on just the intro page of Chapter 1 -- the page with no questions! Our next session was spent on just Lesson 1 in Chapter 1 -- another 2 pages. If this keeps up, it will take us a year to finish all 12 chapters of The Purple Book! So yes, both ends of the spectrum can get something out of it -- those who just completed Alpha and those who are well established in their faith.
Using the book as a group Bible Study. Great for all levels , provoking great discussion. and in these days and times we felt the need to make sure our foundation is solid. Making this book the perfect tool.
i love this foundational book because it is simply put together with lots of scripture references. i give this away to new & old believers because we all need a good foundation to build our christian house on so that when the storms of life rage we will be able to stand firm on a good foundation build on the Rock, Jesus the Christ.
