Publ: Carpenters Son Publ. c. 2014
Are you looking for a Bible study that will increase your faith and leave you more grounded. This study of the Greatest Story Ever Told will definitely meet your needs. Looking at Peters response to the cocks crows after he has denied Jesus, you are taken on a search for where your faith is and where you want it to be.
Having led various Bible studies I can say that this is one of the best laid out leaders guides that I have seen. The information is readily available, but there are choices to fit the group with which you are working. The resources offered are in a variety of forms to spark the interest and discussion in a wide range of group settings.
After comparing the leaders guide to the actual study guide I was impressed with the flow between the two.
If you are looking for a compelling Bible study with a leaders guide to help you each step of the way I suggest that you look closely at this one. And as is often the case, the one leading the group will definitely get the most out of the study group.

I would definitely recommend these two books as a set the book itself is a fabulous journey for anyone who wants a better understanding of the bible. It also is a great affirmation and guide for a reader to work toward a place in their faith where they are ready for whatever God has planned. There are scripture references to support the authors commentary which is plainly stated in a way that makes you feel like you are having a discussion with him, instead of just listening to a lecture. The end of each chapter has bible verses to help prepare the reader for the next chapter.
The Leaders Guide is a wonderful tool to help anyone lead a group through this book and the personal journey it will take you on. It has great tools, starting with advice on how to set up your group and the sessions needed. He also gives you suggestions on how to group the chapters together to shorten the amount of time it takes to get through the entire study.
Each chapter parallels the same chapter in A Rooster Once Crowed and gives ideas for questions to lead the discussions. I liked the Building Blocks that can help the leader set up the next session. The author also includes a summary of the main idea of the chapter and a prayer. The additional resources can help the leader personalize the sessions to make it their own.
Someone could just read A Rooster Once Crowed without this guide, but I highly recommend using the Leaders Guide, even if you are studying it on your own.
This author must have spent a great deal of time putting this project together with a lot of thought and planning. What a journey Lets spread the word!
I received both these books from BookFun.org and the author in exchange for my honest review.

Bryant Cornett has a sincere desire that "A Rooster Once Crowed" will be an accurate portrayal, a true representation of the Gospel in story. The book unlocks the key message of the "greatest story ever told," the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, God's Son.
Thought provoking passages, personal observations, examples, and simple and profound questions encourage the reader to consider those basics tenets of the faith so often misunderstood or misinterpreted.
The additional suggested readings from the Scriptures at the end of each chapter in the "before you go on section" provide helpful passages for "investigative study" or for reflection and contemplation. They re-enforce the material in the chapter to follow. A complete scripture index and reference notes are provided for further reference.
"A Rooster Once Crowed" is offered as a sacrifice of love with the prayer that the reader will catch a glimmer of the magnitude of God's love by sending His Son to earth to become the sacrifice for our sins.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

"A Rooster Once Crowed" takes a hard look at scripture from Genesis to Revelation and shows us how this story is still relevant to out lives even in our modern times.

An unusual title with a profound story. Bryant Cornett is an expert story teller. A detailed researcher, and a phenomenal teacher. I am impressed with the way Bryant applies the historical background of the word of God to fit so naturally into our present time. This book served as a bible study for me as I reviewed its content. Each thought is backed up with scripture and the contents are accurately prÃ©cis. Bookfun.org placed this book in my hands to review freely, my life has been enriched for having such a teacher as this author dissect some complex verses with such clarity.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm the last guy that should have written this book. I'm just a guy. I grew up in Texas. I run a business and have a family. I grew up in the church, and might have mumbled that I believed, but in 34 years, I'd never made a decision based on the cross. I did the right thing, but that's how you get ahead in the long game. I'm like the reverse of the hitting rock bottom story. Someone once said, "If God wants to play a really cruel trick on you, He'll give you everything you wanted." I got that and I still wanted more. Taking the time to stop and realize that was the beginning of my awakening.
What was your motivation behind this project? I didn't set out to write a book; I was just willing to be humiliated. When I came to Jesus, I began to study earnestly. For hours, I'd pour over books and the Bible to better know this One to whom I'd set my heart. I was like a lake with streams of wisdom pouring in, but no outlets. So I started leading small groups and Sunday school classes. I joined CLC (Christian Leadership Concepts a program for men to become disciples), and I got known for leading a good lesson, but I had a programa beginning, middle, and end. I got a nudge to leave a little more room for the Spirit to move within the classes, so for the first time, in October 2012, I planned to stand before the biggest class I knew (my peers) and lead without a single note. I had an idea how it would look, but GOD had another idea. I was beginning to get nervous about it as the Sunday approached, but that Thursday night, I got a view of the Gospel as one cohesive story. It was as clear as a painting and on that Sunday in October, I just explained what I saw. I recorded the lesson for some friends that were out of town because I knew it was something special. With no flash or video or even a website, just passing the link around, that lesson has been downloaded over 8,000 times4,000 times within the first couple of weeks in 53 countries. This is getting long, so I'll just say that over the months after that, I realized that I wanted to have this conversationto tell this storyto everyone, and that a book, this book, was the way to do that.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I have a real heart for moving the Gospel into the conversation. Im working through something now about Oklahoma. When a tornado whips through there or a flood destroys New Orleans or a church gets bombed in India, at my best, I might take a moment and pray for the folks down there. Three or four times that day Ill think, What a shame that they have to go through that. Children die, businesses ruined and lives torn apart, but I very rarely will I cry over such destruction. Do you know why? Because I dont know them. I have empathy for them, but it doesnt break me because I dont have a relationship with the folks that were ravaged there. If half that happened to my friend or child or wife, I would be torn apart. Well, great men and women can read Mark 15 and feel exactly like I felt for Oklahoma or New Orleans or Indian Christians. Thats not right because if we have a relationship with Jesus, then that story should affect us. I want every Christian to pull the cross deeper into their heart and look at it as an overwhelming gesture of lovea pivotal event in their own livesaround which they will bend every decision going forward. I want A Rooster Once Crowed to bring the Gospel back into every conversation.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love Mark because he loved Peterand still put in all those crazy things about him. I love Moses because he had the guts to share what God told him about Creation. I love Tozer in Pursuit of God because he wrote it on his knees and couldnt not share the greatness of the pursuit. I love Eric Metaxas because he lives in the lions den and keeps raising his voice. I love C. S. Lewis because he showed me how to look at the back of the diamond that is the Gospel in The Great Divorce and The Screwtape Letters. But of all them, Im only jealous of C. S. Lewis because God made him so good he didnt have to edit.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I would love to hear from you on how this material connects with you. You'll wrestle with it. I wrestled with it. If you'd like to hear the lesson heard around the world, it's up on the Full Porch Press website along with a video that I know you'll love. I'm on Facebook (username: wbryantcornett) and twitter (@FullPorchPress), too. If you'll send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll include you on the mailing list for updates, giveaways and opportunities to move the Gospel back into the conversation. Thanks for listening.
