This Participant's Guide will help you and your fellow group members sift through controversial and relevant issues that surround the Christian faith and many of its competing worldviews. Volume 1 guides you through four sessions concerning Faith and Jesus. Each session includes two video segments from the corresponding DVD (sold separately) in which leading Christian and non-Christian voices engage in forceful but fair debate. You and your group will consider what you've heard and discuss challenging questions, such as:
Are miracles merely a product of wishful thinking?
Is the divinity of Jesus simply an idea that evolved over time?
Do historical facts support the belief that Jesus rose literally from the dead?
In the face of Jesus' exclusive claims, how confident are you that all roads lead to God?
