What does is mean to be Christian? Curiously, the term is never used in Scripture. Instead, Christian was a label used by outsiders to define Jesus followers. Jesus referenced disciple as the key word he used to describe his supporters along with the fact that they would be known for their love a novel concept for their time and ours today.
Through eight engaging and enlightening sessions, Andy Stanley unpacks these qualities Jesus prescribes for his followers that made them unique. What if believers today embodied these traits? Would the non-believing world put aside its definition of Christian and instead know us by our love?

Pat5 Stars Out Of 5CHRISTIAN "It's Not What You Think"February 17, 2018PatQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0We are a church plant in the Atlanta GA area and we used this study for our life groups. It was amazing, so practical and thought provoking. I recommend its' use for small study groups.
lollipop5 Stars Out Of 5Thought provoking for anyone interested in Spiritual mattersNovember 26, 2014lollipopQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We are presently using this 8 part DVD series with the parents of our Club DJ kids. The idea was to provide an opportunity to explore spiritual matters with a group of "non churched" adults. It took some time to earn their trust first and encourage them to come on into our church building not just to drop off their children but to stay awhile. With coffee and snack in hand they slowly decided to explore this opportunity.
The cool thing is that they really appreciate Andy Stanley's style, humor and content. Lots of questions and discussion and a wonderful time of getting to know one another.
We also showed the introduction to our regular Sunday attenders and they were also very keen to see more and because we are presently out of a pastor, it has been suggested to run this series as "pulpit supply".
