Through this study our women are realizing how little we do think of God throughout the day. It has opened our eyes to His Presence and how close He is. John's teachings with his visuals and stories make the lesson more memorable. We are using the study guide as homework material...not just doing it in our session. Great discussions. The actual videos are distracting with the people's faces in view but the study guide is great.
We are not using the book, however, just the video and guide.
This may be great for seekers, new Christians or those who like light reading. I found it filled with stories that take up much space but do not 'move' the content of the chapters along. However, when the book is used along with the study guide and the DVD material in a small group Bible study the book gets supplemented. In other words, there is a significant investment in other resources which are extraneous to the book. Hence my low level rating for the book.
