Product Description

Explore the writings of the New Testament using the story of Jesus as the starting point. This survey of the testament looks at how the early church took ownership of and was shaped by the story of Jesus and how the church learned how to develop as disciples and create communities of faith.

In the weekly video segments, listen as scholars fascinate you with facts and information that opens new understanding and enlightenment for your group. In the second video, sit in on a table conversation between guest scholars and debate key issues in the text. 8 sessions.

    First use of CB and all has not gone well. I ordered 20 participant books for Invitation to The NT and they did not arrive when rep said they would. Subsequent follow-up call revealed that the books were not even released by the publisher and would not be available until mid-October. My much promoted and publicized course offering has suffered by my attempt to substitute for the lack of the participants not having the guide. As a result, I am leary of depending on your system to deliver accurate information and deliver the material in a timely manner.

    This kit provided DVD, Leader & Participant workbooks. Having both made it clear that this was the resource to use with my Bible Study group. Easy to use and comprehensive in scope.
