Captured live and unscripted, watch candid conversations with real people that address the most common protests leveled against the Christian faith. This discussion guide and DVD video package will help you learn how to dialogue with those who share common doubts and objections to Christianity.
In his New York Times bestselling book, The Reason for God, Timothy Keller established himself as a modern-day C. S. Lewis who brings together faith and intellect, theology and popular culture, modern-day objections and historic Christian beliefs. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller explores the truth and challenge of Christianity in this six-session small group conversation starter.
In the video sessions, Timothy Keller and six panelists hold candid and unscripted discussions about the broad scope of their discomforts with God, the Bible, and Christianity in general:
- Discussion 1: Is the Bible a myth? Has science disproved Christianity?
- Discussion 2: Is there only one way to God? Are other religions as valid?
- Discussion 3: Clashes with Christian morality and ethics why are there so many rules?
- Discussion 4: Why would God allow suffering and evil.
- Discussion 5: Injustice and hypocrisy in the church.
- Discussion 6: Objections to God's wrath and judgement.
The Reason for God small group Bible study can be used individually or in a group setting by anyone engaging with friends who don't share his or her beliefs. For each video discussion, the study guide includes:
- An opening thought on the topic.
- A summary of the objection to the topic.
- Related Bible verses.
- Space for notetaking.
- Questions for group discussion.
You and your group will be challenged to wrestle with your friends' and neighbors' hardest questions and engage those questions in ways that will spark honest, enriching, and humbling dialogue.
This pack contains one guide and one DVD.
Ask a Question▼▲
Q: Can this DVD be used with teens? In other words, would a youth pastor/volunteer, have success in using this with 14 or 16 year-olds? Would average teens understand this DVD and connect with it, or would they most likely find it boring and irrelevant?
Some teens will find this study fascinating, others will find it less than exciting. A great way to test the group would be to ask a couple of questions and see what happens.
If you ask "Why does God allow evil in the world", and no one seems interested, this is not the study for your group.
If it launches into a huge discussion, this study will help guide the discussion and give some resources to work with.
If possible, you may want to have someone who has experience with this kind of material leading the discussion. For a person with limited subject knowledge to lead it, there may be more confusion than clarification to younger minds who may not have their foundation in God firmly established.
Q: Could you post the titles of each session, or a picture of the table of contents?
Session 1 - Isn't the Bible a Myth?/Hasn't Science Disproved Christianity? Session 2 - How Can You Say There is Only One Way to God?/What About Other Religions? Session 3 - What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?/Why are There So Many Rules? Session 4 - Why Does God Allow Suffering?/ Why is There So Much Evil in the World? Discussion 5 - Why is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?/Why are Christians Such Hypocrites? Discussion 6 - How Can God be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?/ How Can God Send Good People to Hell?
Q: How long is each video session?
Each DVD session is approximately 20 minutes long.
Q: Is it necessary to read Keller's book to accompany this DVD study, or is the discussion guide sufficient?
The DVD is designed to be used with the discussion guide. The book would offer additional insights into the subject matter which may better help to facilitate the study especially if you have a very inquisitive group.
Q: Is there a difference between the discussion guide (sold with the DVD) and the participants guide (sold separately)? I am talking about the series by Tim Keller The Reason for God.
The discussion guide and the participant's guide are the same book.
