In this six-session video Bible study, you and your group will journey to the first century and back again. You'll explore biblical cities like Ephesus, Laodicea, and Corinth and discover that their daily challenges were very similar to ours when it comes to living the contented, satisfied life. Author and pastor Jeff Manion will help you deal with issues like contentment, generosity, and how to overcome the devastating effects of living by comparison. Each of the six sessions run approximately 15 to 20 minutes. This pack includes one DVD with six sessions and one study guide. The study guide contains video notes, discussion questions, Bibl study, and between-session projects.

Ill be happy after: the promotion… the new house… the next vacation… a different car… you fill in the blank. Why is a contented, satisfied life so evasive? What deep hungers drive the out of control accumulation, reckless purchasing habits, and crazy consumer lifestyle for so many of us? And why are we often driven more by what our neighbors own than what will truly make us happy?
Filmed at biblically significant historical sites in Turkey and Greece and in the United States, this six-session, video-based Bible study provides an inspiring and transformative vision for living a deeply contented life in the midst of our consumer-driven, materialistic, and often shallow culture. Pastor Jeff Manion weaves masterful contemporary storytelling with rich biblical, historical, and cultural background, revealing the similarities between the struggles of todays culture with that of the New Testament churches.
Satisfied explores the way in which the messages to the New Testament churches were received by the original readers and how these passages can alter the way we view wealth, accumulation, and ultimate contentment today.
This study guide contains video notes, individual or group reflection questions, and between-session personal projects enhancing your journey through each of the video sessions, taught by Jeff Manion.
