Publisher's Description

This 26-session Bible overview—designed to equip lay leaders to serve as elders, Sunday school teachers, small group facilitators, and in other positions of service in the church—can be completed as a group study or a self-study. The Training for Service Leader Guide includes the full text of the Student Guide as well as the material needed to lead the 26-session Bible survey course and to certify students for positions of Christian service.

Both volumes have revised graphics and have been updated to reflect the best understanding of the Bible and educational methodology.
The church depends on volunteer workers to staff educational ministries. Sunday school teachers and small group leaders may have a heart to teach the Bible, but how have they been academically prepared?

Over the course of a century, Training for Service has equipped over one million volunteers with this basic course and certification for Bible teaching. This new revision retains all the features listed above and also gives access to, which:

• Gives the leader access to every reproducible included in the Leader Guide in a larger format.
• Allows the leader to create a full-color, fully personalized completion certificate for each graduate.
• Posts names of every graduate of the course submitted by the leader month by month.
• And contains many more helpful features!

    Content vs. Packaging

    I have taught the revision done by Orrin Root and Eleanor Daniel for 15 years. The cover of the book and the font were very ordinary. I can understand why the packaging and formatting would be freshened up. But I am SAD, very sad that the content has been tampered with. It was the most successful, fruitful and exciting Bible curriculum I have ever had the privilege to teach. Every class grew greatly in number and I usually had to reorder more books for people who wanted extra copies to give to others. The students enjoyed learning the material and eagerly memorized and studied for the optional tests. Overwhelmingly, they communicated how much they had learned and grown through this study. I am planning to teach this class again in January 2016, Lord willing, and I'm very upset that I cannot use the previous revision. New and improved is not always improved at all. Still valuable, but an inferior revision.

    I used the original over 20 years ago and believe that it was more challenging than this book in respect to the tests, however, this book offers a bit more historical information than the original did. Over all an excellent guide.

    PS: Use to the old book but will use the new.

    I have used Training For Service and was a prior student. I do prefer the testing in the original book much better than the multiple choice tests that are offered now. I believe we don't place a high enough standard/expectation on our students of the Word and this move to an easier test format validates that. I still have the old curriculum and will continue to use the test from it.

    Good ideas for presenting the lessons. Helps to get students involved. The only negative is the binding.
