A revolution is going on in small group ministry. Small groups want to go to the next level of learning together. This curriculum is a way to integrate the best of biblical teaching from leading teachers such as John Ortberg, Max Lucado, Doug Fields, Erwin McManus, Henry Cloud, Chip Ingram, and others via video with the best of small group study guides written by Brett and Dee Eastman, Todd and Denise Wendorff and Karen Lee-Thorpe from Saddleback Church. In Saddleback small groups, the video component is hugely popular. Groups that have used curriculum with video teaching resist going back to print-only curriculum. Therefore, Brett Eastman has designed a DVD video component to the Doing Life Together small group series.There are thirty-six sessions in the six-book curriculum written by Brett Eastman and others. Each book has six sessions and the titles of each book in the series are (the Doing Life Together small group series titles are also sold as a separate product): Ø Beginning Life Together Ø Connecting with God’s Family Ø Growing to Be Like Christ Ø Developing Your SHAPE to Serve Others Ø Sharing Your Life Mission Every Day Ø Surrendering Your Life for God’s PleasureFor each session, the DVD video segment includes the following elements: A Leadership Lifter (5 minutes), in which a teacher briefs the leader on the key issues of leading this particular session. In particular the leader will learn how to lead the session’s experiential exercise. These exercises make this series a cut above most small group discussion guides. They are much easier to lead when one has seen how to do them. A Drama (3 minutes) that provokes thought and emotion (humor, recognition) about the session’s theme. Drama catches people’s attention and sparks discussion. OR A Personal Testimony (3 minutes). Some topics are easier to discuss more forthrightly when someone on video has “gone first” in the sharing. Group members are also more convinced about the validity of a concept when they see that it has made a difference in the life of someone like them. Teaching (15 minutes) about the session’s core Bible passage and theme. Teaching takes the burden of correct interpretation off the leader, so less experienced leaders can be confident that their groups are biblically sound. Worship Music. Maranatha! Music will provide several praise and worship choruses with visual images and lyrics that will inspire a small group to sing along and worship together. The kit includes six study guides, six double-disc DVDs, and six leader’s inserts (not sold separately). The leader’s inserts help the leader integrate the video teaching for each

Many people today find that their prayers don’t “work.” And like a broken cell phone, DVD player, or TV remote, they throw prayer out as unnecessary “clutter” in their busy lives. Anne Graham Lotz has found that while prayer does work, sometimes the “pray-ers” don’t. So she has turned to the prophet Daniel for help. The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon. Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works. This book will help you pray effectively for your nation, for your families, and for yourself.

Does it take a miracle to read the Bible? God wrote a book, and its pages are full of his glory. But we cannot see his beauty on our own, with mere human eyes. In Reading the Bible Supernaturally, John Piper aims to show us how God works through his written Word when we pursue the natural act of reading the Bible, so that we experience his sightgiving power—a power that extends beyond the words on the page. Ultimately, Piper shows us that in the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something miraculous happens: we are given eyes to behold the glory of the living God.

Revised & Updated Edition! God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we're missing it? It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not, we all know something's wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts—it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

In gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else. While these pursuits may not be the “graven images” of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin you’re struggling with, the discouragement you’re dealing with, the lack of purpose you’re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart. According to Idleman, idolatry isn’t an issue—it is the issue. By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire. Using true, powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, gods at war illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God – enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Can it be better? “If I only had this as my guide . . . if all I had was the Bible . . . and I was to read this book and start a 'church,' what would it look like?” asks Francis Chan, in the BASIC series. “Would it look like the thing we have built here and all refer to as church? Or would it look radically different?” The BASIC Collection features seven reflection guides, bonus features, and all seven films, including: Fear God, Follow Jesus, Holy Spirit, Fellowship, Teaching, Prayer, and Communion.
