Once congregations are introduced to these questions and concepts—some of which may be new to them—many will want to explore these matters in greater depth. The “Going Deeper” studies build on the “Getting Your Feet Wet” series and are designed to accompany already-published works. These resources are designed specifically to aid groups who desire to study a book together with a particular focus on the implications for congregational life. The following materials are currently available in PDF format by clicking on the titles below:
Life Together : A 7-session study written by Dale Ziemer to accompany Bonhoeffer’s classic text of the same name.
Rejoice in the Lord: A 10-session study written by Stephen Fowl on the New Testament book of Philippians.
Mission in Christ’s Way: A 7-session study written by Inagrace Dietterich to accompany Lesslie Newbigin’s pamphlet of the same name. The text of Newbigin’s pamphlet is also available online for personal study by clicking here.
Life on the Vine: A 10-session study written by Mark Price, including separate participant and leader guides for each session, to accompany Philip Kenneson’s book of the same name. See the links below.
