Are you tired of reading yet another news story about Christians acting their worst?
Today there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive, and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested, and politically co-opted. What has happened in our society? It seems one short outrageous video or pithy post can trigger an avalanche of comments on social media.

Welcome to the new age of outrage.
In this guide, Ed Stetzer--respected columnist and popular Bible teacher--leads small groups through a deep conversation of what it would look like if Christians were at their best. How might our world and our communities be different?

Spend the next six weeks discussing what it means to represent the love of Jesus Christ in this new polarized age.

This discussion guide for small groups is designed to be used with the teaching videos featuring Ed Stetzer (available for purchase at edstetzer.com).

    God's Care for the Brokenhearted

    Put this in the hands of a grieving friend to ease the journey through stages of grief. Words of comfort and biblical examples of grief for losses of many kinds help to give perspective, meaning, and hope to the devastation of loss through death, divorce, and the ending of significant relationships.

    Loss is inevitable. But hope is available.

    Everyone goes through loss, but the pain of losing a loved one is especially difficult. It seems that the sadness will go on forever. Every moment is consumed with the overwhelming grief that the loss is final. The agony makes us wonder if the tears will ever stop. Our hearts break with despair. We desperately want some sense of comfort. We need compassion and understanding. We long for a time of renewed hope and a reason for living.

    And the Scripture gives us this message of comfort:
    God sees your broken heart. He hears your cries. He cares for you and has a message you need to hear.

    These are the Bible stories and passages I hung onto when my marriage ended in divorce. I had to remind myself over and over of God s care and faithfulness, even when I was in despair. I m glad I listened to God rather than to my fears. The words and promises in this pamphlet pulled me through. Single Mother, So. California

    The Greek edition of the New Testament known as the Textus Receptus, from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, has thousands more words than earlier manuscripts of the second through fourth centuries. Major English translations based on the Textus Receptus, such as Tyndale's New Testament and the King James Version, have all these extra verses, phrases, and words.

    This book clearly presents these additions to English readers and then explains why they were added. Scribes often made insertions based on their knowledge of the other gospels, other passages of Scripture, Christian theology, and oral traditions. By understanding the sources and probable reasons for the insertions, students and teachers of the Bible can make informed translation and interpretive decisions.

    Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth release from the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Releasing in 2011, it joins previous best sellers like "Fireproof" and "Facing the Giants" to touch hearts and impact lives through heartfelt stories of faith and hope. Churches used "Fireproof" to change marriages; COURAGEOUS provides the opportunity to strengthen families and fathers.
    The story of four law officers who discover leading a family takes even more bravery than fighting crime, COURAGEOUS captures the heart of the father, calling him to Christ as he seeks to be a better dad. As churches and individuals have done with other Sherwood pictures, this movie provides a great opportunity to reach out socially and spiritually to friends, neighbors, and co-workers by inviting them to attend a COURAGEOUS screening, a related Sunday morning sermon, men's ministry event, or small-group Bible study.
    Toward that goal, the "Courageous Campaign Kit" comes complete with a step-by-step planning guide, supportive sermon outlines, a 4-week small-group study (with member book and supporting film clip DVD), evangelism outreach materials, a DVD-ROM with promotional trailers and worship helps, an advance copy of Sherwood pastor Michael Catt's "Courageous Living" book, plus branded products featuring official COURAGEOUS art to create an exciting campaign suitable for your church or ministry needs.

    In the new film Courageous (from the makers of Fireproof), four law officers are confident and focused when standing up to the worst the streets have to offer. But leading their families at home in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.

    Based on the highly anticipated movie, the Courageous Living Bible Study is a 64-page book used for four weeks by an individual in relation with the class leader's companion teaching DVD of Courageous film clips. It will guide the participant toward living more courageously in four key areas:

    Responsibility: serving, protecting, and casting a vision for their family
    Priorities: focusing on eternal things rather than what is temporary
    Legacy: recognizing a father's potential impact as a godly role model
    Faith: strengthening a father's identity in Christ, increasing in wisdom

    This beautiful pamphlet contains the full text of the Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, and Chalcedonian Creed, and explains why they are important to learn today.

    In 14-pages you will take a simple easy-to-understand look back to the historical teachings of the church, and bring them to life for today's believers. During the time of the early church (AD 30-AD 400) some key beliefs were misunderstood by Gnostics and other religious groups. Some people couldn't tell the difference between the teachings of Jesus' apostles and the notions that were common in society. It was important to put together short summaries of the essential doctines of the faith. Many of the phrases were written to address particular false beliefs. The pamphlet shows that many of the questionable teachings of 2000 years ago are still around. Understanding how the church dealt with these issues in the past helps us to deal with those same issues today. 14 panels, fits inside most Bibles, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, unfolds to 38 inches long.

    A clear simple explanation of the church's response to ancient heresies, many of which are common in today's cultic groups and other religions.

    CHART 1
    Concise easy-to-understand chart with explanations of these groups. They are important to know because so many modern heresies are similar to them. Without a chart such as this, it is difficult to tell the truth from an incorrect belief because groups use the same terms.
    • Docetism
    • Ebionitism
    • Adoptionism
    • Manicheanism
    • Marcionism
    • Modalism
    • Montanism
    • Apollinarianism
    • Arianism
    • Macedonianism
    • Pelagianism
    • Nestorianism
    CHARTS 2, 3 and 4
    These charts explain each part of the three Creeds line by line and give Bible references for each phrase.
    • Apostles Creed
    • Nicene Creed
    • Chalcedonian Creed
    CHART 5
    Side-by-side comparison of Gnostic and Christian beliefs on:
    • Jesus, Salvation, Origin of Evil
    • Cosmonogy (origin of the universe) and Cosmology (the nature, order, and function of the universe)
    This pamphlet will make the Creeds come alive. It takes important concepts and makes them clear and understandable for youth, college, and adults.

    Ideas for using this pamphlet:
    1. Confirmation and baptism and communion-preparation classes
    2. Parents of confirmation students
    3. Teacher training on the basic beliefs of Christianity
    4. Personal devotional reading
