Ours is an age of rapid change. What is fashionable comes and goes more quickly than ever before. In a world of such rapid change, it's essential to know who you are--to know where you come from, to have your roots go deep. Walking through this book is like going to a large family reunion and meeting for the first time some relatives you didn't know you had. Here in all of its richness and diversity is your family of faith. Of course, the roots of Christian education go deep into the Hebrew heritage. In many ways, Christian education is an extension of Hebrew education.

Great answers start with great questions.
People remember what they discover for themselves far more than what others tell them. A great question can mean the difference between exchanging information and discovering deeper meaning.

Ideal for small-group leaders, Sunday school teachers, and anyone who regularly leads group discussions or committee meetings.

How to Ask Great Questions will equip you to
  • build relationships between group members
  • help people unpack a passage of Scripture or another book
  • draw out opinions, feelings, and assumptions
  • deepen discussions with intentional focus
  • guide people in applying the Bible to their lives
  • facilitate problem-solving and decision-making in group settings

    Being part of a small group can be a bit like climbing a mountain--it has risks but the payoff is immense. That is why Trent, Cox, and Tooker have styled this second book in the Leading From Your Strengths series like a mountain climbing expedition.Just like climbing Mount Everest, climbing the mountain to intimacy in your small group involves five stages, or camps. You begin at your "base camp" commitment, and then move through the various stages of honesty, acceptance, closeness, and finally the mountain's peak of intimacy. Once again, the Ministry Insights team will be your expedition guide on your climb as you learn to leverage your strengths for effective and successful small group experiences.

    Is there any arena in the contemporary church more perplexing than small groups? Leaders and participants alike fill them with promises of unparalleled spiritual intimacy and reliable relationship. Experts put forward model after model, paradigm after paradigm, and frustrated small group leaders and followers meander from one to the next in increasingly vain hope that the next model will deliver the goods. What could be more natural than a group of people sitting together, talking? What could be more contrived than a packaged curriculum, with prefab questions and notes for leaders? Such is the problem of small groups. Scott Boren has wrestled with these challenges for years, in the context of his own small-group ministries and in consultation with churches of every stripe. In this book he reminds us that any small group, no matter how it's organized, is at its heart a collection of people each walking in the way of Jesus. That means we are going somewhere―together―and that means we have a reliable guide.
