Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays
This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by The Good Book Company they have another great offer for you. The brand new edition of Christianity Explored has been described by Michael Horton as “the best resource for group and personal evangelism available”, and today we are offering 5 free starter packs sets, each worth $99. Each set includes all you need to start a Christianity Explored course at your church, in your neighborhood or home: 1 DVD, 3 Leaders’ Guides, 9 Handbooks.

Christianity Explored is ideal as a way of introducing people to Jesus, or as a refresher course for your home group or entire congregation. By focusing on Mark’s Gospel, it allows people to explore the person at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus Christ. The new edition has been fully revised and updated and there are also editions for young people (CY) and those with English as a second language (English-made-easy) as well as a follow-up course called Discipleship Explored.

What are people saying about this new edition? 

“I wish every Church, every Sunday School Class, and every Small Group would use Christianity Explored at least once a year. Then our churches might once again become what they were meant to be: God’s evangelistic society and network of spiritual maternity hospitals where we live in expectation that new Christians will be born. I have rejoiced to see people come to faith in Christ through its ministry.”
Sinclair B Ferguson, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.

“Christianity Explored used to be a great resource for introducing people to Jesus. Now it’s even better. Fresher, sharper, simpler. I love the way the whole course now revolves around Mark’s Gospel, completing the claim that people will meet Jesus from the pages of Mark’s account.”
Tim Chester, Author of Total Church and Pastor of The Crowded House, Sheffield

“Christianity Explored is a tremendous resource for churches who want to reach their community for Christ. It provides a welcoming, accessible, and unapologetically scriptural presentation of the gospel. It also serves as a practical, useable, model to equip and mobilize a congregation for evangelism. This new edition is superbly produced and can be easily used in small or large group contexts.”
Rev. John Currie, Lecturer in Practical Theology and Director of Student Development and Alumni Relations, Westminster Theological Seminary
