Seasons of Sorrow Application Questions & Group Study Guide

A Late Summer Family Update

Since releasing Seasons of Sorrow I have been asked if I can provide application questions (for people who may be reading it individually and who wish to be deliberate in applying what they read) and a group study guide (for people who may be reading it with a Bible study, small group, or reading group). Preparing such resources was on my list of things to do—and is now done.

The free Seasons of Sorrow Application Questions & Group Study Guide is available as a free download. You’ll find questions related to each of the chapters that are meant to provoke meditation and application, and you’ll find a plan to read through the book in either four or eight sessions.

You can download it for free right here:

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
