Victoria2 Stars Out Of 5Need Book to Go With It - Not In DepthDecember 18, 2015VictoriaQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I was truly disappointed with this study. From reading the description and information online it seemed as if you did not have to have the Purpose of Christmas book and that this could be a stand alone DVD/Workbook study. Although it is literally possible to do this study without reading the book, it is extremely basic and not what my group was looking for at all. The biggest draw was that it was a 3 week study which was all we needed but I would not recommend you choose this one unless you are a new believer or only wanting the most basic principles about your faith.

However we all agreed that it turned out to be more much more than we thought it would be. Great for using the mind and re-evaluate the Purpose of Christmas. Would recommend it for everyone. Great dollar value as well. We are busy planning our birthday party for Jesus.

Robert Hendrickson5 Stars Out Of 5This study is very flexible to use.December 5, 2012Robert HendricksonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Great study, great price. Easy to use. It forces us to look at the event called Christmas instead of the date December 25th and what it means to the world. My adult class loves it. We are finishing our last Sunday with a Celebration Party. We will celebrate the purpose of Christmas, the gift that God sent, our Lord and Savior. If you need a short study to fill in for the Christmas holiday season, this is the one. Great Scripture reference, very refreshing look from the normal studies of the Christmas season.
Q: How many minutes are each video?
There are 3 sessions.
Session 1 is 14 minutes, session 2 is 15 minutes and session 3 is 24 minutes long.
Q: Is Rick Warren's "The Purpose of Christmas" good for a middle school group?
This study is geared more for adults so some of the application questions would be difficult for young people with little life experience to answer.
