This has proven to be a wonderful inreach and outreach project tool. We have 4 small groups using both The Story and the participant study guides. Three different people have reported back that they have been out in the public (doctor appt., etc) and have The Story in hand and it has been a tool to start conversations. Very pleased with everyone's response to it.
Watching the video and doing the participants guide is a must if you are doing 'The Story'. It brings it all together from a different perspective than normal. It helps make it more real and personal. It is an absolute must if you are doing the study.
I was given the book The Story by my bible study teacher. When I saw the study guide for the DVD, I was a little apprehensive about ordering it since I didn't have the DVDs. I decided to order the study guide anyway, and have been very pleased. I've found the questions to be very helpful in understanding what I'm reading in the book.
