This book is written for poorly educated people how can only fill in the blanks and no think. I would not give this to anyone with education and a thinking mind. Very disappointing. Fill in the blanks is very elementary school and that is the age group I would use this for. Maybe grade 6-8 students.
Once our group selects a Bible study, we take our time, using as many weeks as needed to get thru a chapter, even though all of us have read and studied the Bible for a long time. One comment that caught our attention prior to our decision to purchase The Purple Book was that new and long-time believers could get something out of it. Well, we spent our whole first session on just the intro page of Chapter 1 -- the page with no questions! Our next session was spent on just Lesson 1 in Chapter 1 -- another 2 pages. If this keeps up, it will take us a year to finish all 12 chapters of The Purple Book! So yes, both ends of the spectrum can get something out of it -- those who just completed Alpha and those who are well established in their faith.
Using the book as a group Bible Study. Great for all levels , provoking great discussion. and in these days and times we felt the need to make sure our foundation is solid. Making this book the perfect tool.
