Many Christians believe our future in heaven is all that really matters. But that's not what the Bible teaches. Through this small group bible study, Surprised by Hope, premier Bible scholar N. T. Wright brings you inside the Scriptures to grasp the full, breathtaking hope Jesus offers the world, and its implications for your life today. Gain an exciting new vision for your life on earth in light of your future in heaven. Wonderful as is the promise of heaven, a glorious hereafter is just part of what salvation is about. What about today? Jesus called his followers the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Your life here and now is of tremendous consequence, and what you believe about the future has a direct impact on how you live in the present. In six transforming, faith-inspiring DVD sessions, premier biblical scholar N. T. Wright opens your eyes to the amazing full scope of what God's Word has to say about the world to come and the world that is. This DVD will help you get the most out of each session as you explore such questions as What is heaven really like? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get there? What hope does the gospel hold for this present life? In what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us? This DVD is designed for use with the companion Surprised by Hope Participant Guide (both are included in this pack).

Have you ever felt that your life—and budget—is spiraling out of control? Clutter spilling onto counters and coffee tables, creating havoc everywhere you look? Do you sometimes wish you could pull yourself together but wonder exactly how to manage all the scattered pieces of a (normal) chaotic life? Regardless of the never quite-enough message society wants to give us, always wanting more and ending up having too much is not the Good Life God intended. More than setting and sticking to a budget; more than quitting the constant filling of our spaces with deals on more stuff—we must fill our hearts with the truth of God's Word and allow it to change what our hearts desire. The Good Life is one defined not by what we have but by who we are. If you feel stressed out or overwhelmed, this study will help you discover the way to a life rich in faith, family, friends—and a budget that balances with space to breathe.

A remarkable gift can arrive in an unremarkable package. One did in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago. No one expected God to come the way he did. Yet the way he came was every bit as important as the coming itself. The manger is the message. In this four-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores how the One who made everything chose to make himself nothing for us. He experienced hunger and thirst. He went through the stages of human development. He was taught to walk, stand, and wash his face. He was completely and genuinely human. Because of Bethlehem, we no longer have marks on our record . . . just grace. We have the promise that God is always near us, always for us, always within us—and that we have a friend and Savior in heaven. Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, these promises endure. The Because of Bethlehem Study Guide includes video discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions. Session Titles: God Has a Face Worship Works Wonders God Guides the Wise Every Heart a Manger Designed for use with Because of Bethlehem: A DVD Study 9780310687849 (sold separately). The DVD is a two-disc set for Christmas and Easter.

In this six-session video Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Judah Smith, bestselling author of Jesus Is_____, asks a surprisingly different question from the usual "How are you?"—but this is the question Judah chooses to ask his friends, because he knows the health of the soul is too often overlooked in the busyness of everyday life. In the rush of living moment to moment, many of us find ourselves simply surviving, struggling daily with frustration, restlessness, boredom, and ever-fleeting joy. But if we would pause, we'd find the things that matter most in life—stability, peace, hope, love—are rooted in the health of what Judah calls the "inside you." Judah shares his own mistakes and foibles to help you find your way through the emotional roller coasters of life and discover the soul-healing essentials of rest, responsibility, restraint, and relationships. This is an invitation to find lasting satisfaction by bringing your feelings into alignment with God's truth, moving beyond surviving to thriving, and learning how to live each day with eternal significance. The How’s Your Soul Study Guide includes video discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions. Sessions include: When Is My Soul Home? (19:30) What Makes My Soul Healthy? (21:30) Why Does My Soul Have Hope? (11:30) Who Does My Soul Hold On To? (15:30) How Is My Soul Helped? (12:00) Where Is My Soul Headed?

In this six-session video-based small group Bible study, bestselling author Carol Kent gives proof that you can experience grace and joy during even the lowest moments of your life. This Participant’s Guide helps you decide where you stand when you are caught between a rock and a hard place: Will you place yourself in a posture of humility and complete dependence on God, or will you just “try harder” and stumble over what could be a transforming encounter with grace? Carol Kent and her husband, Gene, are living what some would call a heartbreaking life—their son, Jason, a young man who initially had so much promise, is now living out a life sentence for murder in a maximum security prison. All their appeals have been exhausted. But despite their hopeless situation, the Kent’s live a life full of grace. With hope, joy, and a sense of humor, Carol helps you find God’s “grace places” in the midst of your worst moments. This Participant Guide provides individual and group activities, additional background material, and between-session personal studies that will enhance your experience of the video sessions. Sessions include: Grace in the Hardest of Places – Surprised by Faith Angels in Disguise – Surprised by Mercy Longing for a Better Me – Surprised by Contentment The Secret Power of Gratitude – Surprised by Thanksgiving Why Do You Weep? – Surprised by Joy Dwelling in the Great Place – Surprised by Freedom Designed for use with the Between a Rock and a Grace Place Video Study (sold separately).
