‘Nothing builds relationships like small groups’ declares this book. Using a sub-heading of ‘understanding the dynamics of small groups’, this small volume sets out to explore the profit of studying the Bible together in a welcoming climate with a well managed small group.
This a well focused book aimed initially at pastors or small group leaders but it has many valuable lessons for participants in existing study groups. Many of these lessons are already being applied elsewhere and the true to life situations, stories and scenarios reflect the settings in which study groups will find themselves in. A whole section devoted to ‘Organisation’ answers the practical questions that people will have, gives useful practical advice and sets out the principles that groups should keep to.
It is interesting to note that advice given across the book is not completely prescriptive and offers guiding thoughts and principles for each group to find their way. It does give useful advice and templates with the ’Five Practical Steps’ sections for each church’s ministry and for the small groups at the end of each chapter, making this book stand out as so valuable.
Very spiritually based and highly recommended.
