Inter-Varsity Press Decisions, Seeking God's Guidance; LifeGuide Topical Bible Studies

Don Baker begins this guide by saying, "God has given me free will, and while I appreciate his confidence in my ability to choose, there are times when I wish that he would make the decisions for me." Unfortunately, the Bible cannot give us the answer to every choice we face either. But the Bible does teach us how to make decisions, and this study will help you to learn those principles and apply them to your life. This LifeGuide Bible Study in the new revised format features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, as well as a new "Now or Later" section in each study. 10 studies for individual or group use.

A good study, but not the best LifeGuide study

My Sunday School class just finished working through this study, and it was definitely a great experience. It covers all aspects of the decision-making process and provides and in-depth look at what the Bible has to say about making Godly decisions. Topically, it was exactly what we wanted. However, the lessons seemed shorter than other LifeGuide studies we've done (including studies of the Psalms and the Couples of the Old Testament study). As a result, we didn't always completely fill the time allotted for Sunday School and almost always had to include the "Now or Later" section to fill our available time. This is definitely a good study, but as a group, we enjoyed some of the other LifeGuide studies more.

I have used this study guide to teach a class on Godly Decision Making for the last year to over a hundred people in our church. The study guide has been well received. It is thorough and includes some excellent passages for consideration in decision making. I recommend it to you without hesitation.

Study guide has a good approach to examining what happened then & there in scripture and poses questions about the here & now. In many ways a person realizes the problems we face and the decisions we must make are no different that what is revealed in scripture. So if we learn to search the scriptures we are given a perspective as to what we should do today.

Our study group likes that this study is Biblically based and broken down into 12 manageable bites. The leaders' notes in the back of each book are very helpful too.

Our group enjoyed this study. I appreciated that each weekly study was not too long and we were able to finish discussing in 1 hour.

This is a good study as far as it goes, but the lessons are very short and take very little time to do (which could be good for some people, but not my group). He does provide good Leader's Help in the back to answer questions. The chapters don't always deal closely with making decisions, but they are very good topics. I recommend it for quick individual study and groups that can't spend a lot of time preparing.
