Thomas Nelson Putting Plan B Into Action: A DVD Based Study

One DVD and 1 Participant's Guide

Broken dreams and disappointments can be a source of healing and a pathway to eventual growth. As you listen to Pete Wilson's DVD sessions, participate in discussions, and share with others in your group, you will begin to experience God's help and see God at work in your life and each other's.

Six sessions of DVD teaching, discussion questions for going deeper with your group, prayer, plus 5 days of reading & reflection at home will bring you hope, healing, and an understanding of Jesus' words when He said: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble but take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33 (NIV)

You have a story. Everyone has a story. A story of plans that didn't turn out as expected, people who disappointed you, goals that didn't pan out. Maybe you lost your job, you and your spouse have been unable to have children, or a loved one died of cancer. In Putting Plan B Into Action: A DVD-Based Study, Nashville-based pastor and church planter Pete Wilson speaks to those who have experienced a Plan B situation, a time when God didn't show up the way you expected. Based on Wilson's book, Plan B: What Do You Do When God Doesn't Show Up the Way You Thought He Would?, this small group study uses real-life contemporary stories and biblical teaching to lead you through the process of discovering the Plan B for your life and embracing it.
Each of the six group sessions includes a 12-15-minute video message from Wilson followed by a brief reading, a series of questions designed to encourage small group discussion, and a prayer. Group leaders are encouraged to use the questions to get people talking but to allow the discussion to go wherever the participants need it to go rather than covering every question. The participant guide includes 5 daily personal devotions to be used in the week following each group session. A daily scripture reading, short message from Wilson, and questions help to reinforce the message during the week.
This is a fantastic study. The DVD is beautifully produced and the content of each session is excellent. The participant guide coincides nicely with the DVD and encourages honest sharing and forming of community among group members, something that is so important for people who are dealing with life's struggles. Most importantly, the study is grounded in scripture and reminds us that we must turn to God when dealing with the pain of disappointment.
Putting Plan B Into Action: A DVD-Based Study is well-suited both for Christians and as an outreach to non-Christians. I encourage you to use this study with your small group or to start a small group using the study.
