As someone with a degree in Religious Education, I was really excited about the opportunity to review the first book of the Design for Discipleship series from NavPress. I'm always looking for studies to recommend either to others for personal study or for Sunday School classes. I was a bit shocked when I received books 1,3 and 5 to review.
The study is divided into 4 or 5 weeks worth of lessons per book. I took a little time and read through the questions for each week and was very happy with what I read.
The study is a bit on the basic side, but it's in-depth for basics. It's not too complicated for a new believer and it's not too basic for even someone who has studied the Word for years. It would be great for use in a Sunday School setting.
The study is a bit long for each week, but if it's taken a few questions per day, it would not be too overwhelming, even for a new Christian.
I like that each lesson has a space for journaling during the week and several have charts to match the lesson.
I will be recommending this as a church wide study and look forward to completing the study both by myself and in a group.
