When I purchased The Case for Christfor use in the midweek church service of our small congregation, I was fortunate to read in a review that the participant's guide is a necessary tool for effective group leadership of the series. The Leader's Guide which comes with the DVD set does not contain the discussion questions which are a central part of the experience as envisioned by the producers, and the Participant's Guide does not come with the set but must be purchased separately.

Although we are using the series in the context of a group of (mostly) Christian believers, and it is entirely appropriate as a Christian apologetics/educational/inspirational tool for such a group, the producers envision it as an evangelization tool for those who are skeptical or unchurched but interested in the questions of whether Jesus even existed as a historical figure, what claims the Bible actually makes about Jesus, and what basis anyone might have for accepting those claims. This is the audience to whom the series is mainly directed.

The participant's guide contains a little review and background material for each of the DVD's six sessions, but the majority of the material consists of discussion questions, questions for personal thought, and, for each session, a section on "Personal Reflection" to be read and contemplated by participants between sessions. There is ample space for notes or reflection.

The six sections (corresponding to the six sessions on the companion DVD) are
1. The Investigation of a Lifetime
2. Eyewitness Evidence
3. Evidence Outside the Bible
4. Analyzing Jesus
5. Evidence for the Resurrection
6.

Great idea in putting forth a 6-session study. This is really geared toward an atheist/agnostic in its presentation, but we made it into a small group study as part of my church. We took it on as identifying the resources and truth behind the objections made by skeptics, particularly in articulating the truth behind the evidence for Jesus of Nazareth. Good introductory study group for apologetics in establishing the historical evidence of the original source documents of the New Testament.

Maybe I missed it, but once I received this study guide, we noticed that it needs a DVD. So, that was another purchase we had to make. Overall, it was an informative, in-depth study of the historical evidence for Christ. Some of it is well-known. Much of it is not. It made for some great conversation opportunities. However, the study guide alone would not be enough without the DVD.

This is the study guide that goes with the DVD. It helps direct discussion after watching the excerpt from the video. This bundle (the book, the DVD and the study guide) deals with questions regarding the validity of the gospels and the existence of Christ. Did He really live? If so, was he just a profit? Great study for skeptics, and for those with questions.

Our bible study group is struggling to connect the book with the DVD. We were hoping to build our apologetic skills, but the guide seems to be a guide for non-believers.

The guide suggests reading book chapters and then viewing segments of the DVD. That is too much prep for our group. Our growth comes mostly from our discussion time and with all the work in each section, there leaves little time for discussion. So, we stray from the recommended approach. It would be great if there was a guide for current believes who want to grow their apologetic skills.

I use this video to present Christ to non-believers - especially those that want an intellectual debate. The facts are well presented.
