Excellent resource for new believers as well as a great refresher (and eye-opener) for long-time believers.

Saddleback Community Church gets a lot of criticism stating that it is too "seeker sensitive" and therefore implying that they water down or distort the truth. This resource is one example of how that isn't the case. The doctrinal studies found in the Foundations study are some ofthe best that I have seen in years. I have used these in small groups as well as adapted these for large group. These studies provide exactly what they advertise - Solid faoundations on which to build your life.

My husband and I were participants when our church used "Foundations" for a mixed-group Bible study. The group included college students, single adults, married adults, senior adults, new believers, and long-time Christians. "Foundations" is one of the most dynamic and informative studies we have ever experienced. It covers every major Biblical truth/doctrine from Creation to the Second Coming. The format encourages and stimulates discussion, but keeps everyone focused on what scripture has to say about each topic and how it relates to daily living. We enjoyed many lively (but amiable!) discussions as we shared comments, questions, experiences, and opinions. We all came to realize that regardless of our age, or level of maturity in Christ, forming a Christian world-view is vital to keeping our balance in today's world. Having a basic knowledge of scriptural truth/doctrine helps us understand life from God's point of view and gives us the tools we need to make good choices and decisions in everyday life. Unlike many study books that are discarded after the study is completed, the Foundations Participant's Guide remains a useful reference to review and continue to expand on each of these essential truths.

This material is wonderful for the local church. It helps people understand the foundations of our faith without getting so technical or theological that they loose interest in the first few minutes.
I have used this material in both large and small group settings and it is excellent.

This is a life changing book. We started using these book for our Bible Study every Wednesday Night. Within three weeks of using foundations we have seen a dramatic change in Bible Study we have seen more in attandance and the moral of the people has been on an all time high. I recommend this book (foundation) to all people, Ministers, Teachers and Pastors. If you are interested in learning or teaching about building a solid foundation in the word of God this is a great book to start with....

This is volume 2 of the Teacher's Guide that's used with the Foundations Participant's Manual. The guide is very useful is helping to explain the basics of our Chrisitian faith to the "unchurched" as well as refreshing those who have been Christians for a long time but may have forgotten the foundational teachings. It is also helpful in teaching other's how to share their faith and confidently explain why they believe what they believe. I didn't always agree with some of the statements made in the book but left room for individual interpretation and personal experience by the authurs. However, the gospel was never compromised and the book is very useful in teaching the basics of Christianity.

I did not realize that this book is only part 2, IE it does not have the first half of the lessons planned that correspond to the participants guide. Thant would have been nice to know. I did have good service though
