This no-preparation-required teaching resource provides a year's worth of engaging, transforming, and easy-to-lead discussion guides for adult small groups. All 52 studies are "open and go" for those who don't have the time or energy to prepare. They can be used by anyone in the group--not just the leader--and are perfect for road trips, retreats, coffeehouse conversations, or even as personal devotionals.
