Based on the Acton Institute’s popular documentary The Birth of Freedom, this seven-session small group bible study of the same name will help ground your faith through a powerful telling of how individual rights and freedom were born from a Judeo-Christian worldview.
The Birth of Freedom traces the biblical roots of liberty and debunks the notion Christianity held back development of Western civilization. You’ll learn about the historical development of the concept of freedom and see how it grows out of the Judeo-Christian worldview.
Secular elites have long dictated the terms of Western history. Along the way, they have convinced many that the West is free and prosperous despite our Christian heritage. The Birth of Freedom small group study provides you with an invaluable tool for countering this revision of history and better grounding your faith in the biblical vision of freedom.
This Participant's Guide, designed for use with The Birth of Freedom DVD (sold separately) provides individual and group activities, between-session personal studies, quotes, assessments, and additional background material that will enhance your experience of the video sessions. Includes discussion questions for individuals and groups. When used together they provide you with a practical tool than can transform your faith.
