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.

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.

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.

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.

For anybody seeking God, or just curious, this book is a must buy. The author used to not believe in God until he went on the journey of writing this book. What he reveals in his discussion with Christian experts is truly amazing and eye opening. You are certainly to read this book many times and reference it in conversations with friends.

I bought 9 of these for our small Bible study group. We also bought the companion DVD and the original book for each member. We could actually just use the study questions in the book, so I don't feel this workbook is absolutely necessary to our study since most of the questions are do be done "in class" after viewing the video, rather than before class to be ready for discussion. Also I think this is most targeted at seekers, not people who are already believers.

Anything I order from Amazon is just like it looks on the computer.
Everything arrives just as stated. If there is a delay, I receive a note
telling me this, why it is late and when to expect it.
I always go to the Amazon website first.
Very pleased.
I do not like to shop at town and Amazon is great.
Do most of my Christmas shopping and get great ideas from them when I
don't know what to buy. Amazon is a great place to find old movies.
