By Daniel F. DeVilder on September 19, 2003
Format: Paperback
We are up and running with this brand new book in Miami. This book is the first in a series outlining the 'Purpose-Driven' model's five purposes. While the first lesson highlights the 'Great Commandment' (Love God/Love People) as our overarching purpose, the remaining five lessons introduce the specific purposes of Connecting (Fellowship), Growing (Discipleship), Serving (Ministry), Sharing (Evangelism), and Surrendering (Worship). The remaining five books flesh out each of those purposes. Each lesson also has elements of all five purposes. For instance 'discipleship' will be the Bible Study portion, whereas 'sharing' will stimulate thought in how to reach out to the 'unconvinced' with what you have learned. If you don't believe in purpose, you're going to hate this material!
Each book can be used as a tool for other group and individual growth experiences. The group can read and reread articles on 'keeping your group from becoming a clique,' how to do small group prayer, what their group covenant is (which has places for all to sign each others book) as well as have a handy reference to member's contact info. Individually they can memorize printed scripture, Keep a prayer log, journal, and much more. It almost negates the need for Fields' HABITS pack, which I ordered concurrently with this series. HABITS does offer a few extras, like the 'Bank O Blessings' and allows for more flexibility and variety on the individual disciplines. But in my opinion, except for the tithing option, you would be doing overkill by using both materials at the same time.
There is more material in each lesson than you could possible do in an hour or hour and a half.

Fantastic book! I started the youth group this year with this book, and we've been going for the last three and a half weeks on it already. It outlines a framework for living the Christian life with five areas: fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism and worship. Very easy to work through and use with the students; don't have to be there for every session to catch up with the rest of the group; all in all, it's been a great way for us to start the year!
