Study guide is good but not as good as the related book
on November 13, 2014
The study guide is a pretty good supplement for group study of the basic book. However, it takes liberties with the content at times, sometimes adding information not contained in the basic book. I would not have expected this. Also, the questions supplied for group discussion are too many and frequently simplistic. If one were to cover all the questions in group discussion, a reasonably-length study could stretch into far too many weeks. I also found that some important information of the basic book was not covered at all in the study guide. I do admit, however, that "importance" is somewhat in the eyes of the beholder.
I use the study guide in concert with the basic book, and together they provide a very good basis for teaching and group discussion. I think the basic book deserves four stars and the related study guide three.
