In the last three or four days a half dozen or more folks have written me to ask if there is a Study Guide for One.Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow. Yes, there is.
But it’s already in the book, but it’s organic to the book and not an add-on. In fact, it’s a “new kind of study guide.”
First, they don’t do the perfunctory thing that seems to show up in all Study Guides: they don’t ask the content questions like “What did McKnight say about the Kingdom in this chp?” I assume someone in a group can ask that sort of question.
Second, these interludes do two other things: they extend the previous chapter by telling another story or making an additional point that didn’t work in the chp. And they ask a probing question or two.
The interludes then do more than a Study Guide because they are almost a very, very brief chapter-let. But they extend the idea of the chp more organically than does a normal Study Guide. The best compliments I’m having on the interludes is that folks are asking if there is a Study Guide! That’s how organic they are to the book …
