Written by the dynamic leaders of church ministry across the country, this series explores life-changing topics from a biblical perspective. New Community guides don’t force small groups to choose between Bible study and building community. Just the opposite. Each study delves deeply into Scripture in a way that strengthens relationships.

Written by the dynamic leaders of church ministry across the country, this series explores life-changing topics from a biblical perspective. New Community guides don’t force small groups to choose between Bible study and building community. Just the opposite. Each study delves deeply into Scripture in a way that strengthens relationships. Challenging questions encourage group members to reflect not only on Scripture but also on their own lives---individually and as a part of God’s family. And unlike most Bible studies, the New Community series helps study groups convert biblical principles into practical teamwork---helping at the soup kitchen, bringing a meal to someone, writing an encouraging letter, and so on. Filled with prayer, insight, intimacy, and action, each study in this series will help group members line up their lives and relationship more closely with the Bible’s model for the church. [less]

1 CORINTHIANS 1-9 CHALLENGING CHURCH

2012    96 Pages    (The Good Book Company)

ISBN 13: 9781908317681    ISBN 10: 190831768X

Even today, Jesus is still a figure of intense interest and admiration for millions. But then theres His church. Church is a boring topic for most, and a reluctantly fulfilled duty for many. And we can understand why. Churches say they have the best news in the world, that they have the answer to our problems, that they are Gods embassies on earth; and yet churches are made up of people like you and me, who are grumpy, irritable, unfaithful, selfish, and worse. And as that is sadly true of [...]

Even today, Jesus is still a figure of intense interest and admiration for millions. But then theres His church. Church is a boring topic for most, and a reluctantly fulfilled duty for many. And we can understand why. Churches say they have the best news in the world, that they have the answer to our problems, that they are Gods embassies on earth; and yet churches are made up of people like you and me, who are grumpy, irritable, unfaithful, selfish, and worse. And as that is sadly true of churches today, so it was of the church in Corinth. It was young, it was full of life, and it was just as full of problems. What would God say to such a challenging church? What did they need to be excited by, to listen to, to learn?Use this seven-study guide to open up the first nine chapters of the letter of 1 Corinthians, to hear what God said to His church in Corinth, and what God still says to His church today.

1 CORINTHIANS THE CHALLENGES OF LIFE TOGETHER

STEVENS, PAUL

2001    96 Pages    (IVP Connect)

ISBN 13: 9780830830091    ISBN 10: 083083009X

Life among Christians can be great. But it can also be exasperating! The joys of fellowship in Christ too often give way to division and debate. You may find yourself drawn into arguments over such things as the correct form of worship or the proper role of charismatic gifts. Perhaps you wonder, Why don't we get along together as we should? Or How can we recapture the unity of the early church? Surprisingly, the first Christian believers didn't always live in harmony either! As Paul [...]

Life among Christians can be great. But it can also be exasperating! The joys of fellowship in Christ too often give way to division and debate. You may find yourself drawn into arguments over such things as the correct form of worship or the proper role of charismatic gifts. Perhaps you wonder, Why don't we get along together as we should? Or How can we recapture the unity of the early church? Surprisingly, the first Christian believers didn't always live in harmony either! As Paul Stevens and Dan Williams lead you through this study of 1 Corinthians, you will see that the issues facing the Corinthian church are little different from the ones your church struggles with year after year. Here in 1 Corinthians is a portrait of Christian community not as it was meant to be, but as it often really is. But here too is practical advice for overcoming the challenges of life together. Now available in IVP Connect's revised LifeGuide Bible Study format, 1 Corinthians features questions for starting group discussions and for personal reflection, as well as a new "Now or Later" section following each session.

2013    64 Pages    (The Good Book Company)

ISBN 13: 9781907377853    ISBN 10: 1907377859

Christians in the west have had an easy ride for the last couple of centuries, with freedom to practise their faith, meet together, read and teach the Bible and spread the good news of the gospel. This is unusual compared with the experience of most Bible-believing Christians throughout history and worldwide today. But things could be changing. For how much longer can these freedoms be guaranteed? Wise Christians understand that opposition and suffering are normal for the church and are prepared [...]

Christians in the west have had an easy ride for the last couple of centuries, with freedom to practise their faith, meet together, read and teach the Bible and spread the good news of the gospel. This is unusual compared with the experience of most Bible-believing Christians throughout history and worldwide today. But things could be changing. For how much longer can these freedoms be guaranteed? Wise Christians understand that opposition and suffering are normal for the church and are prepared for anything. That's why Christians today need the message of 1 Peter a letter to first-century believers surrounded by trials and hostility. Why does God let this happen? How can my faith survive? How should I treat those who cause me suffering? These questions and more are covered in five sessions full of practical application. Let's be prepared, so that our faith "may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed" (1 Peter 1 v 7). [less]

Inside and outside church, people ridicule, intimidate and oppose anyone who sticks to the Bible. How can true Christianity survive?This was the situation that the apostle Paul faced, in prison, near the end of his life, and looking to his younger co-worker, Timothy, to take the gospel to the next generation. In this deeply personal letter to his spiritual 'heir', we have the last written words of the man who had labouredlabored so long and hard, against such odds, to build Christ's church.Are you demoralised? Feeling cowardly? Tempted to be ashamed of the gospel? Stand in Timothy's shoes, as you work through these seven studies. Listen to the testimony, the encouragements and the commands of the apostle Paul - and get yourself thoroughly equipped for every good work. You too can fight the good fight, finish the race and receive the reward given to those who are faithful to the end. [less]

Who is your teenager listening to?  Teenagers today are bombarded by messages from their peers, the Internet, music, movies . . . the list goes on. As parents, you may wonder if your words mean anything at all. If so, take heart: all research indicates that the most significant influence on the life of a teenager comes from his or her parents. Yes—parents! In this updated volume, marriage and family expert Dr. Gary Chapman lays out the tools you need to communicate with your teenager. As Dr. Chapman states, “At the root of much teenage misbehavior is a teen’s empty love tank. I am not suggesting that parents do not love their teenagers; I am suggesting that thousands of teenagers do not feel that love. For most parents, it is not a matter of sincerity but rather lack of information on how to communicate love effectively on an emotional level.” Starting with the world in which your teenager lives, Dr. Chapman walks through the emotional needs of teenagers and how you can best express your love to them. You’ll learn how to identify your teenager’s love language, how to address their unique need for independence and responsibility, how to combat anger and set up boundaries, and how to best parent your teenager if you are a single parent or a blended family.

What I have witnessed as a member at North Point takes church growth to a whole new level. Andy and his team communicate principles that will add value to you and the church you love.” -John C.

From what I’ve seen at North Point, these seven practices can improve the game of any church in America.” -John Smoltz, Cy Young Award-winning pitcher “The practices covered in this book are down-to-earth, practical, and come from real difference-makers who know what church leadership is all about.
