I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
About the Series:
This five-week small group resource helps spark spiritual conversations. Starting spiritual conversations with those outside of the church is a worthy, yet often difficult and intimidating task. Intersect was designed to help overcome those barriers. It is an easy-to-use resource, perfect for sharing with co-workers, friends, neighbors, and family to enter into meaningful conversations.
Each film is accompanied by thought-provoking questions designed to encourage participants to examine the world in which they live and the life they are pursuing, always ending with a conversation on how Jesus intersects the current topic. Allow this powerful new film resource to engage those you are in relationship with and then propel them forward in their next step with Jesus.
I co-lead a small group before church on Wednesday’s and I requested this book with my groupies in mind (all of which are teens). I watched these videos and really enjoyed all of the topics that were covered as well as the questions that were contained in the study guide. The videos were shorter than I’m used to in a video study, however they worked well as they leave you plenty of time for discussion (the videos are roughly 5 minutes long). The only concern that I had for my group in particular is that the life events aren’t easily relatable to teens. The videos focus more on the struggles found within an adults’ life, like loving and raising an autistic child, rather than the teen problems. However, even though the focus is not on my age group, I still managed to get quite a few things from the video and the questions are extremely thought provoking.
So in overall, I recommend an older audience for this series, however if you have a few teens in your group, I’m sure that they could still get something from the series. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars 🙂
Thanks for reading!
