Adam Hamilton presents a generous, inspiring vision of eight Christian denominations and faith traditions. Comparing the Christian family to our own extended families, he contends that each denomination has a unique, valuable perspective to offer on the Christian faith.
The traditions included in this eight-week video-and-print study are Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Pentecostalism, and Methodism. For each group, Hamilton gives a brief history, outlines major beliefs, and describes some things we can learn from that tradition to strengthen our own Christian faith. As part of the study, he interviews a religious leader from each tradition.
The Leader’s Guide includes:
- Flexible session formats, to accommodate shorter or longer meeting times
- Helpful hints for facilitating group sessions
- Step-by-step session plans for each week, including goals, prayers, Scripture, discussion questions, activities, key insights, notable quotes, and leader “extras”
- Reproducible handouts for participants to take home and use during the week
