The newly revised, all-in-one-volume foundational resource! If you’re considering Companions in Christ for your church, begin with this book.
This one-volume introduction to Companions in Christ moves through an uninterrupted 28-week study of five topics: spiritual formation, scripture, prayer, vocation and spiritual companionship. This participant’s book is recommended for groups who will continue their study together for the full 28 weeks.
Each week of study begins with an inviting and often challenging reading by a recognized author in spiritual formation. In addition to the weekly reading, this book provides questions and daily scripture readings to guide your private reflection. The week closes with a two-hour group session where you share your thoughts, reflect together, and take part in diverse group learning experiences.
Companions in Christ offers small groups a powerfully transforming experience in opening yourself to God’s presence and guidance. Explore classic spiritual practices, and develop new daily patterns that will open your life to a deepening relationship with God and with your group.
This revised foundational resource features a whole new look and some refreshed content gleaned from years of practical application in congregations across the country. Overall, it’s a rich, imaginative opportunity to new discovery!
Also available are separate participant books for each of the five topics mentioned above, which gives your group a chance to take a break between study modules:
spiritual formation in Embracing the Journey
scripture in Feeding on the Word
prayer in Deepening Our Prayer
vocation in Responding to Our Call
spiritual companionship in Exploring Spiritual Guidance
A revised Leader’s Guide, containing a “Getting Started Guide” and new plans for a closing retreat, is also available.
