In this six-session video Bible study, you and your group will journey to the first century and back again. You’ll explore biblical cities like Ephesus, Laodicea, and Corinth and discover that their daily challenges were very similar to ours when it comes to living the contented, satisfied life. Author and pastor Jeff Manion will help you deal with issues like contentment, generosity, and how to overcome the devastating effects of living by comparison. Each of the six sessions run approximately 15 to 20 minutes. This pack includes one DVD with six sessions and one study guide. The study guide contains video notes, discussion questions, Bible study, and between-session projects.

Description

Why is a contented, satisfied life so evasive? What deep hungers drive the reckless purchasing habits, out of control accumulation, and crazy consumer lifestyle for so many of us? And why are we often driven more by what our neighbors own than what will truly make us happy?

In this DVD-based Bible study, popular communicator and pastor Jeff Manion provides an inspiring and transformative vision for living a deeply contented life in the midst of our consumer-driven, materialistic and often shallow culture. In light of our surroundings, Manion asks a critical question: Is it possible to live a deeply satisfied life, one of great inner joy, even as dreams seem to fade?

Satisfied draws richly from seven passages of scripture, exploring the way in which these messages were received by the original readers and how these passages can alter the way we view wealth, accumulation, and ultimate contentment today.

This study guide contains video notes, individual or group reflection questions, and between session personal projects enhancing your journey through each of the video sessions on the enclosed DVD, taught by Jeff Manion.

  1. Todd

    This study is designed to be done over several weeks. However, we did it all, excluding the projects, over a Men’s Retreat weekend. We plan on picking up the projects of the coming weeks/months. The study was well received, and worked well in our format. Did seem like some of the projected “review times” were a little short of what was needed, at times. All in all very good!
