5 reviews for Start Becoming a Good Samaritan: Six Session DVD Study

  1. Anne

    I used this in a small-group setting.The DVD seems like it was created with “something for everyone” — not necessarily a bad thing, if you’re using this for a large church’s curriculum. I gained a lot from some sessions, not much from others. Such is the nature of a DVD with clips from multiple voices. “Host” John Ortberg opened and closed each session with warmth, humor, and good insight.The Participant’s Guide, on the other hand, needs a serious and comprehensive revision. Questions are clearly intended for open-ended discussion. However, when my group and I read through them, we definitely felt we were being guided to answer in a particular (PC) direction, which is the antithesis of a question intended to bring about self discovery. I hate to knock down someone’s work, but if people are using this as a *Bible study*, it’s important that this is called to the publishers’, authors’, and potential users’ awareness.

    I have been using this in our adult Sunday school; the 20-30 minute videos are eye-opening, humbling and promote a lot of creative thoughts, heart felt emotions and insight into how blessed our lives truly are.

    The videos inspire us to not only be more like the Good Samaritan, but, to take a step back and evaluate who and what type of person we really are. If you are not touched and motivated by the speakers on the video, you need a serious examination of where Christ is in your life.

  3. Montana

    The speakers on this DVD are compelling and encouraging — to the point that our Bible study group started formulating plans for what we can do NOW. Instead of preaching, speakers seem to nudge the listener, convict his or her heart, and offer practical suggestions. This is an excellent study. The participant’s guide is very thorough. We would like to have more Scriptures included in the study.

  4. Rick

    An excellent resource and DVD, with powerful stories, great presentations, good list of resources for further study, etc.

  5. GP

    This study has sparked more heavy duty discussion than most other I’ve led: you are called to become good Samaritan.
