This review is for the dvd. But it really doesn't work without the study guide, and works best if the book is being read in conjunction with the study materials.
The speaker on the dvd speaks clearly, is engaging, and sticks to the subject he's discussing. The lighting and camera angle are pleasant and the format setup of each lesson is easy to access. There are lots of texts that are provided on the screen. The speaker begins each session with some thoughts on the chapter being discussed and ends with prayer. Each segment is short and leaves room for the study guide discussion at the end. There are also videos included that are just for the group leader to view before each study. I found these to be very helpful in guiding the class. I used this in our small group and everyone enjoyed it enough that we've purchased another by this same speaker/author to use when we finish this one.
I received a copy of this dvd from Tyndale. All thoughts expressed are my own.
