Amazon £7.99; Kindle £5.99; SPCK £9.99
Simple, clear, creative, visually stunning.
Clearly aimed at prep for confirmation. Combination of input material, Questions, Bible study and Reflection.
No leader notes as such. Not clear how to use the introductory material to each topic. Adaptation needed but worth the effort. Good questions, Bible study and reflection section.
Church leader or experienced leader.
Same book as leaders, with clear input section, and response section for each topic. Good, attractive, ‘dipping into' book.
Decide which and how to use material, how to time sessions, especially as there are a potential 19 sessions.
Great questions on topic and Bible study, plus space to pray together.
Pictures, art and questions in book as well as text. But no leader notes or activities/hands-on.
Anglican confirmation-based, Anglican understandings of baptism and sacraments, but universal Christian topics; teens to adult.
Section for prayer together.
35%. Each topic includes a relevant biblical passage with questions.
Good questions to encourage engagement with biblical passages, and biblical material also quoted throughout in dealing with topics.
Woven in to discussions of issues and basic Christian doctrines.
Excellent introduction and summary of what it means to be an Anglican Christian, but with application beyond Anglicanism.
Thought-provoking facts, questions, reflections and prayers.
Loads of food for thought, introducing all topics sensitively but clearly.
Very well, including difficult subjects eg divorce, healing, life after death
Implicit only. The chapter on mission is missing!
Included in chapter on ‘Living as a Christian'.
As an outworking of faith, but not major emphasis.
Good on real life; low on potential for impact of Christians.
