Christianity Explored Study Guide
Christianity Explored is a ten-week course that introduces people to Jesus Christ. Week by week, as course participants explore Mark's Gospel, they address three questions that cut to the heart of Christianity: Who is Jesus? Why did he come? What does it mean to follow him?
This Study Guide includes all the questions and group discussion points for each topic covered. It provides brief outlines of each of the talks and contains extra 'home study' questions relating to each week.
The Christianity Explored study guide is available in Braille and 24-point giant print from our partners The Torch Trust. For more details and to order, please visit the Torch Trust website or call 01858 438260.
The Christianity Explored Course has been developed over ten years by Rico Tice, Associate Minister for Evangelism at All Souls Church, Langham Place in London. This Second Edition, written with Barry Cooper and Sam Shammas, has been thoroughly revised and updated.

I have used this study guide to help many enquirers explore the Christian faith. All have found it very helpful and a number have come to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Christianity Explored Course is truly great. We use it twice a year in our church and have had many people come to faith through it. The course is easy to run, with a book to work through and D.V.D of the talk. Excellent!
very useful study to use in a group
mark's gospel, in bite sized chunks, offers reference guidance, along with the opportunity for self study. good thought-provoking questions helpful to start discussion. the presenter on the dvd is easy to listen to, and the dvd is great to use alongside the book.
Ideal for Non-Christians
These study guides are well presented and work very well with the DVD presentations. For those for whom Christianity is totally new, they make starting very easy and non-threatening. For a church, like we are doing, they are too simple and the answers quite obvious - but, then they're not written for us!
Fantastic guide if you are running the course - enough information in the book so that you can edit the talks if you wish as well
We already purchased the Christianity Explored DVD, leaders Handbook and How to run the course book. These booklets are easy to use and have enough information in them to enable guests on the Christianity Explored course to work through the homework and record their own thoughts. An excellent course and the DVD material is great.
Nicely presented and legible.
Been used widely in our church and we have found the material really helpful. Rico's presentation is clear and easy to understand and promotes questions a very valuable addition to our Gospel outreach.
A very good accompaniment to the course. Engaging and informative.
Good content but lacks links between the activities
The content of each study is helpful and the overall aim of studying Mark's gospel is good, but there is a lack of guidance between the component parts of each study to tell you how they link together. So why do we take a particular incident or event out of the 2-3 chapters that have been studied for homework and make them the focus of the introductory study next week and how does that link into the talk that is given?
Great material; check to make sure it is printed accurately
This is sound material and a great way to lead people to think about who Jesus is and why Christianity is nothing apart from having Christ in it. For me, the difference between this and Alpha is the clear presentation of the gospel; nothing fuzzy or leading to some kind of wild weekend with the Holy Spirit.
