Original edition Study Guide for each participant on a Discipleship Explored course.


Discipleship Explored is for anyone who wants to make the most of their Christian lives, but especially for people who have recently completed an evangelistic course and decided to follow Christ.

Developed by the team behind Christianity Explored and based on the book of Philippians, the course lasts eight weeks, with each session lasting about two hours and has a group discussion, a study in Philippians, short talk and further discussion.

Each participant requires a copy of this Study Guide which includes a Bible reading plan for further study.

The Discipleship 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.

Other information

'The material looks outstanding. By providing both the study questions and the eight talk outlines (contained in the Leaders' Manual), the writers have done the hard work for us. Leaders are given good, biblical advice for being an effective discipler along with many useful tips for running the group. Participants benefit from questions that accompany their daily Bible readings. Good handling of Scripture is modelled in the use of Philippians.

Discipleship Explored will prove to be a great way of establishing young believers in the faith and will also serve as a great refresher for more established Christians.'

Great Tool for Discipleship

(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Handbook')

 Our international congregation has used the material several times and each time we have been blessed. The lessons are so clearly presented and Biblically based that even non-native English speakers can understand them. The study guide questions draw people into spiritual sharing and deep discussion.

Good discussions

(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Handbook')

 We have a large home group of long standing Christians and although the given questions didn't appeal too much the preparation and thought provoking discussion prior to these made for a very interesting session.

great little book

(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Handbook')

 I lead a small bible study group and this has been a great find. You can extend longer than 8 weeks if needed, I found adaptable. The opportunity to get into the word is always a good thing and this little book was a great find. I'm looking forward to using the other resources.

Excellent resource

(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Handbook')

 We have just finished running a course using the DVD & handbook. We found it an excellent resource. Most on the course had been on the "Christianity explored" course previously. The format was easy to use and we found the content to be excellent too. Many people found it clarified issues they had not understood and opened up discussion easily. The DVD was excellently produced and very watchable. A useful tool for believers whatever their level of spiritual maturity. The challenges of Philippians are there for however long our Christian experience.

Excellent and challenging

(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Handbook')

 We are using it in a home group which first came together 4 years ago as an amalgamation of two groups on an Alpha course. At that time we struggled to find a good follow up to the Alpha course, not finding the Life Worth Living as useful as we had hoped.
With Discipleship Explored we have all found it very challenging (in a positive sense). This goes for those who have been Christians for the above length of time and for those of us who have been Christians far longer.
It is an excellent course.

Excellent resource

(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Handbook')

 We have used Discipleship Explored with an ecumenical house group and have found it an inspiring resource. The video material is very powerful and the way that the bible passage is recapped each week means that the message is really hammered home. The follow up work reinforces and widens the message of the session and is very worthwhile. New Christians might find it rather demanding but the course material will stand alone for those who are unable or unwilling to do the follow up. I fully recommend it

 What an inspiring thought provoking and cal to action course. It was so amazing the holy spirit was alive at every session. Each week left us wanting to do the next week there and then... I fully recommend this course to those who want more than just church on Sunday. God bless and enjoy Darren

 The group have found the course very thought provoking and informative. There have been good discussions and we have all grown a great deal.
The group now want to go on to something else!

Needed books for our course

 I ordered the books from you because you could get them to me quickly for our Grow and Go course and they arrived on time all in perfect condition. We are doing this once a fornight so we are still on the course. Its very good easy to follow and you have homework too, which keeps you at it
So thanks for your good service its appreciated.
