Discipleship Explored Study Guide
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.
'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.'

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.
Discipleship Explored is just what we were looking for to inspire the whole church to wholehearted commitment to the Lord. Young and old have come out to the course sessions and we are hoping and praying that the results will be lives lived for God.
excellent(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Starter Pack')
Concise and well presented.
The material was excellent...it was, as expected, thoroughly biblical and was very useful for prompting discussion.
The only reservation I would have was the weekly studies. Bearing in mind that the course is primarily aimed at new believers, I found the amount of study very demanding and at times slighly too deep. I would have prefered less.
Not ideal(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Starter Pack')
We're trying to use the Discipleship Explored material with youth as there currently isn't a youth-oriented follow up to Christianity Explored. It's just not ideal, the DVD is a bit of a let down (agree Rico would have been a more engaging presenter), very sombre and bleak considering the exciting subject matter and we're having to put in quite a lot of work to bring out relevant application as the questions just don't stimulate discussion. Perhaps if we were using it with an adult focus we have found it better but it's not really working for us.
Good interactive course(Review written for 'Discipleship Explored Starter Pack')
We are running the "discipleship Explored" course in our church and have been impressed by the clear good teaching combined with excellent study guides and relevant Bible readings with appropriate questions.
