Beautifully designed leader's kit containing everything you need to run this visually stunning outreach course.
Part of the Life Explored series.
Life Explored is an exciting new way to share the gospel in today's highly visual culture. Developed by Christianity Explored Ministries, the seven interactive sessions are based on stunning videos shot all over the globe.
Life Explored will help people uncover what they’re really living for, and shows how, in Christ, God meets our deepest desire for happiness. Each session explores an aspect of God’s character. We see that the God of the Bible is good, trustworthy, generous, liberating, fulfilling, life-giving and joyful. And ultimately we see that the greatest pleasure in life is enjoying God himself.
This exciting, new outreach course can be run before or after Christianity Explored or Alpha and is perfect for anyone looking for answers to life's big questions. It will also provoke good discussions among those who know and love Jesus.
This Leader's Kit contains everything you need to run your course - a leader's handbook, a guest handbook, a DVD and a code to download digital copies of the video sessions, giving you flexibility to run it one-to-one, or in larger groups; in churches, or in homes.

Endorsement written for Life Explored Handbook
At a time in the Western world when basic knowledge of the Bible is increasingly rare, it is a pleasure to recommend Life Explored. Here is an introduction to the good news found in Jesus Christ, sweeping through some of the "big pictures" in the Bible. As far as a short series can, Life Explored outlines what the Bible is about, exposes our idolatry, and makes clear where forgiveness and hope lie. This is one of the best of the rising number of evangelistic tools addressing men and women in the twenty-first century.
Creative format. Beautiful cinematography. Faithful and fresh gospel presentation. I wish I could share the gospel as well as they do!"
It may be more challenging to provoke the right questions than it is to offer good answers. Life Explored meets that challenge with success. Integrating superb film clips with basic questions and a Leader’s Handbook to guide discussion, Life Explored makes evangelism more engaging in small groups. It definitely takes away the ‘eek’ factor for both leaders and participants. I look forward to using Life Explored in my own evangelism and recommending it to others.
The video talks and Bible passages take us on a simplified journey from Genesis to Revelation. This is very helpful, especially when seeking to share the gospel with people starting from zeero Bible knowledge. … This is a terrific package for the 21st-century world. … I'm already thinking of who I could introduce to Christ through Life Explored.... continue reading
Life Explored is a tremendous course that really meets people where they're at in life. It hits the big targets of life with how the gospel truly fulfils them and the course does so in a relevant way.
The material explores the main themes of life and gives people a clear understanding of the Gospel, inviting the hearer to think in their own lives without attacking or judgmental words.
I've run this 3 times now and each time it's been very helpful for those doing the course, which basically shows how Jesus is far better than anyone/thing else we love and worship (which everyone does). Yes, like any course, it is best to adapt it to your context rather than just use it "straight out of the box". But it doesn't take too much work to tweek a few questions or add in some conversation after the first video if people are likely to be confused. Well produced.
Excellent service. Great material. Highly recommended.
Found the material engaging and flexible. The stories are good but a few had quite sombre background music.
Excellent material, definitely God inspired! Very thought provoking for Christians as well as an outreach tool Professional standard, challenging, the Truth being clearly explained but in a different way. Would highly recommend.
We found this material to be really excellent. We love how it challenges the view of a God who is austere and far off and instead through reflective video clips, clear presentations and interactive bible studies reveals a God who runs towards us and wants intimate friendship with us.
When I initially found out about this course, I expected it to be good and certainly the part 1 videos are very well produced. However reading through the course material and the transcripts of the part 2 videos makes me feel like this is two courses smashed together. The public videos are one course and the material in the handbooks is the other with the part 2 videos being used as some messy glue to connect them together. The bible passages used in the handbooks provide a good overview of the Bible message but almost should be done without the glossy videos. Alternatively if you like the glossy videos you might want to identify bible passages that match up with them rather than the ones in this book and do a course that way.
A questionnaire was produced for a group of around 25 people. Generally, they were undecided as to whom the course would benefit the most - as a Christian Basics Course or as a Discipleship Course. Film Clips. Far more people benefited from the 2nd film clip than the 1st. There were real and genuine problems for many in understanding the 1st film clip and to show just the 2nd clip would not work because it refers constantly to the 1st clip.
Bible Study Material. The vast majority of people found great value in the Bible studies, questions and discussions and were also challenged in their Christian commitment and lifestyle.
This is a superb resource: well-presented and engaging. I would echo previous reviewers' comments that it would be good to have at least one female speaker, and that it might help leaders to have some notes 'explaining' the 'films' - though these have certainly been very thought-provoking for our youth group.
