Description

We all dream of a better world—a world of security, plenty and friendship. Christians believe that God promises just such a new world. And the Bible is the story of what God had done and what he will do to keep that promise.

The World We All Want is for people who are interested in discovering the message of the Bible. It is an introduction to the whole Bible story—the story Christians believe to be the story of our world and its future. And as you start to see how wonderful God’s story is, you’ll also start to see how his story can become yours as well.

The seven presentations on this DVD by course authors Tim Chester and Steve Timmis can be used as introductions or summaries when running the course in a small or large group. It also includes an animation of the entire Bible story that is followed in the course.

Please note, this DVD is available in NTSC format only.

A leader's guide is also available in ebook format.

What makes The World We All Want unique:

- The Bible story: The World We All Want presents the gospel through the Bible story. It presents the biblical worldview that people need if they are to understand the work of Christ. Moreover, retelling the Bible story offers an engaging way of presenting the gospel to people today.

- A community: Often presentations of the gospel are individualistic, focusing on an individual's relationship with God. It then becomes difficult to teach people about the church except in functional terms or terms than contradict the message of grace. The focus of the Bible, however, is on God's plan to create a people who are his people. The World We All Want focuses on the communal nature of gospel in a way that naturally integrates the church into the message of the gospel.

- A point of connection: The course begins by engaging with people's desire for a better world, showing how God promises such a world in the Bible and how Jesus gave us a glimpse of that world. This provides a natural point of contact with people; a common aspiration. It establishes at the beginning of the course a reason why the Bible story is so important. As the course develops, however, it makes it clear that this world cannot be human-centered, it must be God-centered.

The World We All Want has been designed so that it be used one-to-one, in small groups or 'Alpha-style'. It is ideal to use before or after other courses like Christianity Explored and Alpha. The course is already being used with people of different nationalities, different social classes and different ages from Aberdeen in Scotland to Tasmania in Australia.

Commendations

A biblically-faithful, gospel-rich, culturally-sensitive presentation of the good news. This approach by Chester and Timmis captures both the beauty of the story and the urgency of the invitation.

One of the most frustrating things as we try to evangelize and disciple our friends is material to assist the journey. Steve and Tim have assisted us greatly with a resource that is biblical, practical and gospel-centered.

Customer reviews

“Good and thought provoking”

We have used this course on a group of retired people and it seemed to hit the level at where the people are. The course has been the means for a great deal of discussion over coffee.

“Highly Recommended”

(Review written for 'The World We All Want')

This is an engaging study that causes the reader to think about the big picture presented in the Bible. I've used it in a 121 context with a believer and it promoted discussion on all sorts of topics, as well as upon foundational matters facilitated by the study questions.

“Excellent”

(Review written for 'The World We All Want')

We have been running this course at our church for a number of years and the book makes it really easy. It is also a brilliant overview of the Bible for seekers, starting with common agreement about what a perfect world would be like, then showing that this is exactly what the Bible promises, how Jesus has the power to bring it about, and how the rest of the Bible fits in. We love it.
