This book is excellent. We use it to teach the Gospel to vulnerable adults, many of whom have not encountered the Bible before. The accessibility of the teaching (which has been designed for young people) works very well in this context. We have also used some of the activities and games which have been fun and have helped to illustrate different points. We don't do 'talks' only small group interactive studies so I've had to adapt the talk material myself. It's also slightly confusing having the talks in a separate section at the back of the book. Overall this book has really helped us to explain the Gospel piece by piece in an accessible way - thank you!
This is a really handy resource for both Christian and non-Christian teens in a youth group or church weekend away. Let's you gauge where they're at spiritually and is super clear in explaining the things they may not understand. Solid stuff.
Having used the CE course successfully several times, we bought the CY Nano materials for our young youth group. Sadly, the DVD presentations were wierd (random lights and empty warehouses), and boring (I'm sure Nate is a lovely guy, but someone needs to tell him a joke - he rarely smiles).
The overall result was disappointing and we cannot recommend it - unlike the adult version, where RIco is inspiring. Sorry guys.
Excellent materials - used in secondary school CU
