In six dynamic sessions featuring host Bono and several well-known Christian leaders, Christians will explore the critical social needs facing our "neighbours" and be challenged to become a Good Samaritan right now, right where they live.
Becoming a Good Samaritan is a six-session small group Bible study like no other. Prepare to have your eyes opened, your heart stirred, your vision kindled, and your faith focused and invigorated like never before! Love your neighbour.
Change the world... It starts with you, today. The homeless man wandering your streets. The disenfranchised roaming your neighbourhood. The sick and forgotten pushed to the edge of your town. Let's get to work! In partnership with World Vision, Becoming a Good Samaritan is an unprecedented initiative that helps Christians live out Christ's love in world-changing ways, right now, right where you live.
This Participant Guide will help you explore issues like poverty, social injustice, pandemic diseases, the environment -- and teach you how to start making a personal, street-level impact today. Inside are discussion questions, radical but common sense ideas, and personal applications to help you live out your faith in ways that will change the community around you.
On the companion DVD, you'll find John Ortberg hosting six emotionally packed sessions featuring Christian leaders like Eugene Peterson, Philip Yancey, Matthew Sleeth, Jim Cymbala, Chuck Colson, Joni Eareckson Tada, Rob Bell and many others.
