“Great Course - Great Customer Service by The Good Book Company”

Christianity Explored is a course I highly recommend, while it does assume some basic bible knowledge it is a good introduction to Christianity, and will get participants reading the bible. We use The Good Book Company whenever possible because they offer really good value for money combined with great customer service. Their staff go the extra mile to assist whenever possible. Highly Recommended

“Excellent for seekers ”

This DVD course is excellent for seekers or for those recently come to faith. I have used it about 6 times now, and each time have seen adults move into faith as a result ... brilliant
The DVD quality and presentation by Rico is second-to-none, and winsomely presents Christ in a way that doesn't avoid the hard truths, but is very sensitive to those who are unsure
The books are excellent too. My only 'criticism' is not so much to do with content, more to do with experience with groups
1. Very few will do the 'homework', so we miss a lot in the studies, as so much is covered in the book that cannot be covered on one night/week
2. For people 'outside the Faith', the fact that we don't go consecutively through the Gospel of Mark, is very confusing, when they have no experience of studying the Bible. I have no problem jumping from reference to reference, but this is foreign to the people who attend our course

I wonder if, when considering a future edition, you would think of a different approach, taking these two points into account - making it more accessible and understandable to those who are on the edges?

Please do not take this as negative, as I've found this an excellent course and will continue to use it. Thank you. God bless

“Very Good”

We have all found the handbook very comprehensive and very helpful. Owing to a lack of folk taking up our offer of the course we haven't really been able to assess how others have found it.

“An excellent, flexible tool for introducing people to our beautiful Saviour”

We have run at least one Christianity Explored course every year for the last few years. We've run it in our home and have found that the open format of the course, allows for a relaxed 'exploring' of who Christ is. It is very non-threatening, which we like. Many of those who we've had on the course have never opened a Bible in their whole life (we often have to explain how the Bible is constructed before we start - but that's not a problem that's part of the exploration), but by creating an atmosphere in which no question is stupid, all have gone away knowing more about Jesus and all He has done for us (even those who never finished the course have had 'light bulb' moments - which is so joyful to see!). Not everyone has come to the Saviour, but we have seen fruit - often many weeks or months after the course has finished. I heartily commend it. On a personal level, I'm blessed every time we lead it, as I'm reminded that we have a Saviour who is worth introducing people to! Thank you the Christianity Explored team.

“Engaging way of introducing Christianity in the neighbourhood”

Whilst we haven't run the course just yet, the materials are excellent and the approach taken makes Christianity very accessible. We are looking forward to putting them into use in a few months time. Many people are so used to seeing very professional presentations these days that having something that may be good but is clearly home-made can put some people off. The DVD and booklets easily overcome this hurdle and allows the doorways for the content to be opened. The content is really the main thing and having the focus firmly on Christ makes things refreshingly direct. We hope that at the very least we'll be able to challenge people over where they stand, and better, with God's blessing, to be able to show the Lord Jesus Christ to people that need to know both who he is and why he is so important.

“Great”

Great that it is now redone to 7 sessions, though I prefer some of version 2's talks.

“Excellent!”

Never having led a new Christians group , we searched for appropriate material, and Christianity Explored was highly recommended by a friend who has used the course on two occasions. We were amazed at professional content and simple presentation, attendees and leaders all greatly blessed
Thank you so much for explaining so simply yet deeply, the Christian beliefs. We are considering using the Discipleship course now as a follow on .

“Very Good”

The course is very well laid out, but does assume some basic Bible Knowledge from the participants which some people in our group really struggled with.

The evidence for the Bible was good, but there was no explanation of what the Bible as a whole was, and in particular anything around the Old Testament which we started referencing in Session 2.

The course is set out well, easy to follow, with good examples, and answers to common questions.
The participants particularly like the videos and feel they are about the right length.

Apart from the a basics guide to the Old Testament, we also had to introduce an additional session on suffering between module 2 and 3 as we didn't feel it was appropriate to look at the material mentioned in Module 3(Sin) without having some awareness on the 10 Commandments, or the most important commandment(s) Mark 12:30.
