Absolutely superb! Simplicity and ease of use characterise this new course about Jesus. Everything is uncluttered with an economy of words. I’ve been secretly longing for a course better atuned to many of the folk around our table - this is it!

I'm thrilled about the new Universal edition of Christianity Explored. It features everything people love about the main course, which is at heart a desire to allow Mark's Gospel to speak for itself and the Lord Jesus to walk off its pages, with a simplicity of language and ease of use which makes it accessible to an even wider range of people.

“Great resource”

A thoughtful selection of studies in Mark's gospel, nicely formatted and structured, a great resource to use where English is a second language.
The ebook version has been particularly helpful when running a virtual group over Zoom.

“Useful for our bilingual Bible study group.”

(Review written for 'Christianity Explored Universal Handbook')

It's nice to have a small and inexpensive study guide we can use with students in a bilingual Bible study (English and Japanese). The introduction page and the map are helpful for newcomers. The side notes and "Bible Words" are helpful too, although some of the definitions use somewhat difficult words to explain other difficult words.
We use a bilingual Bible when we read the scripture passages, and we also watch the Christianity Explored presentations on DVD. This seems to be working well. Since the DVD presentations move very quickly, it's a bit hard for some of the students to take it all in while they are watching and reading subtitles at the same time. Having the universal handbook helps them focus on main points (although the content of the Handbook does not always follow the sequence in the DVD presentation exactly).
The members of our group have a fairly high level of English proficiency--in reading especially. For students who are not so comfortable reading English, this text would probably be difficult.

“Very Helpful”

(Review written for 'Christianity Explored Universal Handbook')

We are using the handbooks in a weekly homegroup made with international students in France. The Universal version is very useful for sharing the gospel with clear words and with people not fluent in English. Thank you for this support!

“limited use”

(Review written for 'Christianity Explored Universal Handbook')

We haven't used it so far although we are running a C.E course using the previous material.
This is because :- We like the DVD presentation and feel it is a really good tool so were disappointed that the Universal doesn't include it, (although we appreciate it can be used we thought it makes it longer and not as streamlined.)
;- one of our leaders thought the print size & paleness of the type might make it difficult for some with reading disabilities and the were still a lot of words per page.
We think maybe it would be a good tool to use as a standalone Bible study and liked its simplicity.
We are now running our 3rd course (6 monthly intervals) and have seen the Lord save lives through each course.
thank you
