Six weeks of material for new and growing Christians, including notes on key aspects of faith and daily reading notes to encourage engagement with the Bible
This material was prepared for use with new Christians to introduce them to the most important aspects of Christian belief and practice and to encourage good habits of personal engagement with the Bible, inductive study and fellowship in a group to be taught. It works best over six weeks when there is a weekly group meeting where an expeirenced believer teaches material, with individuals completing a simple study the next day and using the daily reading material on the other five days.
