Adam Hamilton presents a generous, inspiring vision of eight Christian denominations and faith traditions. Comparing the Christian family to our own extended families, he contends that each denomination has a unique, valuable perspective to offer on the Christian faith.

The traditions included in this eight-week video-and-print study are Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Pentecostalism, and Methodism. For each group, Hamilton gives a brief history, outlines major beliefs, and describes some things we can learn from that tradition to strengthen our own Christian faith. As part of the study, he interviews a religious leader from each tradition.

The Leader’s Guide includes:

Flexible session formats, to accommodate shorter or longer meeting times
Helpful hints for facilitating group sessions
Step-by-step session plans for each week, including goals, prayers, Scripture, discussion questions, activities, key insights, notable quotes, and leader “extras”
Reproducible handouts for participants to take home and use during the week
