Had an opportunity over the weekend to check out Fight, a new study for men from Craig Groeschel. Fight: Winning the Battles That Matter Most is a 5 session, DVD-driven study that I think you’re going to want to take a look at.
Anchored by Groeschel’s dynamic teaching, each of the DVD sessions are about 20 minutes long, on the upper end of today’s attention spans…but still very watchable. Presented in front of a live audience, there are no punches pulled here. This is Craig Groeschel at his most direct.
The study guide includes a video viewing guide, a great set of discussion questions (written by long-time Willow Creek veteran Judson Poling), and an individual activity designed to help capture the key takeaway from the session. A section for personal study is also included for each of the 5 sessions. Designed to be used in conjunction with Groeschel’s hardback by the same title, each of the personal study assignments contain a few insight generating questions that will take the learnings from the group session deeper.
The reading assignment each week is about 30 pages long. but it is an easy-to-read, very attention grabbing exercise. Packed with personal stories and illustrations from the life of Samson, possibly the greatest Bible story for men to understand.
Looking for a campaign that will help the men in your church uncover who they really are–men created in the image of God with a warrior’s heart–and learn how to stand up and fight for what is right? Fight is designed to be used as a church-wide campaign that will do just that. Additional resources are being added to www.fightthebook.com and www.open.lifechurch.tv including downloadable preaching resources, promotional pieces and samples.
Fight is a great addition to the recommended list for men and men’s small groups. If you’re looking for material that will resonate with guys…you really need to check this one out. I like it and I think you will too.
