Christian Lifestyle is designed to help disciples live out their faith. It includes four short courses exploring some of the fundamental questions about our identity as Christians: Does sin matter? How do I cope with myself? What difference should faith make to my outlook and prejudices? Who am I? 1. Living Images: How can we be fully human? (4 sessions) 2. Overcoming Evil: Does sin matter and can it be overcome (5 sessions) 3. Personal Identity: Understanding ourselves and loving others (5 sessions) 4. Called into life: Living our wholes lives for God (5 sessions) Fully revised and with a new-look front cover, each session has leaders' notes and fully-photocopiable members' handouts. This new edition also includes a FREE CD-ROM that contains handouts and supplementary material for all sessions as PDF files. Ideal as a follow-on from any 'Christian Basics' course.
'Christianity always has been first and foremost a way of life rather than simply a message to be preached. That is particularly vital in today's world where an appeal to authority leaves people cold while an authentic demonstration of what faith means will attract.' - Robert Warren, Emmaus author.
