Intersect DVD ~ Kregel Publications

This dvd study is based on 5 different videos on certain subjects, expectations, rest, disappointment, trust and control.  Each video is approximately about 5 minutes long.  The study is not a heavy bible teaching, it is a very light study about how GOD is in your life everyday and you make the choice to accept him in your life.  This is not a study for the group being all believers, it is geared towards the leader being a believer and the others are non-believers.

I liked the use of normal people telling their stories, however, I was a little disappointed that it didn't have more bible basis and scripture to lead people on the word of GOD.  The video is used as only a tool and not for the teaching, the teaching is expected to come from the questions (provided in a booklet that comes with the dvd) and the discussions that come after the video.  I see this as also being used at the beginning of a sermon, with the sermon being about the subject discussed in the video.  I could recommend this for small home groups and as a tool as a lead into a Sunday sermon.  I wouldn't recommend this as a heavy bible based study group.
