New Study Guides Available for Rich: The Reality of Encountering Jesus

Online study guides are now available for Rich:  The Reality of Encountering Jesus by Peter Dickson with David Gibson. In this book, Dickson and Gibson consider the question, “What does it mean to belong to God’s family?” Applying the Gospel of Luke to a 21st century audience through contemporary illustrations, they demonstrate that encountering Jesus is a matter of urgency for all people everywhere.  In the Rich Course Explanation and Talk Outlines, the authors briefly explain how the six week course and study guides came into being:

The publication of RICH: The reality of encountering Jesus (Christian Focus, 2010), provided our congregation with a tool which we could use in commending the gospel to friends and family, and to others within our parish. We decided to follow the book with a six week course which would invite participants to engage directly with the key issues raised by the book and to think further about the answers which Luke’s Gospel provides.

Each evening adopted a simple format of a meal together, followed by a short talk, discussion around the meal tables, with a chance for questions to the speaker at the end.

We developed a Study Guide and Leader’s Guide for the course and are pleased to make each of them available online for free download and distribution

The guides are available for download in PDF format from
