    Again, these have been great. I’m wondering with these studies, are they intended to be a substitute to using the knowing God personally booklets? or are they being used as a follow up to using those? For me, I used the gospel series as a substitute, so instead of my first meeting with students and sharing the entire gospel, we just started right away into the first study. So with this being the case, on this final bible study of the series, I thought it was important to add in at the end a chance for the students to respond to the gospel. We covered the different circles of lives there are with Christ on throne or self on the throne and then which one they want, leading into the discussion on what it means to have a personal relationship with Christ. Also using the question from 0-100% if you were to die tonight, how sure are you that you would go to heaven? Most people using these studies know how to ask these questions anyways where they see fit for their group, but just coming from having girls for the first time involved in anything Cru in a Bible study, I thought it was beneficial to add. Not sure if this feedback helps, but I thought it was important for the first time covering this. Thanks!

      Great comment, Angie. This series is one that we had a few different people write and we weren’t crystal clear on the purpose before we started writing. Some of us wrote with non-Christians as the intended audience. Others wrote as “Christians learning how to share their faith” as the intended audience. The result is a little confusing. We will be revisiting this and rewriting parts of it. The new intended audience will be “Christians learning how to share their faith”. We wanted a study that went a little more in depth on the 4 parts of the gospel so that our students can have a clearer understanding of the gospel. Thanks for your input on the circles. I think it would be good for us to include that in these studies.
