Worship in the evangelical tradition is a blend of prepared and extempore contributions. It generally follows a set pattern, but openness to spontaneity is an essential ingredient. As in other traditions, ministers and worship leaders receive very little training in how to lead worship and this book meets a pressing need. A very practical resource, this book offers clear guidelines and a theological framework that genuinely embrace the characteristics of evangelical worship.
This is the companion leader guide to the Feasts of the Bible 6-Session DVD-based Study. It gives the leader everything needed to host this fascinating topic as a Sunday school class, small group, or home fellowship. Leading this study is easy, because all of the teaching is done by Dr. Sam Nadler, the presenter on the DVD. The Leader Guide contains tips for opening each session, how much time to spend on each part of the discussion, additional Old Testament information about types of offerings, the role of the priests, the meaning of Jesus' teaching that he was "Lord of the Sabbath," and Frequently Asked Questions. Includes discussion questions, quizzes, a place to list prayer requests, a calendar of the feasts (they change dates each year) and diagrams and charts for the tabernacle and the feasts of the Lord. Some Christians miss the importance of the biblical feasts, seeing them as merely ""Jewish"" holidays, but Scripture says these are the Feasts of the Lord God established for all people for all time. Now you can connect the Hebrew roots of Christianity and the symbolism that points to Jesus Christ using this6-session DVD-based study, The Feasts of the Bible. This is the ultimate 6-session DVD-based study on the feasts and holidays of the Bible. Dr. Sam Nadler is your guide through the feasts. Brought up in a traditional Jewish home, Sam came to believe in Jesus as Messiah. He served with Jews for Jesus, Chosen People Ministries, and is now president of Word of Messiah Ministries.
