Each participant in the Best of Small Groups Volume 1 DVD study will need a study guide. The study sessions consist of listening to a teaching segment of the DVD and then discussing the material covered. The twelve sessions are taught by Christian leaders John Piper, Erwin McManus, Francis Chan, Don Piper, Mark Driscoll, Randy Alcorn, Gary Smalley, Max Lucado & Randy Frazee, Chip Ingram, Kerry & Chris Shook, Miles McPherson, and Kyle Idleman. At the end of each session is a section titled 'More Information about This Study.' It includes bibliographic and availability notes for the larger study from which each sample session is taken, as well as information about companion books and resources that accompany the full study.
