Big Questions for Small Groups

Big Questions for Small Groups is a series designed for small-group discussion but it can also be used for individual reflection.

In each book in the series a different author will focus on one topic and include five questions and answers, followed by questions for the reader to consider.

We encourage you to use the book over five sessions rather than attempting to address all five questions in one session.

You will also find a short listing of additional reading on the topic covered in that book.
