Book Review: Chase
This 8 week study of the heart of David is really like none other I have even participated in. Each week consists of reading passages in the Bible and reflecting on them, self reflection on deep questions posed by the author, and projects designed to help the reader further identify how to further their relationship with God. The weeks are broken into subjects such as Identify. Similarly to She's God Issues, each day of group study will consist of discussion on homework, a 8-12 minute video, and then an opportunity to go deeper with peers. One thing I really like about this study is that the leader is provided with discussion questions. The stack of many questions are designed for the group members to engage each other with and go deeper with each other.
I believe if a group goes into this study with the desire to develop intimacy with each other and God they will be blown away by how quickly and easily it develops. I do think this study would be great for any Christian regardless of where they are in their relationship with Jesus, but I would also caution you, as with any study, you get out of it what you put into it! Jennie Allen has developed an awesome study in Chase and I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
