Rob Bell’s Nooma Complete Now What?

This Sunday we are doing the last of the Nooma videos in our 20s and 30s class. Those things have been tremendous. If you haven’t seen them yet and work with this age group please do. So what’s next? I had a conversation with Mike, our devo coordinator, last week and he brought up about meeting people lately who really do love Jesus but have a bad impression of the church. I had already been considering working through Dan Kimball’s They Like Jesus But Not the Church material. I think that is the route we are going to take. It is so important to understand where people are coming from and how to change their perceptions of what Christianity/Christians are really supposed to be like.

    If you want to stay in the “hip christian videos” vein, Miller’s Free Market Jesus is a pretty good flick.

    Or there’s this big best-seller going around you might try. We use it sometimes on Sundays… it seems to work pretty well.

    Micah,

    Donald Miller is okay. I think he is a better speaker than author from what I have read and heard so far. I haven’t looked at Free Market Jesus yet but sounds interesting.

    Wes,

    That is a really good series. I purchased it a few months ago and will use it within the next year. Donny Dillon introduced me to that in 2001.

    His stuff on Ecclesiastes is good too (not as good as Song of Solomon, but still good).

    Also, Jon MacArthur’s book Twelve Ordinary Men is really good to take a group through. I highly recommend it: http://www.amazon.com/Twelve-Ordinary-Men-John-MacArthur/dp/0849917735

    Have you seen any of the Crave DVDs or the Wide Awake DVDs? They are available at Best Buy, Amazon.com, or Wal Mart. They feature short films with intros from Erwin McManus. Really good stuff after your time with Dan Kimball’s material.

    Blessings!
