In 40 Days Through the Book: Philippians Video Guide (study guide sold separately), bestselling author and pastor Mark Batterson guides small-group members through Paul's letter to the believers in the city of Philippi, revealing what the apostle's words meant to his original readers . . . and how they apply to us today. Participants will be encouraged as they listen to Mark's teachings and, through the accompanying study guide, challenged to read the book of Philippians on their own during the forty days they spend together in the study.
The 40 Days Through the Book series has been designed to help believers more actively engage with God's Word. Each study encourages participants to read through one book in the New Testament at least once during the course of 40 days (approximately 6 weeks of meetings) and will provide them with (1) a clear understanding of the background and culture in which the book was written, (2) insights into key passages of Scripture, and (3) clear applications and takeaways from the particular book that participants can apply to their lives. Each study will be recorded in the author's place of residence and will highlight stories and applications that are relevant to his or her ministry in that area.
