Here are 100 adaptable discussion starters . A brief story, usually factual, is followed by a series of provocative questions. 100 double-page spreads contain a story on the left-hand page and questions on the right. Stories explore a topic pertinent to young people, e.g. drugs, truancy, parental relationships; or an important biblical concept, e.g. giving, the afterlife, love. Questions begin with general discussion and move on to what the Bible has to say. Extra questions are included for use with unchurched young people. The last 25 discussion starters provide a journey through the main stories and themes of the Bible. The book is supplied with a CD-ROM, containing question sheets for all the stories to help with small group discussions.
