A Week of Reviews…Day 4
About the Restless DVD: “In Restless, an 8-session, video-based small group Bible study, Bible study teacher and author Jennie Allen helps you discover a practical plan to identify the threads of your life and how to weave them together for God’s glory and purposes.
Restless explores this important question: ‘Do I matter?’ And Jennie asks, ‘We live with lots of things, lots of people…but do we live for something?’
Using the story of Joseph, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, story, and relationships fit into the greater story of God-and how your story can do the same. She also introduces Threads – a tool to help you see your own personal story and to uncover and understand the raw materials God has given you to use for his glory and purpose.
Filled with practical tools and biblical teaching, Restless will equip you to:
Make sense of the seemingly random relationships and activities of life
Redeem life’s hurts and scars
Place your story in context with God’s greater story
Designed for use with the Restless Participant’s Guide.” – Amazon.com
Review: The appeal of Jennie Allen is that she has an uncanny way of simplifying and personalizing every Biblical message in such a way that others can see themselves more clearly. Her tone, her words, her brutal honesty all reveal a desperate hope for God.
In Allen’s Restless DVD, viewers will experience an intimate conversation with Jennie and her friends. They will be faced with questions about life. They will have to define and deal with self. They will discover the power and influence of God as it relates to life purpose and meaning.
Recommend: This DVD is definitely a rich and meaty resource and would be of great benefit to anyone interested in getting real with who they are. I would recommend it, as I believe it speaks in a very truthful and much needed way. I would offer, however, that it would be ideal to have it coupled with the study guide.
A complimentary copy of this DVD was provided by Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review. The words I have shared are my own.
