This is the Leader Guide for the Mystery of God Study Program. It contains the Facilitator Guide, the entire Study Guide, and the Answer Key.
You can watch the DVD and then probe more deeply into Bishop Barron’s message by using the companion Study Guide, which is divided into sections that correspond to each part of Father's presentation. The Study Guide was written by Catholic author, Trent Horn, an apologist at Catholic Answers, compiled under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron. Trent has relevant experience in this area as one of his books is Answering Atheism: How to Make the Case for God with Logic and Charity.
Each section of the study guide provides a detailed commentary on the DVD and “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each section also includes “Questions for Reflection" that help you connect the material to your own life and experience.
For group study, you can present the program in seven 90-minute sessions. Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions. Participants read the commentary in the study guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be accomplished either before or after they view the DVD, as the Commentary in each lesson is very detailed.
The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for group discussion leaders, including the DVDs, lessons, facilitator guide, answer key and prayer cards.
