This was the most helpful, practical, how-to book on leading a small group that I have ever read. It is faithful to the heart of the New Testament church model, realistic in its recommendations, and exceedingly practical and encouraging.

I'd like to return to these two chapters on a regular basis.
Chapter 4 is perhaps the best and clearest material I've come across for how to prepare a Bible study.

Very practical guide for creating Bible-led small groups. Will be referencing the "Mapping the Study" chapter for good group discussion questions.
