If you are pioneering a new bible evangelistic bible study, or maybe leading an existing one, you may be trying to figure out how to ask effective questions to have deeper conversations.
This week, I purchased this 62 page eBook of Questions (secret: $15 if you use the last last link at the bottom of the page, not $19 as it says on the sales page today) and found it very useful for
- Sunday School teachers,
- Small group leaders,
- Bible study leaders,
- House Church Leaders,
- Missionaries pioneering new groups.
Some of these questions will help your evangelism discussions as well with seekers in your groups.
The author also points out which questions would be good for mature believers, seekers, youth, children.
How I would use this
Now, because of copyright issues, I’m not allowed to give you the 52 questions directly.
However, I can share with you one of my favorite questions in this bunch:
Is there anything you wish the biblical author had included in the story? Why do you think this was not a part of Scripture?
I can imagine using that with some seekers who might be looking at the biblical text for the very first time. They might ask questions of the text that we long time Christians hadn’t thought of.
It might also reveal an insight into their spiritual thirst.
That is what I’m looking for when having bible studies for seekers. Spiritual thirst allows me to tap into what God is doing in that person’s life to draw that one to Himself.
Here is another one:
What are the surface issues that Jesus skips past to get to the heart issue?
Likewise, I could use this question in my discernment of spiritual thirst of a person.
You could rework this question to speak of the prophet or leader or other central character in the text.
As questions get below the surface, answers can potentially reveal what is really in the heart.
As evangelists, spiritual thirst is what we look for.
When I first encountered this ebook, my skeptical mind asked:
“Why would I spend $15 on 52 questions?
I can ask great questions already!
I hope I don’t overpay for a one page text file.”
I took the risk under the 60 day money back guarantee.
I was pleasantly surprised. The 62 page ebook is laid out with one question per page, plus some background as to why that question is effective. The layout gives the author room to tell us how to leverage those questions for specific situations and his experiences in using them.
The 1 per page format is useful for printing out and storing in a 3 ring binder for your study.
I was also impressed with how field-tested these 52 questions are.
Likewise, as I read these questions, I found myself creatively spinning off variants that will help me have more discussions with spiritual seekers. This little ebook spurred some great creativity.
These can be a useful tool in your leadership skills.
