NEXT in the Unbinding the Gospel Series. With 40 day personal prayer journal. For small groups ready to invite... Unbinding Your Soul is the unbinding model for actual, invitational evangelism. Typical mainline churches get ready for the Unbinding Your Soul small group study with Unbinding the Gospel/Unbinding Your Heart pre-evangelism. SOUL helps them invite unchurched friends or recent visitors to try an experiment (some churches call it a test drive ) of Christian faith and community. Many people who aren't connected with a church would love to try a no-obligation experiment of substantial spiritual discussion, prayer, and community. Unbinding Your Soul prepares church members to invite their friends into a four-week small group experience with short study chapters, an individual prayer journal, prayer partner activities, and group exercises. Unbinding Your Soul works for: Growing, healthy churches, Churches that have done an all-church saturation study with the Unbinding the Gospel Series, New church starts, New members' classes, and On fire groups in typical churches. Note: Two copies will be needed per small group participant. Participants pray for the person to receive the extra book. Groups double. The Unbinding the Gospel Series is in over 12,000 congregations across the theological spectrum. The Christian Century, Alban Institute Congregations, Evangelism Connections, 8 heads of denominations, Brian McLaren, George Hunter & Richard Peace have endorsed it enthusiastically. The Series arises out of the only major national study of evangelism in mainline churches, funded by the Lilly Endowment. From the Unbinding the Gospel Series.
