Is there a separate book that I need in addition to the study guide?

No, the only book you need is the Trustworthy study guide. It contains everything you need for your group discussions as well as 5 days worth of homework for each week. If you are a leader, you’ll find a leader guide in the back of every participant study guide.

Do I definitely need the videos?

Yes! There are 6 videos taught by Lysa and filmed in the Holy Land that go along with Trustworthy. The videos range from 14-27 minutes long. If you're an individual doing this study alone, or a leader facilitating the study for a larger group, you need both the 6 videos and the study guide. These two resources work together and you will not be able to do the study without both components. If you would like the DVD (included in the leader kit) that contains all the videos, click here. You will be able to purchase a streaming option for the 6 videos in November.

Does the study guide contain the answers in the back?

No, it does not. However, we put a lot of intentionality in writing the questions with the appropriate Bible verse references where applicable so you’ll be able to answer your questions.

As a leader, will I receive instructions on how to run the study?

Yes, there are clear instructions provided as well as a leader guide within the study guide itself to help you structure your group. Also, because Lysa does all the teaching in each week’s video, your main job will be facilitating group discussions.

Are the videos closed captioned?

Yes, they are.

Can the individual videos be rented?
