Convergence: Where Faith and Life Meet *review*

 Frustrations and False Gods: Living in a Fallen World

Convergence is a new DVD series designed specifically for small groups looking for more than just Bible study.  Convergence will examine the intersections between faith and real life with the goal of sparking deeper conversations and stronger community within small groups.

Each DVD features Donald Miller (Blue Like Jazz) facilitating a conversation with another well-known Christian author or speaker about the challenges that Christians face while trying to integrate faith with real life.

Join Donald Miller as he talks with Dan Allender and Tremper Longman (Breaking the Idols of Your Heart, Intimate Allies) and they answer questions about the frustrations and disappointments of life and how the Gospel enables us to live well in a fallen world.

MY REVIEW

I LOVE Convergence!! I am a big Donald Miller fan and I think that having him as the host was a brilliant move. The vast majority of us can easily relate to his super down-to-earth style. Having him talk with Dr. Dan Allender and Dr. Tremper Longman makes them seem far more approachable and that makes for fascinating conversation! The unique format of this study also makes it a heck of a lot more interesting than the average small group curriculum. The DVD also includes a discussion guide with remarkably non-lame questions which I found refreshing.

I was sent the first DVD in the series which addresses questions that we ALL have like

- are Christians supposed to be happy all of the time?
- why is life so unsatisfying?

The answers were practical, easy to understand and totally culturally relevant! I was really very impressed with convergence. I have gone through a TON of small group studies and bible curriculums and I think this one is my new favourite.

Convergence would make a fabulous study for ANY small group or adult Sunday school or college & career study etc. etc. etc.. I definitely recommend checking this one out!!

Thanks so much to Creative Trust Media for sending me a review copy of this DVD.
