Disciple I Fast Track

Average Review (1)

Published by Abingdon Press

Description Disciple Fast Track, an adaptation of the original, bestselling Disciple Bible Study, provides a viable option for busy people seeking comprehensive engagement over time with the entire biblical text. Fast Track groups meet for a total of 24 weeks, devoting 12 weeks each to the Old Testament and the New Testament. Participants read a manageable 3-5 chapters of the Bible daily in preparation for the weekly meetings, which last approximately 75 minutes. A separate Leader Guide provides group facilitators with step-by-step instructions for leading each week’s session without any extra preparation.

A brief, illustrated review video enables participants to recall important facts and ideas; lively and engaging video presenters then offer insights into the current week’s session. Participants have the opportunity to take a spiritual gifts assessment and determine meaningful ways they can serve and live out their discipleship commitment. They also have opportunities for celebrations marking their completion of the Old and New Testament components of Disciple Fast Track. The flexible resources work well with groups of a few participants up to 100.

Overall Review
Like the full Disciple I Bible Study, Fast Track is a highly transformational vehicle. It is valuable to those who have already read through the Bible, but is especially helpful for those who have never read the Bible in its entirety. Faithful completion of the study allows participants to become familiar with Scripture, its message and its context.
