Two or More Gathered

For Talks Between Friends

Just as the art of love is not a solitary affair, it make sense that books about communal grace, kindness and love might elicit a desire to talk to other people. After finishing Love: The Foundation (or its coming companion Consciousness and the Unconscionable), readers will likely want to process their thoughts further. The resources on this page are here to help.

Below you’ll find a number of choices to help yourself and groups connect via Bible studies, reading clubs, online resources and more. Also, if you have suggestions for resources we could add, please feel free to reach out to us via our contact page. 

For Your Group

Bible Studies for Love: The Foundation

These Bible Study resources are for youth groups, college clubs, adult forums, for any group that believes that the Bible is too often harnessed to spread hate and should instead be used to spread love. Feel free to download these free guilds to continue exploring how Christian hate has come to eclipse Christian love, Learn how committing to a close-minded, pop-cultural theology often displaces the Biblical example Jesus set for each of us by the life he lived among us.

8-Week Bible Study

This study allows groups to discuss all 14 chapters (88 pgs.) of Love: The Foundation. It explores why entering the Bible with humility leads to wise-love, while reading it with an absence of humility leads to foolishness and hate. It questions why there have always been parts of every society that prefer the later to the former and helps readers explore their own thoughts on how to avoid the darkness and embrace the light.

4-Week Bible Study

This study dives directly into 1 Corinthians and what it means for the Christian walk. It focuses directly on what Paul says God wants from Christians who live in a meritocratic society like ancient Corinth or modern-day America. Participants are welcome to read earilier chapters on their own. But this study begins in chapter 7, just before 1 Corinthians 13 is summarized in the Ten Positive Commandments of Christian Love

Notes for Study Leaders

Are you a pastor, youth group leader, director of Christian studies, or simply looking for a resource that explains in greater depth how to help believers refocus their daily walk on the ten positive commandments of Christian love laid out by Paul in 1 Corinthians 13? Feel free to download these Leader's resource guilds to dive deeper.

Coming Soon: Consciousness and the Unconscionable

Left or right, blue pill or red one, certain you or someone you know is in a cult and sure you're not: How do you know what you know for sure? How do any of us know with certainty that we're right? And if there was a way to know, would we embrace it? Would we even want to know for sure?

That is the question at the heart of my new book, Consciousness and the Unconscionable. Sign up now to be notified when Consciousness is available for purchase.
