"It would be well for us to spend a thoughtful hour each day in contemplation of the life of Christ. We should take it point by point, and let the imagination grasp each scene, especially the closing ones. As we thus dwell upon His great sacrifice for us, our confidence in Him will be more constant, our love will be quickened, and we shall be more deeply imbued with His spirit."
As precious as the story of Jesus is to each of us, our daily lives keep us so busy that it's hard to carve out the time we would like to spend learning about Him. It's hard to find an hour--a thoughtful hour--reading and studying the gospel accounts of His life.
That's why this little book, A Thoughtful Hour, by Jerry D. Thomas exists. It is designed to make the thoughtful hour easier, to give a little structure and focus to a study of the life of Christ. Whether you work through the pages as part of a study group or on your own, you will appreciate the fresh approach used to tell the gospel story.
The small group study includes a book each participant. Small groups will study:
The FREE PowerPoint files below include discussion questions from each chapter of the book. The following resources are available from Pacific Press as downloads to make your small group discussion time even more effective.
