“Excellent book for a Sunday School class and for individual study.
We are using this book for our adult Sunday School class, and it is clearly among the better books we have used. As the leader of the class, I am very glad I chose it, as are all of those who attend. I lead in a Socratic way, wherein I ask questions of class members. These weekly lessons have consistently allowed for excellent discussion. I highly recommend Called to Love, both for class use and individual study.”
