Our Bible Study group at church is using Andy Stanley's When God as a video to study and discuss. I was in charge of leading the discussion and study for Part 2, so I created this assignment for Part 2 - When God is Uncooperative.

If you teach religion or are using this video as part of a small group Bible study, you owe it to yourself to download the assignment. It starts with a textual analysis section that addresses views of prayer and God's will. The next part includes roughly 20 insightful discussion questions--not the typical reading comprehension questions in most Bible studies.

The download also includes Praise and Worship ideas and several Bible verses to use. It has some notes I made while creating it, too. For example, did you know that Martin Luther promoted conscientious objecting to fighting? (and that's not even part of the main study guide... just one of the extras).

The format is what my wife and I used when we used to lead the group, but now we just take turns leading. If you want to address more than the surface of this Right Now Media video, you can search their site for guides, or you can use this for a fraction of the cost (if you ever find a guide or lessons of any sort). However, you will need an account to view the video.

The study will be done in a Lutheran church, but the video is probably considered non-denominational. You can tweak it for any Christian church or school. The main quotes section includes 10 quotes by Martin Luther. It's relevant because of his role in changing the Christian church for all of us, but you can easily replace some of the quotes with ones from your founding members or other famous Christians (Google search). The analysis will be valid for ANY quote.

Be sure to DISCUSS the discussion questions. Actually, these are good questions, so just ask them and watch people talk. You will suddenly be in charge of the kind of discussion Bible study leaders and religion teachers pray for.

Partial answer key -- lots of opinion questions.
