The Study Guide to How People Change challenges and equips participants to live out the gospel in their everyday lives. This course helps people to understand the underlying motivations for their actions and gives them specific, practical help in changing long-standing patterns of behavior so they might grow in love for God and others. Based on principles from their book, How People Change, Tim Lane and Paul Tripp now offer this companion guide for use in church-wide training sessions, small groups, Sunday schools, youth groups, and one-on-one discipleship contexts.
Each of the twelve lessons includes teaching, homework discussion, CPR—Central truth/Personal application/Relational application—detailed illustrations, group discussion guide, and “Make It Real” life applications.
