Book Description

30 Dec 2011
Followers of Christ are described in the New Testament as a royal priesthood and inheritors of the kingdom people with incredible potential and enormous responsibility. Yet the selves we see in the mirror are flawed and failing, all too often tongue-tied and terrified. The King s Speech is such a runaway success because it holds that mirror to our world and offers hope of overcoming the difficulties. It shows hope built out of friendship, trust and supportive love, and courage in the face of gathering evil. Lent is traditionally a time for strengthening resolve, bringing believers together in trust and encouragement as they strive to follow their calling. The purpose of this course could be summed up in the words of the King s speech therapist: To give them faith in their voice and let them know a friend is listening. The course provides five group sessions using the film as a starting point along with personal weekly reading exploring more fully the issues raised, and Bible readings to root it in Christian values.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well planned Lent course for house group 4 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Looking for suitable material for a mixed house group that meets the needs of people of different ability can be a challenge.
After looking at a number of other courses for this lent we found that this book is both topical, relevant for different 24/7 lifestyles and callings, and biblically sound.
Looking forward to sharing this book with our group.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Finding a Voice' by Hilary Brand 14 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
'Finding a Voice' is a study course, based on the film: "The King's Speech". It covers important subjects, such as: Overcoming fear, Finding what our vocation is, The Need for Perseverance, and The Gift of Encouragement. Our weekly House Group has thoroughly enjoyed following it and has derived great benefit. The only problem is - I believe that the book is now out of print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 21 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book as part of a Lent course with a small group. The use of the King's Speech film to illustrate how doubts and fears can hold us back, was an excellent idea. The biblical references used show that, as a child of God, we don't need to be led by these fears, but rather by our Heavenly Father, who has given us everything we need to step out in faith and serve him wholeheartedly. The reminders of who we are in Christ are life-changing, and discussing these with others in the group was helpful and encouraging. I would recommend this to anyone who is struggling with a lack of confidence, but also as a whole-church Bible study - I think everyone would grow through applying the truths it contains to their everyday lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 11 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a Lent course with a difference this is the one. Based on the film the King's speech it takes us on a journey with Bertie and the struggles he faced learning to speak in public. Engaging with the scriptures it invites us to find our voice in sharing our faith. A Great study which led to many positive comments and stories from the group I was in.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King's speech has given me a voice! 22 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this in conjunction with the DVD as our lent group in two churches.
Using the book and DVD together worked well (even in a church not used to electronic gizmo's).
The book gives information for running the sessions. It is a bit confusing as it has one set of instructions for using it yourself and one for running as a group. I found I was flipping between the two when planning each week.
One member of the congregation has recently stood up for the church in a local meeting and said afterwards, "I wouldn't have done that before, The King's Speech has given me a voice."
Job done!!!

While it did a good job on the secular side of the film, much more could have been made of the biblical passages and more time given
to discussing the Christian

5.0 out of 5 stars worked very well 1 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We used this book for an ecumenical lent course which was attended by 80 people. You do need to be familiar with the DVD player being used. The leaders notes at the end of the book tell you exactly where to stop and start the DVD clip, using the 'chapters' setting on the DVD so do read that before the session. Only one session uses a clip that doesn't start at the beginning of a chapter but that isn't a problem if you set up it up and pause the DVD in the correct place before the session starts.
