This is a ten star production! Orthodox Christianity is sadly the best kept secret in the West, and even in its homelands where it is too often thought of as a cultural artifact and not the life-giving Truth of reality. The Way is a fundamental resource aimed at correcting this by giving seekers and teachers a one-stop resource that has thought of everything. When I say everything is thought of, I mean it. A set-up disc has all media needed to promote and run your 12 sessions on the Faith, with the idea that each session starts with a blessing, common meal, followed by a presentation, group discussion and a share-out led by a moderator/teacher, concluding prayer, etc. The first disc has a 52 page pdf of flyers, a menu with the cookbook (fast-friendly), all the handouts that go with the topics, color icons that can be printed off, and much much more, making this a catechetical cornucopia!
The 12 sessions, on 4 discs, center around the key points that seekers or the generally interested would need to consider when approaching the Faith. Each disc comes with printout capabilities of attractive icons correlating to the discussion topics, a very professional student handout that summarizes each sessions points in detail (in fact it is really a small book you could print off, with illustrations), and a 45 minute dvd of a noted theologian delivering the talk. Of course you could mix it up and deliver the talk yourself, if you feel comfortable and confident enough.
Here are the topics of the 12 sessions: The Search for Faith; God the Lover of Mankind; Being Human- Fully Alive; Why did Jesus Come to Us?; Salvation; The Holy Spirit; Isn't God enough? Why the Church?; Divine Liturgy; The Holy Mysteries (Sacraments of the Church); Bible, Prayer and Fasting; Christian Behavior; Heaven on Earth. The speakers are very engaging and you will not be bored at all.
Note that even though this is designed as a group presentation, it would also be an excellent resource for individuals given the lecture format and printouts. Every parish should have this on hand for that reason as well.
Simply put, this is THE BEST multimedia presentation of Christianity for groups that I have ever encountered, in any Christian form. May it reach many hearts and minds!
As an aside, I am struck that the cover art on the box set says "How to Run the Way" when in reality the box set is the whole thing, not just the first how-to disc. So dont be put off or confused.
