Pastors, small group leaders, and church members are equipped to be part of the change process in others' lives through twelve lessons, homework discussion, and "Make It Real" life applications. This self-explanatory Facilitator's Guide gives detailed instructions for leading an individual or a small group through the Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands Study Guide.

"As a pastor, I'm thankful for the Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands Study Guide. We've used it to train dozens of adults in personal ministry. Now members of our congregation regularly dispense biblical counsel to one another over the phone, at a coffee shop, in a living room. As a result, while our church has grown, my counseling schedule has actually decreased because issues and struggles are addressed before they become full-blown problems." ~Ken Brown, Pastor, Community Baptist, New Boston, MI
"When pastors or laypeople ask me for one book to read on biblical counseling, I point them to the excellent work in Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands. This study guide is a sound, thoroughly biblical, and practical guide for biblical counseling. If you are looking for a way to help your congregation understand how to counsel one another with the Word of God, Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands Study Guide will be an immense help to your ministry." ~Deepak Reju, Associate Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist, Washington, DC
"We adopted the Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands Study Guide as a required training curriculum for our ministry team, as it solidly reinforces our shared commitment to an entirely biblical, Christ-centered, discipleship approach in the context of the body of Christ. I'll be forever grateful for how these resources have been used in my own life, and in the lives of so many others, to grasp the lasting change that all of us so desperately desire. Keep up the good work." ~Daniel Gavin, Director, Addictions Victorious
