Questions for Jesus Game - Cards Only
by Tony Stoltzfus
54 cards, instructions

The Questions for Jesus Game makes heart-level encounters with Jesus fun! Simply ask Jesus an intimate question, listen for one minute, and then get ready to be delighted as everyone shares the amazing, touching, revelatory things Jesus says! It's easy to hear, because you are asking him about the thing he most wants to talk about: your relationship. You'll ask questions like:

  • "Jesus, what is heaven giving me a standing ovation for today?"
  • "What do you remember about the day I gave my heart to you?"
  • "How is a hug in heaven better than one on earth?"
  • "Jesus, what do you tell the angels that you like about me?"

There are four categories of questions (200 in all) for hours of fun: Desire Fulfilled, For Kids, Offbeat, and Heaven. It's perfect for parties with a purpose, small group encounters, or even to use at the dinner table instead of a perfunctory mealtime prayer.

Heaven's Perspective takes you on an incredible journey of seeing life through a different lens: the eyes of heaven. Seventeen ordinary Christians share intimate stories of their most painful experiences in life--but then Jesus steps in, rewriting their suffering as glory, loss as the fuel for their destiny and filling the deepest desires of their hearts. A mother learns that the son she lost will never experience a day without her in heaven. A missionary harassed by the KGB learns the secret rescue mission Father sent him for, a thrice-divorced woman sees Jesus take her shame away for ever--and much more. You'll learn to reinterpret your own life in the light of glory while you absorb tools for doing the same with others.

This short, practical volume offers a wealth of great tips and techniques for constructing excellent coaching questions. While not a coaching book per se (it is targeted at small group coaches or leaders), How to Ask Great Questionsoffers an in-depth look at many of the bread and butter asking techniques coaches use: open and closed questions, probing questions, asking about what's significant, and bringing out people's inner thoughts and true feelings.

The best feature of the book is that it includes example after example of great questions created for specific scenarios or situations. Any coach (and especially beginners, coaches in training or small group coaches) can benefit from having How to Ask Great Questions handy.
