Intended for a mixed group of believers and non-believers, this small group discussion booklet explores the existential issues central to our life, our world, and today’s college student: concepts like isolation, reconciliation, meaning, value, truth, and God. How do you launch into such weighty subjects? Center the conversation on the great artists and masterpieces of the western world: The Scream by Munch, Mona Lisa by Da Vinci, Return of the Prodigal Son by Rembrandt, among other works. The paintings surface the universal cries of the human heart and ultimately lead the discussion to our need for a Savior. Paintings reproduced in full-color, looks and feels like a museum piece.

Stripped is divided into 6 sessions, each exploring a different issue raised by the painter’s work: Meaning & Purpose; Isolation; Love & reconciliation; Perceptions of Jesus; What is Good?; and The Naked Soul.

Facilitator’s notes are in the back of each discussion booklet. A more in-depth facilitators guide can be downloaded below under Additional Training. You’ll need a copy of Stripped for each group member.
