New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Get Real Leader’s Guide

A Spiritual Journey for Men

Derek Maul • March 2007

BUY Print $7.99

"Sometimes it's tough to accept the truth that God did not create us to take on this world alone. Sure, Jesus, works powerfully in our individual lives. But God typically achieves his most compelling work where two or three—or just a few more—are gathered together."

Maul offers practical suggestions for a 10-week study of Get Real: A Spiritual Journey for Men. This Leader's Guide can be used in a number of ways:

  • with small groups of 6-12 men who meet and study together on a regular basis
  • with Sunday school or continuing education classes, as a guide for preparation and discussion
  • with one or more friends, as a conversational guide
  • as a web-based interactive study, with a virtual group simultaneously addressing the same chapters and the same questions
  • as an individual study companion and prayer guide for deliberate reading

Studying the book Get Real with the assistance of this Leader's Guide will help men grow spiritually and encourage follow-through on the most important commitment of their lives.

Individual copies of Get Real are available here.
