Book Study Guides for “Forming Intentional Disciples”

Interested in organizing or structuring a discussion centered on Sherry Weddell’s Forming Intentional Disciples within your parish, staff, ministry, friends, small group, or faith formation setting?

The great news is, there are lots of free examples of study guides online. Two in particular stand out to me:

First, this chapter-by-chapter (including the Introduction) from Lawn Chair Catechism at CatholicMom.Com, available here as a .pdf download. The questions aren’t so numerous as to be intimidating, and each one-page handout contains a nice summary and key quotes from the chapter, so if members of your group get behind in reading (or maybe aren’t enthusiastic at all about reading the book), this is a practical way to keep them involved in the discussion.

Second, from the Archdiocese of Baltimore, comes this discussion guide. The questions are a bit more in-depth and presume familiarity with the book. It’s great for a guided discussion to help people reflect on how Forming Intentional Disciples aligns with their personal and community experiences.

  1. St. Antoninus Parish Book Club is reading Sherry Weddell’s best-selling book, Forming Intentional Disciples. We’re taking it one chapter at a time all summer long. Our goal is to use it as a teaching tool for equipping everyone in our congregation to become enthusiastic and intentional disciples.
