Teach about cults and religions without being an expert.
This is the Leader Guide that goes with the 6-session DVD for small groups that wish to know more about the differences between various religions and cult groups, from a Christian perspective. It can be used by itself, but is most effective when used with the DVD, participant guide, and handbook shown below.
