Wholeness & Holiness

Wholeness & Holiness

For years many Christians have been drawn into a belief that abstaining from sex before marriage is the only thing that is required to be labeled as "pure." Wholeness & Holiness addresses this misconception as well as the misconception that biblical purity rules are irrelevant to present-day Christians. Created for high schoolers and young adults, this course will guide students to explore and correct these common misconceptions. Biblical purity is always about the wholeness and holiness of people and communities.

This comprehensive Leader Guide is a digital download that includes detailed leader instructions for facilitating eight Wholeness & Holiness sessions. The course introduction and thorough biblical, historical, and theological background information will support leaders as they facilitate tough and sometimes complicated topics. Each session includes a reproducible Student Sheet.
