I cannot believe that What’s Best Next has been out for more than 5 years now. The book continues to sell and I am constantly hearing from people about the impact it has had on them — as well as from people who have just picked it up and are reading it for the first time.
I have exciting news for those who would like to go deeper with the book or go through it as a group experience: we have created a video study and study guide, and they release next Tuesday.
The Video Study
I went to the Zondervan headquarters to record the video sessions last November. I taught through the entire book, doing each chapter as one session. This is one of my favorite things to do. I enjoy writing (usually after it is done), but most of all I enjoy doing speaking events and being able to present on the book through keynotes or workshops.
The video study allowed me to do that in a format that is now accessible for anyone. For each session, I teach on the most importance concepts in the chapter while introducing some new insights as well. These sessions are good to watch as part of a Bible study or church group, or individually.
You can get them as a DVD through Amazon. Since less and less people have DVD players these days, you can also watch them online by taking the What’s Best Next online course at the Zondervan website (releasing next week). If you like, the course also has a couple assignments as part of it, in addition to the videos.
The Study Guide
The study guide is an excellent companion to the videos or just for going deeper with the book itself. Beth Graybill developed the questions and content for each chapter, based on the video sessions and the book. She did an amazing job. I myself have found the study guide to be a helpful review of the book and to provide excellent questions that get me to think more deeply.
So I highly recommend picking up the study guide, whether for yourself or to take a group through in your church, small group, ministry, or workplace!
