Comparison of A Call to Joy Discipler’s Guide and Timothy’s Guide
In a book to book comparison, you’ll notice that your Discipler’s Guide (shown on the left) expands each page of the Timothy’s Guide (shown on the right) into two pages. This enables you to have boxed “teaching notes” to guide your discussions. This design allows your Discipler’s Guide to have the same page numbers as the Timothy’s Guide.
As you view the Discipler’s Guide, you will notice that some of the material is boxed and other parts are not. The boxed material appears only in your Discipler’s Guide while the unboxed material appears in both the Timothy’s Guide and Discipler’s Guide. The boxes contain “teaching notes” (illustrations, amplifications, and questions) to be shared and discussed during each session.
You will teach from this Discipler’s Guide during your times together. The unboxed material should be read aloud during each session. If your Timothy is comfortable reading aloud, you should ask them to join you in verbally reading this material. This involvement will help them feel like a participant, and it will give you additional time to think ahead for each discussion segment. When you arrive at a box in your Discipler’s Guide, simply give the illustration or amplification. If indicated, ask the questions found in the boxes and use a “highlighter” to mark the key words. This will help “trigger” your thoughts for discussion.
