Connections: The Gathering Place

When a creative formational resource crosses my path, I want to share it with you.

Such is the new “Gathering Place” series published by Wipf and Stock.  My longtime friend and colleague, Dr. Daryl Smith, originally envisioned the series, small-group resources that he wanted to be used as easily in a sports’ bar as a Sunday School room.

In fact, the series is aimed to interest unchurched folks, engaging them in safe but significant conversations about life and the place of faith in it.

The series has launched with four volumes: (1) Overloaded by Daryl Smith, (2) God in Story by Brian Babcock and others, (3) Discovering Faith by David Solano, and (4) Jesus, Man Behind the Story by Daryl Smith. Other volumes are forthcoming.

Check them out at, under the “Resource Publication” section of the website…or…at
