Here's what we recommend for the Band of Brothers study series:
- Wild at Heart—book (old or new edition will work just the same)
- Band of Brothers Participant Guide
- Band of Brothers DVD series
The ideal approach would be to have each man read the corresponding chapter in Wild at Heart and do the work in the Participant's Guide before you meet. The Participant's Guide contains about 120 pages of questions, ideas to discuss, and prayers to be used.
When your group gathers, you can watch the video series for the week and discuss. The video series is presented in eight parts, each about 35 minutes long. You could do this study in eight weeks, or, because the content is prone to generate good discussion, and the leader may be inspired to throw in some other movie clips or linger on specific sections, it could easily last longer. And there are several other ideas for the logistics of leading a group listed in the facilitator's guide that comes with the Band of Brothers DVD.
The Field Manual is also available and is a lengthier text with more questions to process and places to explore with God than the Participants Guide. Designed for personal use as a companion to the book Wild at Heart, it guides you through deeper, further study than most groups have time for.
