Kingdom of Fools Discussion Guide

A month with the Kingdom of Fools

Discussion material to accompany the the book, Kingdom of Fools

Kingdom of Fools is an historical look at the Early Church. The book follows the New Testament book of Acts and the letters of Paul – but also takes alot of a lot of information from extra-biblical sources to find out what the church was like, who was in it, and why we should learn about it.

On this page you can download a four-part discussion guide for homegroups/churches/Bible study groups/small secret meetings of cult members. (Delete those which don’t apply). Each session explores different aspects of life in the early church using some of the material in the book. Each topic is accompanied by a video, a  Bible passage, discussion questions and a prayer taken from the writings of the early church.


With the help of my publishers, Hodder Faith, these resources are ABSOLUTELY FREE. But I – and they – would really like it if you bought the book!

How it works

There are four sessions, each of which has an accompanying video which can be viewed here, or on my vimeo channel:

Each session, all you have to do is…

1. Show the video

2. Read the Bible

3. Look in the book

4. Have a coffee

5. Chat about it using the discussion questions.

6. Pray.

7. Take away something to think about and do during the following days.

That’s all there is to it. And let’s face it, you can do the coffee bit in any order.
