LOOKING FOR SOMETHING INSIGHTFUL FOR A CHRISTIAN BIBLE STUDY?
“With wit and vulnerability, Paul Schlieker explains why fulfillment and meaning can only be found in a loving relationship with the God who created us. Each lesson clearly articulates an important theme, illustrated with fascinating real life stories and supporting Scriptures.
The Response Questions at the end of each chapter are well crafted to generate open discussion and personal discovery; and the Personal Assessments are outstanding tools to help you get honest with yourself and God.
What's Missing Inside You? is an excellent resource for those who are seeking answers to the most important questions in life. But it's also a fresh, compelling study for seasoned believers, going beyond doctrinal formulas to help us rediscover Jesus Christ as first love.
This study inspires us to respond to God's love, to find our value and self-esteem in Him, and to follow Jesus into the corner of the world where we live and love the people we find there. If you're looking for something new and fresh and insightful for your small group, this is it.

VERY GOOD STUDY FOR NEW AND MATURE CHRISTIANS
As a Bible Study leader with 30+ years of experience I found this book to touch some key areas. We are living in a post-modern generation and this series of studies are geared directly to that generation. We need more small group Bible studies like this one! This is one you MUST have on your shelf for Christians who need basic grounding in Christian beliefs.

A GREAT READ FOR BOTH SEASONED BELIEVERS AND THOSE JUST BEGINNING THE SEARCH
The first few chapters of What's Missing Inside You? do a great job of laying the foundation of faith...who is God, what's important to Him, who is man, how he was created with a need only God can fill, how sin separated us from God and our need for Jesus. "The goal of the gospel is not just to get you out of hell and into heaven, but to get God out of heaven and back into you."
I LOVE chapters 7 and 9 about the Person of the Holy Spirit. I think, for maybe the first time, I understand who the Holy Spirit is and His role in my life. The last chapter lays out our role in God's mission. Paul's teaching is clear and the illustrations are powerful. What's Missing Inside You? is a helpful read for believers who thought they had it all figured out and for those with little exposure to Christian beliefs.
PERFECT FOR SMALL GROUP CURRICULUM
I highly recommend What's Missing Inside You? by Paul Schlieker. I have read it, highlighted it and put red stars by the most significant points that stood out to me in each chapter. The discussion and assessment questions after each chapter help bring the reader to the point of personal application.
I cannot think of any area of my life that would not be touched in some way by the principles of Christian beliefs shared.
I was especially moved by the chapter entitled, "The Forgotten One", and continue to think and study about the Holy Spirit's role in my life. Now when I awaken each morning I start the day by praying, "Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me."
I have taken four different study groups through What's Missing Inside You? Members of those groups have used the book for groups they lead as well.
Because of the powerful style of writing and the personal discussion and assessment questions, this book is well-suited for small group study. What's Missing Inside You? will help you impact others, whether in your home, your office or your church.
I strongly believe that if you can read it, you can lead it.
WHY THIS STUDY WORKS
When I was 13 years old, my family and I took a vacation to the east coast. It was the first time I had seen the ocean. What was fun about it, was that my brother and two young sisters and I could all play in the same body of water. My brother and I could body surf in the big waves without touching the bottom and my younger sisters could play at the edge in the ankle-deep water.
The reason I use this illustration is because this book allows me to take someone into ankle-deep water spiritually, or take them out into the water that's 30,000 feet deep. The lessons are very practical, hard-hitting, and relevant to a believer or non-believer.
This is the only resource I've found like this and I use it all the time. It's a great tool!

INSPIRATIONAL CHRISTIAN STORIES AND SCRIPTURES EACH WEEK
We used this book for a women's Bible study with about 24 women. The group was very diversified in age as well as in spiritual maturity. It was wonderful to read true stories each week and the scriptures that supported the key Christian beliefs concept.
Sharing the individual response questions at the end of each chapter helped us connect and support each other in our daily "life" experiences. Our class was also made up of women who came from different backgrounds and church affiliations.
As we shared our lives and learned from the lessons each week, we began to understand why Paul Schlieker wrote, "The Church is God's people, led by God's Spirit, to accomplish God's mission." I highly recommend this study!

NOW I KNOW WHAT'S MISSING
As a lifelong Roman Catholic familiar with Jesus and basic Christian beliefs, I was still asking, "What's missing?" Now I know.
