Periodically I put together a list of recommended books for my church’s small groups to study. I do this not to prohibit our small group leaders (a.k.a., Navigators) from using other resources, but simply to inform them of helpful studies they might not have thought about otherwise. I also do it because rarely a week goes by where someone doesn’t ask me about a particular study for their group. Because I have had several churches ask for this document, I thought I might post it here for the benefit of others.
There is no question there will be more quality studies left off the list than are on it (so I apologize in advance), but this is merely a starting place for our groups. You will also notice our framework of spiritual formation called the 7G’s. These are the general areas of spiritual growth we emphasize for our people. I have recommended studies for each G, studies for more specific areas within those G’s (graded as well) and a list of Bible book studies.
Hope this can be a helpful resource for you: CCCC Recommended Studies 2010

This is excellent. I hope this gets around to many churches.
Yancey, this list is great! The hardest part of picking a book or study is knowing whether or not it’ll be a good study (as in: not off topic, over our heads or doctrinally ‘weird’).
Wow. What an awesome list.
