• An engaging, six-week, small group study suitable for adults and young adults
• Interactive content written by a well-known Episcopal Church leader, speaker, author, and professor
• Unique “three-track” format allows individual study, small group study, and congregational development

This exciting new six-session DVD study invites small groups and individuals to explore the lives of six Christian “saints” who risked all for the sake of the gospel. Like Jesus, each of the featured leaders were change agents in their times: the Subversive Bridge- Builder, Barnabas; the Lovable Rebel, Francis of Assisi; the Tightrope Walker, Thomas Cranmer; the Persevering Prophet, Sojourner Truth; the Idealistic Realist, Dorothy Day; and the People’s Voice, Oscar Romero.

Each session concludes with three possible endings, one for adult study groups, one for individuals, and one for vestries and other gatherings of church leaders. Illustrative slides promote conversation starters and interaction. It also includes a bonus resource: A Simple Prayer Liturgy for Use by a Small Group.
The program calls for one study guide per participant and one DVD for the individual or group, each sold separately.

For adult and young adult study groups in mainline Christian churches; clergy and lay leadership teams, such as vestries and boards of elders; plus retreat planners and those ainterested in learning more about the saints and other models of the faith.

“It has been said that when you get right down to it, there are about 20 people that truly hold this world together. Hazardous Saints, takes a serious, studious, and enjoyable look at six of such people. Though not the names we usually hear, nor the people we most often study or celebrate, they are clearly among those foundational souls, without whom, we would not be the faith we are today. More than that, this study encourages the “ordinary” and abundant baptized, the band most of us walk with, to consider the importance of the work we are called to do on a daily basis, and the impact of the small act which may seem irrelevant, but in truth, changes everything.” 
     The Rt. Rev. Gregory H. Rickel, VIII Bishop of Olympia , Seattle, Washington

"What the church desperately needs now are women and men who dare to follow Jesus wholeheartedly, no matter the cost. And here's where it can start. In this compelling and fascinating adult small group study, Dr. C. K. Robertson brilliantly introduces us to six historic—and history-making—persons who, as Chuck puts it, risked all and changed everything. Through his stimulating presentations and the creative study guide resources, any adult formation group will find this eye-opening and faith-stretching study to be a truly life-changing experience."
     The Rev. Peter M. Wallace, producer and host of the "Day1" radio program and author of The Passionate Jesus: What   We Can Learn from Jesus about Love, Fear, Grief, Joy and Living Authentically.
