In case you hadn’t noticed (or if you read my blog from some time ago) I’ve been laying quite low for a while. There are a number of reasons for this, most recently because we’ve been facing some health issues in our family so my mind has been elsewhere. Don’t worry, that story has a happy ending.
But I am starting to brainstorm some ideas for the next revision of Arguing with Friends. I don’t have a set timeline for this yet and the way my life is running right now it will probably be a very long time in the future. However, as I brainstorm I thought I’d see if anybody who reads my blog had any comments to inspire my rework of the book. Specifically I am looking for two things.
If you have read the book, do you have any specific feedback? I have received some excellent feedback from a number of sources, and I will be making some changes based on their suggestions, but I’m always open to further commentary. I love hearing both the good and the bad. What aspects of the book have been positively influential for you (I shouldn’t make major changes in those areas) and what parts of the book were just confusing and/or misguided in your view? I’m all ears either way.
- Whether you have read the book or not I am considering making a companion study guide for small groups. A number of people have made this suggestion. I’m not really into study guides for small groups so I don’t have a lot of experience with those. If you have gone through a book with a small group that had a study guide that you thought was really well done could you drop some titles? I’d love some direction on what makes a good study guide.
Thanks, that’s it for now. Either drop comments below or send me a message privately; I’m good either way.
Keep up the good arguing!
