"It's the best material I've read on small group bible study leading and would be useful both for someone leading their first bible study and for someone who's been leading bible studies for decades."
Iron Sharpens Iron! Small Bible-study groups are great places for Christians both to interact with God's Word and to share their lives with others. They provide relaxed and informal settings which facilitate growth in grace and understanding. Orlando Saer provides a realistic and practical guide for anyone leading or wanting to lead such a group. This book will give you the tools you need as a leader to see your group thrive.
Orlando Saer is Pastor of Christ Church, Southampton having previously served as Senior Minister of Cranleigh Baptist Church in Surrey. He has been involved in leading small groups and training other leaders for almost twenty years. Formerly a teacher, he is married to Libby and they have four children.

"One of the strengths of our church life is to have small groups of Christians meeting together for study of the scriptures and mutual encouragement and care. Orlando Saer is a shrewd, capable and experienced guide and gives practical and down-to-earth advice. He has provided us with a resource well worth study and action."
Peter Jensen ~ Archbishop of Sydney
"This is an outstanding book full of carefully applied theological reflection and valuable practical wisdom. It will be of immense benefit to small group Bible study leaders. I recommend it wholeheartedly."
William Taylor ~ Minister, St. Helen's Bishopsgate, London
Orlando Saer's Iron Sharpens Iron may well become the "Bible" for small group studies-- as the author's six finely wrought chapters cover virtually everything essential to initiating and maintaining healthy small group Bible studies. There is nothing arm-chair here. No bromides. Saer writes from ground-level, providing us with hard-won advice that is unexceptionably biblical, intensely practical and ever- so- wise. One could wish nothing better for small group ministries than that well-worn copies of this superb book were in the hands of all who aspire to lead. It is terrific, truly the best book of its kind I have read.
R. Kent Hughes ~ Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

Julian Hardyman ~ Senior Pastor, Eden Baptist Church, Cambridge
"My church's small groups started meeting together again last night, and this week I benefited immensely from reading this practical and insightful new book."
Andy Naselli ~ Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Bethlehem College and Seminary, Minneapolis, Minnesota
"An extremely helpful and practical guide from someone who really understands small-group ministry - we shall be giving all our small group leaders a copy as soon as we can get hold of them!"
Richard Coekin ~ Senior Minister, CO-MISSION Initiative
"Orlando Saer has provided the church with an excellent manual for small group ministry. Founded on a clear biblical vision, this book is full of sharp insight and practical advice, peppered by personal anecdotes and the wisdom of experience. Covering everything from who should lead to how they should lead and what they should aim for, I have great hopes for its positive impact in churches of all types and sizes. As someone with responsibility for small groups, I know this will come in very useful and so commend it warmly."
Mark Meynell ~ Director of Fellowship Groups, Senior Associate Minister, All Souls, Langham Place, London
