With 31 pages of lesson plans, descriptions, historic teachings, topics for contemplation and discussion, and ideas for prayer and outreach – the Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer Study Guide is perfect for churches, universities, seminaries and individual use. It may be used with a teacher or group leader, or as independent study. It is full of beautiful color photographs from each location in the movie – places where cameras have never been before.

* Each Study Group member needs an individual copy, please. We are offering this Study Guide without copy restrictions, on the honor system, but we do need to recoup costs of making the film and writing the materials. Thank you for your understanding and support.*
