Biblical Change without Micro-Managing and Nagging!
In the Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands DVD Seminar, Paul Tripp and Tim Lane outline biblical, Christ-centered principles that equip participants for personal ministry to others. The 12-session seminar applies the principles in the Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands Study Guide and offers an overview of the process of biblical change that will transform the way you think about helping others. The seminar is suitable for church-wide training sessions, small groups, Sunday schools, youth groups, or one-on-one discipleship, and it includes bonus material for equipping leaders.

How to Use
Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands: How to Help Others Change by Paul David Tripp is a twelve-lesson guide to being used by Christ to help others. The study guide walks participants through a biblical model of personal ministry (Love, Know, Speak, Do). Participants are encouraged that even though they are in need of change themselves, the Spirit can and will use them as instruments of change in the lives of others. The goal of this curriculum is that people would learn to give and receive biblical help that doesn't only change and help them, but also changes the culture of their church and surrounding community.
The study and facilitator guide have been used all over the world to help participants become God's instruments of comfort, encouragement, conviction, and change in the lives of those around them. Participants and leaders will also benefit from the extra material and reinforcement of concepts contained in the book, Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands: People in Need of Change Helping People in Need of Change, also authored by Paul David Tripp (P&R).
The recently updated Facilitator's and Study Guides (2010) have essentially the same material as the 2005 version. You will note differences in format and pagination (the 2010 Guides have consecutive page numbers).
Each lesson is formatted to last 90 minutes and contains the following sections:
Who Is This Product For?
The Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands course is designed to be used in churches, small groups, ministries, and individual discipling to help participants examine the underlying issues that make change difficult and to understand how to go to Christ for the change they desire. It is suitable for laypeople and ministry and counseling professionals.
The Instrument in the Redeemer's Hands materials (book and curriculum) are the second of CCEF's three core series about gospel-centered change. The first part of the series is the How People Change book, small group resource, and seminar (DVD) by Paul David Tripp and Timothy S. Lane. The third part of the series is the book Relationships: A Mess Worth Making and the small group resource Change and Your Relationships both by Lane and Tripp. Each course is designed to give pastors, counselors, and ministry leaders a biblical, Christ-centered, and user-friendly tool to equip laypeople to grow in grace. The three courses together answer three fundamental questions: Why do people do the things they do? How does lasting change take place in a person? How can God use me in someone's life to help them grow?
Although each of these series stand alone, it can be helpful to go through them in order--beginning with How People Change, then Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands, and ending with Relationships: A Mess Worth Making.
