About Living The Questions

Living The Questions – in the opinion of us reprobates at Wild Goose – is one of the most relevant and authentic and honest attempts to address the big theological and faith challenges of our time, incarnationally and holistically, in accessible, educational forms.

LTQ is not the product of a denominational work group or other institutional effort aimed at simply dressing up the theological status quo. Instead, it is the response to the search for a practical tool to bring together, equip, and re-educate thinking Christians. What started out as just a single DVD series is now a growing catalog of curriculum with over a dozen titles in use by over 8,000 churches and other groups across the US, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Living The Questions Churches utilize LtQ resources for spiritual formation in a variety of ways: adult studies, retreats, new member orientations, etc.


Cost: £4/ £3 concession per session (suggested donation).
