SUGGESTION: Counter Culture (Bible Study Book) – David Platt 

Counter Culture Bible Study Book includes six sessions with DVD teaching outlines, small group discussion guides, applicable Scripture, individual study, and practical application. The Bible is clear on a number of issues:

Who God is—the holy, just, and gracious Creator of the universe
Who we are—men and women created in the image of God for our good and for God's glory
Who Christ is and what He has done—His life, death, and resurrection
What it means to follow Christ—to die to ourselves and to live in Him
Why this matters for eternity—heaven and hell are at stake in our response to the gospel

So how do these truths affect how we respond to the social issues of our day—realities such as poverty, slavery, abortion, sexual immorality, the degradation of marriage, the neglect of orphans and widows, racism, and persecution?

David Platt believes that the truths of the gospel should compel us to a contrite, compassionate, and courageous personal response to social issues in the culture. Using biblical foundations, practical illustrations, and personal exhortations, this study is a pointed yet winsome call for readers to faithfully follow Christ in countercultural ways. There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?

Features:

Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content
Leader material (guides to questions, general leadership, etc.)
Personal study segments

Benefits: 

Understand timeless biblical truth as the lens through which you view current events and trends.
Equip group members to share what they believe in a compassionate yet uncompromising way.
Gain clarity and confidence on our culture's most controversial issues.
Inspire your group members to take action and live out their faith.

Actually Michael G. Halpern VYRSO has all of the Bible Study Booklets for the Youth, but this Bible Study Book on Counter Culture is for the adults. It is in-depth Bible Study, and we would greatly benefit from this workbook.

The particular title requested by the OP is from Lifeway as part of a curriculum with DVD, etc.

Vyrso does carry some resources like this one, but in those cases the publisher has a separate ISBN for just the user guide. Since the blurb comes from the publisher, sometimes the blurb actually mentions the "included DVD," which of course the Vyrso edition does not have. 

I don't know about this resource in particular, but I would be interested in having access to streaming videos for curriculum.

Note taken Edwin Bowden and yes, I already know that. I understand alabama24, but this Bible Study Book is definitely more in depth and for the adults.The Study Guide Booklets on VYRSO is mostly for the Youth. This Bible Study Book is the real deal. I have a copy of it sitting on my sofa; that is why I asked Erin Land if there is any way that they can get this resource on VYRSO.

The booklets are 65 pages with no Homework Assignments.

The Bible Study Workbook is 173 pages with Homework Assignments.

Not knocking the Booklets now; am very glad they are on VYRSO. We need all the information and insight that we can get into these particular subjects that we are dealing with in this day and time. But if VYRSO can get this Bible Study Book on here, that would be fantastic!

NOTE: This Bible study can be completed with just the Counter Culture Book and the Bible Study Book.

I was primarily trying to point out that this is from a different publisher (Lifeway) than the primary book.
