I am trying to develop a list of resources for small group leaders. I am interested in resources that would be the basics you would use for every lesson. Obviously this will change from person to person but I am looking for resources that could help teachers every time they go to prepare. 

For example on my list would include: 

1) Talk Thru the Bible

2) The Lexham Cultural Ontology Glossary

3) Nelson's Teaching Outlines of the Bible

The emphasis here is on application, context, key verses, questions, quickly gaining the big picture of the passage as it fits in book begin studied and the Bible as a whole.

Hands down the most valuable resource for any small-group leader is the Serendipity Bible.  It is now out of print, but in the margin of NIV text are 3 sets of questions for every section of scripture:

1.  Open (Ice Breaker)

2.  Dig (Study)

3.  Reflect (Apply)

The original author (Lyman Coleman) has a newer version, but the latest work does not hold a candle to the original.

I scanned the margin questions several years ago and continue to use this resource.  I have been leading small-group studies for over 40 years now.

What kind of theological background(s) are we to assume of the small group leaders in question? Is your interest exclusively in resources for Baptist small group leaders?
