1. After her father’s deathbed confession knocked Kit’s world from her axis, she determined to find her “real” family. But at what cost to her relationship with her mother? Do you agree with the way she built a relationship with her biological family?
2. Kit didn’t really believe in God or that he wanted a relationship with her. She was more interested in building her earthly relationships (with her sisters and family) than her spiritual ones. What about you? What’s more important to you? Family and friends or God? Why?
3. Which scene in the story did you like the most?
4. Were you able to figure out who the killer was? If so, what gave him away?
5. Were you able to identify with a particular character? If so, which one and why?
6. Kit used exercising/running as a way of working off her stress. What do you do to deal with the curveballs life throws you?
7. Kit came across information about Noah that surprised her. She found out he works with the kids in a boys’ home and was impressed, touched that he takes the time to do that. Is there something that you do that makes a difference in the lives of others? What is it?
8. Can you think of someone who had a major influence in your life? Maybe even saved you from yourself? If so, who?
9. All of the victims in the story died because of the way one person perceived their actions and attitudes. How do you come across to others? Are you kind and compassionate? Or... not? Sometimes we need to take a look at ourselves through others eyes. How do you think people see you?
10. In A Killer Among Us, the villain was really messed up mentally. He had a mental illness that was unseen by the rest of the world. He could appear normal by all accounts and only struggled in his private dark world. Do you think if someone had reached out to him, presented him with the love of God, he might have turned out differently? Or do you think he would have become exactly what he did --- a cold-blooded killer?
11. What do you think about evil in this world and the fact that Christians aren’t immune from it? Yes, Christians have a certain protection, but we are still faced with difficult decisions and life-changing events that might seem “unfair” to have to experience as a child of God. What do you think about the struggles and trials Christians face every day? Is it “unfair” for God to allow this? What are your thoughts?
