Reviews - What do customers think about Nurturing a Passion for Prayer: A Discipleship Journal Bible Study?
a practical guide to prayer Jun 6, 2007
This was a wonderful study. Each woman who participated in our small group was enriched by this study that frees us to look at a variety of ways to communicate with God. The study is done with Biblical references, opportunities for frank discussion and the author is down to earth.
insightful Apr 11, 2006
This study guide is has a useful blend of ideas and real application. It reviews key concepts throughout the guide and while some of its ideas are well-known, many take a new stance. The guide is good at getting you to think and process the material, not just gloss it over and move on to the next chapter.
Finally, a great group Bible Study Book Oct 20, 2000
I have used many Bible Study Books in the past with groups, usually frustrated by the trite questions and the lack of digging into God's Word. This year we used this book and the whole group has loved it. It really makes us read the Word and the quotations from Discipleship Journal are fantastic. This is a very "meaty" study which I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to develop their prayer lives.
