Reviews - What do customers think about Mocha on the Mount (Coffee Cup Bible Series)?
Raise a Mug Oct 30, 2006
Do you cringe when you hear about yet another Bible study? Do you fear the shame of a strict school teacher reprimanding you from its pages? Sandra Glahn's Coffee Cup Bible studies are nothing like that. Her writing is like a teacher who walks from behind the desk and sits down in the back row with the rowdiest bunch. No condemnation. No gaggy preaching or lecturing. Just a shared need to learn what our heavenly Teacher is saying. But she is not without enough sense of humor to appreciate the value of a well-flung spitball toward our fellow students. So raise a mug of java to this Bible study series, which manages to keep us awake, learning, and focused on the real Author of Truth.
Smell the coffee brewing. Jul 24, 2006
A rich blend of personal insight and theological training combine to make the Coffee Cup Bible series full of possibility for spiritual growth. Whether two or twenty people meet to interact with the weekly lesson and share their own answers to probing questions, everyone will appreciate the lovely format and original style.
A practical, friendly tone leads to personal application of biblical truth. From Mocha on the Mount, for example, "What are some ways people demonstrate that they're enslaved to money?" Then, "List evidences that you've been affected by materialism?" Sandra Glahn reveals vulnerability as she raises questions contemporary women confront.
Six lessons in each compact book contain the scripture, commentary and discussion questions (Espresso with Esther has five weeks of lessons). Planning a women's Bible study to correspond with the school year, this series lends itself to complete two studies before Christmas, then after the break, offer two more. If you do one study, you will want to complete them all.
As a former BSF Teaching Leader, it's great to be able to recommend a study I know God can bless.
Mocha on the Mount Jul 6, 2006
I delight in studying God's Word in a phrase-by-phrase, word-by-word setting. Mocha On the Mount, Sandra's study of the Sermon on the Mount, is a perfect example. I would recommend it for any ladies' Bible study...D.J.Martin, Ladies' Bible Study Teacher.
Prepare to be spiritually x-rayed! Jul 1, 2006
This is the most convicting book that I've read out of the series. This 6-week walk through Jesus' Sermon on the Mount is for every women who desires to take an honest spiritual inventory on her walk with the Lord. And like the other books in this series, Sandra again breaks this passage down section by section, giving practical applications and devotional thoughts. Perfect for group study or individual devotions.
Light on the Mount Jun 28, 2006
Mocha on the Mount sheds light on the Sermon on the Mount; as a result of the study, I now read Matthew 5-7 with more understanding! It provides wonderful insight into what Jesus values...thereby helping me to look into areas of my life and consider my attitudes and actions concerning issues such as revenge, anxiety, and accumulating earthly possessions vs. eternal ones. Thank you, Sandi Glahn, for a tool that addresses who I should be becoming. I'm eager and equipped now to not only better apply these Scriptures to my heart but also to lead my children through them.
