Reviews - What do customers think about The Workbook on the Seven Deadly Sins?
Great group Bible study resource Apr 3, 2007
We have used this workbook as a Lenten Bible study at my church this spring. There are about 20 people in the study and each person, at some point, has expressed how much s/he is learning and how much s/he enjoys the study. More than that, it has made all the participants more aware of the pervasive reality of sin in our lives, which has led to a greater desire for God's forgiveness and healing. The authors continually point to Jesus Christ and warn repeatedly about not doing things in our own strength or just "trying harder". They speak of the transformation that is only possible through surrender to the Holy Spirit. The study has convicted and inspired us on a personal level, but has also inspired great discussion of depth and insight.
I know of many other churches who have used this study (usually during Lent) and I have heard nothing but rave reviews. Frankly, I am shocked by a couple of the negative reviews here. This is a great tool for study and discussion. I would highly recommend doing this with a group. Again, I've only heard wonderful things from other pastors and church leaders who have actually used this resource in a church setting.
Surface skimmed here. Aug 7, 2001
The authors express a lot of their opinions and personal points of view within this workbook, versus really convincing the reader about the true nature of sins. In reading through the different chapters, it is hard to find a complete separation in their writing between one deadly sin described and another - perhaps there isn't any, but perhaps that is where the discussion could lead. As a result it seems that the surface is skimmed repeatedly, but the real meat of the matter remains where it was before the workbook! As a workbook for discussion groups studying seven deadly sins, this workbook would probably create the same exact discussion for every session. Another result of the authors' bias would probably create a trail of condemnation versus a pathway for enlightenment concerning these sins. In conclusion, this work falls short of what it could have been.
I now know what the 7 capital sins are Jul 7, 2001
Short workbook which covers the 7 capital sins. I gave 3 stars because the workbook seemed a bit short. I thought it should gone more in depth about the sins.
Very good and informative Feb 26, 2001
I found this book to be easy to read. I, not being Christian found this book to be highly revolving around the Christian religion showing many Christian views. I think this book will be most effective if read in a group instead for personal use. Overall this book served my purposed sufficently and I think it was written quite well.
