Reviews - What do customers think about The Seven Last Words of Christ: A Bible Study on Jesus' Passion (Emmaus Journey Bible Study Series)?
A great Bible Study book for a small or large group Apr 20, 2008
This book was just what our small church group needed during Lent. It led right up to Easter with seven lessons that really explore the last days of Jesus' earthly life. I personally enjoyed the lesson about Jesus' Mother Mary and her role as supporter, follower and revered Mother. Highly recommended as well as the other books in this series.
Very down-to-earth resource for discipleship Mar 15, 2008
Rich did a superb job in putting together a learning and sharing resource for discipleship with Jesus Christ based on the seven last words of Jesus. It is very easy to read and very practical to follow on a daily basis. Some spiritual books offer deep insight and inspiring thoughts, but fail to give the readers practical suggestions to put them into practice. This book is different. It contains many questions for you to think and respond. Real personal stories for you to related in real life. Most powerfully is his urge of using Jesus' word as a prayer. Jesus' word is the most amazing thing one can use in daily life. It realy santifies and transforms us when we take it seriously. Rich gave my husband permission to translate this book into Chinese to be used in our small Chinese Mission community in Houston. I am sure we will learn to become disciples of Jesus Christ as we follow the passion of Christ discovering his love for us through the guidance of Rich's book.
Good for Lent Sep 23, 2007
This is a good book for a small group bible study. There are seven lessons. Each has passages that are short enough to read as a group, either to give members a chance to collect their thoughts or to catch up if they haven't had time to prepare. Each lesson also ends with a page of individual reflection and two lined pages for extra notes. There is also a brief "real world" story connected to each lesson, which were some of my favorite parts.
