Women of the Bible Mar 26, 2007
I have personally used this book for a small group study. We get to see some strengths of many women in the Bible as well as their weaknesses and learn from both. There are short scriptures and questions that you can break up and spread them over a week period if you choose. Again, this book is great for small group studies and by using it in a small group, this will allow some accountability in the group and a time for spiritual growth with the Lord and with the others.
Takes forever to get through! Mar 16, 2007
Some of the women are so obscure that it seems like the author is really reaching to get enough information to make a study. Our group found that some of the study questions required little to no thought at all which didn't help to get the discussion going. The real reason this book only gets 3 stars is because, if you meet once a week, it takes an entire year to finish!
A good book to help you know the women of the bible Nov 9, 2006
Our women's bible study has used this book for the last two years to help us get to know the women of the bible. It is amazing how well you come to know the stories of the old testament through these stories. It is great to have these books to keep the class up to date however, I wish they had pulled a little more of the lessons of these women's lives into the study. We are doing that anyway, we just find them ourselves. All around we have enjoyed the book.
Excellent Bible Study Aug 31, 2006
Our women's group have gone through quite a few studies and this material is absolutely the best we have come across. It has a wealth of useful information in the back and is designed to get a group to discuss and confirm that God's word is applicable in the lives of women today. We have seen remarkable growth in our class by both numbers and spiritually.
Women of the Bible Aug 23, 2005
After personally using the companion devotional book last year, I recommended that our ladies' Sunday School class try this workbook in between other studies. Since each week focuses on a different woman, we can easily continue later with the following chapter. So far, the response has been excellent. The questions provoke personal comments from the whole group, although occassionally I find the queries to be oversimplified. The accompanying history and scriptures show that much study went into this book. There is no "leader's guide" for reference, which encourages me to look at other resources as well. The section in the devotional book, which I really liked: "Her Sorrow & Her Joy" is not included in this workbook. The novelized version of each woman's story is also only in the devotional, which is fine, since we don't use that in our group.
