Reviews - What do customers think about Living the Letters: Philippians: N/A?
Excellent Mar 27, 2010
Philippians is part of the Life Change Series published by NavPress. The book of Philippians found in the Bible is just four chapters long, but each is a gold mine of wisdom. This study helps the reader find it in a slow and steady way, which I believe leads to a better understanding. The basic method follows the pattern of inductive study, but adds other benefits like questions challenging you to think about your life and apply what you've read. There are also plenty of ideas for groups working on this study together. There are areas set aside for further study or further thought allowing you to determine the depth of your study. The last few pages of the book contain a long list of study aids you can use to further study Philippians or any other book of the Bible.
I admit that I was skeptical when I requested the book to review. I have done many studies that ended up being shallow and overly simplistic, which I believe does a disservice to the Bible and the believer. I am happy to say, I was wrong. This is an excellent study to do alone or in a group setting. The book is thoroughly explored and there is plenty of writing work to do to record what you learn. And there is plenty of food for thought to challenge you as you go about your day. I highly recommend this study and look forward to doing more from the Life Change Series in the future.
Life Change Bible Study - Philippians Feb 15, 2010
NavPress has a series of personal and group Bible studies called the Life Change series. This series is a good opportunity to read and study different books of the Bible and grow from what you learn. I recently received and studied through the book of Philippians using the Life Change series Bible study.
It's hard to review a Bible study guide without also speaking of the passages of the Bible studied using the guide. Philippians has always been one of my favorite books. So, when the opportunity arose to review a study guide on Philippians, I jumped at the chance.
NavPress has put together a great Bible study guide in the Life Change series. These studies are fairly well written and have a lot of rich features to add to your study.
First and foremost, is an opportunity for personal discovery of God's Word. Life Change Bible studies give you the opportunity to really dig into the Word and gain a lot of insight from it. Life Change studies break the subject material up into easily read and managed portions. You don't have to worry about reading too much or missing something because the study takes too long.
The historical background pages at the beginning of the study help a lot as well. With maps and timelines, along with an overview of Paul's ministry, you have a solid, yet concise, grasp of the era in which Paul lived and wrote to the Philippians.
Each chapter also has varying levels of application. There are several application questions to make you think, as well as optional projects that enable you to put into practice what you learn. This is my favorite feature of the Life Change Bible study series.
NavPress has included a lot of other great features, such as a group discussion guide, making this an easily led small group study. With study skill suggestions, word and idea definitions and text boxes full of interesting insights and historical snippets, this Bible study series if full of useful information.
NavPress has done a great job of putting this series together. However, nothing really makes the Life Change series stand out above any other series on the market, in my opinion. InterVarsity, College Press and Willow Creek, to mention a few, have similar study series available. All of these have great features and assist you into deeper knowledge of the Word.
NavPress has done a good job creating another tool and resource. But ultimately, the change in lives comes from the power of God's Word. Thanks, NavPress, for helping people study and apply that Word into their lives. You've created a helpful tool in the Life Change series.
