Reviews - What do customers think about The Sisters' Guide to In-Depth Bible Study?

Non-cumbersome approach to studying the Bible.  Aug 18, 2006
This is an excellent work for a new believer or for any woman (regardless of race) who is in need of a little persuasive encouragement when it comes to actually STUDYING the Bible. It's short and easy. You could easily read it in a couple of hours, which is a good thing if you don't have a lot of time on your hands (such as moms, students, etc.) and want to grab hold of some techniques to quickly get started. The techniques, by the way, are not complicated at all--very manageable--just simple steps to draw out God's message. The author also gets personal. She reveals the journey which brought her to the realization that she (and we) need to be a little more proactive when it comes to Bible study. I highly recommend this book.
The sister's guide to in-depth bible study  Sep 12, 2005
I knew I was going to like this one, so I bought a copy for a friend and she loves her copy too. this author doesn't browbeat you into reading your bible more she coaxes you into it and it is much more effective in motivating one to push forward and dig deeper into study. Very good Ms. Johnson.
Setting an example  Aug 31, 2005
In her book, THE SISTER'S GUIDE TO IN-DEPTH BIBLE STUDY, Ms. Johnson focuses on African-American women and urges us to not only study God's Word, but digest it. Although life can be cumbersome and we often don't have enough time, she urges us to make time. Preparation, planning and creating an environment conducive for reflection and learning is key. Additionally, Johnson offers up seven steps which she refers to as the seven P's, to follow as a guide when beginning your own personal Bible Study. This approach encourages the student to take notes in an outline type of format and apply various learning techniques to comprehend the Bible and apply it to daily living.

Although Ms. Johnson's book may not be anything new to even the average Bible student, her explanation of the process, the examples she uses and the flowing manner in which she writes, struck a chord with me. It reinforced the inductive study approach I had used many years ago, but it also added a new twist with the outline style format. The method introduced by Ms. Johnson can be applied to your personal study or used with a group as well.

Appendix A in the back of the book includes a leader's guide with helpful suggestions for Bible study leaders. Appendix B includes a wonderful diagram explaining the different translations of the Bible. Also included in the appendices are a resource guide in which Johnson recommends such tools as commentaries and Bible encyclopedias. All in all, this book is small but mighty! I believe it could be an excellent tool when applied to encourage the in-depth study of the Bible.
