Religion - Biblical Studies - Bible Study Guides
I was attracted to this book, as it is billed as a "6-week, no-homework bible study". I hate doing Bible studies that require a lot of writing, copying, and fill in the blank. I also thought this would be a good tool for use in my own home bible fellowship.
Each study opens with an introduction by Arthur, then she mostly remains silent, on the text, only asking questions. The question are good to get discussion going, however, I prefer more commentary on the scripture and thought process behind the question than just having the question on the page. I was a little disappointed in this.
The book is also good in that the scripture is printed in the book, which makes study a lot easier, by being able to avoid having several open Bibles, and books. It is all self contained. Arthur directs the reader to underline, circle, triangle certain words in the text. I do not usually read this way, but I tried it. I soon neglected it, as there is no real tie in to the things that are being underlined, circled, or triangled; and the book was looking kind of sloppy.
Each study closes with a wrap-up by Kay Arthur. All in all I would recommend this book only if you need a lot of questions to ask. As a Bible study tool, however, there are many resources that are much better than this.
