About the Author

Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person, but Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a master storyteller, whose writing and speaking overflows with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life.

More About the Author

Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person... but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflows with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. Her style combines sound scriptural exposition with easy-to-relate to anecdotes and comedic wit.

Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado calls Lisa on of the "best Bible tour guides around," and speaker Priscilla Evans Shirer adds, "If anyone can help us to hear, understand and receive the truth of Scripture it is Lisa Harper. Her God-given ability to not merely teach the Word but package it in a way that stirs the heart and calls to action is incomparable. When she speaks ears perk up!" Lisa's pastor - Scotty Smith of Christ Community Church of Franklin, TN,​ - sums up her appealing approach with this commendation, "In a day in which people connect with stories and yet too often find the Bible abstract and irrelevant, Lisa shows us that 66 books of the Bible are telling one grand story of personal and cosmic redemption, with Jesus starring as the lead character."

Her vocational resume includes six years as the director of Focus on the Family's national women's ministry where she created the popular Renewing the Heart conferences, attended by almost 200,000 women, followed by 6 years as the women's ministry director at a large church in Nashville. Her academic resume includes a Masters of Theological Studies with honors from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis. Now a sought-after Bible teacher and speaker, Lisa is currently featured on the Women of Faith tour and speaks at many other large multi-denominational events - such as Moody Bible, Women of Joy, and Focus on the Family conferences - as well as at hundreds of church retreats all over the world. She's been on numerous syndicated radio and television programs and was featured on the cover of Today's Christian Woman.

She's written ten books including Holding Out For a Hero: A New Spin on Hebrews; A Perfect Mess: Why You Don't Have To Worry About Being Good Enough For God and Untamed: How the Wild Side of Jesus Frees Us to Live and Love With Abandon. Lisa's latest book is titled Stumbling Into Grace: Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman. She also served as a key contributor to the Becoming Devotional Bible for Women and as a columnist for Today's Christian Woman magazine.

Yet in spite of her credentials, the most noticeable thing about Lisa Harper is her authenticity. When recently asked about her accomplishments she responded with a grin saying, "I'm definitely grateful for the opportunities God's given me; but don't forget, He often uses donkeys and rocks!"

Very easy if that is what you are looking for.

So often I found myself thinking that she was missing so many important points, and was instead off in left field.
Noelle
It felt disjointed and most of the time I didn't feel like I learned anything about Malachi.

Format: Paperback
The strength of this book is the author herself. Lisa Harper is everything you want an author and speaker to be. She's relatable, engaging, incredibly funny, and exudes authenticity. She's an amazing story teller, a gifted communicator, and - most importantly - a passionate follower of Jesus Christ. In addition to formal theological training, she has decades of experience in women's ministry and a powerful testimony of God's transforming grace. It's obvious that she "gets" women, has a teacher's heart, and loves the Word of God. Unfortunately, the many strengths of the author do not prevent this from being an incredibly weak book.

While it delivers several valuable things for the reader - encouragement, affirmation of God's unconditional love and faithfulness, a deeper appreciation for Jesus as Savior, and an understanding of the basic facts related to the book of Malachi - it fails in helping the reader gain a thorough understanding of what the book of Malachi reveals about God, sin, judgment, grace, and the person and work of Jesus Christ. Most of these topics are addressed, but not in a way that allows the reader to "connect the dots" between these general concepts, the book of Malachi, and the "big picture" of God's redemptive plan revealed throughout Scripture. Because of this, the book comes dangerously close to actually diluting the stern message of the book of Malachi.

Though this book is marketed as a book (of the Bible) study, it reads much more like a topical study. The author merely uses the book of Malachi as a springboard for highlighting the love and mercy of God, which she rarely ties back to the message of the Minor Prophet.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking to seriously study the word of God, this is not the study for you. The constant, prolonged jokes and stories are uninteresting and completely irrelevant. I have barely opened my bible during this study and the questions she asks are ridiculous. I have not ever wondered nor do I care to think about what kind of text message I would send the Israelite's if I could. I'm done with this study today and I'm only on the 4th week. I tried to keep going and I just can't take it after the last few lines about the Israelite women not having enough money to fix the mini van's wheel and getting their highlights done. This book is a study of who the author is, and information about how self absorbed she is in herself and what she thinks is funny. That is all you will walk away with, nothing about God's word. Ridiculous...

Format: Paperback
I had high hopes for a study for woman about a wonderful book in the OT, and having seen the author speak at a conference, and read her book "A Perfect Mess" I knew her to be honest, relatable and pretty authentic about herself. Plus, she went to the same seminary I did, so I felt confident about her theology. But this study falls very short... and asks no questions about the bible text itself. I found it s unfocused and "fluff".

You know, just because we are women doesn't mean we only want to read the scripture passage and then talk about our lives. We want to talk about how the scripture reveals God to us... we want to consider how the God of the Bible affects our lives AND we want to dig deep into ourselves and the passage. But the passage must come first, because it is God word that shapes us. If we consider ourselves first, then we are the ones shaping God's word. And then we might as well just make up our own version of Christianity.

In my Bible Study of 17 women, only 2 or 3 are actually getting anything out of this. Attendance has diminished each week and I would stop coming myself if I wasn't the leader! We're on week 6 and I know no more about Malachi than I did on week 1. I do know a lot about Lisa, though, and while her stories are amusing, they don't have much to do with Malachi. Also, my group struggles with the attempts to "modernize" the Bible stories --- references to Facebook and such are lost on the more "mature" members of our group. On the positive, the group does like the length of the videos and weekly vs. daily homework.
In short, Lisa seems like a really nice gal and would fun on a trip to Vegas, but I am not sure Bible studies are her forte. But since this is her first study, I'm sure she'll improve. Until then, though, my group will be going back to Beth Moore.

r stories are interesting but really have nothing to do with Malachi. As another reviewer mentioned, it is confusing and uncomfortable when she tries to "modernize" the Bible stories --- references to Facebook lost on the "mature" members of ourgroup

I agree with all the other one and two star reviews. My small group wanted to learn about the book of Malachi and each week, after the study, I asked myself - did I learn anything about Malachi? NO! But I do know a lot about Lisa Harper and I'm not as big of a fan as she is of herself. I would never do another of her studies again. I am so sorry to be so direct but was amazed at how terrible this study was.
