From the Back Cover

No one promised studying the Bible would be easy, but no one said it was supposed to be all work and no play either. Join Bible teacher and author Jen Hatmaker as she introduces a refreshing new way to learn and laugh while forming a deeper relationship with God's Word. Written specifically for today's busy woman, A Girlfriend's Way to Bible Study offers user-friendly advice on how to get the most from your personal Bible study time. Like a funny conversation between friends, A Girlfriend's Way to Bible Study will make you laugh out loud as it transforms the academic nature of personal Bible study into a fresh, simple format that will radically change the way you interact with Scripture forever. So whether you're taking some "me" time or getting together with all your girls, grab a comfy seat and a cup or plate of something yummy and get ready for a whole new view of the Bible.

If you want a deeper study there is a bible reading list and bible study guide in the back of the book along with a leader's guide for small groups.

Jen has a great sense of humor and the book is an easy read.

Have you ever opened your Bible at random and hoped God would speak to you, yet ended up pointing at a verse about how many cubits long the temple curtains should be? Have you ever read through your Bible in a year, only to discover you did indeed read it (perhaps in 2 years instead of 1), yet you don't remember a thing? Is everything you know about Scripture handed down from your pastor or a small group leader?

If any of these describe you, then you need A Modern Girl's Guide to Bible Study by Jen Hatmaker. This book is truly life changing. The tone is friendly, girlfriend-to-girlfriend. The author seems to know me and the struggles I've had in setting aside time for successful Bible study time.

After taking time to work through this book, you will have tools and courage to study the Bible on your own. None of the ideas are "out there." As a matter of fact, you have probably heard of every single idea in the book. But, at least for me, I've never heard them presented in a comprehensive, compelling way that moved me to action.

After 8 weeks, I am still meeting God each morning. The time is richer than I ever could have imagined. Please, if you considering buying this book, just do it! You won't be sorry!

I found this book very helpful. I did this Bible study with a group of girls. I loved it because it gave great tips and tools on how to study the Bible and how to go about gaining a deeper knowledge of what I read. I now have the confidence and understanding on how to tackle a deep Bible study and how to go about disecting a book or person in the Bible.

I suppose it might be necessary to explain why I, a man, read A Modern Girl's Guide to Bible Study. Truth be told, I was looking for resources to be able to better connect my Biblical Literacy course to women as well as connect with ladies in my Bible fellowship class at church. Well, Jen Hatmaker sure connects with women in this book - she is very candid and transparent as she reveals how she struggled with her feelings of inadequacy kept her from really studying God's Word for herself. But, this book is not about her failings, it's about her breakthrough to a new level of intimacy with the Almighty that has come from a deeper connection with God through His Word primarily through a technique she's learned to employ that engages and equips her - journaling. Hatmaker has become an avid reader of Scripture, journaling her thoughts, questions, and God's responses as she walks through God's Word with the help of the Counselor. Good book for "modern girls" old and young alike who want to draw closer to God through time spent studying His Word.

As a christian for 25 years I have never studied the bible this way. It has opened a new wonderful world for me in understanding what The Lord has to say. Jennifer shares her knowledge in a very humorous and practical way. LOVED IT!

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a member of a womens Bible Study group. The topics are relatable and I learned quite a few approaches to studying the Bible. I had fears of studying the Bible and this book helped me to overcome and actually look forward to studying the Word. Definately purchase this entire series and you will find that reading the Bible is a fun habit.

There are some portions of this book that I found harder to read in the kindle edition. A different font is used in some journal sections and it could not be increased in size to a level that I found easy to read. Otherwise, I found the book useful and very funny in some parts.

Great seller! Prompt shipment & book was in great condition. The author truly relates to my generation & I love her whimsical style of writing. I'm 30 and have never found a Bible study book that makes it fun and fresh! This one does! Recommended x100!

My friend and I went through this book together online. We would do one chapter every other week. It took us quite a while to get through the book but it was worth it.

First of all, Jen Hatmaker is VERY funny. She is my kind of Christian Friend! She says all those things you might think but would never dare say. I love her!

Secondly, this girl loves God and His Word. She truly has inspired me to want to dig deeper.

I am inherently a lazy person when it comes to any kind of study, so what I'm about to say is not a reflection on the book or on Jen: I found some of the strategies/tools presented just overwhelming--getting another version of the Bible, comparing a verse to different versions, maybe getting a biblical dictionary, a thesaurus...to me it's a bit intimidating. Not that she says you have to do them all at once, I just tend to be an all or nothing kind of thinker, so I know it's my warped mind thinking, "if I can't do all of these things, I'm not doing any of them!" I **do** want to employ these tips but I'll probably be taking baby steps.

I am willing to at the very least journal my way through my reading of Scripture.

Definitely a must-have for a women's Bible study; it's fresh and enthusiastic.
