Format: Paperback
I led a Bible study last year on 1Peter and we really felt God convicting us as how to depend on Him to make us gentle and quiet. At first we kept feeling that we really blew it but as we progressed we knew that it had to be the grace of God to help us conform to the image of Christ. I find Mrs. George's books very much in line with the written word of God and a real encouragement to live our lives to His glory.

This amazing little study put together by Elizabeth George is currently being used by our church's women's class. It has encouraged much discussion, is clearly Biblical, and simple, yet direct. There is no doubt left in any person's mind that this study is relevent for women of today who are facing many complex issues, and need Biblical hope and direction in problem solving for the future. Give this book a try for a young women's new study, small group, etc. You will not be disappointed !!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Mary J. Kilpatrick on July 11, 2007
Format: Paperback
Elizabeth George writes with a very personal style which makes the reader feel that you are learning and growing together with her. She writes without apology from a woman's viewpoint, laying out the truth of God's Word and letting the Word speak for itself. The truth of 1 Peter about the qualities of a gentle and quiet spirit are so misunderstood in our day. We are reminded of how precious they are to God and how beautiful is the woman who seeks after these qualities. The author greatly encourages the pursuit of knowing God and becoming a woman of God. This book is a classic for women, showing that the woman who has these qualities also gains quiet strength and beauty.

This book is good for the busy woman. I can usually do one lesson every morning as it only takes about 10 minutes. Also, it gives suggestions for ideas for deeper study if you want as well.

Format: Paperback
Sometimes, I like to take a break from doing self-guided bible study and do a prepackaged one. When I do Elizabeth George is one of my favorites. This, her study on 1 Peter, was no exception.
What I liked about it:
I loved the style of questions to answer. I found her thoughts and questions very helpful. This study wasn't too long either. I didn't get tired of it before it ended.
What I didn't like about it:
The only thing that I didn't like about it was sometime I didn't agree with her interpretation of a verse, but then, I rarely agree with an author 100%.

Over all, I would recommend to any girl or woman wanting a refreshing look at 1 Peter.
