Format: Paperback
I would recommend this practical and enlightening Bible study for any Catholic mother who wants to grow in grace. It was nice to finally discover a Bible study written specifically for Catholic women; I have completed two fine Christian Bible studies, but neither addressed issues of faith in the fullness that Mrs. Martin's does. The author points readers toward relevant, inspiring scripture and Catechim passages (oh, yes...you should have a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church available for reference) and encourages us to strive ever higher in our own lives as wives and mothers. Mrs. Martin's personal reflections are engaging, and she weaves them nicely throughout the nine lessons. By the end of the study, I felt as if I had gained a friend and mentor. As we all know, a little while spent in scripture study each day does wonders for the soul, and I completed the study a little bit at a time (while the little angel was napping!). This study is a wonderful tool for helping us grow in faith and grace.
Why only 4 stars? Mothers who do not have the freedom to stay home with their children may feel uncomfortable with this Bible study.

Our MOM's (Mary Our Mentor) group at our parish is using this Bible Study and have grown in number and in grace. We're only on chapter five, but are so enthusiastic about it, I can't say enough good things. We do a chapter a month and share our thoughts and feelings about the reflections and questions. We have become better women, better friends, better mother and better wives because of this Bible Study. I highly recommend it.

The women's group in our parish has been using this book for the past several months. There is much that is good in it and it is solidly Catholic. But I don't think it "hits the mark" for the majority of faithful Catholic women today, that is those who do not fit the model of Mrs. Martin. The main point of disparity is that most Catholic women do not have faithful Catholic husbands, like Mrs. Martin does, who function as the spiritual heads of the households. So much in this book is founded on the premise that they do.

She makes a point in one chapter about how astounded someone was to hear all five of her children had the same father. I wondered at that point about the women reading the book who haven't come from such a wonderful past as she, who have made serious mistakes, whose children do not all have the same father, yet still want to be "women of grace". There was nothing in the book about coming out of an imperfect past (and haven't we all really?), finding forgiveness and striving to become the women of grace God wants us to be.

I also found the format difficult to deal with. Maybe I'm just not the "write in the answers" type of person, but I really did not like so many questions with simple, one-word answers. The book is not really a Bible study, but a Bible-referenced topical presentation.

Format: Paperback
I was completely disappointed with this book. I felt it was infantalizing, directed at women who had little knowledge of the Bible, the role of women, etc. I felt I was being talked down to. My opinion is that a Bible study written for a specific audience or on a specific topic should go beyond the beginner level. In other words, in seeking a Bible study for married women, I wasn't seeking a kindergarden-level Bible course; I was seeking something that would help me, as a Bible reader/prayer of many years, to home in on the Bible's inspiration and guidance specifically for married women. I found the questions uninspiring, and the fill-in-the-blank format to be juvenile. The questions were so superficial that they weren't remotely thought-provoking or challenging. I agree with another reviewer who said that this book assumed that you have a "certain kind" of Catholic husband, or a "certain kind" of past. In that sense, it was judgmental and excluding, and not helpful. I don't know why everyone thinks they need to publish; the world could have easily done without this book. I'm sorry if this sounds like sour grapes, but I feel this book had nothing to offer to a person who has read he Bible even once, and who is seeking answers to difficult situations, rather than coming from the idyllic Catholic marriage/family situation.

This is an excellent book for a Catholic women's small group. It has thought-provoking questions and can lead your group into deeper discussions.

I bought this for the Kindle thinking it would be the same. It is not a good fit for the Kindle. First of all, it is a workbook, so now you need to have a place to write the answers in. The second problem is that it was not formatted correctly in the Kindle version. Sentences are interrupted by titles. Foot notes are on the wrong page.And good luck trying to find the appendixes! I had to search by the word appendix as there is no table of contents. Overall, I think this is a great book and has a lot of good points. I just would recommend the print version, not the electronic.
