—Jen Wilkin, author of None Like Him
“Melissa Kruger helps readers put their heads down into Scripture to explore what is before and underneath and around the text, offering helpful insights along the way that deepen understanding. Then she invites readers to look intently into the reality of their own lives to apply the truths of the text in meaningful and life-changing ways. This is a solid study of a short book from a trusted source.”
—Nancy Guthrie, author of Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series
“If you have read Melissa Kruger before, you will know that she has a passion for the study and right interpretation of God’s Word and a gift for helping others study and understand it for themselves. She is also disarmingly honest, an excellent writer, and a superb storyteller. In All Things is a devotional study through Philippians that will guide you and your group through this important letter with its message of unshakeable joy. I warmly commend it to you.”
—Ligon Duncan, chancellor and CEO of the Reformed Theological Seminary
“Daily life—from the world news to our own personal difficulties—often seems uncertain and unsettling. Each of us faces circumstances beyond our control and situations we never anticipated. At such times, joy can be elusive. In All Things is a bright light shining through the fog. With warmth and biblical wisdom, Melissa Kruger guides readers on a nine-week journey through the book of Philippians, bringing us to rest in the ultimate source of unshakeable joy, Jesus.”
—Megan Hill, writer, speaker, editorial board member at Christianity Today, and author of Praying Together
“Thank you, Melissa, for another excellent Bible study. What a fantastic format to set a busy mum up to succeed in developing her own spiritual life as she faces the ever-pressing demands of nurturing all those in her care! This is great subject matter to study together to reshape every part of life with a gospel, missional perspective!”
—Kristyn Getty, wife, mother, hymn writer, and singer
“Is it true that we can find real and lasting joy? Where do we even begin to look? Melissa Kruger has done us a great service. In All Things helps us with our search for unshakeable joy. You won’t have to look for long (she tells you on the second page!): it’s Jesus. Christ-centered, theological, and relatable; I highly recommend this book!”
—Trillia Newbell, author of Enjoy, God’s Very Good Idea, and Fear and Faith
“Who doesn’t want more joy? I love how Melissa Kruger guides readers in the way of Jesus, the way of grace and peace, no matter where life may take us.”
—Collin Hansen, editorial director of the Gospel Coalition and coauthor of A God-Sized Vision
“With biblical knowledge and practical wisdom, Melissa brings refreshing insight to a familiar topic: joy. This study of Philippians skips feel-good platitudes and simple self-helps and wrestles thoroughly with the passages of Scripture through meaning, interpretation, application, and communion in each week’s focal truth. This study is so needed; I’m anticipating the many lives changed by unshakeable joy through these pages.”
—Ruth Chou Simons, artist and best-selling author of GraceLaced

Early in the first chapter of In All Things, she shared a wonderful quote from the good doctor, D. Martyn Lloyd Jones:
"If ever the world needed the witness and testimony of Christian people it is at this present time. The world is unhappy, it is distracted and frightened, and what it needs is to see stars shining out of the heavens in the midst of the darkness, attracting the world by rebuking that darkness, and by giving it light, showing how it too can live that quality of life."
- Observation, What does the text say?
- What does the text mean?
- How does the text transform me?
I found the bulk of the time was committed to the first two, around the text itself.
Here's where the review is a bit difficult to write. The content is largely very good and allows the reader to tease apart passages to get to the meaning. Where it didn't work for me was regarding the pace, particularly days 4/5 of the weekly study. I was glad I was doing the study with a group of women so I had accountability each week. If I didn't have that weekly gathering where we discussed the material, I think I could have gotten bogged down and (potentially) not finished it. I'm sure for true bible scholars, people could spend years studying it, but for this layperson I found there to be some basic themes and lessons that this study belabored more than was necessary.
