Not what I hoped for
on November 20, 2010
Very disappointed in this Beth Moore study. It seemed that the Book of Esther was too short for a full study, and thus it dragged on and on and on. And yet, instead of dwelling on the climactic celebration at the end, it was glossed over and rushed through. I participated in the study with a group of women and most of the others seemed to greatly enjoy it, so my dislike of it may just be me!
The videos were not just off-topic, but off target as well, putting too much emphasis on darker issues and the enemy rather than uplifting women through God's Word. They just seemed to be motivational and attack issues that most women have already learned to deal with by focusing on God (an idea presented as new and original).
While I agree that it is important to apply scripture to one's own life, this workbook asks you to focus on expressions of the characters faces, how they stood, what they may have said in exasperation, etc. The homework questions were so frustrating that I found myself leaving most of them blank.
Unfortunately, this study did not live up to the high expectations I had for it.
