I respectfully disagree with every last word of the previous review. The Patriarchs study was well-done and I believe God-inspired. Beth Moore does an excellent job of revealing the flawed humanity and sin-nature of every human being, including the patriarchs of the O.T. She does so to encourage all who might feel "too far gone" in their sin or inadequate in some way to serve the Lord and show that with Christ, all things are possible. He doesn't choose those who appear qualified in the world's eye, but those He deems worthy in His own sovereign knowledge. This study provides a wonderful foundation of the book of Genesis in a way that is relevant, respectful and that brings the characters to life. The patriarchs were no more or less perfect than anyone else, yet I am amazed at how God used these sinful, imperfect men to bring His covenant to a lost world.

This is my first study with Beth. I have heard other women rave about her teaching, but I am finding I sometimes disagree with the way she sees things. ( I DO NOT see Esau and Judas as being exactly alike! Esau forgave Jacob and made things right. Judas BETRAYED CHRIST and committed suicide. I can not even compare the two, let alone say they are both of Satan.) I don't mean to be disrespectful to those who follow her teachings to the letter, however, she seems to sometimes make a good "story" by twisting things the way she wants them to be. (e.g. Her spin on Jacob the first time he met Rachel at the well. He was "lust stricken" and moved a rock from the well covering with superhuman strength in his "lust stage." I can NOT find anywhere in scripture to back up her perception of these verses. I feel she just uses it to make a good story.)
On the good side, she does offer much good insight and thoughts on people in this study. My advice is this: Chew up the meat and spite out the bones. Don't accept all of her teaching as Holy Spirit inspired. Don't mean to offend her loyal fans, just think for yourself and pray as in James chapter 1, "If anyone lacks Wisdom let him ask God, believing, and he will receive it. But let him ask in faith, believing God will guide him." Remember she is a good Bible teacher, but she is not God.

My Bible Study group, just finished the Patriarchs. It was truley a blessing to have done this study. This was my first time with Beth Moore and she is simply amazing. Every lesson reached my heart and soul. Her workbook is great and the CD's that are with this study are just awesome. This study covers the book of Genesis, from Abraham to Jacob, and showed how God tied Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to the present and the future. It is a study well worth taking.

This is my first Beth Moore. I've heard of her for about 2 years. I'm taking with about 30 other women. We finished week 6 yesterday. There was not a dry eye in the house after the video. This is THE most powerful Bible study I've ever done. And it's our ancestors. And they are as screwed up as I am! And God still talks to them. Thank you Beth from the bottom of my heart - I feel healing and love every week. I can't wait to do the homework, takes 1-2 hours a week, and can't wait to get to group on Mondays. Please continue this work.

This was my sixth Beth Moore bible study. I have done two with a church group and four on my own. It took me about eight-nine weeks although it is set up for a ten week course. I downloaded and watched four of her videos, although there are ten altogether available at [...] (The workbook alone is a great study even without her videos.) I really enjoyed doing the workbook reading and answering the questions at my own pace sometimes more and sometimes less than four or five times a week. The lessons don't take nearly as long as the other studies I have done. Max is about 30-35 minutes whereas some of her other studies: e.g. the one on Esther and the one on the Tabernacle took me almost an hour. The questions are thought provoking and, as usual, she makes you compare other passages to the ones in Genesis to get the bigger picture from a Christian viewpoint. Nicely done!

She includes many personal stories which go quite nicely with the stories of the Patriarchs from Genesis while giving you ample opportunity to think of your own similar experiences. The story of Jacob struggling with the Angel of the Lord at Peniel really helped me understand better past and recent struggles in my own life. I felt this study helped me resolve some personal issues and receive healing. Besides the personal experiences and application for bible scholars as well as beginners in bible exploring--there is ample biblical research involved. I found this to be one of her easier but very life changing and worthwhile studies. Truth is not compromised by the witness involve..it is given clarity. Would recommend it for any woman individually or in a group. I just sent for my seventh bible study workbook by Beth Moore. (ordered it here on amazon.com) Obviously, I greatly appreciate the work of this women's bible study leader and teacher.

Although, Beth Moore's studies are geared toward women, we just finished this Bible Study in our couples small group. Both men and women enjoyed and got a lot out of the study. The men did have to put up with a few "girly moments" but they didn't seem to mind since they found the rest of the study so fascinating. I highly recommend the study.
