Each chapter gives the name of the woman being studied, the meaning of her name (if she has one), the "key scriptures" in which she can be found (for the purposes of the focuses of the study, not ALL of the chapters and verses that actually talk about her), an excerpt of the key scriptures (presumably to read out loud in a group), a half to 3/4 page summary of "her life and times", a small paragraph filling up the rest of that page discussing how it should apply to our lives, and then 2 pages of questions (of which, only 3-4 out of 15-20 are even a little valuable to my situation).Read more ›
This book has 52 discussions, each of which discusses one woman of the Bible. It gives out basic character of the woman, and some key scriptures. I like how it prints out some scriptures from the Bible that form a summary of the story, such that we don't have to spend too much time opening up the verses (you will still need to open up some verses on your own from the Bible during discussion).
I also like the "So-and-so's Life and Times" section that explains the culture of the society during which each woman in the story lived. This really helps us in understanding the decisions that they made that we, in today's world, would otherwise have considered absurd. And, this helps us to relate their struggles with ours today.
I used this book with some young women small group (teens to early twenties). All of them never read the Bible front to back. So, for me one of the strongest points of this book is that it thoroughly leads us to walk through pretty complete history of the Bible. Most other bible study books go by topics, and thus sometimes are not as thorough.
Despite the detailed history part, the discussion questions are not boring (as most history books are) but they are pretty interesting and help the members to open up with each other.
All in all, I was satisfied more that I expected with this book. Plus, it has 52 stories, so I won't have to worry anytime soon of having to find another bible study book.
I found it really helpful.
There is no "leader's guide" for reference, which encourages me to look at other resources as well. The section in the devotional book, which I really liked: "Her Sorrow & Her Joy" is not included in this workbook. The novelized version of each woman's story is also only in the devotional, which is fine, since we don't use that in our group.
