Editorial Reviews

Review

“Wilkin’s challenges to the status quo, grounded in years of observation, ring with gentle wisdom and guide readers in how to study the Bible with greater depth.” (July 14, 2014)
Publishers Weekly

“I have a passion for people to see and savor the God of the Bible, and a corresponding frustration when I see the hurt, loss, and lack of confidence that accompanies a lack of biblical literacy. That’s why I’m glad you are holding this book. Jen Wilkin takes knowing the God of the Bible seriously. She is one of the better Bible teachers I’ve had the opportunity to hear. Her approach in teaching people how to grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures is accessible and helpful regardless of whether you have been a Christian for decades and feel like it’s too late for you or you are a young believer who is hungry to know and understand the God of the Bible.”
Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Dallas, Texas; President, Acts 29 Church Planting Network

“I found Women of the Word to be so practical in the way it demystifies serious Bible study. Too many people—men and women—opt for just reading a few verses and hoping for some inspiration, rather than discovering the meaning of the text in the sweep of God’s redemptive plan. Women of the Word will help anyone who reads it to find their way deeper into the Word of God without having to be seminary educated, a genius, or even an especially good student. My only caveat is that I wish the title didn’t make it hard for men to read . . . they need it, too.”
Kathy Keller, Assistant Director of Communications, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, New York

“I’ve seen eyes misty with tears as women come to understand for the first time that the Bible is actually, literally God’s Word. What great mercy we have been shown—that the Creator who spoke everything that ever was into existence would give us his Word. Jen Wilkin knows this mercy in the core of her being. She has tasted and seen God’s goodness in his Word, and she doesn’t want a single woman to miss it. Read Women of the Word with your Bible open and your friends alongside you. Think of this book as a maître d of a Bible study banquet—have a seat, here are your utensils, dig in, and enjoy.”
Gloria Furman, Pastor’s wife, Redeemer Church of Dubai; mother of four; author, Glimpses of Grace and Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full   

“Jen lives what she teaches. Her servant heart in unpacking the Scriptures as well as her affection for the women she is teaching is evident the moment you meet her. I’m so glad she was obedient to the Lord’s call to write this book! It has served to clear the fog in my heart and mind when it comes to studying God’s Word, and I absolutely cannot wait to purchase many more copies for the women in my life who I know will love it too!”
Bethany Dillon, singer/songwriter

“This book responds to the feelings-driven, me-centered approach that has too often dominated our study of the Scriptures. Jen encourages women to grow in knowledge of the Word in order to know our Lord. She speaks out of her own joyful and growing experience of learning to dig in. May her voice be joined by many others!”
Kathleen B. Nielson, Director of Women’s Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition

“Reading the Bible can sometimes seem daunting. There are difficult passages, many interpretations, and often so little time to read thoroughly. Jen Wilkin recognizes this and provides tools to help us navigate it all. Women of the Word gives us a blueprint for Bible literacy. If we want to know the God we love, we must engage our minds and know his Word where he reveals himself. Wilkin’s tools may be new for some, but the effort will be worth the reward. Ultimately, it’s about seeing and savoring our Savior.”
Trillia Newbell, author, United: Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity and Fear and Faith

“Jen Wilkin’s book is written with a winsomeness and warmth, which makes it easy to read. But she also writes with clarity of purpose that rightly pushes the reader to want to read God’s Word well. The bottom line: this book encourages women to know God better by developing good habits of reading his Word. Amen, sister!”
Jenny Salt, Dean of Students, Sydney Missionary and Bible College

“How can we go deeper than a little dabbling in the Bible for inspiration? Jen Wilkin shows us how in this must-read for every woman interested in teaching and leading Bible discussion groups in your church.”
Nancy Guthrie, Bible Teacher; author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series

5.0 out of 5 stars What a FABULOUS tool!
By The Forgiven Former Feminist on February 5, 2018
Women of the Word is the first of Jen Wilkin's books that I read and I have to say, it has revolutionized how I look at the Word of God. In Women of the Word, Jen clearly and succinctly explains why all Christians (not just pastors and teachers) should study the Word of God. On page 45 she writes,

"Both false teachers and secular humanist rely on biblical ignorance for their messages to take root, and the modern church has proven fertile ground for those messages."

I could not agree more! She goes on to explain how to go about studying the Word in a way that is effective and practical. Wilkin teaches how to study God's Word with purpose, perspective, patience, process, and prayer. She gives a detailed description (including pictures!) of how she writes and marks so that the reader has a good understanding of it. I also LOVE the fact that Jen doesn't claim that everyone in the church is a teacher. She reminds readers that teachers will be held to a higher standard (James 3:1) and that we need to ensure that we are making disciples of the Word not fans of the teacher.

Overall, I would give Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin a solid A+. I think that every women's Bible study group should read through this book before anything else to ensure that they really are learning the Word with their hearts and minds equally. I also think that this book would be a great resource for a spiritually young believer. I wouldn't recommend it for a brand new believer but someone that is ready to learn and grow on their own could greatly benefit from this methodology
