I have had the privilege of reading and studying alongside this book and I mean privilege. I crave books like this. Ones that intimately walk along side you as you read through scripture. It is as if I’m doing a one-on-one bible study with a good friend – except the friend is Beth Moore.
I love seeing the bible passages referenced at the beginning of each chapter, so I excitedly grab up my bible, dive in and make all of the notes that the Holy Spirit brings to my attention through the verses. Next I get to pick up Beth’s notes. (Insert sheepish grin) I’m like a nerdy college student who after reading the assignment I can’t wait for class. Except we’re diving into the Word of God and instead of becoming overwhelmed at the work load and the upcoming test, I become overwhelmed with Him. Also, the passages that have always left me scratching my head she explains so clearly. She takes the text deeper into the context and the literal translations of some of the key verses.
Many of her books are structured this way. There are many commentaries available by different authors, and maybe it’s a woman thing, but the way she writes hers are personal. She writes from the overflow of the Holy Spirit at work in her heart and that’s what I relate to.
I would recommend this book to a beginner - one who has never studied the Word of God and also to an expert - one who knows every fact about the word of God but wants to take the bible back to their heart level. It is also great for helping someone bring structure to their bible study routine or lack thereof. J
Her bible studies are best buds with my bible and I look forward diving into them every morning!
