helps young women discover riches of God's Word
Do you know a young woman who wants to learn how to study the Bible? If so, Elizabeth George's new book, A Young Woman's Guide to Discovering the Bible, is the perfect gift. Both instructional and practical, it will get young women studying the Bible on their own in record time.
George begins with her own testimony of discovering the riches of God's Word and then moves in to a discussion of the importance of Bible study and the basics of Bible study. With her encouraging and conversational tone, George shows young women that, as they seek God in His Word, they will know Him more and find encouragement, comfort, guidance, strength, and wisdom. After teaching some Bible study basics, George leads young women to study the lives of Bible characters, like Miriam, Esther, the Proverbs 31 woman, and even Jesus, helping them practice their newly learned Bible study skills. I love the fact that George doesn't just give instructions. She guides women through the process, equipping them to be able to repeat the process on their own.
I also appreciate the way George introduces young women to different types of literature in the Bible as well as the basics of Bible study like: context, observation, interpretation, and application. And the Appendix, "How to Study the Bible" pulls all of the principles together in one reference guide. That alone is an amazing resource for young women to have at their disposal. There's also another appendix with a daily Bible reading plan.
This is a wonderful discipleship tool for young women, and it's one I'll be recommending for one-on-one and small group discipleship and mentoring. Thanks, Mrs. George, for another amazing resource.
