I've used many different published studies, this one is near the top of the list, if not the top. When I ordered, I wasn't sure if it would be "meaty". In the past I've appreciated Dr Stanley and rationalized this could be passed on to another, if I found it elementary. He uses alot of scripture references that support principles. Each chapter usually has a Bible story where principle is seen. He is very encouraging, causes me to ponder/mediatate, study is put together well. Other studies may have half the content (being generous) and cost more. I believe everyone can benefit from using this.
