I lead a Women's Bible Study and this is showing us the beauty and strength that God brings out of you when you follow His will. It talks about the area and I brought a map showing how big the area was that Esther came from and how through it all God always uses ordinary people and puts them where He wants them to be and at the right time His work is shown to all the world. It has 25 lessons and takes about 1 hour per lesson. It opens up for discussion on other topics that come up while doing it. It can also be done individually at home.
If you are feeling spiritually dry, maybe even weary, and don't know where to go in the Word, this devotional can really refresh and get you back on track. I'm amazed at the amount of detail Elizabeth George goes into. A solid devotional to commit to for a short while!
We (women at my church) are using this study book for our Small Groups on Wednesday evenings. This is something new for us and have had a tremendous out pouring of interest. The price is great, and the book will be used by women of all ages.
I enjoyed this Bible study the most off all Elizabeth George's study books. There is great information about the times and what was happening. She explains each chapter very well and I felt like I finally understood what Esther may have gone through. A great study!
