      My friends and I are enjoying using this book for a small group Bible Study. We are enjoying learning about the Jewish wedding customs. I like the way it is written. It is a good mix of history and biblical teaching and modern day analogies. It is very interesting and holds everyone's attention.

      Wonderful book for group or individual study. Parallels a first century Jewish wedding and the Bride of Christ in an easy to understand way.

      An excellent book (for women especially) - privately or in Bible study group! The ladies in our group all agree that 'Chosen & Cherished' is the best study we have covered over the past few years, although we were also blessed by the other New Hope Publisher book, 'Mary & Martha: Sisters in Christ,' and are looking forward to studying 'Women of the Covenant' in the new year. 'Chosen & Cherished' has been enlightening, reassuring and challenging - all at the same time. My sincere thanks to the authors; God bless you!

      Blending the wedding traditions of biblical times with personal illustrations, CHOSEN AND CHERISHED challenges the reader to draw nearer to Jesus as she learns to take her place as His bride. Thoroughly infused with scripture the book is ideal for small group Bible studies and a wonderful gift for any woman--single or married.

      Before I began this book with talented co-authors Joy Brown and Kimberly Sowell, I had not realized how much of the Old Testament imagery applied to Christ in the New Testament. This is a "must-read" for every bride on your list--and for anyone with an anniversay this year.
