This is my first bible study book. I chose it above the others I looked at because prayer is challenging for me. Last night I read and worked Chapter 1(at 11 pm, no less!!), and a true warm joy filled my heart. I felt, finally, God's fatherly influence. We all can read about Him, but feeling, truly feeling His presence and His unconditional love is most welcome and wonderful. I have so much more to read, feel, learn and pray about, and I look forward to other studies in this series other published studies, and to all of my life with God. Thank you.
We used this book in our women's bible study. We have about 12 ladies that meet once a week. We thought this study was done well. We like the fact that it is book and workbook rolled into one. It is easy to follow and it references the bible from the Old Testament to the New Testament. We work individually at home and then come together to read it and share our answers to the questions. Sharing our individual answers helps us to learn from each other as well. Sometimes one verse in the bible can speak differently to each one of us. Our group loves the Stonecroft studies. We have done several of them. We would recommend this to others. I think it would even be good for a teenage group as well.
This is another great study book that is part of the Stonecroft Ministries Basic Bible Studies. If you have not done any of their other studies this is a great one to start with. The questions you look up are helpful and lead you to a better understanding of the subject of prayer. There are ample references and plenty of space to fill in your answers. I usually have a notebook on the side as there is not much space to write you r answers but this book had enough space between questions that I did not need to do that.
I gave this study a 5/5 stars. I thought it had great references, good questions, and was very simple to work through. If you are looking for a study on prayer and need one that is not very long this is the perfect study for you. If you are looking for a more in-depth study on the subject of prayer this study would be a good starting point.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
