    Face-to-Face with Sarah, Rachel, and Hannah by Janet Thompson is a great devotional book when you need a refresher in how to pray!

    A lot of studies I have done in the past start with a brief paragraph about salvation and how you can become a Christian. This book does an incredible job of presenting salvation and laying out the steps better then any devotional I have read. There is not just a one page explanation but rather a well thought out section that takes you step by step. You can not put this book down saying you have not heard the way to Christ!

    This book is about prayer and how it can change our lives. You will better understand the way God answers prayer and how to become a better person while waiting for that answer. Do you make your prayer request conditional or are do you trust God with all your needs? Learning how to trust and not question is a theme throughout each chapter.

    I found that the number of passages to look up in your Bible really made this book great! You will learn so much about the woman in this study by reading passages and answering the questions the author has written for you. Start this study prepared to open your Bible and learn from the scripture!

    There are lots of help for leaders who want to use this book in a Bible study group. I would highly recommend it for ladies wanting to learn about prayer and grow in their spiritual journey.

    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.

    This Bible Study book is divided into five sessions - which are each broken down into five "days" per session. Each day's worth of reading/studying is a manageable amount for personal study. Within each session there are quotes (some from different books), On Your Own sections (with Bible verses and personal questions), M&M's (which deals with mentors/mentees), "Face-to-Face Reflections", Personal Parables ("real-life" stories that pertain to the Bible study), and Mentoring Moments.

    At the end of the book there is a guide for leading a group Bible Study on the book, which I thought was laid out really nicely.

    Face-to-Face with Sarah, Rachel, and Hannah is about how we handle ourselves and our relationship with God when we want something {really bad} and God doesn't come through {either never, or "in His own time".} This book leads us though studies (based on Sarah, Rachel and Hannah) about how to get through the following "problems" we may have: doing things "our way" versus "God's way" & bargaining with God _ and then proceeds to deal with learning to have patience (waiting on God) and making peace with God (and what His will for us may be.)

    I really thought that this Bible study would be good to use individually as well as in a group study. The small questions, etc. geared towards the Mentor/Mentee relationship (in my opinion) seemed a little "awkward" and just seemed to be "thrown in there" sometimes - but as a whole, did not detract from the book. I thought there were plenty of really good verses to look up, and lots of great questions included in each session. The only other thing that I didn't care for (again, this is just my personal opinion, you may think differently) was the amount of references to the author's other books that were included. It was almost like advertisements to go buy her other books (which are probably really good books, and worth reading_but I still found the references to be sort of annoying.) But_in the author's defense, the quotes that were from her other books and included in these 2 books were relevant to the Bible studies. (And there were plenty of quotes from other books/authors, as well.)

    Overall, I think this is a good Bible Study book, and would recommend that you try it out! I would rate it "3.5 out of 5 stars".
