We used this for our Ladies Bible Study. Liz's humor set a great tone for understanding the Biblical truth and gave new insight into the book of Ruth. New believers will find it intriguing and easy to understand and learn, and mature believers will see a new twist to Ruth and her story from a new viewpoint. Very Biblical, very easy to grasp, very fun way to learn the story of Ruth -- absolutely must try it!!! Great for young moms right through the grandma's.
I lead a church group of 12 women in my home once a week. We read the book and answer the questions as our homework assignment. We find the questions thought-provoking and enlightening. We also watch the DVD of Liz Curtis Higgs teaching each lesson. She has given us a different perspective of the book of Ruth and stimulates our discussions. We hope she will write more books of this type.
Liz Curtiss Higgs is the embodiment of what we learned in Howard Hendricks "Living by the Book" study. She totally immerses herself in the Word and takes us with her. My ladies can see all the techniques that Howard taught us used in this study. Her humor in her writing as well as the video is refreshingly honest.
We are using this study for our Women's Bible Study. The way Liz presents the material you see the book of Ruth in a new light. We have thoroughly enjoyed the study. The DVD component adds an extra dimension to the study.
