Because it was John MacArthur I expected a study more insightful and challenging at the same time. The study is only O.K. and I wonder if it was written to appeal to students of the Bible who were fairly new?
This study guide is so great! It's teaching me so much with the readings in the book and side notes to explain more about the verses! It also challenges you to think about the verses and your views! I plan on getting another one of these guides after I finish this one!
We are two weeks into this study and so far it has been going really well. I compared a few other studies and selected this one because it asked questions about the scripture but also asked readers to reflect on their own life and how they view Jesus. Also, I had a non-religious friend who is a part of our study (something we love!) who came with me to compare options and this was her first choice as well. She liked how things were laid out. It does ask questions which you could answer quickly or write a whole book about. It has lead to lots of great conversations in our group. MacArthur does use some fairly scholarly language at times but I've been impressed with how our group has made an effort to look things up and then we discuss it as a group.
