We are extremely satisfied with 'The Women of Faith' series of books. Our current study 'Living Above Worry and Stress', is wonderful! We're looking forward to using one of the many 'Women of Faith' studies for our women's bible study group.
purchased these books for a women's small group because the format seemed simple and easy to use ... I have been somewhat disappointed because they take a "popcorn" approach to bible study [question here, an answer there ... ] -- a topical question or issue is address with random verses as though someone sat with a concordance and selected verses as "answers" without considering the context of the verses. We've been able to learn from the study by expanding our consideration of the verses suggested to include the surrounding contest - in some cases we've concluded that the author/editor was proof-texting. I think another time I will seek bible study materials that go more into depth with one character or book of the bible.
The ladies in my group like these studies and the open discussion that comes from them. They enjoy the "trinkets to treasure" (I do real trinkets for them). We will do another Women of Faith after this one!
