Our Bible Study Group at my church has been meeting for years. We were originally doing CBS Internationally recognized Bible Study. When the Director and others in leadership were moving on we scrambled for another deep study with homework . We then did Hands to the Plow Bible Studies but we finished all they had in a couple of years. 18 of us were looking around and one of the women found this study. We all absolutely love it! It explains scripture clearly asks questions to keep you delving deeper into your relationship with Jesus Christ and to ponder how much you are leaning in His direction. Homework takes a couple hours a week of reading scripture and answering questions then it takes about an hour and a half to go over questions as a group. You could do private study with this book also.
