5 Stars Out Of 5
Worth the Time
December 25, 2015
I have done several of her studies, and I have enjoyed each one. This one is more involved, and the book is noticeably thicker than the others I've done, but the author included a lot of background info to aid in teaching the material and making it more understandable and meaningful. This study took me longer to finish, but it was worth the extra time and effort. Very timely study, considering where the world is headed these days.
I am so glad I came across Sandra's "coffee cup" studies while looking for material to use for my small group. The format was not quite what I had in mind for my group, but I ended up using her studies for my personal quiet time. The format is perfect for busy mom's like me. she does an excellent job making the daily lessons manageable without being shallow. I have completed 5 of them so far--this one was probably my favorite, but they are all good. I plan on eventually doing all her coffee cup studies, And I recommend them to my friends!
This Bible study, over the 7 letters to the 7 churches in the book of Revelation, is fantastic! I love how the study is put together! The book is easy to use and allows you to take it anywhere...as the Bible verses are provided. Great questions in this study allow for learning and growth to occur. So glad I found this Bible study!!
Sumatra with the Seven Churches is a perfect Bible study if you are looking for a study that combines observation, interpretation and application of Scripture. The study is portable enough to do on my couch with a cup of coffee or on a crowded airplane or on a brief lunch break at work. Each lesson is packed with Scripture (the entire Scripture text to be studied is printed in the guide), challenging questions that make you think with your head and heart, extra historical insights to enhance the lesson, a final prayer corresponding to the week's lesson and an optional memory verse. Instead of tackling the entire book of Revelation, the authors chose to look in-depth at the seven churches in Revelation 1-3. This proves to be very relevant in considering the corporate church in the present time. The study was well-researched and multi-sensory for those who have different learning styles. The descriptions of the modern and ancient day cities were vivid and helpful. Each lesson also presents very practical applications of what is learned. Honest sharing from the authors' personal experiences made the study heartfelt and authentic. This little study contains 8 lessons with each lesson split into daily bite-sized chunks. Some days reading the Scriptural text is all that is required and other days a review of the text is presented with questions following. The study can be used as a personal devotional (which I did) or as a small group study (which would prove lively). The only thing I would change would be to have more space for answering questions as some require longer answers and have limited writing space. I received a review copy of Sumatra with the Seven Churches and overall, I would rate it as an excellent study that encourages women to think for themselves and to spend quality time in the Scripture.
