Great study! There is a good amount of digging into Scripture and really thinking. The response sections challenge you to look deeper at yourself and not be superficial. My ladies group is enjoying this study and participating with quite a bit of conversation.
I really wanted a bible study that emphasized the scriptures and wasn't mainly the thoughts of the author.
This bible study dissects faith into categories and provides scripture to go along with it. Another thing that I loved about this book was that it didn't focus on "women" issues and how God relates to them. I find that many women bible studies somehow tie in things like marriage and children, but since I have neither I find it frustrating to find a study that I can connect with. This bible study could even be title Becoming a Person of Faith, it just dealt with God's word and our hearts. I like it very much and I've grown a lot!
This is a very encouraging and motivating book! I was always excited to work through the next chapter, and i really felt like God was speaking to me through it. I would recommend this book not only to women who think they need to grow in their faith, but to anyone who wants a great study guide.
I actually had someone give me this book some time back and just read it recently. That prompted me to buy another copy to pass along to a close friend! It's a great book and awesome tool for strengthening our faith... I highly recommend it to all women!
I have had the privilege of leading other "Cynthia Heald's"group Bible studies. And "Becoming a Woman of Faith" is another great Bible study. If you want to build your faith you need this book. If you are going through a trial, you need this book. Cynthia Heald digs deep into the reasons why "we live by faith". Give yourself a blessing, do this Bible study. And bless others with it, get a group together. My husband and I are going through a big trial, a testing of our faith right now and I'm, now, leading this study with 3 other ladies. It is stregthening my faith. Even though this study is meant for woman, I gave a book to my husband and told him that he needs to do this. So he is doing the study on his own. I believe this book will benifit both men and women. I can't wait to do more of the "Becoming a Woman Of... books". Looking forward to "Becoming a Woman of Grace" next. Blessings
