Product Description

Lois and Eunice are memorialized in one single verse in the Bible which speaks of Timothy, a second generation leader in the early church, receiving his faith from his mother and grandmother. You can influence a member of your family - son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild - in a similar way. In this five-session study you will discover that the Bible teaches by examples that handing on the faith to your family is your primary responsibility. This study can be done individually, with a friend, or in a group.

Publisher's Description

Lois and Eunice followed the numerous Scriptures instructing one generation to pass on their faith to the next generation, and young Timothy grew up to be a second-generation leader of the early church. Often mentoring focuses on reaching out to others, but as parents and grandparents the first line of mentoring should be within your own family, a concept repeated throughout the Bible. The Bible has many devastating examples of parents who were poor role models or didn’t rear their children to know God, as well good and faithful parents whose children wandered away from God. Face-to-Face with Lois and Eunice focuses on how women today can be grandmothers, mothers, aunts, and mentors whose faith takes root in the next generation.

    This Bible Study book is divided into five sessions - which are each broken down into five "days" per session. Each day's worth of reading/studying is a manageable amount for personal study. Within each session there are quotes (some from different books), On Your Own sections (with Bible verses and personal questions), M&M's (which deals with mentors/mentees), "Face-to-Face Reflections", Personal Parables ("real-life" stories that pertain to the Bible study), and Mentoring Moments.

    At the end of the book there is a guide for leading a group Bible Study on the book, which I thought was laid out really nicely.

    Face-to-Face with Lois and Eunice deals with family relationships and the importance of passing on our beliefs to our children/grandchildren. It also has a session on dealing with our "prodigals" - how to pray for them, and learning to forgive them and "leave it to God". It also teaches us how to mentor to the younger generation (our own children, and others that may look up to us as a mentor.)

    I really thought that this Bible study would be good to use individually as well as in a group study. The small questions, etc. geared towards the Mentor/Mentee relationship (in my opinion) seemed a little "awkward" and just seemed to be "thrown in there" sometimes - but as a whole, did not detract from the book. I thought there were plenty of really good verses to look up, and lots of great questions included in each session. The only other thing that I didn't care for (again, this is just my personal opinion, you may think differently) was the amount of references to the author's other books that were included. It was almost like advertisements to go buy her other books (which are probably really good books, and worth reading_but I still found the references to be sort of annoying.) But_in the author's defense, the quotes that were from her other books and included in these 2 books were relevant to the Bible studies. (And there were plenty of quotes from other books/authors, as well.)

    Overall, I think this is a good Bible Study book, and would recommend that you try it out! I would rate it "3.5 out of 5 stars".
