5 Stars Out Of 5
Excellent for Teaching Girls to Study the Bible
February 22, 2015
In A Girl's Guide to Discovering Her Bible, author Elizabeth George provides moms and small group leaders with the perfect resource for teaching girls to study the Bible and helping them discover the riches of His Word. And it's perfect for girls to read and work through on their own.
I highly recommend this book because it's a great format for a girl on her own, for a mom and daughter to work through together, or for a small group study. George shows girls the importance of Bible study and helps them begin to develop healthy Bible study habits.
One of the best things about this book is that it leads girls, step-by-step through a study of the Proverbs 31 woman, a biblical role model, and other significant passages. In doing so, George helps girls learn to ask questions of the biblical text, investigating what it meant to the original audience and how we can apply those principles today. She leads girls through that application process and teaches them how to pray through the Scriptures they're studying. It's just an amazing resource!
If I had to pick one book to help my daughter learn to study the Bible for herself, this would probably be it. In fact, it's one I plan to buy two copies of and begin working through with my daughter. If I find myself in need of some materials for a girls' small group, this will probably be my first choice. You just can't go wrong with a resource that teaches girls how to study the Bible for themselves--in a way they can understand and replicate on their own.
