Women long for healthy, deep relationships with those around them. Knowing what those look like can be tricky, however. Where do we go to seek them? How can we approach them? How can we maintain those relationships, despite our own weaknesses?
In Sue Edward's Bible study of Paul's letter to the Philippians, you'll discover the virtues needed for authentic connections - trust, humility, healthy self-sacrifice, and a generous spirit. The study also sheds light on how to overcome toxic killers like envy, comparison, and critical attitudes.
The video lessons are on YouTube and can be accessed through the website www.discovertogetherseries.com or by using the QR codes found in the study guide. Free leader's guide also available on website, www.discovertogetherseries.com.

From the back cover: Discovering Joy Through Relationship.
Paul's brief letter to Philippi highlights what strengthens authentic connections -- skills like trust, humility, appropriate self-sacrifice, and generosity. It also sheds light on how to overcome toxic connection-killers like envy, comparison, and a critical spirit.
Join Sue Edwards on this inductive study of Philippians, where you will discover how to find and maintain beloved, organic, healthy community.
Sue Edwards' book is not an in-depth analysis of the whole book. Rather "Philippians" is eight studies focusing on the main topics Paul presented and are designed to provide a better understanding of just what the book is all about. By looking at what Paul had to say to the believers at Philippi we can apply what he was teaching them to our lives today. It is worth the time to sit and study this book and Sue Edwards has given us a marvelous tool in this study book. I recommend this book highly.
Completing each lesson requires about one-and-a-half hours. Readers still receive in-depth Bible study but with a minimum time commitment. For those who desire a more thorough study, including an opportunity to learn more about the history, culture and geography related to the Bible, Ms. Edwards has provided Digging Deeper questions. Answering these questions may require outside resources such as an atlas, Bible dictionary or concordance and challenge readers to examine complex theological issues and differing views more closely.

This is the first Discover Together Bible study I have come across. I love inductive Bible studies, those that guide you to find the answers for yourself within Scripture. I find it to be a very rewarding method of Scripture study. Rather than reading someone else's interpretation of the Bible, you are digging into it yourself and making your own connections.
This particular one is all about how we find joy through the relationships around us and how those relationships help us through difficult times in our lives.
It is kind of hard to do this as an individual study. It really is geared towards a small group, There are plenty of external sources you can use: videos through the website or accessed by a QR code, as well as leader guides.
Overall, it is a good inductive study, but more geared to the small group, not the individual seeker.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thought Provoking In Depth Study in PhilippiansJanuary 11, 2016Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been working through this Bible study and I really am enjoying it. Sue opens with "How to Get the Most Out of a Discover Bible Study". Then "Why study Philippians?". Each Lesson has an Optional memory verse in the chapter you are studying. She begins the lesson with an introduction, a passage of Scripture to read and then lots of questions to get you into your Bible. There are some illustrations. Also a section off on the margins called Digging Deeper in which you can spend more time if you like studying different content that relates to the lesson. Sue also includes quotes from other authors or herself that apply to the lesson. There is also plenty of room for journaling and answering the questions.
Randomly throughout there are video sessions you can watch at Discovering Together Series. In these videos which last from 10-15 minutes, Sue talks and explains details related to the lesson or the book of the Bible.
The book consists of 8 total lessons. These can be done as quickly or as slowly as you like. You can take your time and meditate in depth on each lesson as God leads or do a quick question and answer session. The videos are free but also optional. Paul's joy in spite of his suffering and chains is evident throughout as well as the unity he has with other believers. How does he remain joyful? Deep study will help you understand Paul's secret to contentment.
I really have enjoyed this study. And would like to do some other ones that Sue has to offer. She has plenty of the available. This can be done as a personal study, or a small group study if preferred. Sue will get your wheels turning and your thinking cap on, and hopefully you will emerge from the study with a better knowledge of the book of Philippians, Paul's life, and also a little more mature in your Spiritual walk.
I was blessed with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to review it positively and no other compensation was provided.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another excellent study in this seriesJanuary 11, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are a couple aspects of this Bible study I really like. The first relates to the whole Discover Together Bible Study series. The amount of time an individual can put into the study is varied. There is a basic level of participation that takes about fifteen minutes a day. For those who have more time and want to dig deeper, there are additional questions and resources exploring additional theological issues. Regardless of how busy one is, there is a level of study and participation that will work.
What I like about this particular study on Philippians is the emphasis on relationships. Edwards focuses on Paul's strong relationship with God and his deep friendship with the Philippians. She highlights the need for face-to-face community in this age of technology.
Edwards deals with issues of personal spiritual growth as well. For example, she notes that in Phil. 3:12-13 Paul is very open about his own limitations and inadequacies. She asks us if we struggle to admit ours. That could lead to a great discussion in a trusted group of friends.
There are lots of application questions in this study, taking Scripture and applying it to everyday life. There are questions like, How can you act on this? There are lots of good discussion and reflection questions too.
This study can be used on an individual basis or in a group. Group leaders can download a free guide to aid in leading. There are short videos to watch, linked with a QR code (or accessed at the study website). There are verses that can be memorized too.
This is a great eight week study reminding us of our need for community, using Paul as an example.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
