The Power of Knowing God is part of a series in short - 6-week, no-homework bible studies. Kay Arthur is well-known for her particular method of in-depth bible study. PRECEPT ministries and their inductive Bible studies walk you through the bible slowly and deliberately, not letting you miss a single word or inference.
I worked through another one of these studies, Fatal Distractions: Conquering Destructive Temptations, and LOVED it. Although the book is set up the same way - with all the text, instructions, scripture, in one handy place -it took me longer to work through this one. (meaning, since I was doing it alone and not as part of a small group - with accountability, I put it off ...)
The marking words, underlining, squiggling and circling seemed a little tedious this time around, but overall it is an excellent study. It serves as a good reminder if you already know the information, reinforcing the truth....
Although I am giving this one a 4 - I will be trying another one of these studies - the format makes it perfect for popping in your purse for those inevitable waiting time.
This book contains six lessons covering the following attributes of God:
God is self-existent, self-sufficient and creator
God is sovereign
God is all omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent
God is righteousness, justice and truth
God is love
God is holy
This book was provided to me at no cost for the purpose of review by Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing.
"The Power of Knowing God" is a no homework, 6-week-long Bible study. It's designed for small groups to do together once a week in a 40 minute period. The Bible study let Scripture speak for itself and was careful to keep the studied verses in context. It examined what God said about Himself in the Bible in both the Old and New Testament.
The study had people read several verses (which were included in the book along with information about the context of the verses), mark/highlight certain words, then answer several questions about what was just read. Insight boxes were included with word study information that helped make a verse or point more understandable.
The questions were helpful in focusing attention on all the points that needed to be looked at. In case you missed a point, the "wrap up" section at the end of each week's lesson summarized what was learned that week.
I enjoyed this study and thought it was well-written and made good points. I'd recommend this Bible study to all Christians. It's a good reminder if you already know it, but it'll really strengthen your walk with God if you didn't know it.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
THE POWER OF KNOWING GOD by Kay Arthur..... If you enjoy a good Bible study this is an ideal book for you. A Bible study that will enlighten you to knowing God and the power of knowing Him. The book is set-up into 6 week Bible study sessions, but you can do them at your own pace and go as deep in the study as you wish and as long as you want. This Bible study can be studied by a couple of people or small groups in a 40 minute time period or however you want, you are not restricted to set study method. There is no homework to do, as in some studies. You get the scriptures that will be studied, but don't forget your Bibles, and also sections of discussion questions and suggestions to observe from the scriptures.
I enjoyed this book very much and feel that you will get to know the power of God. Enjoy and Praise God for studies like this.
