DebFoster5 Stars Out Of 5I want to study every book of the bible this wayMarch 29, 2017DebFosterQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was my first "Word Writers" study but it won't be my last! So simple and inviting, yet so encouraging and helpful. The author breaks the book of James into a concise 25 day study in which she entertains with personal story, encourages with scripture, and challenges with personal reflective questions. We are invited to study James verse by verse in an inductive type method, without having all the different colored pens! :) She links the verses in James with additional related scriptures, directs us to consider and write out each verse, then completes each day with a personal prayer.
The content is direct,scriptural, engaging, and not padded with extra "fluff" or rabbit trails. Solid. I'm also a bit of a book geek and I really like my books to look good and feel good in my hands. This book delivers. The fonts, the images, the coloring, and shading are all attractive and inviting. There's even a built in bookmark and lined space in the back for writing out scripture and other notes.
Read, reflect, respond, write. That's the description on the back cover and it's precisely what the book calls us and enables us to do. Even in the crazy busyness of the day, the format and appeal of the book kept me coming back. I've shown it and recommended it to so many people. Buy it, use it, gift it. You'll be glad you did. Can't wait to order the other books in the Word Writer series!
Vicki5 Stars Out Of 5A great aid for both personal devotion time and group studyMarch 24, 2017VickiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are looking for something that helps you to read through a book of the Bible in a systematic and clear way, then this book is for you. I love that it includes daily thoughts from the author, Denise. The questions help to encourage you to apply what you read to your own life in the 21st century. I like that there is a prayer written for the reader to make their own prayer. I have enjoyed the addition of the blank pages at the back for space to write the word myself which has been additional way to meditate on the scripture for the day. It also helps that the focus is on just a few verses a day. This means the amount of scripture reading is manageable and allows for time to let the words soak into your heart and mind, rather than rushing through a large chunk of scripture, just so you can say you've read it.
The book is laid out so that 5 daily readings are covered each week. I found this helpful as it meant that if for some reason I missed a day or too, there was still time to keep up.
I found it helpful to use in my own morning devotional time and enjoyed meeting up with a couple of friends (who were also using the book in their own time) to share together what we were learning and encouraging each other to keep in the Word. We are all interested in buying more of these study books for personal and group use.
Tzigane5 Stars Out Of 5Diving into James... word by wordMarch 24, 2017TziganeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have seen the Word Writers series off and on for a while now but wasn't sure if I would like the setup of the study or if they would be too overwhelming for me. But I wanted something that would help me dive deeper into a single book of the Bible at one time. By choosing James, I was really hoping to gain more insight into the book and learn more about what James says about growing deeper in my faith.
I really enjoyed working through this study and gaining new understanding of the book of James. I like the way it is set-up by day, so you can start whenever (it doesn't have to be a specific date). Also the days are not too intense. And probably my favorite part of the entire study is actually writing out the book of James verse by verse!
I plan to purchase the other books in the Word Writers series and complete them. As the Ladies Bible study leader at my church I have also given consideration to taking my group through one or more of the studies.
Thanks to the James study, I have started writing out the verses for a few of the other Bible studies I am doing at this time.
**Thank you to the author and publisher for providing me with a copy of this study for free. All opinions are my own.**
Dayna H.5 Stars Out Of 5Such a great studyMarch 24, 2017Dayna H.Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This bible study is time really well-spent! It systematically goes through the highly relevant book of James. Denise's opening devotions are insightful and the cross references are helpful to understanding the passages. The suggested prayers are focused and encouraging. Best of all, the back of the book has lovely lined pages to write out the day's passage.
This is a beautiful volume for anyone wishing to go deeper into God's Word.
Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Observation, Interpretation, Application, SaturationMarch 24, 2017Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bible study is a hands-on affair. It requires a careful reading of the text -- and then, multiple re-readings in order to arrive at a clear understanding of the author's (and the Author's) intent. In the Word Writers series, Denise Hughes argues that the additional step of writing (copying by hand) the words of Scripture as you study them will also enhance the learning process. She calls it "saturation," and I agree wholeheartedly. There's something about forming the letters, adding the commas, noting the repetition of words and phrases that slows me down and aids comprehension. I even find that it helps with memorization and retention!
With an engaging introduction, enlightening commentary, questions that encourage a deep dig, and a suggested prayer that applies the truth, each day of this 25-part study of the book of James drew me into a greater appreciation for the highly practical teaching James offers.
