InScribed Bible Study Collection – Book Review

If you are looking for a fabulous women’s Bible Study to delve into this season, I am delighted to introduce you to a new series from Thomas Nelson that will encourage you to delve deep into God’s Word and address your real-life needs and concerns – whatever they might be!

That series is called the InScribed Collection. Its purpose is to help women who are passionate about God to immerse themselves in the person of Jesus Christ and to learn how they can find the answers to the unique needs and issues they face on a daily basis in God’s Word.

The concept for the Bible Studies was inspired by Proverbs 3:3:

Stay focused; Do not lose sight of mercy and truth…
Meditate on them so they are written upon your heart.

The Voice

Four Bible studies are currently available in the InScribed Collection:

  • Amazed and Confused – When God’s Actions Collide With Our Expectations
  • Dive Deeper – Finding Deep Faith Beyond Shallow Religion
  • Leaving Ordinary – Encounter God Through Extraordinary Prayer
  • Living So That – Making Faith Filled Choices In The Midst Of A Messy Life

Four additional studies are scheduled for release in Fall 2014.

Information about each of these individual studies follows. You’ll find each study is engaging and challenging, whether you are reading them individually or as part of a larger group study.

I highly recommend this series to you and rate each of these books 5 out of 5 stars.

Amazed And Confused – Book Review

Amazed and Confused

Amazed and Confused – When God’s Actions Collide When our Expectations by Heather Zempel takes us on a systematic journey where few modern Bible teachers dare to tread.

Amazed and Confused leads us straight into the Minor Prophets, deep into the book of Habakkuk, where we examine God’s sometimes confusing responses to our prayers, and takes a hard look at that frequently asked question:

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Heather grabs our attention at the start of this study with this startling statement:

God is not nice.

If you want to deepen your understanding of God and – perhaps – see Him through fresh eyes – this study is for you!

About Heather Zempel

Heather Zempel is the discipleship pastor at National Community Church in Washington, DC where she oversees small groups, directs leadership development training, and serves on the weekend teaching team. She is the author of Sacred Roads: Exploring the Historic Paths of Discipleship and Community is Messy.

Leaving Ordinary – Book Review

Leaving Ordinary

If you are seeking deeper intimacy with God – if you want to strengthen your prayer life – if you want to understand what true worship is all about – then Leaving Ordinary – Encounter God Through Extraordinary Prayer by Donna Gaines is the Bible Study for you.

Leaving Ordinary shows us what God taught the Israelites about worship and prayer through a study of the Tabernacle and its articles – and teaches us how to intimately interact with God in a way that leads to true worship.

Donna writes:

When we pray, God begins to orchestrate things in the spirit realm that eventually manifest in the physical.

This study will transform your relationship with God.

Living So That – Book Review

Living So That

Living So That – Making Faith-Filled Choices In The Midst Of A Messy Life by Wendy Blight is a unique Bible study that’s designed to help us live out what we learn in the Bible so that we can impact the world around us.

Wendy accomplishes this by taking us through a study of several of the powerful “so that” verses of Scripture:

  • Jesus Came So That…
  • God Spoke So That…
  • Pray So That…
  • Trials Come So That…
  • Let Your Light Shine So That…

One of Wendy’s goals in this study is to help us make faith-filled choices, regardless of the trials and circumstances in our lives.

Living So That is a fresh and practical study that offers women biblical perspective and wisdom for their daily lives.

    Wow! These look really good. How long are they? (Are they meant for a certain number of group studies with homework between or do they have a different format?) Thanks for sharing this with us at Booknificent Thursday!
