Named: The Women – Small Group & Workbook Review

Are you looking for an innovative Bible Study that is:

  • Structured for both Individual and Small Group use?
  • Designed to help you get to know the people of the Bible better?
  • Able to help you understand how their stories relate to our lives?

If so, I have the perfect resource for you!

Named is a 6-week Small Group Resource and Bible Study like no other. Through the imaginative retelling of familiar stories from Scripture, powerful videos, and thought-provoking discussion questions, Named helps individuals and small groups explore the mysteries of faith and learn how God’s story finds its place in them!

Four versions of the Named Bible Study are currently available:

  • The Disciples
  • The Patriarchs
  • The Unnamed
  • The Women

Each 6-week study explores 6 Bible characters that fit into the designated Named category.

This review covers Named: The Women – a unique study that explores the lives of 6 Old Testament women:

  • Hagar
  • Miriam
  • Ruth
  • Esther
  • Rahab
  • Deborah
The Women - DVD & Discussion Guide

Review Copy

Named: The Women consists of the following materials:

  • The Women Small Group DVD, which contains 6 videos and audio recordings and supplemental material.
  • A Discussion Guide (which comes with the DVD).
  • A Workbook for Individuals and Small Groups. The workbook contains readings and journaling exercises.

Everyone who participates in the study will need a copy of the Workbook. If you are leading the study, or if you are participating in the study as an individual, you will also need a copy of the DVD and Discussion Guide.

If you are the type of person who loves stories – if you love reading historical fiction-based Bible stories where writers use their sanctified imagination to bring Bible stories and Bible characters to life – if you love imagining what it would be like to walk in another person’s shoes or you strive to imagine how the stories of old apply to your life today – you will love Named!

Named: The Women truly brings the stories of these 6 Bible women to life. In The Women Workbook, you’ll start by reading the Key Scripture passages that tell each woman’s story, then you’ll learn more about the context in which the story occurred, You’ll experience a powerful re-telling of each woman’s story, which is accompanied by short but potent videos and audios, and you’ll read more about her story. Finally, you’ll be guided through a series of questions that can be completed either in private or in a small group that help you to discover how each woman’s story resonates and finds its place in you.

As a creative individual, I loved this Bible Study and found the stories engaging and evocative. I found the structure of the study really aroused some deep-seated emotions within me and I experienced some powerful revelations during my prayer time as I was going through the study.

Completing this study left me hungry for more.

I rate this study 5 out of 5 stars.
