Women of the Word
How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds
Jen Wilkin
Lost about how to really study the Bible and feeling like what she knew barely scratched the surface, the author started on a journey to learn how to study the Bible more effectively. She begins by pointing out several hit or miss methods and shows how they can be inadequate. She then outlines five steps to learning how to read and study the Bible with purpose. The next five chapters follow these five steps. The book ends with a conclusion how how to studying the scriptures points us to our Savior.

I have often fallen into some of the "unhelpful habits" that the author mentioned. This little book really helped give me perspective and clarity. I enjoyed her friendly, common sense approach. It felt more like a chat with a friend than a lecture. The points that she brings out are not only helpful, but spot on in terms of getting the scripture to apply to our hearts AND minds. It's definitely a book I'll be keeping and sharing with others.

I received this book free of charge from Crossway in exchange for my honest review.
