Recently, BookLook Bloggers sent me the first four books of the inScribed Studies Collection to read and review. These were written with Proverbs 3:3 in mind; “Stay focused; do not lose sight of mercy and truth… Meditate on them so they are written upon your heart.” (The Voice) Each book covers a different topic for women to study and use as they live their lives according to His purpose.
Who Can Use InScribed
The InScribed Collection is for any woman with a passion for God. Each title touches on a subject matter unique to the needs and issues that women face everyday. Whether used individually, in small accountability groups, or in larger discussion groups, women will be challenged to engage their entire person in the study and can expect life change.
Amazed and Confused by Heather Zempel – This book is a study of the book of Habakkuk, a minor Prophet. It also teaches us about how we may ask for things in prayer and sometimes we don’t always understand the answer we receive, or don’t receive.
Dive Deeper by Jenifer Jernigan – In this book, she teaches readers to dive (define, investigate, visualize, and embrace) into the Word of God. This is a great book for beginners or more advanced students of the Bible. We should not just idly accept what we hear but instead dig deeper for ourselves for a better and more complete understanding of what we study and live by.
Leaving Ordinary by Donna Gaines – The author uses the story of the tabernacle as a model to teach us how to interact with God through prayer. She also helps the readers develop a more personal, intimate even, prayer relationship with the Heavenly Father. I no longer feel embarrassed or lacking when I pray, especially out loud in front of others.
Living So That by Wendy Blight – This book is about living our lives according to the powerful “so that” verses of the Bible; for example, Matthew 5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven..” Wendy also includes several tools and sets of questions designed to take us past the “easy answers” and look closer at our own understanding.
Each of these books are wonderful and interesting on their own, but they could easily be used together as part of a wider program of study. I also think the titles are perfect for single study or in a small ladies’ group not only for support but accountability and different viewpoints.
