Review: Ephesians

A while back, I posted a review of a Discover Together Bible Study on the book of Revelation.

I'm back today to talk about another study by Sue Edwards, this one titled Ephesians: Discovering Your Identity and Purpose in Christ.

In all likelihood, it is the subject matter, but I am really enjoying this study.  I struggled a lot more with the Revelation one.

The features of the study are similar.  It is set up so that you can do it alone or with a group.  Each chapter includes an online video (that I love!), a reading assignment, and a bunch of questions.  Each chapter also includes material on the side of the pages that varies from quotes that expand on the topics being covered to some assignments that require additional reading or research.

It is totally up to you as to how involved you get with the study.  I like that.

Each chapter requires an hour or two for reading, watching, answering the study questions, and at least skimming the extra materials.  From what I've seen, those digging deeper assignments could take a pretty significant amount of time (I haven't been doing them!)

The other amazing part is that you can join an online study group, so that you can "meet" with other women and discuss what you are discovering through this study.

I love that this is a study I actually can do alone.  So many things I have tried do not really work out that way, but this title does.  I will be looking into Luke, Psalms, Proverbs... really, any additional studies she puts out.

Join the online Bible study (4/15 -5/7) with Sue Edwards! And invite your friends to join you.

Between April 15 and June 17 Sue will be posting weekly on the Year of Discovery Facebook Page and interacting with groups and individuals around the country going through the study at the same time. Women will be able to discuss the study with each other and ask questions via Facebook.

Completing each lesson requires about one-and-a-half hours. Readers still receive in-depth Bible study but with a minimum time commitment. For those who desire a more thorough study, including an opportunity to learn more about the history, culture and geography related to the Bible, Edwards has provided “Digging Deeper” questions. Answering these questions may require outside resources such as an atlas, Bible dictionary or concordance and challenge readers to examine complex theological issues and differing views more closely.

More about the Ephesians study: This insightful Bible study uses the example of Paul’s church in Ephesus to show readers how they can be victorious Christians, living in God’s Word, and free from sin. Part of the discovery series, the Ephesians edition includes tips for either individual or group use, inspirational sidebars and short, 3-5 minute teaching videos.

Purchase a copy of Ephesians and join the on-line Bible study today.
