Revelation Discover Together Bible Study by Sue Edwards

About Discover Together Bible Study: Women need Bible study to keep balanced, focused and Christ-centered in their busy worlds. However, many find it difficult to set aside the time and discipline needed for an in-depth study. The Discover Together studies offer tiered questions to allow readers to choose a depth of study that fits with their individual lifestyles or schedules, even if they vary by the week, month or season 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. Scan the video QR code in the book with a smart phone or visit the series website to watch Sue provide historical and cultural background, teach important truths found in each week's lesson, or ask thoughtful questions to encourage deeper discussion. Link to buy the book: Join the online Bible study here. Just LIKE the page and then follow along. There will be a launch party for Ephesians on April 11th and the online Bible study will begin the following week on April 15th. Women crave Bible studies that challenge them to grow in their faith. But after balancing carpools, sports schedules, or work deadlines, you may not be able to commit to another evening out of the house. Now you don't have to. Whether studying with a small group or by yourself, you know can join popular Bible teacher Sue Edwards on the Year of Discovery. Sue will be leading women through her studies with online chats and discussions on her Facebook page. All year long. Every week. Any time of day. From the comfort of home. Make-up and hair-do optional. Come as you are! Each week you will find quotes, links to articles and other resources, and videos to help you as you study. Complete the lessons at your convenience. Then visit any time of day to comment or ask questions. Sue will be there frequently to respond, encourage, and equip!

My Take:  This Bible Study is a totally new concept for me.  Taking a Bible Study online through Facebook.  I have always wanted to learn alittle more about Revelation and this Bible Study seemed to be the perfect way.  The book is set up in a very similar way  that most Bible Studies are these days.  The chapters are suppose to take about an hour and 1/2 to complete if you sit and do them all at once.  But I have been working on these a little bit at a time as I find the time throughout the week.  the questions really make you think.  In the Sidebar are questions for digging deeper which I intend on going back and working through those questions once I am finished with the study.  I haven't really been able to really take advantage of the whole online aspect of this study although I do read the questions and think about them.  My favorite part are the qr codes that are sprinkled through out the study.  It is fun scanning the codes and then watching the video that pops up.  Kind of like a scavenger hunt. I am learning alot from this study and look forward to participating in future studies by Sue Edwards.

I received a review copy of this book.  Opinions are my own.
