One of the interesting review opportunities I’ve had this season is the four-part Inscribed Bible Study series. These are studies written by women (more unusual than you might think) and are inspired by this cool passage from the book of Proverbs:
“Stay focused, do not lose sight of mercy and truth…meditate on them so they are written upon your heart.” (Proverbs 3:3)
I love just about anything inspired by Proverbs – it appeals to my practical side – so I was excited when these books hit my mailbox.
As with anything with the word “study” in the title, there are moments of deep insight in these pages…and a few places where I thought, “Why on earth would anybody need to know that?” But given how life shifts and seasons change and we’re never the exact same person from one day to the next, I’ve learned that what seems banal now might be life changing the next time I pick up the book. So I tried to roll with it when a few pages didn’t interest me.
Bottom line, I learned a lot, was entertained by these writers, and am glad to have these books in my collection. Worth checking out for anyone interested in exploring the Bible.
