The Bible in 52 Weeks: A Yearlong Bible Study for Women – Dr. Kimberly D. Moore

description

★★★★ ½

You’re not helpless; you’re not hopeless. You are a strong and powerful overcomer, and you deserve everything God has in store for you.

Let’s face it – the Bible is intimidating.

It’s long.

The language is unfamiliar.

The interpretations can be confusing as all get-out.

It has become the great white whale for many a person – something that you’ve always wanted to get but just can’t grasp.

Dr Kimberly D. Moore is a pastor at Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church and has spent much of her life reading (and rereading) the bible. And she gets it how tough it can be to read the Bible.

It’s easy to be skeptical when the odds are stacked against you.

And so she’s written this book to help out Christian women who want to learn and understand.

Whether you read it alone or with a bible study group, this guide will help you through the entire Bible in a single year.

She selected readings for six days per week – each about about 15-20 minutes – and wrote introductions to those sections as well as guiding questions designed to enhance your understanding of the readings.

Not everyone is equipped to do all the same things you do. You bring a little, and I’ll bring the rest…

Overall – I really liked this book.

I was sent a review copy, so I didn’t follow the book quite as instructed (aka, I didn’t power-read the Bible in order to match every weekly section of this book) but I did read Moore’s book from cover to cover.

I was pleasantly surprised regarding this book.

Each week’s theme was different and provided a unique interpretation of that week’s readings.

I feel like so many books like these can come off as preachy or judgmental – but that was not the case at all. It ended up being so much better than that.

loved the tone and the way the author wrote the introductions for each week – I felt (dare I say it) empowered by this book.

I really liked it – and I look forward to going through it again – this time while reading the Bible and following along with this book once I have more time.

So tap into your girl power and be who God created you to be.

With thanks to the Callisto Publisher’s Club, Rockridge Press and the author for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
