DALLAS, June 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- Voracious Bible study readers, women purchase Bible studies more than do men by a ratio of five-to-one--and Gallup reports that 14 percent of Americans belong to a Bible-study group. This summer, David C Cook will release two new books in the Fresh Life series, their easy-to-use series of Bible studies for women and about women.
Perfect for every age, appropriate for groups or individual study, and intended for today's on-the-go woman, the Fresh Life series, written by Lenya Heitzig and Penny Pierce Rose, requires just 20 minutes a day for a meaningful contemplation of God's Word. The latest two books in the series, Live Relationally and Live Deeply, follow Live Intimately and Live Fearlessly, released last summer.
Live Relationally offers a fresh look at the important women of Genesis. Though women in the Bible are sometimes overlooked or downplayed, this fascinating Bible study curriculum reminds readers that women are central to God's story--and His plan. Genesis alone is peopled with women who experience death, marriage, divorce, rape, and family tragedy. And if that sounds like something out of Desperate Housewives, it just goes to show that the Bible has a message for women--today.
With probing questions, insightful sidebars, and meaningful life-application exercises, Live Relationally offers the vivid lessons and rich wisdom of Israel's founding mothers. From the complicated Tamar to the often oversimplified Eve, they are wives and mothers, slaves and owners, sinners and saints ... and each woman's story will touch hearts for God.
Live Deeply is for anyone who has ever read one of Jesus' parables and asked, "What is He talking about?" Now women--alone or with a small group--can dig deeper into the meaning of these parables to uncover their important meaning for their walks with Christ. Designed with today's busy woman in mind, each lesson can be completed in as little as 20 minutes per day, but will leave her with a lifetime of valuable insights.
Based on the inductive Bible study method, each lesson conjures vivid imagery of the sights and sounds of Ancient Israel alongside poignant application questions for today. The Fresh Life Bible study series offers something for Christian women of all shapes and sizes; everyone will leave with a more profound understanding of the important women of Genesis and Christ's amazing parables.
