    A Study In Philippians--Good For Both Genders

    Karol Ladd in her new book, "A Woman's Passionate Pursuit Of God" published by Harvest House gives us an in-depth study of Philippians to help us create a positive and purposeful life..

    Ever study Paul's letter to the Philippians? I mean really study it? Most of us have not. Sure we have read it a few times can quote verses from it but do we really understand what Paul is writing about and why he wrote it in the first place? I hate to admit it but I could not answer yes to all those questions and they are my questions? Can you imagine that? Really sad.

    Karol Ladd has done us a favor and has done the work for us. Yes, the title of the book is directed to women but I assure you that men can read this book as well and benefit from it just as much. Paul was not writing to a specific gender so we can get in on this. Ms. Ladd starts the book off with how Paul came to the city of Philippi, the individuals he met, good and bad and the events he and Silas had to endure while they were there. This way Chapter One sets the stage for her analysis of the letter which was written ten years later.

    Chapter by chapter Ms. Ladd shows us what Paul was expressing to the Church at Philippi: Diamonds Formed Through Difficulties, Living Your Life With Passion And Purpose, Getting Rid Of Garbage To Gain What Is Priceless, Change Your Thinking And Change Your Life and more. Karol Ladd is a terrific teacher and she really has an understanding of what she is writing about.

    In my opinion everyone needs this book. I know I sure did and do. I will read this book again and again because I need to be reminded of God's great love often and this book will do it every time. I recommend it highly. I have to say that Ms. Ladd is an excellent Bible teacher and I am going to go out and acquire all of her previous books and be ready for all her new ones simply because she is that good.

    Great for individual or group study

    This is a study of Philippians. This book, with 12 chapters, goes through passages in Philippians with encouragement for readers to personally apply the principles Paul has written about. Each chapter ends with a "Personal Pursuit" which is a little review of the chapter as well as an activity to do in your life. A discussion guide is also included at the end of the book. This book is appropriate for individual or group study.

    One of the themes I got from this book was the idea of living a life of contentment. We can learn so much from Paul's example. It is full of things that made me just stop and think for a minute. One thing the author said that I really liked was this: "There are a variety of situations in life where we may struggle to have a content spirit. In these particular times, we have a choice to try to make it through on our own or turn our eyes toward the Lord and seek His strength in the midst of our uncertainty or unwanted circumstances."

    I have never read anything by this author, and I really enjoyed reading this book and the author's style. She included stories to illustrate her points in each chapter, which was effective for getting the point across. This is a very encouraging, practical book.

    Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for providing this book for my review.
