First off - these books are beautiful! Bright and eye catching, they draw you right in and make you want to start reading. They are each a 10 week Bible Study, set up in 10 chapters with 5 days in each chapter and each day should take about 20 minutes. There are 5 parts to each day -
1) Lift up (prayers)
2) Look at (Scripture)
3) Learn about (the text)
4) Live out (personal application)
5) Listen to (wisdom)
Live Deeply is a Study in the Parables of Jesus and there are 2 more Live Fearlessly - a Study in the Book of Joshua and Live Intimately - Lessons from the Upper Room.
If you are looking for a good Bible study - personally or for a small group - this series is definitely one you should check out!

Live Deeply by Lenya Heitzig & Penny Rose is an in-depth 10 week study of the parables of Jesus. Each week is broken up into five daily readings that include lots of Scripture and personal introspection. I've really loved digging deeply into each of Jesus' parables. The authors include history to give background information on the story to bring greater understanding. The questions encourage the reader to really think about what it is he/she is reading. I've read and heard these parables countless times, but reading and rereading them, then breaking them down bit by bit has given me a great deal more understanding about just what Jesus was trying to say. There's a lot of wonderful wisdom here for any reader willing to dig deep. This book has become an enjoyable part of my time with God each night, and I fully intend to read the rest of the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am very impressed with these bible studies. They are not the fill-in-the-blank kind but rather real thinkers. The lessons are laid out clearly and succinctly. The ladies have great insight into today's woman and have shown a deep knowledge of the people in the bible to bring their lessons into today's world. They have what they call the 5 elements per lesson, I call them the 5 L's. 1. Lift up: a short prayer that brings the learner front and center into God's world. 2. Look at: the Scripture for the day using questions that ask us to dig deeper into it's meaning. 3. Learn about: sidebars that explain the times or the culture. 4. Live out: how we can apply the scripture and what we've learnt to our own personal lives. 5. Listen to: quotes from others to help put in some perspective. The questions for each lesson use such words as explain, describe in detail, compare and contrast, what do you think. All words and phrases that are designed to make the student think and then put their thoughts into words. In the Live Out section references are made to other books in the Bible which helps to reinforce and expand the lesson. Then it goes on forward to today and brings the principle home to your own life. These studies definitely make one think down deep and bring a whole new aspect to studying the Bible. I highly recommend the series for beginners and advanced learners, individuals and small groups.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
