This was the first Kay Arthur study I've done and I have mixed feelings about it. I think the set up of the topic(s) and Scripture passages were very good and I didn't feel that the time it took to complete a lesson was too much. However, I felt that many of the questions were elementary and repetetive and the drawing, underlining, diagramming seemed too much like busy-work. I think that has more to do with my biblical education and learning styles more than anything though. I'm sure that many find that kind of "engagement" with Scripture helpful and stimulating. The discussion questions and leadership cues would make this study easy to facilitate. This book was provided to me at no cost for the purpose of review by Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing.

This book is part of a series from Kay Arthur, founder of PRECEPT Ministries and inductive Bible study methodology. The study is topical, involving six lessons covering 5-8 sections of Scripture. Kay Arthur is well-known for her method of Bible study that incorporates marking, drawing, rectangles and lines, “squiggles”, colors and highlights. These lessons are an attempt to compact what would take a week of work and preparation into a 40 minute session that does not require preparation work. Although advertised as 40 minutes, it is a lot of information to cover and an individual or group may need more of an hour to do the lesson. They also may want to take more time to discuss the questions and applications as well. One drawback may be that a person does not want to mark up his personal Bible. Despite these concerns, the lessons are well-designed for individual or small group studies. There are good leadership points and interpreting/application questions.
