ARC Arrivals: Live Deeply and Live Relationally

Live Deeply: A Study in the Parables of Jesus by Lenya Heitzig & Penny Rose
Live Relationally: Lessons from the Women of Genesis by Lenya Heitzig & Penny Rose

Publisher: David C. Cook

I received these books for a First Wild Card Tour on June 26th.

About Live Deeply: Twenty minutes a day to a better understanding of Jesus' parables. Have you ever read one of Jesus' parables and asked, "What is He talking about?" If so, you're not alone. Jesus' own disciples were also perplexed by the enigmatic stories Christ told.

Now you - alone or with your small group - can dig deeper into the meaning of these parables in lessons that conjure vivid imagery of the sights and sounds of ancient Israel. You will begin to uncover the parables' important meanings for your walk with Christ.

Gain a lifetime of valuable insights in this Fresh Life Bible study by authors Lenya Heitzig and Penny Rose. Each day's lesson is structured in five parts:
  1. Lift up (prayer)
  2. Look at (God's Word)
  3. Learn about (new insights)
  4. Live out (application)
  5. Listen to (quotes from other believers)
The Fresh Life series was created by women, for women - women who crave a profound experience of God's Word without an overwhelming commitment of time. With each lesson, you will come to a deeper understanding of the truths of the Bible and develop a deeper intimacy with God.

About Live Relationally: Twenty minutes a day to a fresh look at the women of Genesis. Quick - name your favorite Bible character! Is it a woman? Chances are it's not, even though 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 last night's prime-time TV, it just goes to show that the Bible has a message for you - today.

From the complicated Tamar to the often oversimplified Eve, Genesis is full of wives and mothers, slaves and owners, sinners and saints. . . and each woman's story will touch your heart.
