The Women in Jesus' Life by Mindy Ferguson (Book Review)

Title: The Women in Jesus' Life
Author: Mindy Ferguson
Publisher: CreateSpace




About the Book:  The Women in Jesus' Life is a six week study of the women Jesus encountered during His life and ministry.  Jesus felt the pain of those who grieved; spoke to the unacceptable; healed the sick; extended grace to the sinner; made the crippled whole. Through the lessons in this study, you'll experience the compassionate and merciful nature of our Savior.  It's encouraging material that emphasizes application and the lessons are manageable for today's busy women.

My thoughts:  This is a really good no pressure study.  It was interesting to me as it brought forth women that were in Jesus' life that might not associate with Him at first glance or maybe had forgotten about.  Mindy give small bites of the Bible to read accompanied with her insight and great questions.  The questions not only help you to see what was happening in Jesus' day, but also how it is applicable today.  If you are looking for a light study, with rich rewards - you should check this one out.

Thank you, Kristi. The Women in Jesus' Life was originally written for a busy group of working women. I am blessed by your description of it as a "no pressure" Bible study with "rich rewards".

This sounds rather neat. Our group's got it's next study planned, but we'll be looking for a new book in a while. Thanks for the recommendation.
