Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin
This book is a great resource to help women study and interpret the Bible well. It will equip you to teach the Bible to women in your church. This book reminds me so much of some of the Bible study workshops I attended at the Gospel Coalition 2014 National Women’s Conference. The emphasis of these workshops and this book is to read and interpret each passage of the Bible as a part of the whole. In other words, it will help you to see the big picture, the overarching story from creation to redemption in every passage.
Jen Wilkin lays out the five “P’s” for studying the word of God: Purpose, Perspective, Patience, Process and Prayer. She challenges us to be disciplined as we read and study God’s word for ourselves and then to study the word together in the same manner with other women.
I love to study the Word of God. I am always looking for good material to help me study and know God’s Word better. I enjoyed this book so much I ended up reading it in one day. Of course I am now going back to re-read and process more slowly.
