Book Review ~ Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin ~ 12/11/2023

Series:  N/A
Pages:  163
Date Published: July 31, 2014

Many Christian women find great encouragement and joy in and through women's Bible studies. However, popular Bible teacher Jen Wilkin is concerned that sometimes we let our emotions rule our study of Scripture and forget that the Bible is primarily about God, not us. Challenging hungry women to go deeper in their study of Scripture, this book will help you refocus your efforts on feeding your mind first and foremost. Whether you're young or old, married or single, this accessible volume will energize and equip you for Bible study aimed at transforming both the heart and mind.

My Thoughts:

Wow, it has been FOREVER since I finished reading a book or written a book review!  January 2023 as a matter of fact.

I purchased this book off Amazon after watching Jen Wilkin on "How to Faith a Life"'s podcast.  (I'll share it below.)  I was thoroughly impressed with Jen's knowledge and passion for women to really study the Word of God.

I enjoyed reading this book as I am attempting to read my Bible through in a year in 2024.  I've read the Bible through many times but this time I want to really study and apply what I'm reading.

Jen does a great job of teaching the Five P's of studying.

1.  Study with Purpose
2.  Study with Perspective
3.  Study with Patience
4.  Study with Process
5.  Study with Prayer

She then pulls it all together with an example study of the book of James.

I had set myself a goal of reading one chapter a day but found that I always wanted more at the end of one chapter.  When I found that I wanted to keep reading, I was so excited!  I ended up finishing the book within a few days.

I definitely recommend "Women of the Word" and look forward to reading more books by Jen Wilkin in the future.

As promised above, here is Faith's podcast with Jen:

Onto the next book :)
