Title: Her Restless Heart Women’s Bible Study
Author: Barbara Cameron
Publisher: Abingdon Press
So because this is a bible study I’m not going to do a long description. It’s a bible study using the book Her Restless Heart as the backdrop to delve into the Geary’s longing for love and acceptance. It uses fiction to allow you to see yourself in new ways.
So when I requested this book I though it was the fiction book not the accompanying bible study. So when I received it I was a bit disappointed but that was until I started to read it. However, once I dug into this study I was actually really glad that I didn’t know before I received it. This helped me a lot to identify some of my issues and how I can give them to God.
The fact that this study uses fiction as a backdrop makes this one unique and, in my opinion, effective. The fiction made it easier for me to identify and address some issues I might have. I think this idea is genius and others should consider doing this too. I think it makes the study a but more fun and interesting.
Though I think this study is targeted for middle-aged women I think older or younger women can enjoy this study. I know it helped me identify things that I do that aren’t exactly the best and helped me identify what my personality is like. It also helped me realize some things about God that I already knew but sometimes have a hard time fully believing or some things that I feel I need to do before I go to God. I know this study helped me a lot.
I think of all the study to do this one was perfect for me because of all the things I think about and hope for the most is to be loved and accepted. It’s a hope for the future and a knowledge of now. It’s what I think I want and need most of all. So for me this was the best study for me because it helped me see that I deserve to be loved and accepted but I need to rest in the knowledge that God loves and made me who I am.
I’ve never read anything by this author but if the snippets of parts of the book say anything about her writing skill, she’s amazing. I got hooked on her story and I only read parts of chapters! She also is amazing at hitting straight to the point and showing you how to fix it. I loved this bible study and actually want to read more from her, fiction or nonfiction. This study comes highly recommended.
Overall, I loved this bible study and I recommend it to anyone of an age that can understand and appreciate this bible study. I give this book a five out of five.
