I am doing a review on two books here, and I did this because they are the first two in a series of Bible studies, the Fresh Life Bible studies.
Each book has a beginning section that tells you how to use these books, for private study and for group study, along with a checklist for the group study leader. The books also have 10 Lessons with each Lesson broke into 5 days study. The title suggests that 20 minutes a day will be ample time to study each lesson, each lesson is broke into 5 parts, Lift up (prayer), Look at (God's word) Learn about (new insights) Live out (application) Listen to (quotes from other believers. The design of these books make them very easy to use and in my opinion very desirable to use. Bring along your Bible, a journal to write in, and you writing tools and sit down and prepare for some time in the Word of God.
Live Deeply is a study of the Parables of Jesus, just a few chapter titles are as follows, Root Determines Fruit (the Parable of the Sower) Looks can be Deceiving(the Parable of the Kingdom of Heaven) Actions Speak Louder than Words (Parable of the Two Sons, and the Parable of the Landowner). As you delve into each chapter you will find in depth questions and study about each parable, questions to answer, and thoughts to journal about, and prayers to pray. Live Deeply is 273 pages $14.99 US
Live Relationally is a study of the Women of Genesis, a few title chapters are as follows Eve, Trouble in Paradise, Sarah, Stand by Your Man, Dinah, True Love Waits. Again, we find the chapters laid out similarly to the Live Deeply study, questions, prayers, journaling all included. Live Relationally is 287 pages $14.99 US
In the Fresh Life Series, there are also two other Studies, Live Intimately:Lessons from the Upper Room, and Live Fearlessly: A Study in the book of Joshua. Each of these books are published by David C. Cook and are available at www.davidccook.com.
