Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds

Jen Wilkin. Crossway, $12.99 trade paper (160p) ISBN 978-1-4335-4176-6
Wilkin, a speaker and women’s Bible study teacher, challenges women to move away from viewing the Bible as a way to see themselves and instead to see scripture as a way to see God. She shares from her own early mistakes in Bible study, but also with the eye of a longtime teacher observing her students. She argues that many women sign up for a spiritual “roller-coaster ride,” letting their hearts guide their study of the Bible, rather than seeking to understand scripture through diligent and informed study. She encourages women to understand the connection of each part of scripture back to the larger story of what God is doing, keeping in mind how the original audience would have heard the message. Wilkin’s challenges to the status quo, grounded in years of observation, ring with gentle wisdom and guide readers in how to study the Bible with greater depth. (Aug.)
