"Revelation" by Sue Edwards


Women need Bible study to keep balanced, focused and Christ-centered in their busy worlds. However, many find it difficult to set aside the time and discipline needed for an in-depth study. The Discover Together studies offer tiered questions to allow readers to choose a depth of study that fits with their individual lifestyles or schedules, even if they vary by the week, month or season

This insightful Bible study uses the example of Paul's church in Ephesus to show readers how they can be victorious Christians, living in God's Word, and free from sin. Part of the discovery series, the Ephesians edition includes tips for either individual or group use, inspirational sidebars and short, 3-5 minute teaching videos. Scan the video QR code in the book with a smart phone or visit the series website to watch Sue provide historical and cultural background, teach important truths found in each week's lesson, or ask thoughtful questions to encourage deeper discussion.

A few weeks ago my daughter asked me about Bible prophecy.  She wanted to know what the Bible says about the end of the world.  I answered her questions the best that I could, but I didn't know all the details that she wanted - and I know that some of those answers are in the book of Revelation, that complicated, symbolic, scary book.

Then I was offered this book for review, and it definitely makes the study of Revelation easier - and smoother.  With questions of varying depth and online videos available, this is a great resource.  Revelation makes it possible to study this difficult book at my own pace, as deeply as I need to, while still interacting with a teacher.  

I'm happy to use this study now to grow my own knowledge of end times prophecy, and I look forward to working my way through it again sometime in the future when my daughter is ready to study together.  I'm really excited about this book - and there are more in this series!

Better yet, author Sue Edwards is going to be doing online Bible studies using these books this year.  What a great way to join a study if you can't physically meet with others!

Join the online Bible study here. Just LIKE the page and then follow along. There will be a launch party for Ephesians on April 11th and the online Bible study will begin the following week on April 15th.

Women crave Bible studies that challenge them to grow in their faith. But after balancing carpools, sports schedules, or work deadlines, you may not be able to commit to another evening out of the house. Now you don't have to.

Whether studying with a small group or by yourself, you know can join popular Bible teacher Sue Edwards on the Year of Discovery. Sue will be leading women through her studies with online chats and discussions on her Facebook page. All year long. Every week. Any time of day. From the comfort of home. Make-up and hair-do optional. Come as you are!
Each week you will find quotes, links to articles and other resources, and videos to help you as you study. Complete the lessons at your convenience. Then visit any time of day to comment or ask questions. Sue will be there frequently to respond, encourage, and equip!
