Thought Provoking Bible Study

The Power of Knowing God by Kay Arthur (40-min Bible Study) Review

True to Kay Arthur’s study material, she probes the reader to dig deep into their soul to get closer to God. She’s an excellent teacher and the material is well organized and thought out as your journey to strengthen a relationship with Him progresses.

However, if I do find Kay’s method of scribbling symbols in your bible a bit over the top. Once you’re finished with her suggested ‘highlights’, your bible is a bit hard to read and not much can be done if you review the same scripture for another topic later because you’ve already marked stuff for that particular study.

I do recommend that if you are going to be as extensive in note taking as she suggests that you create your own journal on the topic at hand and write out the scriptures mentioned for that one study. At least then you’d have topical journals all kept in one place to review for later use without having to search for stuff you ‘knew’ was in there but just can’t seem to find when you need it. Leave the bible writing for simplistic highlighting and more general note taking so you can actually read the words later.

Otherwise, great study, loaded with useful information from cover to cover and plenty of room for small group discussion or intimate private time with God reflecting. Kay never fails to bring key scriptures to the table and she’s true to form in this study as well. Enjoy!

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.

About Me

Anthem, Arizona, United States
I'm a caregiver to my husband who is permanently disabled. Life can be a bit challenging when it's not really about me at all. I've got two boys, 18 and 3 and they're both an added handful. I spend my spare time trying to keep from being bored and try to make it about me, life and socializing with others about how they spend their time. Hence, the birth of this blog!
