Live Abundantly: A Bible Study Review
Twenty minutes a day to discover the abundance of God's riches
In Live Abundantly, Bible teachers Lenya Heitzig and Penny Pierce Rose challenge you to dig deep into the book of Ephesians to find the spiritual treasure God has for you. Covering topics such as living in God's will and receiving peace no matter the circumstances, the book of Ephesians reveals the magnitude of every Christian's inheritance, a gift "exceedingly abundantly above" what you could ever ask for.
Unearth the greatest treasure of life in this rich study. Each day's lesson is structured in five parts: Lift up (prayer), Look at (God's Word), Learn about (new insights), Live out (application), Listen to (quotes from other believers).
The Fresh Life series was created by women, for women-women who crave a profound experience of God's Word without an overwhelming commitment of time. With each lesson, you will come to a deeper understanding of the truths of the Bible and develop a deeper intimacy with God.

Ephesians is one of my favorite books of the Bible. Over the years I have read this book a handful of times, and yet each time I gleam a new teaching from it to apply to my life. It is one of the books of the Bible that impacts people at all the different life stages that they find themselves: as a child, parent, spouse, or single. Amazing truths are found in Ephesians, and I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Live Abundantly: A Study in the book of Ephesians.
This Bible study is set up in a very user-friendly manner, with each lesson being split up into five sections: Lift Up, Look At, Learn About, Live Out and Listen To. With five days to study each of the 12 lessons, you will be immersed in Ephesians and find many new lessons to apply to your life. Live Abundantly can be used for both individual and group study, and my favorite feature is the abundance of reflection/discussion questions that are included each day.
Live Abundantly is part of the Fresh Life Bible Study Series from David C. Cook and would be a fantastic addition to all church Bible Study/Small Group Ministries.
I highly recommend this book and give them a huge thumbs up!
