Discover Together Ephesians: A Blog Tour and Bible Study Review

About The Book:

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 orvisit 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.

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 any time of day to comment or ask questions. Sue will be there frequently to respond, encourage, and equip!

My Review:

I recently had the opportunity to review Sue Edwards' Discover Together Revelation, and was definitely on board when approached to review her Discovery Together Ephesians!

Ephesians is one of my favorite books of The Bible, and so any chance I get to dig deep through it, I take. And with Edwards' study, I am so glad I did. It follows a similar format as the Revelation study does. This makes it easy to jump right in, since I was already familiar with the format. Each day you are drawn into Paul's world and learn what it truly is to be "in Christ". These two words have been something I have been studying a lot in recent months. This particular study has been a wonderful compliment as I have read Mark Driscoll's recent release, Who Do You Think You Are and listened to the accompanying sermon series online. It's been great to learn similar things but also new things from both a male and female perspective. 

My favorite lesson thus far has been session six: Tripping over Your Tongue - Talk Your Walk. It was convicting, encouraging and has been a wonderful reminder of the power of words and our mouths! I have absolutely LOVED the QR Codes that are included within each lesson, allowing for additional study resources with Sue Edwards. She is a gifted teacher of God's Word and I look forward to studying more of God's word through her other studies (Psalms, Proverbs, Luke and 1 Peter, as well as Revelation).

If you are looking for a great study on the book of Ephesians for you to study personally, with your spouse, friends or in a small group setting, then this would be a fantastic one to use!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
