To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a group we liked the parts of James that were covered, unfortunately the questions were worded horribly, they were redundant and not extremely thought provoking. We as a group spent more time discussing what was wrong with the questions and what was meant than anything that would help us grow in our knowledge and walk.
I was hoping for a great study since J.I. Packer's name is on this as the Theological Editor. There is no problem with it theologically, but in my opinion, the questions are not very well thought out. Some questions were so simple that they need not be included. Others were off on a tangent and not in line with the lesson. There were several places that questions were repeated but worded differently which was somewhat frustrating. I would love to give this 5 stars to match my original enthusiasm, but unfortunately I cannot.
I had done a book study on James in the past and got a lot out of it. This book doesn't seem as practical, which is what I like about James. It is more theological and seems to repeat the same info/questions. It wasn't what I was hoping for.
Sometimes when I'm using it I think I could do better with a knife. Fresh herbs have oil and the oil makes the pieces clump in the tines. It is easy to clean out and I will continue to use it. Better than using a chopper!
