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.
I have been conducting a book by book study of the Bible with a friend of mine using this series. We started with Genesis and just completed this study on Ruth and Esther. I highly recommend this series to anyone who is looking to gain a comprehensive view of each book. What I really like about this series is how it breaks down each Bible book by sections, provides an overview, and connects the rest of the Bible including how each part points to Jesus (they call them Gospel Glimpses). This is great for groups or individual study as well. Plus, I don't think the studies are "too heavy" so that only Bible scholars can understand them. It makes you think, and question while helping to point you towards the answers.
In particular, this study of Ruth and Esther was the first one that included 2 books. I wasn't sure how it would go since there's are 2 different stories from different times, but they tied them together well. Plus for such short books, it made sense to combine them.
We bought this book for my wife and I to use as a study guide while reading through the Old Testament books of Ruth and Esther. It's absolutely top-notch. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the many-layered meanings of these seemingly simple Biblical stories and their applications to the lives of believers living in any generation. The way the sovereign will of God over great rulers and huge empires is brought to bear on the tiny village of Bethlehem and the humble lives of ordinary people is breath-taking.
Great study for our group of women ages 10 and up. The questions are not too difficult but enough to make your brain work and cause you to have to do some digging to learn and grow. I love the way these books tie all books together with Christ.
