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.
You know most study books are light on theology, and high on "application," wrongheadedly thinking that less depth is what's going to make things more accessible to bible study groups. In reality, proper theology allows you to understand well known passages with fresh eyes, and a good leader can use these new insights to encourage new applications beyond the usual superficial ones. It's especially strong on the meta-narrative of the bible, meaning that it allows you to see how Matthew is a continuation of the story of redemption that started in the OT. As a leader, nothing beats studying the scripture on your own, but this acts as a great framework for those leaders who already are putting in the work, but need a framework to guide his own studies to make sure he is not going too far astray.
Ok bible study. Until I got to Week 4 and the author told me that all of my anxiety is a faith issue. Unfortunately this outdated concept and the author’s inability to understand mental health as a physical issue and not just a spiritual issue, means this book is worthless. I hope no one who struggles with anxiety believes that the root cause is their lack of faith. It’s not the truth.
