My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Book Description: Ganel-Lyn Condie and Scott Sorensen are known for their unique approach to gospel study, combining deep conversation about Come, Follow Me material with real-life application. Now you’re invited to take your own deep dive into the Old Testament with this engaging guided journal designed to be used in tandem with any other scripture resources and the weekly Come, Follow Me lessons.
Brimming with quotes, scriptures, and insights into weekly gospel topics, this valuable resource allows you to chronicle your personal experiences learning about the people, events, and doctrines of the Old Testament. By investing a few minutes of each day to jot down your thoughts, you will forge a lasting connection to the words of the ancient prophets without feeling overwhelmed by the effort.
My thoughts: I hate to admit it, but I am not good at personal scripture study. I tend to rush through it and call it good without pondering the principles and stories that I have read.
For someone like me, this is a great tool. This is a scripture journal. The authors help me to take a closer look and figure out how the scriptures take a role in my life. At 5% into the book, the question is asked "What role does tolerance play in letting God prevail in how you interact with others?" Wow! What a powerful concept to ponder in the world we live in today.
This is a fantastic resource to add to your personal study of "Come Follow Me". I plan on using it throughout the year as I try to increase my spirituality.
