The Power of Knowing God review

This book is part of a series from Kay Arthur, founder of PRECEPT Ministries and inductive Bible study methodology. The study is topical, involving six lessons covering 5-8 sections of Scripture. Kay Arthur is well-known for her method of Bible study that incorporates marking, drawing, rectangles and lines, “squiggles”, colors and highlights. These lessons are an attempt to compact what would take a week of work and preparation into a 40 minute session that does not require preparation work. Although advertised as 40 minutes, it is a lot of information to cover and an individual or group may need more of an hour to do the lesson. They also may want to take more time to discuss the questions and applications as well. One drawback may be that a person does not want to mark up his personal Bible. Despite these concerns, the lessons are well-designed for individual or small group studies. There are good leadership points and interpreting/application questions.
This book was provided to me at no cost for the purpose of review by Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review.
