Paul’s Letters to the Early Church (Christian Living Bible Study Series)

Title:  Paul’s Letters to the Early Church (Christian Living Bible Study Series)
Author:  Trina Bresser Matous
Pages:  326
Year:  2014
Publisher:  Lighthouse of the Carolinas Publishing
My rating is 5 stars.
One of the best aspects of the study is it doesn’t center on any particular version, but just plainly being in the Bible!  I approach a study by reading the whole book or letter before going chapter by chapter with the author.  The format is such that the author gives information introducing the various letters Paul wrote that help participants understand before studying the particular book and chapter.  Then, the author takes the student chapter by chapter with relevant information and helps bring it to a point where it can then be applied to the individual student’s life.
There are a couple of questions after each chapter is studied that can be used in a group setting or for an individual.  I think the author creates a great foundation to start a study of each of Paul’s writings, but it is springboard for further study.  The study is a great book to spend time in along with meditation in His Word and what he speaks to each person’s heart.
The author has a study for The Epistles of James, Peter and Jude which I hope to review very soon.  All I can say is these are studies that students and followers of Jesus will not want to do without!  Grab a copy and consider asking some family or friends maybe even neighbors to come and discuss various aspects of these letters in the Bible!
