A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit: 5 Habits from the Book of Ruth
by Nikki Koziarz
Every woman will eventually face the temptation to give in and give up. But something transformative happens when she perseveres in the face of difficulty and pain. A woman who refuses to quit influences her world in ways she could never have imagined. In six sessions, this study focuses on the Moabite woman’s five practical habits that kept her eyes on God: Ruth accepted the assignment of refinement, followed through on her commitments despite her feelings, remained open to the movement of God, gave others what she needed, and moved forward in faith.
I’d definitely recommend this study if you’re looking for something that encourages and challenges you. I am not using the videos, but I still can complete the book without them. -Angela
Recovering Redemption: How Christ Changes Everything
by Matt Chandler
All of us can have a sense of dissatisfaction. Typically, we look for solutions in four places—self, others, the world, and religion. But none of these can satisfy. The gospel is the remedy for everything in our lives, including our struggles, difficult circumstances, and broken relationships. Recovering Redemption is about recovering what is lost and broken— our relationship with Jesus. Those who have been Christ followers for years will find that these 12 sessions will help connect the dots of their faith, serving as a bridge between salvation and maturity. This is also an essential study for new believers. Through this series, you can get traction in areas where you feel frustrated or stagnant in your relationship with the Lord as well as enhance your relationship with Him and others.
We watched the DVD together and discussed it. During the week I went through the three devotionals, which really helped me internalize the things that we learned and discussed in our group. This is an amazing study—very foundational and formational! -Samantha
Ruth: Relationships that Bring Life
by Ruth Haley Barton
Bring hope, faith, and love to your relationships! The biblical character of Ruth was striking in her ability to do just that. Even in the midst of tragedy and difficulty, her presence blessed and influenced friends and strangers in her community, the man she grew to love, her children, and her in-laws. This six-week Fisherman Bible Study Guide uses Ruth’s story to help you reflect on your relationships, inviting you to move in ways that will lead you into life-giving patterns of relating.
It’s impossible not to apply God’s Word to your everyday life after doing this study, which is easy to use and to lead. I learned so much from this study on Ruth even though I have previously studied the book and heard numerous sermons on it. -Summer
