Philippians is the latest Bible study in the Discover Together Bible Study series from Sue Edwards.  This Bible study has eight lessons that should be taken at your own pace.  Each lessons contains questions to answer, Digging Deeper sections, and QR codes for videos on the internet.  You can also access the videos on the computer via the website,

About the Author-

My thoughts-

I participated in one of Sue Edwards Bible Studies, 1 Peter, several years ago.  I really enjoyed it, and I was excited to do this one.

I thought the questions were thought provoking.  The Digging Deeper sections were some of my favorite parts.  They always gave me more to think about. 

I like doing Bible studies that involve an entire book, because I am able to learn more than I would if I studied individual verses.  I like the extra verses that are also added in.  These studies also help me to think more about what I’ve read and I begin to explore other parts of the Bible to find out more.  I also talk about the topics I’ve been studying.  Bible studies are a great way to get people talking about God and the Bible.

I enjoyed watching the videos, but I wish the text was in the book.  I don’t have anything that can read the QR codes, and it can be a hassle to take the time to turn on the computer and make sure it is running when I get to the video section of the lesson.

I recommend this book and this series to women, because that is who it was written for, but I think men could learn a lot too.
