My favorite part was the last chapter where Priscilla shared 7 very practical ways to apply and put into motion all that she taught. While geared for women, I think most anyone could enjoy this in-depth look into the lessons we can learn from the Israelite's wilderness journey.

To read more of my review: Feb 25, Jennifer rated it really liked it. We just finished this one at WOW. It was a 6-week study. I learned a lot from this study about wandering in the wilderness, that God sometimes leads us into the wilderness to teach us obedience, to test our faith, to show us miracles.
We have to obey God completely and immediately, we should expect miracles, we should have courage to step into the raging waters, we should do exactly what God tells us to do. We are His people.

Awesome book and Priscilla Shirer is wonderful. This book came to me at a very tough time in my life and I truly believe The Lord put it into my hands to read now. The Israelites wandered in the desert and faced trials and tribulations, much as I find myself doing now.

Looking for my "one in a million" friend that will pursue truth with me! Jul 10, Chrissy rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I usually avoid most of the Bible studies geared and marketed towards women as I find them to be more focused on stories or feelings and not enough on studying actual scripture. I did this study with a friend over the summer but didn't really have high expectations. Boy, was I wrong. This study constantly directs you to scripture, focusing you on it, having you to open your Bible to look it up, compare it, answer questions about and really thinking about what it means to you.
It's not as in depth as the study I do on my own but I feel this was miles above most of the other studies out there. It was a good balance between life application and scripture study, not quite to the level of a Kay Arthur study as far as the study part goes but still really good. I really got a lot out of doing this study, to the point we are starting our new Bible study group with another Priscilla Shirer study "Discerning the Voice of God.
This is not the workbook -which you can't seem to find on Amazon unless you purchase the leader kit -so if you were looking for that, this is not it. However, this is closer to the dvd dialogue. Love this lesson by Shire, it's very thought provoking. This is one of my absolute favorite books. Priscilla Shirer certainly has a heart for God.

Priscilla knocks another one out of the park with this book. Full of truth, scripture, and practical in-your-face love, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this book with a group of women in our church over the summer.

Which is basically everyone. Try to read the account of the Israel going into the promised land from the WORD at the same time you read this book. It will add clarity and details. Best to read at a slower pace, not a race to the finish. The last chapter is the best, of course!
