Review: Live Reflectively: Lessons from the Watershed Moments of Moses by Lenya Heitzig
Review: This is the third Lenya Heitzig Bible Study I have participated in. In comparison to others, these studies tend to be better than most. However, like most Bible Studies written for women, it lacks depth and promotes a Jesus-is-my-therapist approach to the Christian Life. She quotes great Christian authors like Mathew Henry and Martin Luther, but the hard truth those authors often spoke of does appear in the general prose or questions. Chapters begin with trivial anecdotes that pull things from the text that are a stretch. The questions do not dig deep and often focus on self and what Jesus can do for us. There is little talk about repentance, sin, or sacrifice.
The study of scripture is important and the fellowship that comes from doing it together is vital. I encourage every Christian women to be involved in a Bible Study. And Heitzig’s studies are not bad. But there is more out there, more depth, more soul-searching, harder truths to be found.
