Barbara Frank put a lot of work into this bible study for your teen girls, and the result is a dynamic, engaging, and comprehensive look at 14 wonderful woman of the Old Testament. This is not a book you will just hand to your daughter and correct later, rather it requires your input too in the section called “discussion starters for mothers and daughters.” Each study introduces a key figure (Eve, Sarah, Rebekah, Rahab, Ruth, and Abigail are a few examples), bible passages are read, and then there are questions to answer about the assigned reading. There are several short essay questions that will allow your daughter to delve a little deeper and express her thoughts and opinions on the subject matter. The study concludes with the discussion time, which I can predict will be a fruitful and cherished time well spent between mother and daughter.
I really like the format of this bible curriculum, and think the chance to study some great female role models is good for your maturing teen girls. Barbara shares “the short essay questions also add to the journal feel of this book.” She adds, “I loved reading my daughter’s essay question answers when I recently re-read our original version of this book during the publishing process. She’s currently a college student, so it’s been five years since she wrote those answers. Reading them again revealed her spiritual growth over the past five years and also brought back wonderful memories of the young girl she used to be.”
I don’t have any daughters, but if I did I would have loved to do this study. I’m sure any young woman will grow in grace and knowledge as she works through these meaningful bible studies.
Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book for the review.
