But God – Bible Study Review

I love having a community of women where I can bounce ideas off of them and have them do the same to me.  Brenda Ruse has been a huge encouragement to me in my endeavor to find good material for devotionals.  Last week I shared a book that I was privileged to read and glean from.  This week I am able to share a Bible study that Brenda herself read and wrote up for me to share with you all.  I would love to get my hands on it as she has spoken quite highly of it.

BUT GOD – Question Mark or Exclamation Point?

But God - Bible Study Review    #QuietWorkings

Author: Lorraine Strohbehn and Brenda Strohbehn

Versions of Bible used: KJV in this study; daughter, Brenda may use other versions in her blog, but you don’t need to use those or read them for this study

What I liked or learned:

This study was phenomenal in studying passages of Scripture containing the phrase, “But God.” At the end of each chapter, there’s a section of application called, “Petals from the Basket,” name taken from Brenda’s blog – explanation in the Preface The chapters could each be divided up over several days – so much is packed into each one. 2 chapter study on Joseph – Genesis 50:20 Contentment – Psalm 73:26 Pleasing God, not men – I Thess. 2:4 2 chapters: We were to We are – Galatianas 6:14 Thankful Heart – Romans 6:17 Moses – Net, fire, flood – Psalm 66:10-12 Trials and Temptations – Death of a Dream – I Corinthians 10:13

What I didn’t like or areas where author was weak:

I found the size of the book a bit cumbersome – hard to hold in your lap but perfect to use on a table – would like to see them reduce the size from 8.5 x 11 to a thicker book of maybe 6×9

Level of spiritual maturity needed for this study: mature believer, yet within a class or Bible study setting a new believer could glean much from this – need to also know how to look up references in Scripture; illustrations are easy for most to grasp

Background of author: wife and daughter of Dr. Ben Strohbehn – very fundamental in preaching and testimony

Another great Bible study for Christian women – one to help us learn about our Bible and about the great God we serve.
