Do you know how the books of the Bible were chosen? . The remaining Old Testament books were adopted as canonical even later. The Old Testament list was probably not finally fixed much before the birth of Christ.

Do you know how the books of the Bible were chosen? Learn more about the 66 books of the Bible, known as the 'canon. The Jewish people were widely scattered by this time and they really needed to know which books were the authoritative Word of God because so many other writings claiming divine authority were floating around. With the fixing of the canon they became a people of one Book, and this Book kept them together. Nor is there a single date when we can say that the canon of the New Testament was decided. You'll be surprised at how relevant their stories are for you and your Bible study group and how challenging their examples can be. Practical, refreshing, a little different.

The simplest way to understand every book of the Bible: this guide sums up the Old and New Testaments in one sentence per book. That’s because the Bible is a collection of writings from different authors writing at different times. Great for adults and kids. In some ways, that makes it easier to approach the Bible: we can read it in chunks rather than needing to read the whole Bible at once. But it also makes it a bit confusing. The Bible itself is a book. In fact, the word bible comes from the Latin and Greek words for book (biblia and biblos, respectively). But it’s a book of books.

Bestselling, updated, and expanded devotional study, Women of the Bible, by Ann Spangler and Jean E. Syswerda, focuses on fifty-two remarkable women in Scripture-women whose struggles to live with faith and courage are not unlike your own. Special features in Women of the Bible. Special features in Women of the Bible include:, A list of all the women of the Bible, Timeline of the women of the Bible, A list of women in Jesus’ family tree, A list of women in Jesus’ life and ministry Vital and deeply human, the women in this book encourage you through their failures as well as their successes.

The stories of women in the Bible can provide startling lessons for women today. Read about Mary, Jezebel, Rahab, Hannah, Ruth, and others, and see for yourself. As you trace their steps through the Bible, God will reveal through their lives His answers for your own. You'll be surprised at how relevant their stories are for you and your Bible study group and how challenging their examples can be. Practical, refreshing, a little different.

Ethel Herr's "Chosen Women of the Bible" is an excellent, concise study of 13 women of the Old and New Testaments.The book is well-written and is truly a BIBLE STUDY, with thought-provoking questions concerning the Scriptures and application to the lives of present-day women. I recommend this book for individual or group study.

As a member of my church congregation I am occasionally asked to read and give an opinion on various books that may be used for study groups. Such was my position re CHOSEN WOMEN OF THE BIBLE, a ninety-six page text designed for use by Christian women's study groups.

CHOSEN WOMEN is extremely well organized. The book is broken into thirteen lessons, each lesson focusing on one or more famous women of the Bible: Eve; Mary; Jezebel; Rahab; Ruth; Mary Magdalene; The Daughters of Zion; Hannah; Jochebed; Deborah; The Samaritan Woman; Dorcas, Lydia, and Priscilla; and Mary of Bethany. Each lesson opens with an introduction to the character that is followed by recommendations for scriptural readings, various observations, and points to ponder. Each lesson closes with a final point, a story or poem that illustrates the author's point of view, and suggestions for further reading.

As an author, however, Herr leaves something to be desired. Her "introductions" are essentially fictionalized portraits of the various women that read rather like popular romance novels; her closing points, stories, and poems range from the obvious to the saccharine. Most particularly, however, Herr takes the point of view that a woman's place should be in subservence to a man.

At times this attitude is highly obvious, as in the lessons on Eve and Jezebel, the latter of which is offered as an example of a woman whose domination of her husband leads to some very unsavory results. More often, however, it is implicit in the way that Herr presents the lessons in a general sense, with lessons concerning Ruth and Mary Magdalene cases in point. I took issue this overall tone, as well as with several other ideas Herr broaches, with the status of Rahab a good example; although Herr notes that some scholars do not believe that Rahab was a "harlot" in the present sense of the word, she offers nothing in the way of in-text documentation on the issue.

CHOSEN WOMEN does not specifically align itself with any one Christian denomination, but in the final analysis it reads very much like an extended Southern Baptist tract softened via the language of a purple-prose bestseller. As such, I find it hard to believe that it will appeal greatly to either fundamentalists, who will object to the author's habit of fictionalization, or liberal demonimations, who will disagree with the author's stance on gender roles. I cannot imagine to whom it is supposed to appeal.

Yep, I'll have to agree with the former reviewer. While some of the chapter introductions were interesting, they were obviously conjecture, written in the style of fiction. I'm confused. What place does that have in a Bible study book?
