This book is now available! So I can finally tell you how much I love this book and thus highly recommend you read it. Overview of the book Each chapter takes a look at 10 different women. For example Eve, Leh, Rahab, Naomi and Tamar. Each woman has a different area of misunderstanding which Mary brings out beautifully. There are different parts to each chapter. The woman's story. Mary brings to life the highlighted women. Through her masterful storytelling, we can see, feel and understand the heart and thoughts of each woman in glorious heartfelt detail. Biblical Narrative & context Next, Mary share's the context of the woman's life in the bible. Where she's mentioned, significant historical events and meanings of why certain words are used. She shares excellent insight into the story's structure and the deeper meaning the original readers (who knew the culture of that time) would have
My latest book recommendation is a book we're currently going through as a church by Skye Jethani called "What if Jesus was serious?" How's the book structured? It's a nine-part, 72-day devotional book solely looking at Jesus' Sermon on the Mount teachings. You find the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5-7. Each day starts with "If Jesus was serious… Then…" For example: "If Jesus was serious… then we will love with our actions, not merely our feelings." Or, "If Jesus was serious… then knowing a leader's quality requires time and proximity." And, "If Jesus was serious… then prayer is far more powerful than we think." Above the title for the day is a poignant illustration bringing home the day's point. They are varied, some funny but all hit home the topic modernly what Jesus was clearly communicating. The devotional part is around 1 page in length. And ends
For anyone out there who hates to read actual books—you're missing out by not reading this one. Values Matter, By Darlene Cunningham. It is a book I've been waiting to read and review for 6 months now, mostly so I could go through it together with my BLP students. Why was Values Matter needed to be written? YWAM - Youth With A Mission isn't just a Christian missions organisation. It's a missions movement. Started by God sharing a vision to Loren of waves of young people going out across the whole world to share the gospel of Jesus to everyone. Back

Tim Mackie and Jon Collins, with their ever-growing fantastically creatively gifted team, continue to bless us with more excellent resources. Therefore I can now highly recommend The Bible Project’s new App.
At the start of this year, they launched The Bible Project App. And with it a modern way of reading the bible using the original structure. So my friend Debbie decided to gather a group of us to join her in using this new tool to be our way of reading / journeying through the entire bible this year. Which is an answer to prayer for me.
So how does the App work?
The Reading Journey
It’s based on how the bible was originally organised in literary blocks to be read aloud, just like a symphony has different movements within it. Thus Tim and Jon have named the literary blocks Movements.
