Sue Edwards has more than thirty years of experience into the classroom as a Bible teacher, curriculum writer, and overseer of several megachurch women’s ministries. She serves as minister to women at Irving Bible Church and director of women’s ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas.
Her newest book in the Discover Together Series is an inductive study of Revelation. It is a nine lesson study covering the first three chapters and last two chapters of Revelation. Although not a comprehensive study of the book, Edwards offers great insight into the seven churches and our future in God’s kingdom.
If you are looking for an in-depth study of Revelation, you won’t find it in this book; however, if you are looking for something basic to guide you into a knowledge of God’s message to the seven churches and how you can apply them to your life. Edwards doesn’t give you the answers, but she helps you discover them for yourself—a valuable tool in further Bible study.
I particularly enjoyed the digging deeper exercises which take you to other scriptures to further help you apply what you learn to your life. Revelation, as Edwards’ points out, is often used as a source for end times study; however, it contains so much information about how we should prepare for eternity in our heavenly home not just for the end of our earthly home.
Edwards’ intentions are for this book to be used primarily in a small group as her passion is to bring women together through a study of God’s Word and let them learn together. It works well as an individual study; however, you will miss out on some great discussion opportunities.
