I've been hoping for something better from evangelical Bible studies for women, and Nancy Guthrie's 10-week study of Hebrews almost delivers. With a confident, winsome voice, Guthrie conducts the reader through a verse-by-verse exposition of this epistle, combining biblical instruction with personal anecdotes and application in a very appealing way. Guthrie's emphasis on in-depth study is admirable, and her wisdom regarding the life of faith, wrought in the crucible of intense personal loss, is sound and godly. However, at times her teaching reflects the felt-needs and self-sanctification messages of contemporary Christian culture, and Reformed readers will notice some significant theological omissions.
Paige Britton is grateful for the gift of three fine teaching elders and the many active and inactive ruling elders at Faith Reformed Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.
