Journeyforth That I May Know Him: A Women's Bible Study

The Scriptures record the stories of three women who were touched by the Lord in intimate and life-changing encounters. In this 12-week women's Bible study, the author takes students through the experiences of Hagar in the wilderness, the woman at the well, and Hannah in prayer in God's temple. Women see how the Lord singled out certain individuals from the multitudes of needy souls He ministered to and revealed particular aspects of Himself in His dealings with each one. Kimmel, the wife of a pastor, draws from her years of experience in women's ministries to bring warm, personal insight to this rewarding study.

Our ladies Sunday school class used this book as a study and we were so blessed! It is refreshing to find a ladies study that actually focuses upon the truths of Scripture and not the summation of individuals. In this study we learned to know the Lord better through examining the lives of three different biblical women. As we worked through this study that is packed with Scripture, we saw a God who sees, cares, and hears us. After looking at the biblical examples, this study also provided opportunities for us to apply these truths to our lives and circumstances. There were numerous Scriptures to read and places to record our responses to God’s truth. If you are looking for a study that will challenge, strengthen, and comfort your heart and faith, this is it!

This Bible study is poorly written, jumping from theme to theme with no discernable bridge or transition. In one section, she talks about and has the reader look up verses from Acts about the growth of the church in the first century, but she doesn't tie any of it in with her focus on God using the individual (specifically, the reader). She simply has the reader look up verses. No exposition or explaination or application. This happened often, in every lesson. The reader is repeatedly left floundering, wondering at the meaning of the listed verses, trying to figure out what relevance they have to the women the study is supposed to cover. There are a lot of blanks to fill out, but little guidance or application given by June Kimmel, the author, to guide the reader sufficiently.In several places where the reader has to look up Scripture to find an answer to fill in the blank, the wrong verse is listed. For example, in one section, the reader is to look up a list of verses that deal with sacrifice. Most of the verses speak of praise, obedience, family, service. Then, out of the blue, a verse in the middle of the list is about David buying a threshing floor and some oxen.There is also a lot of misinterpretation of Scripture, usually from taking verses out of context, in this book. June Kimmel seems to know a lot of verses, but applies them with a broad brush, ignoring what the verses actually mean and who they were originally written for or about. She misses the point often.Lastly, Kimmel makes a lot of Scripturally unfounded assumptions about the three women who are very loosely studied in this book. She assigns modern motives and feelings to each of them, taking the women grossly out of their cultural context, thus misrepresenting them as well as their situations.I would not recommend this book.

We were not too pleased with this study thinking it would be more about drawing closer to God and learning about Him in that way. Instead, it focuses on His attributes. June presents it in, what I think is, a overly simple way, not going very deep. When we met as a group, though, we were able to use the study do talk deeper than it went, and we were blessed using it that way.

June writes excellent women's Bible studies! She has taught women's Bible studies for years and is an excellent teacher. I highly recommend all 3 of her Bible studies; they all use the KJV Bible. I have recommended this book all over the country and many of the ladies that have used it tell me what a help and blessing it has been to them.

This Bible Study was a blessing to me and to the other 9 women in the Women's Bible Study group. It is a new group and I picked this study by reviewing it online before purchasing. It is everything and more than I had hoped it to be. Through this study we have come closer in knowing our Lord and Savior, Jesus and have seen His love, and compassion for the lost. We have seen that our focus should be on Him and His mission to reach the lost. This book has put a passion in our hearts to reach out to others with the Good News of the Gospel. We look forward to our next study by June Kimmel, " A Life Surrendered".

This came well recommended to us and it has lived up to its recommendation. It will do well for personal as well as group study. The only problem is an infrequent question that is confusing as to the answer sought. That being said, the book has done well at increasing the knowledge of God and devotion to Him.
