My husband and I lead a small group Bible study, and our group just finished working through this book. It was great! The questions are a great mix of in-depth discussion starters and basic did-you-understand-it questions. The leader guide in the back provides extra insight that's helpful for leading the discussion. Our group learned and grew a lot throughout the study.
The hardest thing about buying Bible studies online is not being able to look at the content beforehand, so here's a bit of a preview.
The study contains 9 lessons dealing with the following couples:
Adam and Eve
Abraham and Sarah
Isaac and Rebekah
Jacob and Rachel
Boaz and Ruth
Elkanah and Hannah
David and Abigail
Hosea and Gomer
King Xerxes and Esther
Our only surprise in using this study was just how much it is geared toward couples. While that does make sense considering the topic, we expected it to be a bit more singles-friendly. Many of the questions and almost all of the "Now or Later" sections are really most appropriate for married couples. This study will work with a mix of singles and married folk (which is what we have in our Bible study group), but it's definitely not appropriate for a single adults Bible study class.
