“Servants of the Lord: A Bible Study Handbook” is a great tool, especially for those inexperienced with those unsure how to have an effective Bible study. I enjoyed reading the short biographies on people I knew little, or nothing at all, about.
- Useful information
- Strong citations
- A compelling introduction with interesting, although sobering, statistics
- Overall, this study guide was easy to understand
- Helpful knowledge on formal writing and public speaking, which ends up being very useful for those with little or no experience.
- A great progression of material from the basics, of the story of scripture, to study examples
- A little formatting issues. For example: in the Table of Content, John Foxe was absent, because his name is not given a subheading.
- Within Servants of the Lord: A Bible Study Handbook, under part three of the gospel section, it irked me there wasn’t any information given on why the four gospels are anonymous. Not because I disagree, but because there would be confusion of someone reading this who doesn’t realize. Therefore, more explanation is required by going into each of the four gospels and why they are anonymous works. It would be helpful to look at the counterevidence for each gospel because, for example, there is more of an argument for the authorship of the Gospel according to John than Matthew. To put it plainly, I believe the lumping of the gospels into the same category here is not needed, and the reasons they are anonymous require expanding.
*My opinion: what I didn’t care for or do not prefer. This will not lower a rating unless it overly distracts from the story.
