Jen Wilkin’s book, “Women of the Word: How to study the Bible with both our hearts and our minds,” has just been released by Crossway and it has made into my latest list of books to start reading. Wilkin is passionate about teaching women how to study the Bible and that thrills me.
I’m particularly excited to learn how to study the Bible better for myself and so I can pass that knowledge on. I’ve only just begun the book, but loved these remarks and wanted to share it:
“Learning firsthand the painful fallout of wrong teaching sparked in me a desire to know for myself what the Bible taught … But I didn’t know where to begin to fix the problem.”
“[T]he task seemed overwhelming. Where was I supposed to start? And why weren’t the things I was already doing making the problem discernibly better? How was I supposed to move the mountain of my biblical ignorance? The answer, of course, was gloriously simple. The answer was ‘one spoonful at a time.’ Thankfully, someone gave me a spoon.”
Wilkin is now passing the spoons around and encouraging us all to start digging. I don’t know about you, but I’m in.
