East St. Louis, Ill. (PRWEB) January 25, 2013
With her new fun-filled compilation, “Skits with a Touch of Humor and Women of the Bible Study Guides: Under the Magnifying Glass: Taking a Closer Look at the Women of the Bible” (published by CrossBooks), Edna Yvonne James allows readers to eavesdrop on conversations between the women of the Bible.
Using a good dose of humor, James has pulled back the curtain on several women of the Bible to point out spiritual truths that do not stray from biblical teachings. She shows how Eve may have dealt with everyone faulting her for eating the apple, explores the rivalry between sisters Rebekah and Leah, and reveals the deep friendship and love between Naomi and Ruth. Several other skits also focus on how biblical women dealt with the consequences of their decisions.
In addition, James includes a study guide for each skit. She provides the relevant Bible verses pertaining to the stories, and asks pertinent questions for further reflection. Women of all ages can use these guides to stop and think about their lives and how they might have responded if they had been faced with the same circumstances as these biblical women.
Useful for Sunday school lessons, women’s groups or ministries, “Skits with a Touch of Humor and Women of the Bible Study Guides” is sure to inspire and encourage.
