Sometimes, I like to take a break from doing self-guided bible study and do a prepackaged one. When I do Elizabeth George is one of my favorites. This, her study on 1 Peter, was no exception.

What I liked about it:
I loved the style of questions to answer. I found her thoughts and questions very helpful. This study wasn’t too long either. I didn’t get tired of it before it ended.

What I didn’t like about it:
The only thing that I didn’t like about it was sometime I didn’t agree with her interpretati

I enjoyed this simple, but profound Bible study on 1 Peter. It's amazing how much you learn by focusing on just a few verses at a time. I found a couple times that the reasoning Elizabeth George came to about a passage of scripture didn't make sense when I read the verse, but that could be the different use of versions (she used NKJV, while I use KJV). That being said I still enjoyed and recommend this book!

This was thought-provoking and soul-searching. Almost every chapter asked, "What do you learn about God in this passage?"

Not KJV

This is one of those Bible study experiences that was clearly given to me by the Holy Spirit when I most needed it. Elizabeth George has long been my favorite Bible study author. There is tremendous insight in her studies, but what I love most is her tender, loving, respectful tone to her readers. Even though I don't know her personally, she is a true mentor.

I am facing some personal struggles as a ministry wife, and I feel much of my emotional turmoil can be construed as "suffering", which make

I was hoping for a little more out if this book, as I feel this is such an important topic. I do appreciate, however, Ms. George sticking straight to the bible. There is no extra-biblical teaching here! I guess I was just hoping for some deeper application/explanation of the biblical standard of a "gentle-and quiet spirit." All in all, not a bad study if you're looking for something very basic with surface-level application.

This one was essential to me for growing to be a more godly woman as I seem to have a naturally loud personality and 'puttin on a gentle and quiet spirit' seems to be more of a challenge for me than it may be for most. :) Or, maybe not?

George closely examines the chapter of Peter and encourages readers to do the same through Bible study and reflection.

I found it helpful but not that memorable.

If you have wanted to do Bible study but felt you didn't have time to do justice to the study. Ms George does a wonderful job at putting this study of 1 Peter into segments that can be studied in about 15 minutes. She writes the reviews and adds questions that you can answer includes the actual scripture from the Bible so that way if you want to take this devotional with you on a bus ride or whatever you wouldn't have to take your Bible too (if you didn't want to).

This was an excellent book to study for our women's Sunday school class. The lessons only cover a few verses at a time, they take only a short time to complete, and there are good observations and notes for discussion. I especially liked the definition of gentle (not creating disturbances) and quiet (bearing with tranquility the disturbances caused by others). The book had good reminders to prepare your mind for action and to be intentional in all you do.

Read/completed this study a handful of years back, but with our church going through a current series on 1 Peter, I wanted to go back through it.
