Live Deeply

Title: LIVE DEEPLY: A Study in the Parables of Jesus
Authors: Lenya Heitzig and Penny Rose
Publisher: David C. Cook
June 2009
ISBN: 978-1-434799-86-9
Genre: Inspirational/devotional

LIVE DEEPLY is a devotional for anyone who has ever wanted to know more about Jesus’ parables. It is an in-depth study guide for women—alone or with a small group—to dig deeper into the meaning of these parables.

The lessons are separated into one devotional per week, divided into sections for you to follow each day of the week. There are lots of suggested Bible reading, and questions for you to journal about, in order to get the most from this Bible study.

Based on the inductive Bible study method, each lesson carries vivid imagery of Ancient Israel, but includes modern applications for today.

Divided up into five L’s, this devotional includes

Lift up (prayer)
Look at (God’s word)
Learn about (new insights)
Live out (applications
Listen to (quotes from other believers)

If you have ever done a Beth Moore Bible study, this devotional reminded me strongly of the workbook I went through with Beth Moore, except there is no DVD to watch with this study.

I was very impressed with this devotional, and even though I just gave it a quick glance through this time, I will be going back through this book and spending more time—just twenty minutes a day—learning more about Jesus’ parables. Highly recommended. $14.99. 304 pages.
