Laura Dingman sat on the precipice of an unknown future. Unsure of what was to come, God nudged her in to write in her journal, not about all the things that she did not know, but what she did know. What flowed was a list of affirmations of the characteristics of God, who is unchanging even in turbulent times.
Laura has taken this personal moment with God and turned it into a Bible study that feels like getting back to basics - in the best way. Over the course of 6 weeks, this study takes readers through an exploration of who the Bible says God is (he is sovereign, creator, cornerstone, helper, with us) and then asks the question, do we really believe it?
Throughout the study, Laura gently teaches readers many different ways to study and immerse oneself in scripture, making use of the S.O.A.P. method of studying the Bible, the 4 L’s (Listen, Linger, Learn, Live) and a modified version of Lectio Divina, to name a few. This study would be appropriate for someone just beginning to read the Bible, while being challenging enough for someone who is quite Biblically literate.
I really appreciated the way the weeks were organized thematically, the layout of the study which offers space to write directly into the book, and the beautiful poems, prayers and quotes that were included.
As Corrie Ten Boom once famously said, we can trust an unknown future to a known God.
