Heather Holliman brings to the table something game changing. When women speak God's word with authority, hearts are moved and changed. A wise woman once said "Christian women, studying doctrine is not a male sport you've been excluded from participating in." As a Christian woman, there are few things more valuable than learning from those who know the Word and aren't afraid to stand on it's authority. Many woman's Bible studies are very cheesy and much more about feelings than facts. Heather found the perfect balance between addressing the emotional needs and devastations that we find ourselves in, as well as hitting them hard with scriptural truth which brings along true and lasting change. She tackles a very difficult book of the Bible, Ephesians, and dives into hard questions we have such as what it means to be chosen and identified in Christ, the topic of predestination, and how our minds deceive our hearts. She brings about an interactive study that causes us to engage by thinking through our answers to her sincere questions and really examining ourselves. She brings to life visual representations with her words that will cause you to remember these truths for years to come. Something amazing happens when a woman is fiercely aware of her identity in Christ, and this book will show you what that truly means.
This study is for any woman's walk of life in any season she may find herself in. You will take with you the truth that you are not called to live in your shadow narrative, but to walk in your savior story.
I received a copy of Included in Christ from Moody Publishers for the purpose of this review. I would recommend this book to any woman or woman's group and will be sharing with my friends.
