Ruth: Becoming a Girl of Loyalty Review

Book Review: 

I have read other bible studies from Dannah Gresh that are targeted towards tween and teen girls and I have enjoyed all of them. This book is a new one in her True Girl Bible Studies series.

Gresh works through the story of Ruth in just enough details for a tween to stay engaged throughout. What I loved most about this book is that she teaches tweens how to study the Bible for themselves. This task can be quite a leap and intimidating for many parents. But a study like this is a wonderful way for parents to start the discipline of bible study with their children.

Just like her other books for tweens, the illustrations are fun and relatable. She provides many activities, discussion questions, and scripture references. There are many sections that allow for journaling or writing thoughts. The study itself is not long with only six chapters. This is just the right amount for a tween to stay engaged and still gain wisdom and discipline. I appreciate that she makes the reader work for the answer. She utilizes puzzles and specific study methods to help the reader decipher Scripture on their own rather than handing out the answers.

She includes a section that walks a tween through accepting Christ as well as a section for moms or small group leaders to use in a one-on-one or group setting.

I'm excited for when my daughter is a bit older and we can walk through this study together. Gresh has provided one more wonderful book to help lead young girls to Christ.

I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review
