Because this video does not break into chapters like the book and workbook, it is aimed at a different audience. I purchased it thinking that I could show clips from it with each of our lessons, but discovered that it was better to watch in whole than in part.
A great purchase, but not necessary for the study itself.
My main complaint with this book was what I would call the "filler stuff"--I feel as if there were way too many direct quotes from Mrs. Higgs sources. I really think she could have re-worded a lot of the quotes and made them more her own. It also bothered me that she repeated whole verses or parts of verses from numerous different versions of the Bible. Although I believe the King James to be the "best" translation, I am not averse to *all* other translations...still, it got to be almost confusing, especially when she was quoting certain verses from three or four different versions and those versions were saying some VERY different things. She really should have picked one translation and stuck with it.
My favorite part of the whole book? The comparison between contemporary storylines and Biblical stories! Mrs Higgs left me wanting to learn more, especially about Sarah's and Leah's contemporary characters. Overall, I'm glad that I picked this up because I do feel as if I may have learned a little bit from it, and even that little bit is something. I'm also looking forward to reading the other two books in the "series".
At issue is the fact that we as women often think that God can't use us, simply because we aren't perfect. At the same time, God has always used flawed human beings, both men and women, to accomplish God's own purpose. If you are reading this as an individual, I recommend that you simply grab the book and go, but if you are leading a group of women (or mixed group), I strongly suggest incorporating the workbook into your group.
For a shorter lesson, with a few more laughs, I suggest Slightly Bad Girls. However, the video doesn't correspond one on one with the book and workbook, so it might work best without the other two.
