Jesus: Understanding His Death and Resurrection

In preparation for Easter this Sunday, I had the privilege of reading and reviewing "Jesus: Understanding His Death and Resurrection" by Kay Arthur and David Arthur. It's a 6 week, no-homework Bible Study perfect for small groups, Sunday school lessons, or even a family Bible study.

Just as the cover implies, this is a very simple study to work through. The book is somewhat small in size measuring approximately 8 inches tall. It includes 88 pages of study meant to be broken down into 6 sessions, but can also be divided into 8 or 10 weeks if need be.

The book begins with simple instructions on how to follow the study. It then goes through the Passover from Exodus, and how it helped to set God's people free. It then explains the Passover from the New Testament and how it will be different from any other Passover before.

What's really cool about this study is that it's pretty much all-in-one. What I mean by that is that it includes the Bible verses in it's text. There is an "Observation" period where the leader reads through the Bible verses, and then the "Discussion" where the leader asks questions about what he just read. There are also small sections called "Insight" where it explains certain parts of the story that readers may not be familiar with. At the end of the chapter is "Wrap It Up", which is pretty self explanatory.

All in all, this is a very simple Bible Study that's easy to understand. I think it would be excellent for a family Bible Study considering the way it's set up. It explains things very well, so it would be ideal for someone who has children 10 and older. I rate this book as 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
