Ne "kolay okunur" - dediğim zaman yukarı ve aşağı alınabilir ve bir otobüs / uçak / trende okumak !! İlk Marcia Willett kitabım !! Başka bir tane okuyabilirim. Muhtemelen hayır dükkanında bir tane almak !!
Studying the Bible is meant to instruct us, to uplift us, to bring us closer to God, and to make us want more. Word studies is just one of the wonderful ways we can study the Bible, a way to find a fuller, richer meaning to Scripture passages. "Deeper Into the Word" gives us information on 100 words from the New Testament. Words such as: rest, hungry, care, pray, remain, and chosen are given special treatment by Keri Kent as she gives us Scripture references, Greek meanings, and cross-references as needed; even treating us to thoughts from other people and commentaries. Each word study gives enough to enlighten the reader and encourage him/her to delve deeper. Each word study is relatively short, very easy to read and understand, and well worth sharing with others. I have enjoyed reading this book and learning more about these special New Testament words. It has spurred me to get back into word studies for my personal devotions. This book is great for personal or group Bible study, and will make a wonderful gift for Bible lovers. Many thanks to Bethany House for the opportunity to read and review this wonderful book.
Fun to read at first but it just goes on and on with variations of the same basic horror story. Your boss is a bitch, we get it. And other than that, there's not much going on in the book.
As a girl, cooking and baking were two of my favorite things to do, along with reading. This book combined both my likes. I loved all the Ginnie books, I can still remember what shelf they were on in my local public library. I'm sad that they are out of print, and very hard to find.
As far as pseudo/pop-academic books go, this was more pseudo than I thought it would be. The first chapter read more like a blog than an essay, with parenthetical asides every few sentences (as it turns out, the writer is also a blogger, hmm). Once I got over that things improved vastly. The chapter topics were varied and at times intricate. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on cars as extensions of a character's personality. Since my personal tastes lean more towards academia than totally pop, I got somewhat frustrated when writers brought up an interesting point and then either didn't pursue it or went in a superficial direction. If I had the book with me I'd look up one or two, but I've already lent it out to another VM fan. I particularly enjoyed Rob Thomas's mini-intros to each chapter, after I realized that it was him writing. In these half-page "asides" Thomas relates some behind the scene tidbits that relate (sometimes tangentially) to the following chapter. Any VM addict will eat these up. He talks about stuff that could have been in the series but was changed or how things weren't planned but got incorporated in a big way (like to Logan/Veronica relationship; imagine THAT never happening!). And now a moment of self-advertising-- I wrote a more academic essay about the first season of VM that will be published in an anthology of student essays, The World is a Text (3rd ed.). It comes out in August! I wish this book had been out when I wrote that paper...*sigh* Anyway... if nothing else, this collection of essays will make you want to watch your favorite episodes of VM (or all of the eps). I think right now my favorite season is #1, but we'll see.
