My favorite thing in the world is a good Bible study, but as my daughter and I demonstrated in the video below, sometimes when we do “Bible Study” we tend to forget to include that one little book otherwise known as “The Bible.”

Now is the time to ACT… for Bible Study
ACTS240 Now is no weak, pathetic study. Greenman gives a solid workbook for you to dig deep into the Word and learn about the lives and teachings of Biblical heroes and what the Bible says about them. Every week has questions, charts–the works.
She also investigated the faith of pillars of the church through history and even patriots at the beginning of our country’s history. Frankly, as interesting as those topics are, I would have preferred if the book stuck strictly to Bible. With a title that holds a Bible reference in it, one can only assume it’ll be, well, about the Bible.
Another quibble I had was in regard to her telling us that the Lord told her to do something not expressly stated in the Bible.
Those who know me know that kind of “God speaking to me” is something I have trouble with. So, it’s a warning, but it didn’t actually affect the content of what the book teaches. Just making note for those like me who prefer to stick to what God has chosen to give us as His written word–more to be prepared than as a “warning” this time.
Would I recommend ACTs420 NOW? Yes, mostly. Two things affect my answer. First, because it’s a rather comprehensive study (for what it is), I did not do each exercise and read every word. I read enough to get a feel for whether I would enjoy it and for the accuracy of anything being taught. For the most part, those are solid, and I’m glad I requested a free review copy. My only hesitation is that this book bills itself as a Bible study (says so right in the synopsis) but the book studies more than the Bible. It studies history and the faith of other Christians as well. Personally, I think those things belong in another book. That’s my caveat.
