D.I.V.E. DEEPER



                    (Finding deep faith beyond shallow religion.)
By Jenifer Jernigan

Mrs. Jernigan takes the readers through a systematic study of the book of Ephesians. She also takes those scholars on some side excursions into other parts of the New Testament and into the Old Testament when necessary.
This is a Bible study text I believe would be best studied in a group. That way the scholars would be able to give and receive encouragement from one another.
In this book, the author gives us, who take up this study, a series of steps with which to explore the depths of Paul’s message to the Ephesians. She uses the acrostic D I V E. This means dive, investigate, visualize, and embrace.

In the back of the book she includes five appendices a serious Bible scholar would find most helpful.

Although this Bible study is very well presented, I am concerned about the price of the study book. Several of my friends are on a fixed income and might not be able to purchase a Bible study book in this price range.

I received a copy of this book from Booklook Bloggers, a program of Harper Collins Christian Publishing Inc. via Thomas Nelson Publishing. All they asked me to do was read it and give an 
unbiased review.

  1. Hi Cecelia! This sounds like a great study for me because I do love St. Paul. I wonder if this is actually too scholarly for me though? Again, I appreciate your honest assessment of the price. You are a great reviewer for me!
