Use This Study to Dig Deep Into the Scriptures

  • Sep 11, 2012
Some of the most pointed word pictures from Jesus were his parables. How can you understand these stories and how they apply to your daily life? Cheri Cowell has studied these stories and created a remarkable resource in PARABLES & WORD PICTURES. As Cowell writes in the opening pages, "Parables use objects and situations common to the audience for whom the parable is given. But when these scenarios are no longer common, we must do a little digging to fully understand what Jesus was saying then and now." (Page 3)

I love the layout and easy to use format of PARABLES & WORD PICTURES. This thirteen week Bible study is perfect for individuals or small groups. The combined Biblical insight is combined with pick-up-your-pen-and-write-in-the-blanks space. If you are looking for a fresh look at the parables of Jesus, then I recommend this book.

As the author of Direction: Discernment for the Decisions of Your Life (Beacon Hill, 2007) and over 300 articles, Cheri’s love of story and the Holy Word shines through in her writing and teaching.

In 2011 she earned a Masters in Theological Studies degree from Asbury Seminary, where Cheri studied under Dr. Brian Russell, who apprenticed under Dr. Robert A. Traina. It is his Inductive Bible Study method combined with Dr. Russell’s own Missional Hearmenuetics that has given Cheri a newfound joy in studying the Bible and its Grand Narrative.

Through writing and speaking she shares this sidewalk-tested faith to encourage, challenge, and equip the body of Christ to live Story-shaped lives.
