“Pastors and Christian educators are always on the lookout for rich, wellresearched, reliable, helpful, clear teaching material that will get our people into the Word together, helping us to understand its meaning, to see its implications for us in all of life, and to pray it back to God. These studies supply us with precisely that.”
—Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
“Kathleen is a gifted communicator. In these studies, with quiet restraint, Kathleen puts her communication skills to use by carefully crafting questions so that it is not her voice you hear. Rather, the student is drawn into Scripture, is given the opportunity to study the very words of God, and learns to hear the Savior speak.”
—Teren Sechrist, President, Livingston Classical Academy, Whitmore Lake, Michigan
“Kathleen’s studies will gently lead you to unpack the Scriptures and to sit at the feet of Jesus. With a wonderful balance of truth and application, she ensures that the journey from head to heart is a transforming one. We have enjoyed using this material in our Bible studies for years and look forward to many more titles.”
—Kari Stainback, Director of Women’s Ministries, Park Cities Presbyterian Church, Dallas
