Included in Christ:Leaving a New Story from Ephesians by Heather Holleman
Little description: A new kind of Bible study…
After the success of her first two books, Heather Holleman received many requests to write a Bible study. And as a college English instructor, she wanted to make sure it really taught and didn’t simply inform. So she surveyed several women about what their dream study would look like, then got to work.
The result is Included in Christ, a narrative-driven study where you can bring your life before Scripture in the context of community. Together women will discern their personal shadow narratives—ways they are living outside of their identity in Christ—and then rewrite those narratives according to biblical truth.
This in-depth, 8-week study in Ephesians willequip women with six “signature stories” of God’s work in their lives—helping them combat exclusion, loneliness, weakness, decay, emptiness, and silence.
Designed to facilitate honest sharing and help you internalize biblical truth, Included in Christ will provide community and connectedness as well as spiritual nourishment. It will also guide you in how to share your story and the hope of Christ with someone who doesn’t yet know Him.
Genre: Christian Living/ Bible Study/ Devotional/ Cell Group

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Heather Holleman leads us to dive in into the Ephesians like no other Bible Study… She provided the workbook with a journaling space to write down reflections, thoughts, questions and to road map the advances in traveling through the Ephesians… Being a composition teacher and an advanced writing instructor, Heather combines the experience in reading, reflecting and creating your own Ephesians in every person who is brave enough to take on this course.
I love her writing style, and the design of the workbook is a nice size to carry and write in. Great for the personal development and with the Small Groups of Bible Study.
She points out that all, the Jews and the Gentiles are both included in Christ and His Kingdom.
