Book Review: Bridges on the Journey
Bridges on the Journey: Choosing an Intimate Relationship with Jesus
By Gigi Busa, Ruth Forbes, Judy Miller and Vollie Sanders
English, 96 pgs
Bridges on the Journey will help you and your discipleship group learn the basics of the Christian life—Bible study, living in community, sharing your faith, memorizing Scripture—that will keep you going for a lifetime of relationship with Jesus.
Through fundamental spiritual disciplines, you’ll get started on the right path to begin a discipling process in your life and the lives of other women.
Written by several Navigator authors especially for women, this Bible study will help you form habits and attitudes that will result in a deeper relationship with God and spiritual growth.
I got this book because I'm going to start a mentoring/discipling relationship and I didn't really know where to start. I love it. It's a basic beginning for us to get to know each other and to learn about Jesus together. This is set up with 6 sessions, which we will do weekly separately and then meet to discuss. It starts so simply with "How do I come to know Jesus?" will move (through the other two books in the series) into how to mentor someone else. I like that there are leader guidelines and a personal journal area in the back. I'm looking forward to working through this so much, I bought a copy for her!
I received a copy of the book from NavPress in exchange for an honest review.
