Women's Ministry STUDY Books

A summary of the recommended books for 2017-1018

Each year the ARP Women’s ministry recommends three books for unified study by the women in our churches: a Bible study, a spiritual life study and a personal reading book. The main study is based on a Bible book that is then used as the theme for the Family Bible Conference teaching. Seminars are offered and recorded which help with teaching or leading these studies. The recordings can be seen at ARPCEM.org under Training / ARPWM.


Books are available for purchase through our ARP Bookstore.

Orders of 10 or more receive free shipping and handling with the code ARPWM2017.


RECOMMENDED STUDY BOOKS FOR 2017-2018

LIVING IN THE GAP BETWEEN PROMISE AND REALITY,

by IAN DUGUID

A chronological exposition and commentary on the life and faith of Abraham.


Duguid takes us through Gen 12 -25.


An intro and 15 chapters with 4-6 reflective questions at the end each chapter.


Great Study For every Bible student.

THE PRODIGAL GOD, by TIM KELLER

Keller explores the parable from the perspective of the younger brother, the older brother, and the father.

Our sinful selfishness and lack of grace toward others is contrasted in the lavishness of the father’s love

and forgiveness. For seekers and believers.


Three separate items available for purchase:

  • PAPERBACK :: An introduction and 7 easily read chapters. No questions or discussion guide included.
  • DISCUSSION GUIDE: follows the 6 book chapters, giving questions and additional text notes. It includes a teaching excerpt from Keller’s Gospel in Life, on idolatry. It references the DVD, but is a good stand alone supplement to study of the book.
  • DVD CURRICULUM KIT : study guide, hardback copy of the book and DVD.

IDOLS OF THE HEART by Elyse Fitzpatrick, paperback

A topical study in 12 chapters with review questions for discussion and application.

Elyse Fitzpatrick delves into those things and thoughts in our lives that distract us from true worship of God and become idols, taking on greater importance than God. Written more for the believer than for seekers.
