Drawn in Bible Study Ruth Discovering your Place in God's Story Book Review


Peterson takes us through the “small story of two widows and a farmer in their out-of-the-way village.” Each of the four sessions begins with some introductory questions to ask yourself, tying into that session’s lessons on Ruth, followed by a number of Scripture passages and related questions, helping you delve deeper into Ruth’s story. Each session also includes several full one- and two-page images to color, as well as several small images throughout the Book.
 
Color with Friends. Be Drawn In to Scripture. Struck by tragedy. On the fringes of society. Seizing upon hope. Ruth didn’t wait for hope to arrive. She sought it out and grabbed hold of it. Compelled by need, animated by faith, she dared to leave the only land she knew. Ruth’s resilience and resourcefulness offer you a creative vision to navigate life’s inevitable struggles, trust God, and hold fast to his irrevocable hope.

Deepen your friendships as you gather around Scripture for coloring and conversation. Drawn In offers simple four-week Bible studies―perfect for groups or personal devotions. Coloring quiets your heart and mind so you can enter fully into Scripture’s stories. The Bible’s passion and personality come through in The Message, surprising new and long-time Bible readers alike. Discover the delight of being Drawn In.
My Thoughts:
We just recently celebrated Shavuot and typically the book of Ruth is read. This has been a delightful and heartfelt story leading up to Shavout. This is a beautiful adult coloring book. I love the story of Ruth as it’s a beautiful story of God’s love.
This is a great size book that will easily fit in a purse or backpack. The book has 74 pages. The pages are thick and I didn’t have any bleed through with several different types of art medians. The coloring pages vary from lots of intricate details to pages with fewer details. 
This starts out with a nice Introduction explaining some of Eugene H. Peterson life experiences and a brief not on the beautiful story of Ruth.
The next part is “How to Get The Most out Of Ruth”. How do you use this coloring/devotional as a Bible study. The Study consist of five parts: Coloring/Message/The Questions/The Commentary/Leader’s Notes. This section will give you a suggested way to get the most out of this study.
The Bible study is broken up in four seasons:
 1.God Has Dealt Me a Hard Blow
2. Don't Worry About a Thing
3. Maybe It's Time to Make Our Move
4. He'll Make You Young Again
Each of the four sessions begins with a thought provoking question for you to search yourself for the answer. Next, there are several questions for you that you write down your answer in the book. A portion of the story of Ruth from the Bible is read which is in the book. Afterwards it is followed by more questions that you can record your answer in the provided space. Each session also includes several full one- and two-page illustrations to color, as well as several small images throughout the session.
At the end of the book there is a section on How to Lead a Drawn in Bible Study.
This is a lovely study. I thought it was unique as an adult coloring book as it’s also a Bible Study. The depth that is put into this would make a great study as an individual or in a group setting.
