Mary Jean's Bible study curriculums have been used successfully by different small group ministries around the country. The lessons seem to fill a niche between the more generic Bible studies written for a broad audience and the more in-depth type lessons that take several hours over several days to complete.
Following are some statements by individuals who have used the lessons in a variety of small groups:
Mary Jean's lessons are from the heart . . . and truths are revealed through Jesus Christ in our hearts . . .
These lessons are more than a "fill in the blank" type of lesson. They encourage you to think about what you have read in a deeper way, so that you can take what you learn and apply it to your life . . .
This curriculum has been informational, inspirational, and transformational in my life. It has helped me to not only know more about Christ, but to be more like Him . . .
The framing of the questions make me want to know the answer. After answering the questions from Scripture, there are questions that promote practical application and spiritual implications . . .
The questions are designed to get the most out of the Biblical text. They require thought, but are not obscure or confusing as I have found with some other lesson plans . . .
These studies provided a good balance between doctrinal and practical questions, as well as providing both in-depth questions for study at home and discussion questions as we gathered for study together . . .
These unique lessons are peppered with cross references and speak right to the heart of both the seasoned Bible student as well as those new to Bible study. You will find these lessons give living water to thirsty souls . . .
These lessons not only help you to understand the Bible better, but help you to see how it applies to your life. Each week that I do my lesson, I feel that I learn so many things that I would not otherwise learn by just reading the Bible on my own . . .
