“The Spirit inspired the Word and therefore He goes where the Word goes.
The more of God’s Word you know and love, the more of God’s Spirit you will experience.” – John Piper
No matter who you are, the same Jesus who spoke creation to life wants to speak life into your circumstances now through His Word. We consume food to survive, but we consume His Word to truly live. So grab some friends to join your Bible study journey because experiencing Jesus is essential, doable, and awesome! Come – just as you authentically are – and prepare to meet Jesus for who He actually is. Ready?
My desire to write a Bible study series grew out of a longing to see people enjoy Jesus more intimately – to run to Him first, most, and in everything. Throughout history, Scripture is the primary and most trusted way that Christ reveals Himself to the world. Experiences are often heightened when greater understanding runs alongside it. For instance, a sports match is more exciting to watch when we know the rules of play. Music impacts more powerfully when the melodic sweep of the notes collides with lyrics that we actually grasp. Our personal experience of the life and work of Christ correlates to the depth of our understanding about who He actually is.
Have you ever felt like God has left you? Struggled with feelings of bitterness or doubt? Hopelessness? Ruth – Redeeming The Darkness is an in-depth, gospel-centred bible study on how Christ redeems even the ugliest types of darkness that lurk within and around us.
The book of Ruth is one of the most exquisitely written love stories ever penned. In it, words like love story, theatrical, and screenplay are accurate descriptors alongside historical, and gospel-centred. You see, the book of Ruth is unlike any other book of the Bible. She’s small enough in her four chapters to rest as a cute hardback on your coffee table, and profound enough to explode hope and redemption into your darkest pain and everyday frustrations. The book conveys the love story of Christ coming to redeem His people. Christ is coming for you. The host has ripped your ticket for Ruth’s next performance and you’ll be sitting front row centre as His guest of honor. Come expectantly and settle into your seat prayerfully. The orchestra is cued, and the curtain is pulling back for Act 1…

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“I have completed a lot of bible studies over the years, but few have grabbed my attention as quickly and held it as powerfully as ‘Ruth: Redeeming the Darkness’. Andrea guides the reader through the book of Ruth and takes them straight to the cross. This study will grow your appreciation for the Word of God, increase your competency in handling the Word of God, and bless your heart. It is my joy to recommend ‘Ruth: Redeeming the Darkness’ as a powerful tool to aid you in your study of God’s Word.” Stacey Weeks, author of Glorious Surrender
“Using beautifully descriptive, poetic language, Andrea does a masterful job of plumbing the depths of both the historical context and modern-day parallels and applications. Its message is both surprising and incredibly encouraging to those of us who find ourselves much like Ruth – pursuing ordinary lives in the midst of God’s great Love Story.” Bible study participant
“As the vivid picture of Naomi reveals your own feelings of hopelessness, bitterness, and despair, you will be captivated by a love story that becomes your own.” Bible study participant
Welcome to Amos – a book that jolts the church from her spiritual slumber and demands a clear response. The prophet Amos does not come to us with a message packaged in soft whispers and gentle hugs, but with loud, bellowing warning alarms. His message describes the sinful habits of the Israelite people who mirror with frightening similarity the Christian community today. They have consistently nurtured sins and ignored warnings of certain doom. An earthquake is but two years away and God is knocking on the hearts of His people. Will anybody open the door and let Him in?
