Bible study workbooks...
Some are okay and others are golden. Recently I was gifted a golden one and I gotta say, Life Lessons from Romans, by Max Lucado, has been my morning focus for the past few weeks.
You know it’s good when you wake up excited about getting back to it!
I enjoy attending Bible studies at noon on Wednesdays, in Johnson, Indiana at Maumee Church. It was them who gifted me the workbook, even knowing I’d likely miss several sessions of the lesson due to my chemotherapy schedule.
I’m sooooo thankful they gave me the book anyway! I’ve been consistently blessed by it while working my way through it. I was especially thankful I got to enjoy the study with the whole group this past Wednesday.
Come mid-January, 2023, I should be finished with chemo and trusting the Lord to allow my life to get back on schedule and I’ll not have to miss the studies as often.
Another thing... They sent me home with three huge turnips! Why is that so cool? Because I recently learned how to cook turnips and have them come out tasting like potatoes. For a diabetic, anything that tastes like a starch but is actually keto is a blessing!
Because of this year’s cancer challenges, we weren’t able to grow a garden to produce our own vegetables, but God has provided fresh produce throughout the summer and into autumn via friends who were able to garden.

Back to the workbook...
Life Lessons from Romans It takes participants through each chapter of Romans, individually, and incorporates related scriptures from other parts of the Bible. It asks quality questions and provides ample space for writing answers as well as side notes, thoughts, etcetera. (An aspect I’ve used and loved!)
The breakdowns are engaging and the study works great for independent readers and groups. I'm doing both due to my schedule.
At Maumee, Pastor Kevin Miley leads the study, and he’s very good at it! He encourages the participation of everyone and genuinely listens and interacts with what they share.
Another aspect I love about this group is Paula Dickenson, of Owensville, Indiana. She’s the designated Scripture reader. If you ever have the privilege of hearing her do this, you’ll understand why I appreciate her job in the meetings. She has a beautiful voice and easily kept my attention focused on the Word in every sentence.
The duration of the study depends on the amount of participation. The study has an impact. When we finished, it remained on my mind throughout the rest of the day.
While I’ve been going through the book at home, I use a couple of Bibles for referencing. One is Young’s Literal Translation and the other is the World Messianic Bible. Lucado provides the King James and New International versions within the workbook.
Availability & pricing
Via Amazon, the pricing seems very affordable, at least hopefully for most. They have it listed at $7.99 USD for the Kindle version and $9.69 USD for the paperback.
I gotta recommend the paperback because of the note-taking areas. However, if you prefer digital note-taking the eBook will work fine, too. For Bible studies, I use (and recommend) Microsoft's OneNote for note-taking. It's compatible with Windows, Linux (Ubuntu), Android and Apple operating systems. I tend to opt for programs that work great and play well with all (or most) operating systems.
Every word of God is flawless.
