"Set Apart" by Jennifer Kennedy Dean  Dec 23, 2009
Set Apart

by Jennifer Kennedy Dean
A 6-week study of the Beatitudes

Set Apart is a 6-week interactive Bible study perfectly suited to either group or individual study. In this study, author Jennifer Kennedy Dean explores the Beatitudes. By bringing in the distinctively Jewish setting of Jesus' inaugural sermon, Jennifer uncovers fresh nuances and overlooked undertones. Her distinctive communication style and approach to the Scripture is on full display in this challenging, encouraging , indispensable study.



My review: Jennifer Kennedy Dean has a keen style of writing word pictures that displays deep spiritual meanings to help you understand and picture the truths she is presenting. Her teaching is very indepth, personal and thorough.

She begins her study on the distinctive differences between Law and Grace, Old Testament and New Testament, which are the stepping stones to the balance of the teachings on the Beatitudes, which are thoroughly examined in the remainder of her book. Great for personal or group study!

My only `complaint' would be that there are not enough study questions to make us dig out additional spiritual truths personally through cross-referencing, etc.

I received a free copy of this study from Jonathan at New Hope Publishers for the express purpose of reviewing. I do this for the pleasure of encouraging others to read/study the books I review. My thanks to New Hope Publishers for this grand opportunity.
 
Set Apart  Dec 21, 2009
Set Apart by Jennifer Kennedy Dean is a new 6-week Bible study of the Beatitudes, Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. This Bible study uses the Sermon on the Mount to teach us how to be holy in order to bring us happiness. The study is divided into six weeks with each week containing five lessons.

I have always wanted to do a Bible study of the Beatitudes. I love to read the words of Jesus and to be drawn closer to Him. While Set Apart has some strong points, there were a few things I did not care for. First is the use of the word `happiness'. Now, this is just a personal preference, but happiness is not one of the fruits of the spirit. Holiness involves joy and peace in addition to the other fruits of the spirit. I feel the terminology makes a big difference.

This Bible study started out a bit dry, but it does get better the further you go in the study. Jesus' words are infused throughout and that alone makes for a very meaningful study. The questions that go along with each day's reading are very good questions and enhance the learning experience.
Overall, Set Apart is a good Bible study apart from the few issues I had with it. Many of the issues I had were based on personal preference, but I still found this to be a useful and uplifting study.

A solid and very recommended read for religious readers looking for some spiritual enlightenment  Dec 16, 2009
Perhaps the simplest path to happiness is returning to religious roots. "Set Apart: A 6-week Study of the Beatitudes" is Jennifer Kennedy Dean's encouragement for readers to seek out God in their life using the Beatitudes and the Sermon of the Mount. Spiritual and divinely encouraging to readers, "Set Apart" is a solid and very recommended read for religious readers looking for some spiritual enlightenment.
 
Wonderful Study on the Beatitudes  Nov 25, 2009
Set Apart is a six-week Bible study through the Beatitudes. Jennifer Kennedy Dean walks readers through the study of Sermon on the Mount. We were made for holiness, and this core concept of the Beatitudes is accessed through a praying life--a life lived in the present-tense power of God. It is only when we continually pursue holiness that blessedness comes, and we discover the power and fulfillment of the promise of God.

I have enjoyed reading two studies from Jennifer Kennedy Dean this last year. I reviewed Live A Praying Life earlier this year and her newly released study Set Apart have both blessed me in my spiritual walk. In Set Apart Jennifer Kennedy Dean looks at What Is the Law, Acquainted with Grief, The Meekest Men, Merciful Savior, Peace with God, and The Heart of Prayer (just to name a few topics). I love her authenticity and while studing the passage for each day I felt like--even though I have heard the Beatitudes many times--I was learning something new each day. This would be a great bible study to add to your list.
 
An Eye-Opening 6-Week Bible Study on the Beatitudes  Nov 7, 2009
Jennifer Kennedy Dean's Bible Study "Set Apart" is an eye-opening 6-week look into the Beatitudes. Although I haven't gone through the entire study at the time of the writing of this review, I feel confident in recommending it to individuals and groups for Bible study. I only previewed the study guide, and not the DVD or leader materials. But I was highly impressed with the depth of study that can be experienced at various levels from beginner to experienced Bible student. This is a beautiful study that will deepen your relationship with Christ.
