Introduction to The Study Bible for Women ®
Opening God's Word to women through a comprehensive study of Scripture prepared by women for women on subjects important to women is not really a modern phenomenon. The apostle Paul placed within his discussion on church order a mandate for spiritually mature women to teach women who were new to the faith (Ti 2:3-5). In the modern era as well, women are devoting personal time and resources to diligent study of God's Word and woman-towoman instruction.
The Study Bible for Women, together with the Old and New Testament volumes of the Women's Evangelical Commentary, completes a trilogy of unique tools for unlocking the riches of Holy Scripture. These three volumes, without apology, are prepared primarily for women to use in personal study and preparation for teaching. In the Study Bible, women will find guidance for unfolding the clear meaning of Scripture as well as timely challenges to fashion their lives accordingly, written by believing sisters in the Lord who have a passion for woman-to-woman exposition and who are uniquely prepared to explain the Scriptures. The women who contributed to these volumes model disciplined reading of Scripture according to carefully defined hermeneutical boundaries, resulting in:
distinctive exegesis that pulls out the meaning of the text rather than reading into the text their own personal opinions;
sensitivity to apply Scripture to the particular needs and questions of women without using a feminist "gender lens";
intuitive scholarship — the linking of discerning intuition with the discipline of scholarship;
cultivation of mentoring friendships that offer common ground instead of polarity in the tasks of understanding and teaching the Bible; and
creativity in connecting mind and heart, doctrine and practical service, firm biblical boundaries, and relevant life applications.
Scripture provides all you need for "life and godliness," and The Study Bible for Women is the perfect tool for discovering this provision (1Pt 1:3). Its specially designed features offer to any woman who comes to Scripture with an open heart and ready mind a catalyst for personal study of God's Word as well as resources for teaching other women how to read and study the Scriptures. The introduction to each of the Bible's sixty-six books answers basic fact questions about the book, explains what the book is about, offers good reasons for women to read it, and provides guidance for studying it effectively. Also included are a carefully selected key verse that captures one of the book's themes, a timeline situating people and main events in history, and a content outline that provides a helpful overview of the book and its structure. The study notes in the outer margins offer insights on difficult-to-understand passages and spotlight important truths. In addition, "threads" of specialized study are woven throughout — explanations of foundational doctrines, profiles of biblical women, relevant discussions of biblical womanhood, helpful word studies, and answers to hard questions prompted by the text of Scripture. At the end of each book is a devotional word of application, celebration, encouragement, or other means of allowing the Holy Spirit to write the particular truths of that book on your own heart.
Come to Scripture with a teachable heart ready to hear God speak, respond to Him in obedience, and find your place in His story. The godly woman will seek to conform her beliefs and behavior to Scripture, not pick and choose what Scripture is most agreeable to her own desires. Attentiveness to the Word of God, willingness to explore its depths, and eagerness to meet and enjoy fellowship with its divine Author will inspire your readiness to become a wise woman whose life is securely built on the rock of doing whatever the Lord says (Mt 7:24-25). May the Lord grant to each of you who uses this Study Bible a renewed commitment of personal time and the determination to pursue the riches found in serious study of God's Word — not only for yourself but also for the women you will teach as the Word is continually written on your heart.
Yours for a journey through God's Word,
Dorothy Kelley Patterson(Continues…)
