Fatal Distractions Review

 

NewImage

I'll be honest and say that when I first requested Fatal Distractions by Kay Arthur and David and BJ Lawson for review, I thought it was an actual chapter-book.  When I got it I realized it was a Bible study guide, so it wasn't exactly what I was expecting.  

However, I went ahead and did the study, and I have to say I thought it was really good.  This is a study guide that covers six of the seven deadly sins - pride, anger, jealousy, gluttony, slothfulness, and greed.  When I first saw that list I subconsciously checked a few of them off in my head as things that wouldn't really be applicable to me.  

But Arthur and the Lawson's do a great job of putting together Bible passages and questions to really make you search yourself to see if any of these sins might be something that is sneaking into your day-to-day.  I found so many practical applications and challenges through doing this study, so even though it wasn't what I was expecting when I first ordered it, I ended up getting a lot out of it.  

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a personal Bible study, and I do think it would be great as a group study too, because as the cover says, it really is a "no homework" Bible study guide.  I just wish I could have spent a little more time on it!  I had to read it in a bit of a hurry so I could post this review.

Note: I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multonomah Publishing Group as part of their Blogging For Books program in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
