I have been waiting a loooong time for Erica Wiggenhorn’s new release from Moody Publishers – and at last it is here! “Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew – An 8-Week Bible Study of Luke” is a powerful, 40-lesson study that challenges us to “step into the streets of Jerusalem and encounter the Jewish Rabbi who turned the world upside down.”
As with most of the Moody Bible Studies for Women that I’ve completed, this book dives deep into Scripture, challenging readers to uncover God’s truths for themselves using in-depth questions and study tools. The unique and beautiful part about this book in particular is the focus is on Jesus, our relationship with Him, and our response to the question He posed not only to Peter, but also to each one of us: “Come, follow Me!”
Starting at the beginning of Luke and working our way through the book, we concentrate, cross-reference, and look deeper at the Scriptures with which we are so familiar – perhaps sometimes too familiar. Erica invites us to journey with her as, through fresh eyes, we study Jesus and His: Unexplainable Beginnings; Unexplainable Birth; Unexplainable Introductions; Unexplainable Teaching; Unexplainable Kingdom; Unexplainable Invitations; Unexplainable Confrontations; and Unexplainable Rescue.
In case you are wondering at the format of each day of this book, it is not simply a workbook with a daily Scripture selection to read and questions to answer afterwards. No, it is more like a profound visit with Erica as she pours her heart and soul into each daily reading, inviting us to seek Unexplainable Jesus for ourselves. A combination of personal experiences and carefully researched Biblical insights, Erica’s words invite deep inner thought-processing while still being warm and relatable, as though we are sitting next to each other in a close-knit Bible study class.
I honestly cannot say enough good things about Erica Wiggenhorn’s Bible Studies, and “Unexplainable Jesus” is her best yet. Even though I am only a few weeks into the study, the insight I am gaining is profound – and my relationship with my Savior is deepening. So thank you, Erica, for another Bible study that is life-changing. May God use this book to changes the lives of all who read it in ‘Unexplainable’ ways!
