[Book Review] Reflecting Him by Carla McDougal

Posted 16 July, 2010 by Molly in Book Reviews / 1 Comment



About Reflecting Him
Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It
is a ten-week women’s Bible study. Like Jesus’ parables (which teach important lessons by creating visual pictures for the reader), Reflecting Him uses familiar objects and situations (such as pottery, the human sensory system, and the sun-earth connection) and draws comparisons that help women become aware of Jesus working in various areas of their daily lives. The study is a unique and convenient lay-flat format, so you can write without that annoying bump (you know the one we’re talking about.)

Each week is divided into five days (lessons), supporting the central theme for the week. Read the first two chapters (or weeks) online.

The study also has an online component through a Reflecting Him Bible Study Group on Facebook. Individuals working through the study on their own can still get the benefits of a group discussion while working at their own pace. More than 200 people are in the group already and the discussions are really taking off.

This fall a leaders guide, videos, and music will be released to accompany the study.

My Review:
Reflecting Him is wonderful! A 10 week Bible Study to live for Him! Outstanding! Of course, I don’t belong to a Bible Study so I chose to do this on my own at my own pace and loved every minute of it. 


Through Reflecting Him, the author breaks down aspects of life to compare it to spiritual truths, so that we may live for Him. An easy to comprehend Bible Study. Through the author’s own life happenings and struggles, she blends them with scripture and questions, and then takes us on a wonderful journey to become a Christ-reflecting Christian, one who seeks to live for Him. I love that! 


My problem with alot of Bible studies is that I don’t understand them, or they are big word talk. But, with Reflecting Him, Carla broke it down simply and easily, making this one that I give 2 thumbs up to, and 4 star recommendation to all those looking for an awesome new, up-lifting Bible study to live for Him!
