What do the Ten Commandments do for you? Do they send you on a guilt trip? Are they a mirror of your frailties? Or do they hold life-changing love? The miracle of the Commandments is that even after thousands of years, they still hold everything we need to live in relationship with God and with one another.

The forty short chapters in Love Rules are shards of real, gritty life. In this women's Bible study, you will see yourself and how pride, insecurity, grudges, and coveting damage relationships. Each narrative also shows exactly why we still need Jesus and His perfect, Commandment-keeping love.

Love Rules tells the story of spiritual transformation, shows how God wants us to love better, and helps us see how we can. This Bible study addresses one commandment each week, then follows up with four devotions that approach the topic from different angles. The readings takes a “what does this mean” approach by asking open-ended questions and providing related Bible readings.

For individual and group study, each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion.

Engaging look at the 10 Commandments

This Bible study is a very engaging, eye-opening look at the 10 Commandments. I appreciated how Christina drew parallels between the Old and New Testament teachings on the Commandments, and the stories she told helped me think about the role of the Commandments in my own life. There is a good balance of Law and Gospel, although I felt like a few of the sessions didn’t really shine the Gospel light as clearly as I needed. The discussion questions tend to be very personal, which was excellent for individual reflection, but can make it challenging to discuss in a group of acquaintances.

Wonderful Study

I have read this book on my own, but it would lend even better to a women’s bible study. I found myself underlining and sharing parts with others, while nodding my head in agreement with the ways in which we stray and God is good. A good study to do on the spot as well, if you don’t have a lot of time for study preparations. Short stories to draw you in and good questions with Biblical references to draw you to God’s grace.

Refreshing and encouraging

This is an excellent look at the Ten Commandments and what they mean for 21st-century believers in everyday life. Christina has an enjoyable conversational style of writing. She relates personal stories with vulnerability and honesty. I was convicted as to ways I break the Ten Commandments, but her overarching theme is one of God’s grace and love shown to us through His Law and His Gospel. Her chapters about the Ninth Commandment are particularly strong and resonated deeply with me. Definitely a book worth reading again and again.
