Thinking Through the Bible

Thanks for visiting. Please adjust your zoom to %150. The layout reads much better that way. Otherwise, it may have too academic a feel( which I’m trying to avoid). I want this blog to touch the heart as well as the mind. I want to restart you thinking about biblical principles and how they apply to your everyday life and your devotional life. My purpose is to get you, women who embrace faith, into reading the Bible for yourself, and in the process, seeing that Jesus is the Savior, that salvation is entirely a gift of God, and that faith in the life, death, resurrection, and return of Jesus is your only hope for this life and the next.

Who am I to do that? I am Carol Brandt: mother, grandmother, wife, have raised five collies, and have taught a lot of Bible classes to children and women. Visit me on facebook: Carol Cook Brandt. Please send me any of your questions or comments via Facebook. Then the comments won’t take our focus away from thinking about the Bible onto ourselves. I am open to discussing things with you via Facebook. Just send me a message.

Have you read my book, Old Paths For Little Feet? You can order it at www.cvbbs.com. I hope to provide some teaching tips especially for parents, as well as show you how to think through Bible passages. Please scroll down categories on the side-bar for verse-by- verse lessons from Bible books. I hope you will use these lessons in your personal and small group studies. Feel free to print them out for group or teacher use, but please put my name and womenembracingfaith.wordpress.com on each copy. Galatians and Philippians are currently the most complete studies. Isaiah might work best for personal, rather than group, study. But, any category can quickly be printed in full.

I want to introduce you to others who have believed these same things. One category is Introductions.

Just some quick things a few times a week. Drop by often!

    Carol,

    I’m glad I came across your web site. I tried making a comment on your November 4 post, but that link seems dead. Nothing happens when it is clicked. Then, when I went to your “About” page, I saw an opportunity to submit a comment. You might have to make an adjustment in some of your preferences to enable comments on each post.

    Any way, I like what you are writing — common sense, down-to-earth gospel and comments on what God is telling us in His word. So many seem unable to realize God’s grace and intimate love in their personal lives. Hopefully, what you post will open their hearts and minds. Thank you for posting.

    Margaret

    Carol,

    I check in on your web site every once in awhile and enjoy what you share….. Today I enjoyed “Rahab’s Mystery”….. It is so wondrous how God works in our hearts….. It doesn’t matter who we are, God loves each and every one of us…

    One thing I thought of on your post about Rahab is that she is also mentioned in Matthew 1:5 — “and to Salmon was born Boaz by Rahab; and to Boaz was born Obed by Ruth, and to Obed, Jesse.”….. Both Rahab and Ruth were foreign women, who became included in the lineage of our Savior, Jesus Christ….. God certainly is no respecter of persons.

    Thank you for sharing. It still looks like a person can only comment by coming to your “About” page….. Maybe that’s the way you want it….. 🙂

    Margaret, Thanks for adding this important detail about Rehab. It just goes to show how God’s plan of salvation was there all along and how faithful he has been to bring it about.
