The Good Portion is a series written specifically for women to immerse themselves in the depths of Christian doctrine. God created us to enjoy knowing Him – there is always so much more to be discovered and enjoyed!
The Bible speaks about itself in evocative language – a light to the path, a balm to the flesh, sweeter than honey. It is more than a formula – it is the heartbeat of a Christian. This first title in The Good Portion series addresses the nature of the Scriptures as God’s revelation and discusses the characteristics of the Bible.
Keri Folmar is the wife of John Folmar (pastor of the United Christian Church of Dubai) and the mother of three engaging teenagers. She loves teaching women’s Bible studies and has written three herself: Joy! on Philippians, Faith on James, and Grace on Ephesians. She has also contributed to Word–Filled Women’s Ministry and the ESV Women’s Devotional Bible.
The Good Portion: Scripture reminded me of the great value of God's Word for all of life, even in the most mundane moments of my days. If you love God's Word, or want to grow in your understanding of God's Word, this book is for you.
Author of ‘Teach Me to Feel: Worshipping Through the Psalms in Every Season of Life’
