Best Bible Study Books for Women

As busy women, it’s hard to find time to read the Bible, not even to mention time to study it. The demands placed on us can be daunting, not permitting even one second for ourselves. Still, God desires to fellowship with us through His Word. If we just need that extra help to study His Word, a Bible study book for women is an excellent option.

Imagine spending a few quiet moments with God in the morning before duty calls. For a Bible study to be successful, intentionality and consistency are the keys. We need to choose a plan and stick to it. Without a plan, Bible study is most likely not going to happen.

Many Christian female authors recognized the need for help in studying the Bible. Often based on their own experiences, they wrote women’s Bible study books containing attainable plans. To give busy women like us a manageable and achievable plan to read through the Bible.

Some books focus on a specific Bible book, others on themes or parts of the Bile. And others guide you through the bible in a year. We get transformed through God’s Word. Wouldn’t it be awesome to read the full Bible in one year?

“Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”

Joshua 1:8 (NLT)

How do I Choose a Women’s Bible Study?

God’s Word is a lamp to our feet and light to our path (Psalm 119:105). This means we should know His Word first, otherwise it can’t illuminate our path. What is the best way to do that? Women’s Bible study group or individual Bible study?

We can get to know the Word of God by Bible study by ourselves, and asking the Holy Spirit to guide us while we read. We can hear from God by taking time to study His Word. This is perfect to do in our quiet time with God at home. But also during our lunch break at the office, on a busy day. As long as we study His Word, it doesn’t really matter where or when we do it. However, consistency is the key.

Another way is joining a small or larger group of women to read through God’s Word together. This is a perfect way to share insights, learn from each other, and pray together. We can gather in person or, for example, online.

So, what is a quality choice in women’s Bible study? Well, there is not one answer. It depends on your personal preferences, your available time, and, of course, your location. I would say, pray and ask God to help you choose.

You can always change the mode of study at a later point in time.

7 Best Women’s Bible Study Books

Here is my personal list of the seven best women’s Bible study books, Anno 2022, in no particular order. I do not get paid to showcase any of these books.

Each book is perfect to use during self study or in a women’s Bible study group.

(1) Sweeter Than Honey

Sweeter Than Honey is a 365-day devotional journey centered on Psalm 119:103. “How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” This devotional is unlike any devotional I’ve ever read. It’s a book written to help you find peace in the chaos and strength for your weakest moments as it encourages you in your daily walk with God.

These 365 devotions will lead you gently through God’s Word in chronological order of book authorship, and when you read the accompanying passage for each day, you will have read through the entire Bible!

“You’ll find encouragement on every page of this book—encouragement to seek God above all else. The strong, spiritual emphasis will challenge you to turn to God for daily direction and experience His presence in a whole new and intentional way. Sweeter Than Honey will become more to you than just another daily devotional, it will become a keepsake as you record prayers and take part in thought-provoking, practical exercises that touch every aspect of your life and draw you closer to our Creator.”—from the Prologue.

And if you want to journey through God’s Word and Sweeter Than Honey with a group of like-minded, Christian friends, you can join the ‘Sweeter Than Honey’ Facebook group.

(6) She Loves Truth

She Loves Truth is a 10-week study of the book of Proverbs.

​We love truth, don’t we? We yearn for it, and need it. We want to know what the Bible says about truth. We long for the truth of God’s Word to permeate our everyday lives so that we never question, even on the bad days.

How do you know whom to listen to or what advice to take when you have an important decision to make? With the Internet, we have access to an overwhelming amount of information. Well-meaning people tell us many things. It’s up to us to discern the difference between the two. We want wisdom and knowledge, we want to be women of understanding, and we hunger for truth.

We can’t believe everything we hear or read. Instead, we should take our time and work through decisions with prayer. We don’t have to decide based on other people’s opinions. After all, what God has to say on the subject matters the most. We must be prudent and seek the truth.

I know no other book of the Bible that says more about truth than Proverbs.

She loves Truth is a 50-page, full-color, self-guided (or group-guided) Bible study, leading you on a journey through the book of Proverbs. The plan is brilliant for new believers and for those established in the faith as well.
