Enduring Faith: An 8-Week Devotional Study of the Book of Hebrews by Nivine Richie 

Our guest blogger is Nivine Richie. Nivine is a women’s Bible study teacher in Wilmington, N.C., where she lives with her husband and two teenage children. A university finance professor, she is actively involved in the Christian faculty association on campus. She’s participated in and taught countless small group studies over the years, and is eager to see women grow in their faith. She loves libraries, museums, and outdoor cafes.

What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?

I was born in Cairo, Egypt a few months before the Six Day War, and my parents and I immigrated to the U.S. when I was 2 years old.

I’ve had the privilege of having traveled all over the world, and I’ve learned a lot from the different people I have met over the years. I’ve discovered that though we may all come from different cultures, languages, and practices, we have a lot in common. People in every corner of the globe struggle with the same issues: family, health, finances. Our differences may be obvious, as in the case of foreign languages, but in many, less obvious, ways we’re the same.

If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus), who would it be? Why?

Deborah in the Old Testament. Like me, she was a professional woman in a man’s world. She was in a position of leadership, and she seemed to handle it with dignity and wisdom. I could learn a lot from her experience.

Please tell us about Enduring Faith: An 8-Week Devotional Study of the Book of Hebrews.

This eight-week Bible study delivers a balance of in-depth study and manageable homework. Written in a devotional style with real-life examples to connect you with the lessons in Hebrews, each day’s study is paired with discussion questions and space for journaling. This book can be used for small-group or for personal Bible study.

What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading this book?

Is your faith on a firm foundation or are you standing on shaky ground? By the end of this study, you can know the kind of faith that pleases God.

Please tell our readers where they can get your book.

Any parting comment?

I would love the opportunity to help you launch a small group study of your own by offering a training seminar for teachers at your church or by speaking at your next women’s retreat. Please feel free to contact me if I can encourage you in this way.
