    I purchased this study for a group of women in my church. I have just finished chapter 1 and the first week of video and so far, it's very good.

    I like Carol Kent and I like what she sets out to do with this book. She saw the need among women for godly mentors and she set out to do something about it. Not many do that. For this I applaud her for taking the time out of her life to create a resource for those of us who wish to be a godly influence in other women's lives. All isn't perfect, however. While I find this book to be valuable, it isn't as good as it could be if she had been more intent on being God-focused rather than woman-focused. Because of that, while there is much to like about this book there is also much to be wary of.

    First the positive: Carol has a desire to get women active in other women's lives. She covers subjects that will be of benefit to many women. She's motivating. She's enthusiastic. She rallies the troops. She gives us reasons to want to become a woman of influence and makes us want to prepare to mentor other ladies and since that is in a nutshell the point of the book, she succeeds quite admirably.

    Now for the downside: This book isn't theologically deep. Carol uses a very modern Bible translation that isn't a word-for-word translation so sometimes the Biblical message isn't as clear as it needs to be. Also she references people that aren't known for being strictly straight and true to the traditional conservative Christian message. It is very modern in it's emphasis on what women can do (and ought to do). Carol doesn't get the message across that our lives must be lived to God's glory and by His power and according to His rules and truth. For these reasons, I cannot wholeheartedly recommend it.

    To wrap up: this is a book that will encourage women in our roles as guides and mentors to other women but it fails to give us the biblical tools needed to carry out these roles as well as we should. It is more modern than traditional, more cultural than biblical, more woman-centered than God-centered. Read it a conservative Bible translation handy and along with it, read some other, more conservative, Christian books written for women who are seeking to learn how to mentor and guide other women.

    Solid Principles, Awkward Elements

    These seven principles for mentoring women (especially newer Christians and seekers) are time-tested and solid, vividly illustrated, and well-grounded in Scripture.

    This edition had two drawbacks for me, neither of which would prevent me from recommending the book: the study guides, and the presentation of Scripture.

    I found the accompanying study guides a bit too long and fragmented. I became impatient with what felt like a "jumpy" experience" through too many Scriptures and exercises.

    I also found the Scripture presentation felt a bit awkward. She often paraphrased long portions (for copyright reasons?), but not creatively, or even briefly -- she appeared to describe almost every line of the Scripture, which came to feel a bit tedious. For quoted Scripture, she primarily used the Petersen paraphrase, The Message (a creative meditation on the original texts). I believe The Message as a teaching tool is best used in concert with proper translations of the text, not as a substitute for them.

    That said, the seven well-founded principles made it a worthwhile read for any woman looking for thoughtful primer for serving as a spiritually healthy mentor to women, and I would recommend it as such.

    One thing I can never say about Carol Kent is that she is boring - for she never is!

    This book reveals deep insights concerning women growing into influential positions, and embracing women like these into our lives. She highlights main points that point directly to scripture, revealing that these insights truly did not come from herself - but from direction of her relationship with God.

    Though it took me a couple of months to read the book (I just so happen to slowly digest good books like this), when I found myself reading the book, I discovered I had a hard time putting it down (but when my eyes are starting to close due to just be over tired, I do what I have to do).

    Carol's style, grace, compassion and mercy flow through this book as the personal mentor she encourages all women to find in their own lives.

    The companion 9-week study guide is excellent - and it prompts you to journal rather than fill in the blanks; which I find to be deeply helpful in learning and growth.

    If you don't have a personal mentor in your life, please embrace this book until one enters into your life.
