"I believe this book will be a tremendous blessing and source of inspiration for all who read it."
" Chosen Vessels gripped my heart like no other book. Rebecca Osaigbovo has tackled a topic most of us like to overlook, disregard or make invisible. . . . This book brings women face to face with commonsense, biblical answers for breaking free from cultural, racial and religious bondage. While Chosen Vessels is targeted to women of color, every Christian woman should read this book. Rebecca challenges all of us to embrace the fact that we are a chosen vessel so we can be free to become the woman God wants us to be."

What was your motivation behind this project? Initially, I was motivated to write Chosen Vessels, Women of Color, keys to change out of obedience to God. From camp counselor, Awana Club leader, book seller, a little speaking and writing, and more, I had been involved in Christian service since I was a teen. But I had never thought of myself as a writer. So when God spoke to me at three O' clock in the morning on December 15, 1989 through Jeremiah 30:2 to write a book, I wasn't quite sure what He had in mind. However, with much prayer and leaning on Him, I self-published the book about three years later. I sold out of the first print run of three thousand in less than six months. The book eventually sold over 62,000 copies over the next ten years. Over and over we heard, "This is a book every black woman should read." In order to be freed up to write and to help expose Chosen Vessels to more women, we sought to partner with a Christian publisher. InterVarsity decided to re-publish a revised edition of Chosen Vessels in 2002.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? It is my desire to help African American women see that God has chosen them for a critical role in his body in the days that we are living. This is a role that no one else can play. It is because of the critical role that we have suffered so much rejection and pain. Our real enemy has tried to keep us from knowing our place. But what our enemy has meant for evil, God is able to use for good. I hope women will lay aside the weights that easily beset us, come to God for healing and restoration, and be all God desires us to be in His army!
