Elizabeth George, author of A Woman After God's Own Heart (more than 900,000 copies sold), invites women to get to
know the women of the Bible. Readers will be intrigued and inspired as they become friends with Eve, Deborah, Rachel, Leah, Naomi,
Mary, and many more. The devotions highlight how God reached out to these women and changed their lives. Readers will discover that He will
also help them successfully handle their own situations and grow in areas that include:
- devotion and service (Ruth and Naomi)
- courage and honor (Esther)
- motherhood and creativity (Jochebed)
- wisdom and leadership (Deborah)
- sacrifice and faithfulness (Hannah)
Walking with the Women of the Bible encourages women to cultivate a deep, intimate relationship with God and
turn to Him for strength, comfort, and help.
Formerly Women Who Loved God.
From the stories of well-known women to stories of those seldom noticed, the author helps the devotional reader dig deeper into the faith and motivations of women whose lives may parallel our own in challenges and expectations. Every state of a womans life is represented and enriched single, married, childless, mother, grandmother, widow leaving no reader without a challenge to her faith and spiritual growth. Of the 272 daily devotions, 210 are based on Old Testament passages, and more than 70 women are represented as those whose lives reflect both faith and the faithfulness of God.
The daily readings are not formulaic. There is refreshing variety in both format and message; themes include hospitality, love, leaving home, divorce, barrenness, artistry, parenting, giving, rescue, murder, worship and loyalty. Each reading is based on a specific Scripture verse quoted at the top of the page and ending with a paragraph of application for present day living.
The reader looking for straight Bible teaching to begin her day will find this book disappointing. Typical of most females when it comes to stories of other women, George is masterful at reading between the lines and digging into the desires and motivations represented by the actions of a woman in Scripture, even if the woman is only mentioned in a short sentence. She targets the heart issues that propelled the choices of women of the Bible; in doing so she also targets our own hearts and motivations.
Whether the stories are new or old to us, the situations and tests of faith they represent continue to repeatedly challenge modern women. This is a book with enough depth that it will be used often and passed around by friends. It would be an excellent tool for womens small groups or for mentoring. It is most appropriate for women college age or older. Highly recommended. Michelle Curtis, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
Sharon Taylor5 Stars Out Of 5February 2, 2009Sharon TaylorI just love reading about the Women of the Bible. I use this book each day and love reading about the feelings they might have had in their day, or the difficulties of their times and how they made it through with their faith and hope in Christ.!!! Oh, to be Mrs Noah!
