Modern-day feminism and the decline of solid Bible teaching in churches have left many women confused or unaware of God s high calling for their lives. Though the world changes, God s priorities have not. In Titus 2:3-5, the apostle Paul reveals the value God places upon a woman s character, her relationships, and her home. In God s Priorities for Today s Woman, popular Bible teacher Lisa Hughes explains and illustrates each priority that Paul describes, empowering Christian women to
- grow in their understanding of God and of what He considers important
- gain assurance they are living the life God desires them to live
- be equipped to grow in each priority area
- learn how to minister more effectively to other women
God s Priorities for Today s Woman will equip women of all ages to grow in godly living. Study questions effective for individual or small group use are included at the end of each chapter.
Using Titus 2 as her foundation, Hughes touches upon the good behavior listed for women in verses 3-5, giving each behavior its own chapter in order to allow the reader to concentrate easily on one concept at a time. Within each chapter are personal stories from Hughes's own life and the lives of women she knows, as well as explanations of and biblical cross references to each virtue she writes about. At the end of each chapter are questions for the reader to ask herself to see if she's fallen into the trap of not behaving appropriately.
As a teacher for woman's Bible studies for more than twenty years, Hughes has become a recognized speaker at women's retreats and conferences. It is through these experiences that she has gained the knowledge to write a book such as God's Priorities for Todays Woman. She writes, "I remember as a young believer fearing that somehow I would miss knowing Gods will for my life," (p. 7) so she has made it her mission to help women not miss the Lords calling.
This book is biblically based in its lessons and has appropriate examples and direct Bible quotes. However, there isnt anything that makes it distinctly different from other books about how to be a godly woman. The quoted verses are familiar to women of faith, the lessons are a bit rehashed from standard talks given at women's retreats, and the questions are quite predictable. Although not groundbreaking for those who have grown up in the church, God's Priorities for Today's Woman would be a good foundational text for new believers. Demelza N.
