Women today, whether single or married are seeking fulfillment, identity and significance, yet the subtle pressures of our world's system are causing increasing frustration. New and far-reaching challenges are being encountered by women as never before, forcing them to re-examine and re-evaluate their priorities. The extreme pressures from a social and economical standpoint are bombarding women at every turn. With the ever-increasing divorce rate that predominates our society, the "fractured family" syndrome is also more rampant. This book will enable the reader to understand the Biblical role for women, the challenges they face today, as well as considering significant identifiable characteristics of godly women who have been role model examples throughout history. It will also present recommendations to promote a healthier approach to cope with these pressures, proposing some practical suggestions for a victorious and dynamic Christian life. Ida M.
