Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5A book for every lady to read, pass on, and use for mentoringJanuary 7, 2018Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I remember longing to be married and wondered if it would ever happen. It seemed like a far-off dream and I was tempted to just settle for any man. I thought that I'd never meet someone once I graduated from college so the closer I neared to graduation, the more pressure I felt. Now I obviously know God would have brought him along in his timing, but I wish this book had been there for me to read while I was in the waiting period.
Deepak Reju has written a book that single ladies and teens need to read. I mean even read it several times over your life. And married women? They need to read it too! Sometimes it's easy to forget that whole stage and those feelings that come along and this book reminded me of that time. It would also be a fantastic book to go through if you're mentoring younger women. You can easily tell through his writing that Deepak Reju has such a heart for these ladies and longs to protect their hearts. Hee doesn't want them to settle for just anyone but to wait on God's man. I absolutely love that this is written from a man to women. I think it gives women a different perspective.
I tend to be very picky in the nonfiction books I read because I don't want them to water down the Gospel or be about prosperity or any other type of non-biblical teaching. So I rely on the reviews and recommendations of the people on the back on of the cover and within the front page of the book. So I knew I had to get this book after I saw who all had read and recommended this book: Gloria Furman, Joni Eareckson Tada, David and Sally Michael, Mary K. Mohler, Elyse Fitzpatrick, and Martha Peace. There were more but I knew these ladies were Gospel-centered and wouldn't put their names on just any book!
Inside, Reju talks about how smart women settle, why they settle, and how to live differently. In Part 2, he gives characteristics of men that might be the wrong guy. He talks about the control freak, the promiscuous guy, the unchurched guy, the new convert, the unbeliever, the angry man, the lone ranger, the commitment-phobic man, the passive man, and the unteachable guy. Part 3 addresses breaking up for the glory of God and then pursuing a real Christian man. He talks about why waiting is okay and how God helps in the waiting and loneliness by giving us just enough grace for the moments that we need. One of my favorite sections was actually the conclusion as he pours out his heart and lovingly tells women to not compromise. You see his love for these ladies seeping through the pages.
I received this book free from New Growth Press and Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Wise counsel for womenNovember 6, 2017bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is a good book for Christian women who are dating or thinking about it. Women are under such pressure today that they often settle for the wrong man. Through examples of couples and teaching from the Bible, Reju explains how mistakes can be made in pursuing a husband and what women should be looking for in a man.
The bottom line of Reju's book is that we are to desire Jesus more than anything or anyone else. Marriage is only for this life, Reju reminds us, but our relationship with Jesus is for eternity. No thing nor person can satisfy our deepest need - only Jesus.
Reju looks at many of the "wrong" guys. He cautions women to avoid the control freak, the Christian in name only, the immature Christian, the angry man, and more. He really had good insights into these characters. I particularly like his chapter on the angry man. Anyone struggling with anger would benefit from the teaching contained within.
Reju also reminds readers of the role of the church in supporting singles and those dating. Young people frequently need wise counsel and I do not see the church fulfilling that role.
I recommend this book to single women and those desiring to help them through wise counsel. You'll be challenged to determine the condition of your heart and to whom you are looking for your happiness.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through Litfuse. My comments are an independent and honest review.
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5She's got the wrong guyOctober 28, 2017Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5SHE'S GOT THE WRONG GUY is a book I was iffy about. Do I want to review it? No, yes, maybe, nah, not relevant to me... And then my daughter started um, sort of dating the wrong guy. And when another call out came to review the book, I thought, okay, yes, I'll read it and give it to my daughter to read.
SHE'S GOT THE WRONG GUY is a book about women Deepak Reju has counseled and why they choose the wrong guy. It also has plenty of biblical reasons why the men they chose were bad choices and what the Bible has to say about such a thing. It left me beginning to feel as if there are no perfect men out there (and there's not) but toward the end it does leave encouragement and some guidelines of things to look for in a potential mate.
I've been married thirty years and I think Deepak Reju would've told Steve and me to wait to begin dating. Why? Because Steve was a new Christian. He'd come to Christ four months before I met him and we were married four months after that. But that said, upon being saved Steve immediately felt the call to go into ministry and he dived head-on into that goal. Literally. So he was doing a lot of Bible study, growing as a Christian, and that (according to the encouragement part of Deepak Reju's book) is a good thing. Steve is far from perfect, but then neither am I. We're both human. Both totally sold out to God, but still human.
I think this is a great book for young single women to read and I think it even would be good for my son to read as the woman he's dating is a brand-spanking new Christian. In fact, he led her to Christ less than a month ago. But this book is geared toward women and their choices and my son wouldn't relate.
I am going to give my copy to my daughter as the guy she's kind of sort of dating has major anger issues. And I'll pray she takes the advice, Scripture, and wisdom in the book to heart, learn from it, and at least take the time to pray about her decisions and maybe wait for the guy God has waiting in the wings.
Recommended for single women everywhere--in a relationship or not.
I was given a copy of the book free. All opinions are my own.
