Just like us, the women of New Testament times were ambitious, worried, broken, lonely, insecure, and unfulfilled. Discover the powerful stories of their encounters with the perfect, unconditional love of the Savior. Rather than trivializing their problems or ignoring women, Jesus responded to their deepest needs with compassion, reminding them of their value and transforming their past, present, and future. Let this engaging book introduce you to the man who loves women like no other.
This book came at the perfect time, and I have been immensely enjoying it!
It goes through several different women — the woman from Samaria, at the well, Tabitha, the girl who Jesus brought to life, to name a few. The insights given into each character, based on the history surrounding the times, are insightful and I have been enjoying reading through it.
That being said, not everything in the book is theological. There are plenty of stories in there, and several times the author is simply musing about a persons life. I don’t necessarily agree with every single Bible translation in there, either. However, the lessons of trust and faith and hope and compassion are clearly stated and beautifully delivered, and it is definitely a book I would read again!
A three star read, for sure!
*I received this book from the publishing company in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to enjoy this book, simply to give my honest opinion.*
I am a 23 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.
