This book answers all the questions you might have for God (plus ones you might never have thought to ask). It is broken down into small sections with questions about God, Jesus, The Bible, Life, Prayer, Relationships, and Good and Evil. Within those sections, there are seven + questions and the answers. This is in a conversational style and speaks to you as if God, Jesus or someone else from the Bible were answering the question for you. The section on prayer was very helpful to me. Sometimes I feel as if I hound God constantly and that He gets sick of me for praying so much. This book helped me to get over that feeling.
As I read it, I thought about how great this book would be for a new Christian who may feel like she doesn’t know enough about God and who may shy away from conversations with others in an effort to avoid feeling ignorant. This book would also be a great gift for someone who is experiencing a period of doubt or even depression. It makes you feel equipped to answer questions that others may ask about God. Marcia Ford definitely did her research when writing this book!
Book Description: A front row seat to a fascinating conversation with God, Jesus, and other biblical characters answering important questions women have regarding life and faith.
A Conversation with God for Women allows readers a one-on-one dialogue with God, Jesus, and other important biblical characters as they respond to questions and concerns relevant to the Christian faith. The often challenging questions address issues and tensions specifically felt by women. Each answer, designed for both believers and seekers, is based on Scripture and written with the warmth and intimacy of a Heavenly Father relating to His child.
Categories and sample questions include:
*God, why don’t You just reveal Yourself? *Jesus, why was a virgin birth necessary? *The Bible, what can it teach women? *Life, what about women in ministry? *Prayer, can it really make a difference? *Relationships, how can we trust after betrayal? *Good and evil, how can they coexist?
