A Woman God Can Use Jan 9, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. It was very insightful on the Women of The Bible. Sometimes when you read certain stories you miss things. One of the stories was about Abigal & Leah and the difficulties that they had in their marriage. Alice Matthews pointed out how Leah turned from wanting the love of her husband to wanting and appreciating the love of God. Abigail was married to Nabal who was a very unpleasant man to live with. She dealt with this situation with the grace that God gave her. I am not married but it showed me how to appreciate what I have instead of focusing on what I do not have.
I'm determined to be the woman God can use May 18, 2006
I have always loved reading the Old Testament and being fascinated with the stories of all the characters mentioned in the Bible. The book written by Alice Mathews with the emphasis on women in the Bible brought back fond memories when I first read about these characters many years ago. Only this time she distilled everything for me into bits that I could immediately relate to and with practical application - not just mere stories.
A very interesting bit that mustn't be missed is the Proverbs 31 woman (I used to feel 'overwhelmed' each time I read about her) - she is as normal as any woman like you and me, but what makes her special? You'll find out about her in this book.
God used these women mightily during their time despite their circumstances. The lives of these women: Ruth, Rahab, Hannah and many more (even Eve!), will inspire us to live boldly and purposefully for God. Whatever our circumstances are, whether in our normal daily living, or suffering from depression, or enduring abuse, etc., we are encouraged and will be strengthened just like these women of ancient times.
Timeless Biblical Principles Mar 5, 2004
This seemingly unassuming book has caused so much thought and personal growth in my life. I found I was able to connect with Ms Mathews words, her descriptions, explanations, and connections with absolute assurance that she was sharing Biblical truth.
I would recommend this book to any woman, of any age, who is looking to deepen her relationship with our Lord. Furthermore, the Old Testament seems to have gotten lost, almost forgotten, in our modern, Christian world....Alice brings it all back to us, and with such applicability.
