An Intense Look Jun 14, 2006
When I first read this book, I was at college with a group of women who loved discussing our faith and spirituality. This summer, I have read it again. And both times have been excellent.
Each chapter is structured, beginning with a thought to consider, followed by a personal story from the author's life. Then, Davis relates her real-life episode to the tale of a woman in Scripture. Each chapter concludes with several thought-provoking questions. This works wells for groups, as it guides the discussion. But I also find myself thinking about the answers to her questions from my life, from my life stories, and how I relate to the biblical women.
Easy to follow, and full of poetic diction, I found that this book was not only telling the author's story, but giving the reader the chance to chart and reflect on the way their spiritual self has been woven, torn, and repaired, creating an individual tapestry. I recommend this book to any woman!
Strength, Voice, Feminine Soul Apr 8, 2006
With beauty and grace, Janet Davis illuminates the concept of the Feminine Soul. She unveils the gentle, but relentless, love of God for women as revealed through scripture narratives. In addition to her refreshing perspectives on Biblical women, Davis challenges today's women to examine our own lives in light of our calling as cherished daughters of God, encouraging us to embrace our own strength, our own voice, our own Feminine Soul.
