Item description for Infertility in the Bible: How The Matriarchs Changed Their Fate by Jessie Fischbein...
What does an infertile woman experience as she sees a woman pushing a stroller?
According to the Torah (The Old Testament), three of the Matriarchs; Sarah, Rebecca and Rachel suffered from infertility but eventually gave birth to the founders of the Jewish People. In Infertility in the Bible author Jessie Fischbein looks at the struggle of important Biblical women to overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacle of infertility, and their success in finally having children. Fischbein examines the efforts of these Biblical figures through prayer and deed. Using their experiences as a starting point, Fischbein discusses her own battle with infertility and how others may benefit from her experience.
To help others find their way through this difficult experience, Fischbein focuses on:
* Divine Intervention: the key to understanding yourself and your place in God's plan. How to work on yourself and perhaps alter your "fate".
* Prayer: why it sometimes works and other times does not work and how to re-mold its force within you.
* Leah and Rachel: How their sibling rivalry impacted on their ability to have children, and why focusing your emotions is a hidden tool for change.
* Hannah: How the prayers and actions of Samuel's mother helped her conceive.
* Important insights on the husband-wife relationship when infertility becomes an issue, and how to better understand the sensitivities of a woman who has trouble conceiving.

The Bible relates to us Dec 7, 2005
Often when hearing the bible stories we think of the characters as far off, distant, and hard to identify with. This book closes the gap. It explains how we can relate to the matriarchs, how we can get a glimpse of what they went through and what we can learn from them in a practical way. I would definately recomend it.
A Very Powerful and Moving Book Dec 6, 2005
I think the book has something for everyone, not just those that can't conceive, in that it has advice on how to deal with any disappointment in life. I found it a very powerful and moving book.
I loved it! Dec 2, 2005
The tone of this book is at once incredibly honest and deeply warm and empathetic; it feels like having a conversation about a painful subject with a friend who really wants to help you find some clarity. The tone is chatty, peppered with jokes and anecdotes to ease you through difficult subjects. The ideas and various points really stay with you, following you as you move back out into the world after reading it. Her analysis of various Biblical figures is interesting and novel, and opens up the area further. I personally found this book incredibly useful in beginning to approach all of the complicated emotions that are aroused by infertility. I think, as a side point, its worth reading even if you don't share a particular Biblical orientation with the author. I have never read a book quite like this one on the subject.
