Reviews - What do customers think about Lady In Waiting (Expanded)?
Uncertain Jan 19, 2007
I liked this book becuase it showed me that you really need to wait on God's timing for everything. However, I felt like this book was TOOOO religous and I felt like it tried to make me feel guilty for not trying to study the bible intensively. I am a Christian but I am not very religous. I felt like there was too much biblical refrence rather than actual guidance.
I die to myself Nov 9, 2006
As a little girl many of us were brought up watching Disney Princess movies ... we tend to believe that one day of "Prince Charming" is going to sweep us off our feet and take us to our "Happily Ever After" ... however as a daughter of the King of Kings ... there is a void in our hearts that is longing for true inconditional love ... and only God can fill that. In Lady in Waiting you learn the Secret behind the Alabaster Box ... if you want that relationship with your true heavinly prince this book will guide you ... its a must!
Be careful!! A very legalistic approach to the cross Jan 9, 2006
I was introduced to Lady in Waiting a few years back and I was intrigued by the idea of "reckless abandoning to Jesus" because it focused on ways a woman can become better and more appealing based on how she relates to God. However, under careful reading I noticed that the book is very legalistic in how women are to approach their relationship to God. The book falsely conveys Ruth as being rewarded and approved by God only for performing ideal tasks and behaviors. Lady in Waiting promotes a guilt-driven works oriented standard to live up to in order to gain God's acceptance and maybe His reward (i.e. a husband) if He chooses to. The book is just not biblical based because many of the scriptures taken from Ruth(the book from the Bible)are wrong, twisted or out of context to fit the authors own ideas and objectives. It also seems like the authors neglect to reveal how through relationships good or bad, God is still able to move. Also that even if we fulfill this formula by becoming... (Lady of Purity, Faith) we may still not be liked, desired, or acceptable to people even if we are them "perfectly". We can not make ourselves holy only God can that is the purpose of having a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Also they try to subtly endorse the notion that Jesus can replace a woman's natural desire to be with a man. This may work briefly, but in the long run if it was truly the case, go back to Genesis and see that God Himself when He was with Adam saw it's not good for man to be alone and that's why He created a helpmeet. God never promotes the idea of Him being our partner until someone comes along to "take His place". I think that idea is diluted and pathetic. We are to worship God in truth and spirit. Lastly, the book weakly carries out its points and overly spiritualize concepts to the point of confusion.
I am a lady in waiting... Jan 6, 2006
I read Lady in Waiting several years ago while still in my early teens. I have refered back to it many times since then trying to grow my relationship with the Lord while I wait on my future husband. I agree that our ultimate goal is to be satisfied completely with Christ and His cross, but that is something we as humans won't be able to completely attain until we are in Heaven with Christ. Strive for contentedness yes, and find your significance in Him, but it's ok to long for a husband. Don't dwell on it, but to deny and ignore the longings of your heart to me is almost like denying and ingnoring the One who placed them there in the first place.
In short, this is a great read and a great example of how to mold your life after the One who gave you life. Strive for holiness, but rely on the One who is holy to make you holy, and wait on His timing for your future husband, He will send him when you both are ready.
Has good points but ultimately faulty Nov 8, 2005
It's been awhile since I read "Lady in Waiting," so I'm going largely from memory here refreshed by other reviewers' comments. Nevertheless, I remember feeling unnecessarily guilt-tripped by this book, especially by the opening salvo of contrasting the heartbroken, lonely single woman with the content "lady in waiting," as if anyone who's ever had a crying jag after yet another friend's wedding is somehow spiritually inferior.
I'm exaggerating, but not much.
The authors do a noble job of trying to steer women away from desperate, anxious, "where is he?" behavior, but in doing so they put way too much emphasis on the believer herself and not enough on the Cross.
How can I say that about a book that proposes to help you love God more than the idea of being married?
Yes, our ultimate fulfillment is in Christ and he should always be our first priority, married or unmarried, but that's a goal we never fully reach this side of heaven. It ultimately produces pride in the married person and guilt in the single person to suggest that ONLY after you've satisfied yourself fully with Christ will God see fit to bring you a mate.
Sorry ... that's not Biblical nor is it possible. Better advice is to continually look to the Cross for mercy in all our shortcomings while having confidence in a gracious God who supplies all our needs despite our sinfulness.
