Item description for Feminine Appeal (New Expanded Edition with Questions) by Carolyn Mahaney & Nancy Leigh DeMoss...
Overview Laying a foundation of sound doctrine, Mahaney teaches women the specifics of practical living that glorifies God. She joyfully explores home as a place to minister, to enjoy, and to manage, plus helps women cultivate their roles as wives, mothers, and mentors. Her personal anecdotes and illustrations from the lives of others add warmth and humor to this book.
Carolyn Mahaney identifies with the challenges facing women in today’s world and meets them with the guidance of God’s Word. The feminine virtues described in Titus 2 have transformed her life and the lives of countless other women. This book will show you the appeal of being a woman who lives for God and helps others do the same.
“Carolyn’s warm, practical, biblical, God-centered approach offers the mature mentoring that women of every age yearn for at times. For some, Feminine Appeal may be an excellent stand-in for the mentor they lack right now. For others, it will wonderfully complement the relationship they have with an older friend of the Titus 2 sort.” — John and Nol Piper, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis
“We love this book! It's a godsend for both wives and their husbands. It gives women a clear vision of biblical femininity and shows men what to encourage their wives towards. Carolyn has been a friend and mentor to Shannon, and we're thrilled that through these pages she provides women of all ages the same honest, convicting, and hope-filled guidance.” —Joshua and Shannon Harris, author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye
“We’ll give this book our ultimate endorsement—we have given it to all our married daughters! Carolyn offers the kind of godly, seasoned counsel that is desperately needed by women today. She is practical, authentic, and biblically based. This book ought to be required reading for every woman—married or single!” —Dennis and Barbara Rainey, Founders, FamilyLife Today
“Feminine Appeal has had a huge impact on the women of our church. Carolyn writes with a wonderful blend of soundness, encouragement, humility, and practicality that makes this book one of the best on the market for women desiring to please God in these most basic and crucial of life callings. Feminine Appeal has been the single most valuable book on Titus 2 living for women that I (Connie) have ever read.” —Mark and Connie Dever, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

Reviews - What do customers think about Feminine Appeal (Expanded)?
Excellent Book Oct 24, 2008
I haven't finished reading it yet, but it's an excellent book. It arrived in perfect condition in a timely manner.
Great Biblical instruction for a select group Oct 19, 2008
The book is an easy, pleasant read with wonderful Biblical instruction. However, if you do not fit specifically into the category of woman that this book is geared toward, you may not see the whole point of it. The book doesn't fully allow for the fact that God created human kind to serve Him in ALL that we do, i.e., the book focuses on how women can best serve God by working at home. And that's okay, you just need to know that before reading it.
I purchased copies for friends in my Bible Study at church and they too enjoyed it to some degree. Overall, I would recommend this read to garner a different perspective from the world around us.
Great book Oct 6, 2008
Excellent book for our stay at home mother's Bible Study ...I am learning so much and was happy with shipping and condition upon arrival.
Practical wisdom from Scripture Aug 31, 2008
This book was very helpful at fleshing out Titus 2. The only thing I regretted was that it wasn't longer! It was very practical and my husband even noticed positive changes in our marriage. Highly recommended. Would make a great gift for a bride-to-be...I sure wish I had read it before I was married - it would have gotten me on a good start from the beginning.
Biblical, inspiring, and fun to read! Jul 26, 2008
After reading quite a few books on biblical femininity, Feminine Appeal is the best I have ever encountered. Mahaney faithfully explained what real Godly womanhood is and supported every major point with multiple, soundly-interpreted Words of God. As opposed to some other books that incorporates the cultural image of housewives, Mahaney actually focused on the Truth, and not on her own convictions. I highly recommend this book for women who wishes to grow in Godliness.
