Item description for Chosen Vessels: Women of Color, Keys to Change by Rebecca F. Osaigbovo & John M. Perkins...
Overview Women of color have historically been on the bottom of the economic and social ladder. But the paradox of the kingdom of God is that being on the bottom is a plus. God often chooses the rejected and despised to confound the wise and mighty (1 Corinthians 1:27-29). But examining our spiritual history and God-ordained destiny, this book is designed to help us turn the tide of evil in our own lives and in the lives of our families, cities and nations. We are chosen vessels. This book will help us each to find our significance in the eyes of God. This revised edition includes new Bible studies to accompany each chapter.
Publishers Description "African American woman." The phrase conjures up a variety of images: Sassy career women. Wise church women. Strong grandmothers. Welfare mothers. But how about "chosen vessels"? Or "keys to change"? Perhaps we need some new images. Women of color have historically been on the bottom of the economic and social ladder. But the paradox of the kingdom of God is that being on the bottom is a plus. God often chooses the rejected and despised to confound the wise and mighty (1 Corinthians 1:27-29). By examining our spiritual history and God-ordained destiny, Rebecca Florence Osaigbovo helps us turn the tide of evil in our own lives and the lives of our families, cities and nations. We are chosen vessels. Here is the help we need to find--and live--our significance in the eyes of God.

What a blessing! Apr 9, 2003
This book makes us look within ourselves to find the God that lives within us as well as helps us seek deliverance from things that hinder God's plan for our lives. Such an annointed book! This guide helps us to seek the holy spirit as our guide daily in all areas of our complex and sometimes stressful lives. Talk about spiritual growth and maturity - it's ours if we choose it! This books shows the map and gives directions on how we get there. I highly recommend it to both young and old women of every race and walk of life!
SPIRITUALLY SOUND!!! Sep 7, 2001
This book is the only one of it's kind. It is a spiritual bible, in a sense, for women of color. Buy this book, my sisters! You won't be disappointed! You will be enlightened like never before! It answers many unanswered questions.
This book is faith-building and life-changing! May 11, 2000
This book will truly change your life if you consistently apply the principles taught. The author is empathetic, clear, and inspired. She tells you exactly what you need to do in order to experience the peace and purpose of God in your home, work, and life in general. Read this book more than once, and be prepared for a challenge. Some of her words are hard to take, but they're true and Bible-based.
Enough praise cannot be given! May 4, 2000
The teachings in this book is so touching and timely for African American women who seek to allow Christ to live through them and to make a better world for themselves, family, friends, church and the world. Every person of African descent should read this awesome book filled with holy scriptures to guide the reader. My profound thanks to the author!
Our roadmap to save our world Dec 22, 1999
If you're serious about making a difference in the world and in YOUR own world, this book is for you. God has laid out a plan of attack for us to take back what the devil stole. Rebecca O. does a great job of teaching, inspiring and challenging all of us to go to the next level and really live an abundant life filled with prayer, hope, love and peace. God ordained and I recommend this book to all women of color and others too! There are scriptures in the back for daily reading...I love it. It changed my life!
