Item description for The True Woman: The Beauty and Strength of a Godly Woman by Susan Hunt...
Overview The daughter of an alcoholic, a woman struggling with infertility, a wife trying to cope with an unfaithful husband, a woman torn by vivid memories of an abortion, a sister trying to deal with the pains of a terminal illness--these are just some of the "true women" profiled in this book. Women whose lives are reflecting redemption in their time, place and circumstances. This book is a clarion call to women to think and act biblically.
"Striving to be a true woman of God? This book is a valuable guide." --Elisabeth Elliot
"This book goes to the center of all that it means to be a godly woman. Every American woman should have the opportunity to read it." --D. James Kennedy
Have you sensed God's call to change your world? Do you believe you can be one of those women who, by her virtue, wisdom, dignity, and faith, makes an impact in her home and community?
Maybe you've heard the call but weren't sure how to maximize the opportunities God has given you. Maybe society's definition of "true womanhood"--claiming it's about reproductive rights, doing things "your way," assuming the power, and gaining control of your life--has clouded your view of who you are in Christ. Or maybe you've just been waiting for a little encouragement and inspiration. In any case, author Susan Hunt says, "Start now." And let this book be your encourager and companion.
Through it you will hear how other Christian women are reflecting Christ despite difficult and sometimes tragic circumstances--and how you can reflect Him too. You'll explore what the Bible has to say about your mission and your identity as a true woman of God. You'll learn how to broaden your sphere of influence in the everyday. And you'll discover how to further develop a biblically shaped and Spirit-driven character that people are drawn to.
Begin today not only to draw closer to God, but also to deepen your impact in all you do. This exhortation to biblical womanhood will set your heart on fire and excite you about the unique opportunity you have as a woman of God. An opportunity to make an impact again and again for eternity.

Even Christian women will be shocked to realize just how much selfish feminist ideas have become a part of their thinking. This book guides women back to what the Bible has to say about the ideal woman.
