Item description for Practical Theology for Women: How Knowing God Makes a Difference in Our Daily Lives (Re: Lit Books) by Wendy Horger Alsup...

Overview
The author presents the power of theology while exhorting women to apply whatthey believe about God in the middle of life's daily battles.

Publishers Description

Have you ever wanted to understand the deep things of the Word but been put off by the intimidating vocabulary of theologians? Have you assumed that studying the attributes of God is for seminary students only? Or maybe "just for men"? Have heavy doctrinal themes felt beyond you and your everyday world? If so-if you've ever thought theology was too deep, too impractical, or too irrelevant for your life as a woman-this book is for you.

As author Wendy Alsup explores fundamental theological issues you've always wondered about-minus the daunting vocabulary and complex sentence structure of academic tomes-she brings them into real life... into your world... and reveals the heart of true theology. It's really about "simple yet incredibly profound stuff that affects our daily lives," she says. Stuff like faith and gaining a right knowledge of God as the foundation for wise daily living.

Alsup writes: "Truly, there is nothing like a good grasp of accurate knowledge about God to enable you to meet the practical demands of your life-the practical demands of being a daughter, mother, wife, sister, or friend." Let Practical Theology for Women show you the everyday difference that knowing God makes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Practical Theology for Women: How Knowing God Makes a Difference in Our Daily Lives (Re: Lit Books)?

Good Solid Book That Explains the Basics of the Gospel  May 26, 2010
Wendy Alsup's heart is to share solid theology and biblical commentary with women. This book reminded me of the book John Stott wrote about the basics of the Christian faith that pastors often quote.

This book covers the basics of theology, "which is the study of the nature of God". p. 23
In part one, Ms. Alsup talks about what faith is, and what it means to walk in faith. Then, she talks about who God is, which includes who Jesus and the Holy Spirit are. In the third part, she addresses how we communicate with God and what the Word is.

She covers the basics well. I was impressed that this is a book that is perfectly suited for a mentor to go through with a new Christian. Reading this book would remind older believers of what they know and help new Christian women understand what the Bible says and who God is. It would also be a good book for a Bible study which includes young Christians as well as women who have known the Lord for a long time, because younger believers wouldn't feel at a loss not understanding many of the words Christians use.

Here is an example of something that I thought was very well put in the chapter about the Holy Spirit:
"If a ministry talks more about the Holy Spirit than it does about Christ, it is probably not controlled by the Spirit of God. The Spirit is all about Christ rather than himself. The best way to figure out if a ministry is controlled by the Holy Spirit is to evaluate the clarity of its teaching and worship of Christ." p. 109

I have often longed for a book that I could recommend to new believers that wasn't fluffy or unbiblical. Too many books today are thinly veiled self help psychology books with a few encouraging Bible verses in them. I have also found many books that are simply unbiblical in what they say and take verses out of context.

I highly recommend this book if it sounds like what you are looking for.

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Crossway Books.
 
Should be labled beginner or introductory!  Mar 27, 2010
She has a great style of writing - accessible, practical, but wow - this is really really basic stuff. I am going to return it - it really should be labeled as an "intro" or "beginner". However - if you ARE looking for beginner or basics then this is a good book!

Knowing God is the Difference!  Mar 6, 2010
So many women I talk to feel stressed about their life. They don't know how to think about hurt, loneliness, fears and pressure. And the scariest of all is the overarching unsettling unknown called their future. Something powerful I've learned in my own life is that amidst all that is unknown, God can be known. And not just intellectual facts gathered about him, but in a deeply personal way. The living God knows me and cares for me. This is when "theology" (the study of God) is no longer a boring concept but something I crave everyday in my life because knowing him is the difference.

There are some great theology books out there but they are often written off because they are old and use big words and seem like textbooks for pastors. But this book, Practical Theology for Women is not like that at all. I am confident that even though it is only 152 pages it does not compromise on the quality of content in studying who God is. But at the same time, it is not so wordy and lofty that even a high school girl could not get totally into it!

"God is, and his existence alone puts the rest of life in perspective."

When I sat down to read this book for the first time I didn't necessarily feel far away from God but I knew I needed to deepen my understanding of him. But I had no idea how much this book was going to move me! The author writes:

"It is my deepest conviction that what God teaches about himself in his Word is of utmost importance to the issues of my personal daily life."

And that is exactly what this book is about. In each chapter she describes and explains qualities of who God is, taking us through the Bible to see what God has told us about himself. She then connects the dots from that big concept of our mighty God to the everyday situation you and I face and get frustrated about. The way she does this compelled me personally to put off sin in my life that I realized in reading this book was a result of misunderstanding or forgetting who God really is.

The more I understand how God does things and why he does them, the more ready I am to live all out for him! Some chapters in this book were so good; I seriously only read a paragraph a day because I had to chew on it. I couldn't just keep turning pages because some things she would point out really were important and I had not always treated them that way. Things like:

* How faith really works..."To say we have faith in him while living a life characterized by anxiety and worry is to deny him by our actions, if not our words."

* How God is sovereign, compassionate and wise and how those all still makes sense even when he must discipline us as his children.

* How to think about our problems in light of who God is..."Many Christians in today's churches seem much more convinced of the reality of their problems than the reality of their God."

* How intense it is that Jesus left heaven, took on a human body, to take the punishment for our sin and how there is no love that compares to the beauty of God redeeming us and making us his people ready to do great things for his glory!

* How everything that God has for us to do, he is enabling us to actually do because of the Holy Spirit, our Helper, living in us--amazing!

* How reading the Word and praying continually are not just spiritual disciplines that we should strive for because we know we should. They are our connection to the God of the universe!

You should definitely get yourself a copy of Practical Theology for Women and see for yourself how knowing God will make a huge difference in your everyday life!
