All the Women of the Bible

 

Indispensable reference book!  I pull this out often as I prepare for Ladies’ Bible Studies or writing articles.  It gives me a good starting place as I look for the historical and biographical context of a passage.  All known references to women are cited whether she is named or not. …

Quiet

 

I loved this book.  Susan Cain retraces her steps as she researched the introverted personality.  It seems introversion and extroversion are innate in our personalities.  She points to our past conduct guides like Pilgrim’s Progress “which warned readers to behave with restraint if they wanted to make it into heaven.”  (Not …

 A Christian ought to seek to understand the Almighty God as much as possible through the Scriptures.  Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy brings the reader along this pursuit.  I loved following his train of thought.  The book is an easy read, yet the concepts are of such depth that you can’t …

A Year of Biblical Womanhood

 

Reading this book was like watching the Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham debate about creationism.  The subtitle is “How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head, and Calling Her Husband Master.”  The author came from a completely different world of thought from myself and there …

Hinds Feet on Hight Places

 

This short allegory has become a modern Christian classic.  It reads much like Pilgrim’s Progress with villains like Craven Fear and heroes like Mrs. Valiant and places like the Precipice of Injury and the Valley of Loss.  Hinds Feet is the story of the little lamb named Much Afraid who …

Secure in the Everlasting Arms

 

A refreshing book! So many ladies’ books dwell too much on our need to feel good about our position in Christ, but they let us off the hook when it comes to personal holiness in a sinful world.  Not so here.  Elisabeth Elliot is known most widely for her marriage to …

The Rise and Fall of the American Teenager

 

Thomas Hine provides some interesting observations in this semi-historical book about the recent phenomenon called “the teenager.”  The author’s opinion is that before the Depression and WWII, teenagers were considered adults as soon as they were capable of performing adult work and responsibilities.  Since then, they have been “set aside” …
