What caught the attention of my Christian women's book club about this book was the familiar author, Beth Moore. She rightfully has a popular and positive reputation among Christian readers. We pleasantly discovered that this is actually a collection of related essays by other Christian women (and one man!) who added powerful messages of their own. "A Woman and Her God" felt more personal than other books we've studied. We were each able to take something away from the varied discussions focusin ...more

Some of the chapters spoke to my heart and soul more than others. I would recommend it to others.

A collection of devotional type messages from some really amazing Christian women (and one man). Really enjoyed this read and the format of each message was easy to read and inspired good time with God.

Generally pleasant, mostly Biblical, and often convicting. Not deep, but I was still encouraged in my desire to grow closer to God through His word.

Very simple, but very helpful in the sense of reminding me about God and His love for me as a woman. I had to read this book for my women's counseling class. I enjoyed it.

What I liked the most about this study; the variety of writers with encouraging and helpful information. I would recommend this to any Bible Study group of Women.

He loved us. Colossians 3:1–4 says, “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with h

Fantastic Devotiond

I love this book. So many women giving life lessons through His word. I loved every one I read. A MUST read for any women no matter what stage you are in your walk with God.

Good essays for women. I felt Hagar's essay was a little repetitive of an earlier essay and I felt the LaHaye's used some terminology that was not well introduced. Overall, a good devotional read.
Bridgette Marriott
Actually, I'd give this one s 3.7. I enjoyed most of the essays and it's a pretty quick read. definitely going to pass it on.
Kerry Hensley Cobb
Greatly defined for women wanting to know what our role and purpose is according to God. Wonderful book.

Great and enjoyable read. This book was read at the perfect time where I need a reset button to stop and reflect where my heart is. It puts in perspective the important things.

A Lulu recommendation!!

Since it was an edited work, there were some sections that were excellent (Beth Moore and Sandra Wilson), most were average and I've never been a fan of Jill Briscoe's writing, so I just skimmed that chapter. The best thing about the book was that it introduced me to Sandra Wilson. Her chapter nailed it! So much, that my next book is Into Abba's Arms. Very excited to start it later today.

This is not just a book by Beth Moore. Several Christian women contributed to this book, so the topics range in both depth and subject. I enjoyed reading this for a college course on working with women in ministry, but would have enjoyed it even without the requirements of class.

A collection of messages from inspiring Christian authors. Excellent book - thanks to Penny for leaving it behind. I especially like the chapter written by Jill Briscoe on Jesus and the Woman at the Well. It centers on how Jesus loves and cares for women. I recommend this book.

Had to read this book for my counseling women class. I absolutely loved it. There were so many things to apply to my personal life and it greatly enriched my faith. It definitely made me re-evaluate how I look at different things and put things into a very good perspective!

This was a good read in that it reminded me how special I am to God, and how much He loves me. Females need to hear that from time-to-time... Also provided great insight on a woman's relationship with the Lord

I thought this book was rather shallow. I want deep, meaty, applicable truth, but this was mostly cute anecdotes and feel-good messages with a few deep truths splashed through it.

I liked that each chapter was written by someone else and all the bible verses each author used and recommended at the end of each chapter as verses that inspire.

Good usage of Scripture and most of it can be applicable to male or female. Definitely a way of empowering the average woman to think more "outside of the box".
Mandy Huot
I really enjoyed the fact that each chapter was written by a different person. I could relate to alot of the events talked about in this book.

So far, I've found it to be interesting, although sometimes a bit more psychobabble than truth. It's worth reading though.

“Lord, You know me. You know my natural personality is given to fear. You know all my insecurities. You know that I have a need to be loved and to feel significant and to feel affirmed. And Father, I’m not going to ask my family to do that for me today. They may or may not, and if they do, that’s wonderful. But Father, You are my sole satisfaction, and I ask You to satisfy me this morning with Your unfailing love.” 5 likes
