A Conversation With God For Women!

If you could ask God any question, what would it be? Many of those questions can be answered in this very effective book, "A Conversation With God For Women".

This book by Marcia Ford is an adult women's non-fiction about all the things women these days wonder, divided in seven sections:

  • God
  • Jesus
  • The Bible
  • Life
  • Prayer
  • Relationships
  • Good and Evil
Each section has around ten questions, pretty much all are VERY useful. The book answers many questions, including:

  • How are we made in Your image?
  • How can Your Spirit live in us?
  • Who's controlling our lives--- You or us?
  • Why was a virgin birth necessary?
  • Which Biblical promises apply to us today?
  • Is there a purpose to life?
  • How do we know what You want?
  • Can we ever be free of guilt?
  • God, do you really forgive and forget?
  • What's so bad about gossip?
  • Why are there restrictions on sex?
  • Why do Your followers have to suffer?
There are so many more amazing questions that I can't say now, because I don't want to make this post super long.

Many people have many questions that they would love to ask God,  and this book answered nearly all of mine! The plot and everything for this book is visible in the title, which I love! If you have questions to ask God that you just don't know how to ask or never really thought about, you REALLY, REALLY want this book!

This book was very well written. The questions are questions that women would really ask, the answers aren't too difficult to understand, and I'm sure that ANYONE would absolutely LOVE this amazing book, whether you're twelve years old or twenty-three years old, I guarantee, this will be a book you'll never want to return to the library! The library will have to keep fining you and fining you until the police come up to your door and force you to return it. This book is simply that good.

Here's a tip: Don't judge a book by it's cover or genre. I'd imagined this book would be very boring and drawn-out with extremely long chapters because it is for an older audience of women, and it's non-fiction. But, I was WAY wrong. This is one of my favorite books! Great for women with a busy schedule, because the chapters are only three and a half pages long! This same book is also great for women with a relaxed schedule, because there are 55 chapters, PLUS in the back, there are notes that go along with the scriptures quoted and everything. It is an absolutely perfect book for a teen girls or adult women Bible Study.

One complaint: Some questions were a little bit obvious for Christian women, like "Did You physically rise from the dead?" and "Did all those miracles really happen?" These questions (and more) aren't obvious for non-Christian women who weren't raised in the church, but as for the ones that have been Christians for awhile now, these questions seemed a little dry.

Overall, this book totally deserves four and a half stars out of five! I recommend this for adult women and their teenage daughters to use as a mother-daughter Bible Study.

318 pages!
Publisher: Thomas Nelson!

Thank you, Tommy Nelson, for giving me this book for free! I am so sorry about how long it took, and I promise I will make my other reviews publish a lot faster next time.
