I love women's ministry. It's one of my passions. I love teaching. I love learning. I just love getting together with women and growing in the Lord through fellowship around His Word!

 

So it's no wonder I love reading books along those lines. One book I had been meaning to read for years (but never seemed to get around to it) was A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George.

 

Here's the blunt, short version...

Likes:

There are practical tips in here that give great ideas.

It is presented in an organized layout.

It has a lot of great truths in it.

Covers the main priorities of women.

 

Dislikes:

Redundancy! I think the book could have been reduced by at least 25% if you take out the repetition.

It isn't KJV... several versions used.

Not really much in the way of meat for those who have been growing for a while, but good reminders...

 

I am giving kind of a mediocre review on this one. I think the redundancy was the most distracting part of the book. I felt like saying, "OK. I get it already. Move on." And then in the next section... right back to it. Ugh! My time is very limited and I found myself skimming instead of reading because I hate redundancy.

 

The book wasn't a waste of time. There was still things to glean. This book just isn't at the top of my list of books for women.
