Review 1 for Beautiful: How to Be a Beautiful Woman of God
Date:September 4, 2007
I bought this book the first week in June and that night I read itall in one sitting, it was so inspiring! I liked it so much that we used it to do a weekly study for the high school girls in our ministry. Every Thursday this summer weve packed out our living room with high school girls who want to be women of God. I would read the chapter aloud and wrote study questions that we discussed with passages to guide our conversation. I wanted to share this review in hopes that this book will be a resource to many others as it has ministered to me all summer!In ten chapters Redman takes us back to the beginning when God created woman and from this point gives clear, Biblical direction for a woman to be living her life for God, starting with a relationship with Him. She shows that you cant just work harder at being the woman you want to be, but have to surrender all to Christ as Savior and become all that He wants you to be. After laying this foundation she administers Scripture in going after our struggles, habits and hopes and also a three chapter look at the woman of Proverbs 31. She writes with such a simple, passionate and personal tone that it wasnt hard to get into each chapter and come away with specific things to work on in my own life.The style and readability of this book makes it effective especially for younger women, maybe targeting the college age but easily adaptable for women of all ages. Redmans message for women to follow Christ by embracing their role is a timeless and exhortation that doesnt apply to one age group over another. I would definitely recommend this book to young women. My heart yearns to see more young women give up everything for God, embrace His plan for them and be transformed into women who radiate His beauty. In this book Beth Redman so effectively asks the questions, encourages with Gods Word and cuts to the heart that it can be a very helpful tool in this process.
