Book Review She Speaks Michelle Clark Jenkins
Wisdom From The Women of the Bible to the Modern Black Women
This book is beautifully illustrated with vibrant colors and design that is pleasingly aesthetic, it is written by an author whose focus is to reach Black Women in order to illustrate that even in Biblical days God had a plan for the Black woman. As we all know the word of God is for everyone and this book will prove helpful for Christian women of all ethnicity.
The book presents fifty women of the Bible; it is spoken in first person of each woman represented as they personally draw you into their lives. Each story is brief and shares intimate details of each woman’s life and the plan God had for them. Each introduction is followed up by three sections the first is titled “Why Her?” this section answers the question asked and share additional details about that particular woman. The second section titled “About Her” give some background information and the third section is “Apply Her” encouraging the reader to apply some biblical principles to one’s own lives from what they have learned from these women from so long ago.
The Final section is “Find Her” this is where Scriptural references are given. I found this book a quick read and very enjoyable. I plan to use it as a reference in developing a study to share with other women in my community focusing on the presence of the women of the Bible. I would recommend this book.

Review 2 for She Speaks: Wisdom from the Women of the Bible to the Modern Black Woman
She speaks is advertised as being a book which shows examples of powerful women in the Bible and how African-American women can find relevance, purpose and identity in the Word of God. It further offers complete Bible references to help the reader locate the stories easily. The book shows how God speaks through the women and also how this Biblical woman's story applies to the modern black woman's life today. If you want to find how important to you are to God especially as a black woman read this book.
I am a white woman and I found that this book to speak to me just fine and also found the books references to modern day to day life very good. Each chapter denotes a separate woman and would allow deeper study for each by using the Biblical references and also in at least one case extra-Biblical reference. This book is easy to understand by the reader whether or not the Biblical references are used. It could be used by groups who wanted an easy woman's Bible study.
