Book Review: God's Promises for Women of Faith

The latest book I received from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program certainly looked promising.  No pun intended.  The blurb promised that it would contain "promises of God specifically targeting women".  The verses are actually good for everyone..but the design and formatting definitely has a feminine flair.

This little book (196 pages) is divided into sections with titles such as "God's Plan for Women is to..." and "God Comforts Women as they Learn to...."  Each section contains several subsections supported by scripture. For example:

God Gives Freely to Women....
      Power to Defeat Fear
            "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us...." Romans 8:37-39

The pages have a nice feel to them and the font face is easy on the eyes. This book is small enough to slip into a purse, backpack, or diaper bag, but has a sturdy and attractive hardcover.

This would make an excellent gift book for women of any age: friends, Bible study leaders,  church staff, neighbors, shut-ins, new moms.   It lends itself well to devotional or quiet time reading and provides inspiration for finding just the right scripture for a situation--for you or for a friend or loved one.  

And it's just right for helping you meditate on scripture during the day: car line, waiting for appointments, coffee break. Recommended.
