Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Bishop Long pastors the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga., whose membership skyrocketed under Long's headship from a scanty 300 to more than 25,000 people. Long's homiletical techniques must be both persuasive and impressive to regularly fill his church's 10,000 seats. However, his charisma doesn't translate as well on paper, making this guide for Christian women little more than a stale rehashing of similar exhortations. Long shares with readers how a persistent urging by his wife birthed the premise of this book, based on 2 John 1:1, where John greets an "Elect Lady." Long encourages all women, no matter their background, disappointments or failed dreams, to embrace God's destiny and eternal purpose. He challenges women to move beyond stalled relationships, transitional setbacks and life's interruptions. Citing Mary, Jesus' mother, as the quintessential Elect Lady who had to overcome public stigma as well as personal sacrifice, the author enjoins every woman to emulate Mary's steadfast faithfulness to God's greater plan. Long clearly has a passionate desire to see women fulfill their optimal potential as Christians influencing those under their care, yet the book comes across as unoriginal and tired. (Jan.)

    A Must Read for Every Woman (and the men who love them)

    I was in the bookstore looking for another book when this one caught my eye. I could not put it down. Reading it brought tears to my eyes right then and there. I truly felt that God was speaking to me through this book. I am going through a trial right now, and while reading this book, it was as if God Himself was wrapping His loving arms around me, letting me know that He has not forgotten about me. I am recommending that all of the women in my church purchase it at our next meeting. A truly, truly, truly EXCELLENT read.
