Overview

Why don't we talk about God's maternal love? Searching for answers, Trudy Beyak, an award-winning journalist, interviewed 50 global leaders of faith: Ruth Graham, Ravi Zacharias, Raymond Damadian, MRI inventor; J.I. Packer, editor, ESV Bible; Gary Chapman, Tony Campolo, Luci Swindoll, Brennan Manning, Pope Benedict XV1 and many others.

Ruth Graham says this: "When God created men and women to be like Him, women are half the picture." And, Ravi Zacharias agrees, because, according to the Bible, they reflect the "maternal personality of God's love." When no one cares, and you're all alone, God comes close and comforts your soul, as a mother comforts a child [Isaiah 66:13].

What a gift, then, it is to be a mother! The "maternal instinct" to nurture others -corresponds to the Creator, the God of all comfort. Women will no longer need to ask: Dear Lord: Who am I? Discover "50 exclusive interviews" that will transform a woman's life. And there's much more. The Mother Heart of God is a spiritual journey, a personal invitation to every man and woman to experience the love that brings hope and healing to every soul.

QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

"God expressed his love in the metaphors of the family, both father and mother."
