I questioned God why there wasn't more on his love for women in the Bible. And I won the book "Women in the Bible". His answer. 18 women who walked the earth with Jesus right along with his disciples clear to his resurrection. Broken, flawed, empty, rejected and so many characteristics these women possessed until they met Jesus. You can find yourself in more than one of these women - and they were not perfect. These are all women of the New Testament. When Jesus meets women, he doesn't condemn, put down or demean them in any way. He loves them where they are with all their flaws and offers them hope. He believes in them and gives them someone to believe in. I highly recommend this book as a devotional.
Dorothy's book is such a comfort and inspiration, letting us know that Jesus held (and holds) women in esteem, recognizing our worth. Every woman who reads this can relate to one, if not many more, of the stories presented in this book. In a world where women are often thought of a second-class citizens, this book is a refreshing reminder of where we really stand with God. I urge you to keep a copy by your bed and revel in its warmth.
