James has created a vibrant work that incorporates excellent theology with compelling narrative. Employing both the Bible and modern stories, this work grasps the essential tensions of the Christian life. Her explorations of the Biblical Mary and the role of modern women in today's church are particularly insightful. I have already asked some of my university students to read and review this book and the results have been wonderful. Not only is James an excellent theologian, she is the kind of theologian the church truly needs: one that can write in an accessible and enjoyable way that all can understand.

Carolyn¿s book has been a tremendous encouragement in very difficult circumstances. From the day to day to several war zones, her message of the importance of theology (a relationship with God) has been a ¿saving¿ grace. In particular the concept that God is sovereign and that we run a race ¿marked out¿ for us, that the path we are on is Plan A no matter what happens, is a comfort when the going gets rough. Each time I read it, Carolyn¿s book has new insights for me wherever God has me. Having also read the book, my husband¿s perspective is that her book strengthens the church body by encouraging everyone to deepen his or her relationship with God for the good of families and the church at large. Carolyn¿s practical notes that follow the text, have been valuable resources. Read it and talk about it with anyone who will listen. It will benefit you and them!

Reading this book could not have come at a better time in my life. Over this past year I have encountered more 'collisions' between life and beliefs than I ever thought possible. Through real life stories and illustrations, Carolyn Custis James masterfully proves the importance of what I have wrestled through firsthand: knowing God and studying theology does make a difference in how to survive and overcome life's collisions.

Reading Carolyn James' book was a watershed experience for me. If I had any doubts about the pride and joy God takes in His daughters, if I had any misgivings about His love for me or His plan for me, if I had any concerns about whether the pursuit of a deeper, better theology is an appropriate priority for me, 'When Life and Beliefs Collide' has addressed them all. Founding her observations on the bedrock truths of the Bible, Carolyn James builds a strong case for the importance of good theology--knowing God rightly, and knowing Him better--for *all* women, whether we see ourselves as a 'Mary' or a 'Martha.' This book brings a word of comfort, confidence, and clarity to Christian women who want to know and serve the Lord better. And the applications and implications of this book reach beyond the concerns of women to embrace *every* follower of Christ. If you are somebody's daughter, or if you have a daughter, or if you're married to somebody's daughter, or if you hope to marry somebody's daughter, then this book is for you.
