By Dena Dyer and Tina Samples
Sub-title: Finding Hope When Life Hurts
Ms. Dyer and Ms. Samples relate stories of Biblical women who underwent some soul-wounding experiences. From the two women in Solomon’s court through Mary and Martha the relating of these stories show us the miracles of God. One chapter deals with women unable to bear children.
I love the dedication Tina Samples wrote:
To all the women who have been deeply wounded and have no idea
what to do with the wound—this book is for you. May it touch the
deepest part of your wound and bring healing beyond your understanding.
Each chapter has at least one scripture reference about the circumstance of the woman or women in the chapter. Interspersed in each chapter are experiences of the authors or people they know. The authors include a study guide suitable for in depth group study at the end of the book.
I enjoyed this book because it gave me a better understanding of the Biblical women included in the work and opened my eyes to the issues faced by modern women who have been wounded. I would recommend this book to women who have endured traumatic experiences and Christian therapists who work with them. Also pastors would gain information in ways to help women conquer injuries to their spirits.
I received a free copy of this book from Kregel Publications through Book Fun (aka Book Club Network). All they asked me to do was read this book and give an impartial review.
