Review: Beautiful 4 Sep 2007
By C. L. Blakey - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Since that day, when I fully acknowledged who He was and grasped something of the immeasurable love and sacrifice demonstrated at the cross, I've been on a mission: to know Him more, to love Him more, to become more like Him and to make Him known to others. Even though for much of the time I was still in the same circumstances, I was not the same old me-I was a new creation...Let's not stay the same as we once were. He is calling us to dedicate our lives to Him, to be women of God who bring Him much glory."

These motivating words are the heart of and the introduction to Beth Redman's book-Beautiful: How to Be a Woman of God. I bought it the first week in June and that night I read it-all in one sitting, it was so inspiring! I liked it so much that we used it to do a weekly study for the high school girls in our ministry. Every Thursday this summer we've packed out our living room with high school girls who want to be women of God. I would read the chapter aloud and wrote study questions that we discussed with passages to guide our conversation. Tonight we finished the book and I wanted to share this review in hopes that this book will be a resource to many others as it has ministered to me all summer!

In ten chapters Redman takes us back to the beginning when God created woman and from this point gives clear, Biblical direction for a woman to be living her life for God, starting with a relationship with Him. She shows that you can't just work harder at being the woman you want to be, but have to surrender all to Christ as Savior and become all that He wants you to be. After laying this foundation she administers Scripture in going after our struggles, habits and hopes and also a three chapter look at the woman of Proverbs 31. She writes with such a simple, passionate and personal tone that it wasn't hard to get into each chapter and come away with specific things to work on in my own life. Here are some highlight thoughts-

"God's grace is enough for our deepest anguish, for the pray we feel He's never heard and for the sadness that for awhile we must live with. In pain, we should not take things into our own hands. We must continue to call on Him, our Savior. We need to trust Him even though our world is caving in. At times of breakdown, we are often nearest to a breakthrough."

Chapter 3-"I Want to Be an Uncomplicated Woman" p. 33

"The question for all of us is this: Are we working out God's calling to us humbly and with reverence, gently seeking to become who He wants us to be? Or are we aggressively fighting for freedom in ways that do not match His design?"

Chapter 4-"I Want to Know Who I Am" p.39

"The Christian life is not you on your own, striving to make things happen by mere willpower, discipline or determination. Instead, it is something far more glorious: `Christ in you, the hope of glory' (Col. 1:27)...The gloriously strong Maker and Sustainer of the universe is living in you-through the power of His Holy Spirit."

Chapter 10-"Christ in You, the Hope of Glory" p. 106

The style and readability of this book makes it effective especially for younger women, maybe targeting the college age but easily adaptable for women of all ages. Redman's message for women to follow Christ by embracing their role is a timeless and exhortation that doesn't apply to one age group over another. I would definitely recommend this book to young women. My heart yearns to see more young women give up everything for God, embrace His plan for them and be transformed into women who radiate His beauty. In this book Beth Redman so effectively asks the questions, encourages with God's Word and cuts to the heart that it can be a very helpful tool in this process.

Great conversation starter 27 Feb 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We use this as a conversation starter for a Senior H.S. girls small group to talk about the intersections of life and faith. The topics are ageless, and would be good for any woman. I probably wouldn't use it for any group younger that 12th grade, as it wouldn't be be easy for a younger girl to relate to. It's also a good read on your own.

This book was an interesting read for me. The author draws inspiration from personal and relationship experiences. Not very thought provoking, nor detailed. It is an ok book.
