review of let me be a woman.
on 12 September 2009
So many young woman today want an older female figure to look up to for guidance through life's trials and tribulations, yet so many woman do not have this blessing for one reason or another. If this is true of your situation, then this book is for you if you are wondering what it means to live by God's standards asa woman. I find this book particularly interesting as it goes back to the source of all things to see what we as women should be like. Indeed Elliot does indeed say that " in order to learn what it means to be a woman, we must start with the One who made her."
Elisabeth Elliot is a well known and respected chirstian author in the world of liturature and this book she has written ahs been no disappointment. In this bookn she decribes our role as woman as christians by focusing on what the "One who made her" has to say what our duties and roles as woman are.
Although this book is written specifically for her daughter as a marriage present, we, as woman of the twenty-first century can also benefit from Elliot's words of experience and wisdom which is heavily supported by words of scripture from the Bible. i reccommend this book to any young woman seeking to find God's will for themsleves in relationships, family, the home, church and work. It has deeply inspired me and reminded me of the grace of our mericful Lord.
