Book Description

15 Mar 2010
Lydia: the woman you must know: addresses the issue of the Christian woman's place at home, church and the society through the character study of the New Testament woman Lydia.

As the first Christian convert in Europe Lydia showed qualities that was rare in women of her time. She was devoted to God and an independent woman. She managed a business and a household without the support of a man. And put a different face on feminism; but showed that a woman's liberation begins with the fear of God.

Lydia, although an immigrant woman did not waver in her beliefs, values and things she held dear from her past. She did not allow her adopted society's view to affect her dreams to be the woman God created her to be.

Following her conversion, she hosted the missionaries in her home for the period that they stayed in Philippi and gave an example of what christian hospitality should be.

The book sheds light on God's will to use women in Christian ministry as well as God's plan for women and work outside home. It also reaches out to women to strive to live their dreams in reality.

Based on the story of one of the New Testament's most illustrious Biblical women of Faith, I consider this book a must read for all Christians, in particular women and young girls. Lydia is an excellent role model for women and men of faith and aspiring ones. She was eager to be accepted as a disciple of Christ, was resourceful and her actions for God's work and people matched her words. For her faith and actions her name has become one of the most popular girls' names.

Author and Pastor Grace's book is very well written, makes light reading and is very scriptural. She amplifies Lydia's faith and works and demonstrates how women and girls today may emulate her, become a greater force for good in their families, churches and communities with a view to fulfilling their God-given destiny. At 132 pages it makes for a quick read. Purchase copies for yourself, your wife, child or lady friends; I think they would be grateful.

The book Lydia, is indeed well written and exemplifies what as women and children of God we should be. And as we honour the Father, He sure will honour us. As we wait on Him, He sure will come through for us, and as we worship Him, He will show Himself strong. I surely will recommend this book for everyone.
