Book Description

1 July 2006
This title helps you experience real peace and joy as you follow God in every area of your life - and become a woman after His heart. With warmth and grace, Elizabeth George shares practical, scriptural insights on how you can pursue God's priorities when it comes to: your husband - foster a deep commitment to serving and honoring him; your children - pray faithfully for them and teach them God's Word; your home - create a nurturing atmosphere and a tapestry of beauty; your walk with the Lord - grow through love of Scripture and in spiritual maturity; and your ministry - learn to reach out and be a blessing to others. Let God fulfill His greatest desire for you. Allow Him to transform you by embracing His plans for you. And find real purpose in a life of prayer, a life of priorities, a life as A Woman After God's Own Heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding book 1 Jan 2008
By Jane
This book changed my life - and changed me in many ways. Elizabeth George has written a book to help women become the woman/wife/mother that God intended. Biblical quotations are used throughout.

This book can be very frustrating at times but the content is spot on and very challenging. It really made think - and continued to prompt me long after I had read it.

I have lent this book to many of my friends and all have found it challenging and very rewarding.

I recommend this book to any Christian woman who is trying to be the best that she can be.

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Although familiar with other Christian authors, I have never read anything by "Elizabeth George" before and I wasn't disappointed, in fact since reading "A Woman After God's Own Heart" I have purchased some of her other books.

Essentially 'A Woman After God's Own Heart' is a Christian book detailing the ideal Christian woman's approach to life, a very enjoyable and refreshing change from the modern go-getting, high productivity style of self improvement book.

"Elizabeth George" proffers advice and help for many areas of your life, focussing on your spiritual needs (she explains that this is the most important area, if you can get this part right then often the rest will follow), then your husband, children, your home, yourself and finally your ministry.

Very readable throughout, the author writes in a very pleasing style and you do not feel that she is preaching to you, just leading you gently in the right direction. As expected there are many scriptural references, all very helpful in your search for a better life filled with peace and joy.

Give it a try ... it could do you a lot of good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea! 17 April 2012
By Richard M. Seel VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have struggled with this book. It seems to me that Elizabeth George's philosophy might seem the way in which women should seek to live but I question how appropriate and realistic it is in this day and age.

George poses some questions which not only women but men, teenagers and children should ask themselves. For instance she asks `Is there a difference in the tone of your voice you reserve for your friends and the one you use with your family?' And again she encourages one to `eliminate idleness' by identifying `time robbers' and thus have more time to `help you buy back time for watching and working in your precious home.' Amongst the `time robbers' are:

* Inadequate personal planning
* Interruptions by people without appointments - she does point out that children are not interruptions!
* Unclear priorities
* Reading junk mail (I do this not to waste time but to bring me a smile!)
* Lack of concern for good time management (I am a person not a robot)

And George goes on to ask `which robber will you corral this week as you become a more alert, better watcher over your home?'

I find the language she uses and her style of writing very `American' and not very sympathetic to a woman striving to do her best for her husband and her family. I have to admit that some of her ideas and suggestions have merit but because of the dislike I have for her tone, I tend to disregard what she says. I have attempted to read `A Woman after God's Own Heart' three times but without success. I am afraid George is not for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful spiritual help but not for everyone 16 Feb 2012
By love reading TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I read this book (the old version) years ago and found it quite an affront to my feminist mindset. I've matured since then and developed my thinking and this time, I loved it. However, to some readers it would appear to teach wives to be doormats; as submission is a key principle which is taught. I do understand this philosophy now and have seen its application make a huge difference in my life but I can totally accept that some/many women would find this offensive. So make no mistake, this book is for the committed Christian woman wanting to live in a biblical manner.
Aside from that which would be off-putting to many, there are lots of truths and teaching points which are actually life changing. I like her style but she is American with those implications. Also on another negative note the book is firstly geared to wives and mothers in my opinion.
Overall though, this is a wonderful life-changing book for Christians and non-Christians; however, I imagine it will only appeal to the former as the submission aspects would be quite radical for many.

3.0 out of 5 stars A step back in time with a 1950s preaching vibe.
A Woman After God's Heart isn't a book for me. I felt the tone of the 'message' was given in a way that's quite patronising and I didn't enjoy being preached at. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good study book
We use this book at our Bible Study group, and it's quite good. Maybe a bit too American for me, but still has good teaching in it. Good book for a discussion group
