I am falling in love again because of this book...,
This review is from: Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul (Paperback)
A friend lent me this book while I was staying with her and I became very elusive as a snuck away constantly to finish it before i left! This is a lovely heart warming book about what makes us really tick as women, and how we can discover the relationship we are meant to have with our saviour. It addresses what goes wrong when we live life with our deepest needs and desires unmet, and how our true beauty can be accessed by allowing our creater to romance us the way we have always desired. I loved the new take on some familiar bible verses and the way the Adam and Eve scenario was revisited. The use of quotations and extracts from worship songs was helpful, as was the way both writers took turns to tell bits of the story from male and female perspectives. They write with great sensitivity and honsty and you feel more and more loved and important with every page you read.
This is a book which will give you hope, make you face up to the truth about who you are and help you to fall in love all over again with the God who made you because he needed you to exist.

Bless you Julia but God does not need anybody to exist, a man or a woman, a woman or a man
and the reason for that is the Trinity.God is the self affirming other who because of his pre existing ( that is before the generic mankind was created ) relationships with his son (to be called Jesus when he was born to the Virgin Mary and Joseph who became her husband ) and the Holy Spirit who all live co-eternally with the Father in Glory.The two even greater glories of and for women (and for us men) is the first one that He created you because we needed you because we were alone as man. The second glorious reason is that God created you has two sections,one is that He glories in unity and diversity, He already has that in the form of the Trinity itself.The second reason and one of the best for me and billions of other men is that you ladies are so so so beautiful and He loves your beauty too. He made you because He has good taste and He is so lovable in Himself. It takes a fool to reject God's love and I am so glad you and I are no fools.What we need most of all for both genders is in John 3.16
