This resource presents the power of theology while exhorting women to apply what they believe about God in the middle of life's daily battles. Women in evangelical churches believe in God. However, when they are faced with life's battles - financial problems, job loss, serious illness - they begin to question the God they know. "Can he really provide for my family?" "Can I truly trust him to get me through this crisis?" If such a woman is not grounded in her knowledge of God, the battles she faces threaten to shatter her wavering faith. Wendy Horger Alsup recognizes such dangers. In Practical Theology for Women, Alsup uses the power of theology to address practical issues in women's lives. Her book opens with a general discussion of theology and addresses the most fundamental and practical issue of theology: faith. Then she explores the attributes of God the Father, Son, and Spirit from Scripture, concluding with a look at our means of communicating with God - prayer and the Word.
