Practical Theology For Women

Practical Theology For Women

$18.99

Paperback
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.

A great solid book
4 stars By Ashley, Feb 07 2013
Theology isn't just for scholars or pastors - we all have equal access to God through Jesus Christ! 
Alsup biblically examines the character of God and applies these characteristics to us in regard to our responses in life - if we know God is Sovereign and in control, then why do we worry? If we know he is Just and Loving, why are we so quick to judge others? 
Alsup also uses her own life experiences as an encouragement to readers and to help link biblical theology to everyday life. 
This book is easy to read and gives definitions to all those words we use but never really know how to defne (eg. sanctify, glorify). 
This book would be perfect for a woman who has just come to Christ or one that wants to know more about God as reflected in the Bible, however if you are looking for a book deep in theology, this may be too basic for you.
