I recently had the opportunity to review two new books by women that I wanted to mention to the community here.
First from well known speaker Nancy Ortberg is Looking for God: An Unexpected Journey Through Tattoos, Tofu, & Pronouns
(Tyndale, March 2008). Consisting of series of essays, this book explores the diverse ways we can encounter God and be moved to serve him. My review is here
Then there is Susan McLeod-Harrison's Saving Women from the Church: How Jesus Mends A Divide
(Barclay Press, Feb. 2008). This book explores the ways in which the church has hurt women and the biblical hope that can be found instead. My review can be found here
I appreciated both books for their unique perspectives. Neither book is written just for women, but I found that authors' have messages that can reach out to women. Just wanted to pass on the info - enjoy!
