Book Review: A Conversation with God for Women

You can preview the beginning of the book's content on the Thomas Nelson product page.

Have you ever been thirsty to ask God certain questions and longed to hear his audible answers? In A Conversation with God for Women by Marcia Ford, you have the opportunity to do that just that. This book asks 55 questions that many women may find themselves pondering. The topics covered include God, Jesus, the Bible, Life, Prayer, Relationships, and Good and Evil. God, Jesus, and other biblical characters take turns answering the inquiries. You literally feel like you are part of a true conversation.

I found myself taking my time with this book. Usually the books I read slowly are the ones I don’t like, but this one was totally different. I truly enjoyed and savored each chapter. After reading the answer to a question, I liked to ponder it further and let all the information sink in. While I didn’t learn any new information from the book, I loved having a different perspective. Instead of reading and trying to make sense of the sometimes-confusing Bible, this book afforded me the opportunity to hear the answers in a direct, modern way. It made God feel so much more tangible. I loved it! All the answers, by the way, are taken directly from Scripture. Each verse is referenced in the Notes section in the back of the book. This book is the perfect resource for a new sister in Christ and anyone who wants to draw a bit closer to our Creator. I highly recommend it.
