Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today - Book Review

Giveaway is now closed. Congratulations #4 Amy! If you haven't received an email from me, please send me your full name and shipping address by June 13.

A couple of months ago New Hope Publishers sent me Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today by Kathi Macias to review. If you are unfamiliar with New Hope Publishers maybe you will recognize their parent company - WMU (Women's Missionary Union).

Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today is a devotional book that takes 15 mothers of the Bible, briefly studies each woman's life and applies principles from each woman for mothers of today. Included at the end of each chapter are questions to help you meditate and apply the principles that have been shared.

My favorite chapter, if I have to pick one, is Jochebed: The Greatest Sacrifice. Jochebed, the birth mother of Moses, sacrifices her relationship with her son in order to insure his safety and well-being.

This story certainly isn't new to me, but I don't think I had ever considered Jochebed's devotion to God and her son before. Or the courage it took to allow her son to be raised by another woman.

I found this book to be doctrinally sound and recommend it to any individual or small group wanting to study the lives of Biblical mothers.

In fact New Hope Publishers is providing an additional copy for me to giveaway to one blessed reader!!

To win Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today leave a comment by 8:00 PM (EST) June 12 telling which Biblical mom you would like to study the most. A winner will be chosen via Random.org and notified by email Friday night.

#1 again? Hey, it worked great last time!

This book intrigues me...but I am not sure which mother I most would want to study. So far I haven't researched the book at all so don't even know who is included but Hannah has always been very interesting to me in so many ways.

Well, it would be great to win...not that I don't have a ton of reading that I want to do already...but I would love to add this to the stack!

Hannah comes to mind, but I think that really, Mary's life and thoughts would have to be so interesting and inspiring.

Thanks!
