Book Review: A Conversation with God

I was recently given the opportunity to read A Conversation with God for Women by Marcia Ford. 

The purpose of the book is to answer the most asked questions by women concerning spiritual issues.  The format is quite interesting in that the answers are given in conversation/prose style.  Instead of giving a broad answer with scripture references, the answers are written as if God Himself is speaking to you.  He refers to His Word with examples.

Some of the questions include:

God, why don’t you just reveal yourself? What about women in ministry?  How can we stop worrying so much? How can evil coexist with your love? What’s up with the teaching on submission? and What’s so bad about gossip?

A total of 55 questions are answered in simple, easy-to-read prose from the perspective of both God and Jesus.  While I find it somewhat presumptuous to “speak for God”, the answers are Biblical and can probably be trusted as much as any commentary written by man. It offers an interesting perspective and the answers are quite thorough.

The best way to find the answers we need, however, is to read the literal Word for ourselves while praying for the Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and understanding.


This book was provided free of charge, for review, by BookSneeze.  A favorable review was not expected, nor was I compensated in any way.  All opinions are 100% my own.
