A Woman's Journey to the Heart of God

Cynthia Heald, Author Nelsonword Publishing Group $19.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-7852-7239-7
Heald's book is an exceptional text for the Christian woman who wishes to think of her life as a journey into faith. Filled with many anecdotes drawn from her own life, this book is designed for the busy life of active Christian women. The text is divided into short sections intended to provide bursts of inspiration when read in the moments between work and raising a family. Heald teaches how to be feminine Christians rather than Christian feminists. Her anecdotes and meditations advise women on buying and wearing ""righteous"" clothing, sin-free dieting and spiritual accountability. Heald's feminine Christian sacrifices herself for the good of her family, her friends, her neighbors and her church. This how-to book teaches women how to fit into a conservative Christian spirituality and to recapture the spirit of sweetness and beauty that Heald believes is part of a lost feminine ideal. Because Heald shares honestly her own struggles on her ""journey to the heart of God,"" this book will appeal to many Christian women undertaking the same kind of journey. (Oct.)
