A Conversation With God by Marcia Ford


Besides a beautiful cover and some insightful thoughts one some very relevant questions, this book has some true faults that can lead some new Christians astray. One such fault is the advice given by Jesus to the question of obedience to an ungodly boss.

We are to give genuine respect to the authorities in our life. So far so good, however that is not tempered with the first command to be obedient to God in all things. Ford completely sidesteps the issue broached initially and answers a tangent issue. This isn't the only place, but happens to hit an extremely sore spot for me since I experienced this very thing not once, not twice, but three times in my work history.

On a different note, I find it quite presumptuous to answer questions  for God and Jesus without utilizing the Holy Spirit's voice as well. It just hit a nerve in me. I don't think this was a wise choice for me to review because of this, therefore please take this review with a grain of salt.

A front row seat to a fascinating conversation with God, Jesus, and other biblical characters answering important questions women have regarding life and faith.

A Conversation with God for Women allows readers a one-on-one dialogue with God, Jesus, and other important biblical characters as they respond to questions and concerns relevant to the Christian faith. The often challenging questions address issues and tensions specifically felt by women. Each answer, designed for both believers and seekers, is based on Scripture and written with the warmth and intimacy of a Heavenly Father relating to His child.

Categories and sample questions include:
*God, why don't You just reveal Yourself? *Jesus, why was a virgin birth necessary? *The Bible, what can it teach women? *Life, what about women in ministry? *Prayer, can it really make a difference? *Relationships, how can we trust after betrayal? *Good and evil, how can they coexist?
