“Interestingly, the most thorough account of biblical womanhood is found in the final twenty-one verses of the book of Proverbs. These ending verses of chapter 31 appear to be a tribute to a virtuous and capable wife.” (ebook page 123/362)
I disagree with the idea that Proverbs 31 is the most thorough account of biblical womanhood. It is probably the most preached but the Bible presents a variety of women with their own unique characteristics not limited to Proverbs.
I think my biggest problem with WISDOM IS A WOMAN is I can’t seem to reconcile the title with the content. I expected a book that celebrated womanhood- discussing the various contributions of women in the Bible and what I read was a discussion of womens’ “issues”. (Including a mention of menstrual cycle!)
No, I don’t recommend this book but I could be wrong you may find it a great book. And I just did not see the relationship between womanhood and godly wisdom.
