This book is setup to be a conversation with God, Jesus, and various women biblical characters. It is based on 55 common questions that people might have concerning the world. It also states what God's answers would be to the questions.

This book is setup to be a conversation with God, Jesus, and various women biblical characters. I'm always conflicted about how I feel about those types of books, because it seems arrogant as the author to say you know what God would exactly say in this circumstance. The book keeps to using Bible verses closely to best navigate what might be said by these appearances in the book though. Overall the book is an interesting read. Each chapter is based on a separate issue.

In life people often find peace just by knowing about the question which defines the purpose of their lives.

God has already give you the answers on dating. secret relationships. not from parents, but from friends. like when the two people are from different cliques at school and want the relationship to be secre, but the parents know about it, so they have permission. What has light to do with darkness? Do not be unequally yoked with an unbeliever.

It could be possible that any being on such a level would be "above" lying or any human concept . Strange as it may sound, I wouldn't ask anything. You can ask God any question. The curtain has been torn.

It could be possible that any being on such a level would be "above" lying or any human concept of morality or good and evil, but once again, there's no way to know.

This is excellent book that we are using in a Church Small Group This book is brining us all closer to God and understanding his will for our lives.

Marcia Ford brings readers a book that while controversial, still addresses the religious concerns of women in today's society. Ford attempts to bring the reader into an intimate conversation with God, by posing questions that many women have probably asked themselves at one point or another. With beautiful design, a conversational tone and precise and in depth research, A Conversation with God for Women is an interesting account of what God might answer when His child asks a question...

What I liked:

The design of this book was beautiful, from the cover to the way the book was organized. Ford asks 55 questions that many of us have often wondered about, no doubt. Things like... How can good and evil coexist in the world? What should the position of women be in the ministry? I liked the fact that the author was trying to take a lot of the guess work out of Bible study. She uses impeccable research from a lot of different sources and brings it all together in a conversational manner, that might be good to spur conversations with other believers. I liked the tone of Ford's writing and I understood what she was trying to accomplish, but the manner she chose to do that was a little too controversial for me.

What I didn't like:

To offset all of the good things that the author had going for her, she makes a bit of a mistake. In trying to make her book conversational and relatable to readers, she chose to write the answers to her questions in a dialogue format, essentially answering as the voice of God. That was a little hard for me to swallow. I believe the Bible is the authority on what God has to say and nothing should be added or taken away. Each of Ford's answers were meticulously researched, but she still did not have the authority to answer for God. I can see how some readers would definitely be offended by this. I found it somewhat disturbing and I am very open minded.

Bottom Line:

I do not think it was the author's intention that her book would be taken this way, but unfortunately, some readers who are new to the faith or swayed easily by what they read, may take this book far too seriously and I think that is the danger here. Ford gives readers intense research and tons of notes at the end of the book. She took her time with it and did it the way she thought it should be done. It could be used as a tool to start conversations in small groups about the questions she poses, but this book was not my cup of tea.

Take it with a grain of salt and try it for yourself. I am not one to judge what is appropriate and what is not for each person. Your relationship with God should be as individual as you are. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this one, if any of you have read it.

The cover of this book states, "if you could ask God any question, what would it be?" I thought that was a very intriguing question. There are 55 different questions in the book, questions the writer thinks women would be interested in. The questions are supposedly answered by God--mostly from a Biblical point-of-view, but filtered through the thoughts and opinions of the author. The questions are answered by "God" along with others such as Jesus and other people of the Bible. The book tries to make the dialog take place in a conversational way.

This book could be a good jumping off point for thought. Hopefully it will cause the reader to look deeper at some of the answers given for certain questions. My wish would be that the book would spur people to look into the Bible, see how the Bible lined up with the answers in this book, and how well they thought the questions were answered. The reader will need to decide whether or not they agree the answers the author gives for God should stand--or if the author had it wrong, and used too much of her own interpretation of what she thought God would say.

The question this book brings to mind is: should someone answer for God? It is important that the reader remember these answers are really from the author's point of view of the Bible and God. Although the idea of God answering specific questions is an interesting idea for a book, my worry is that readers might take these answers as "the gospel truth." Which it is not necessarily so, it is the author's viewpoint. So take the answers here with a grain of salt, and check everything out with the Bible itself.

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze/Thomas Nelson Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner.

Have you ever wished you could sit down and have a cup of coffee with God? Maybe ask Him some of your burning questions? "A Conversation with God" seeks to offer women the chance to have a heart-to-heart with God.

The author answers questions about God himself, Jesus, the Bible, life, prayer, relationships, and good and evil. Each of these topics forms a category wherein the author poses a question and follows it with a response from God's perspective, from Jesus, and from other biblical characters. Author Marcia Ford is careful to use scripture in the response and she has extensive notes in the back with all of the scripture references listed.

The book is done well in ease of finding information and it how it's formatted. It's organized and thorough. There's something about the way the author writes from God's point of view that is both ingenious and disturbing all at once. It's ingenious in that the conversational style takes the message straight to the heart where a reader might otherwise overlook the personal application of scripture. Each answer is also a well-researched compilation of information that might take a reader a long time to find.

However, the style is also just a little disturbing in that there was something that didn't quite feel right about hearing "God's words" written in first person outside of Scripture. There could be a danger of someone interpreting this information, which has been filtered through the author's perception, as actual scripture.

It's important for readers to keep in mind that all information should be verified with the Bible. If kept in the right perspective, this is a wonderful tool for helping people see what God's word says about many of life's greatest questions.

I received this book for review purposes from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Book Sneeze program.
