A NEW PERSPECTIVE FOR TODAY’S CHRISTIAN WOMAN
1 Peter 3:4 describes “…the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” Many Christian women today face a dilemma in embracing the biblical teaching about a gentle and quiet spirit. They want to please God but they perceive “gentle” and “quiet” as unappealing weak or passive qualities or unattainable because of their own outgoing personality.
So what’s a modern Christian woman to do? Well, take heart because I have good news. The truth is that these are amazing qualities, both appealing and attainable. The original Greek text describes a strong and peaceful woman, and the word translated “great worth” means the very end or limit with reference to value. In other words, there is nothing more valuable to God. A Gentle and Quite Spirit will give you a new perspective and some valuable lessons in how to become this strong woman with inner peace. Twenty-five worksheets throughout the book make it especially useful as a personal or group study guide. — Virginia Lefler
