Read full description of the books A Woman After God's Own Heart:I didn't like this book, plain and simple. The first section, regarding having a heart for God, had some good advice--very practical, easy to apply to your own life, and solid.
However, once I got to the section about husbands, it turned from good to bad. This section blurs the lines between being a good Christian wife and being a good doormat. One line that still stands out in my mind read something along the lines of "if your husband is at home, you ought to be at home as well". Really? Has this author never heard of the Proverbs 31 wife? Elizabeth George paints a picture of a wife who borders on husband worship, and while I agree that we should apply scripture to our marriages, George strips all other purpose given to the wife when she offers her guidance in this section. I was really disappointed by this and it left me with a poor opinion of this book overall.
Another thing to mention is that this book really cannot be applied to those women who are not married with children. Not every Christian woman is married, and even if she is, she does not always have children to raise. There could be so much guidance given through a book like this, but it's completely lost on those who don' fit into that demographic.
Overall, I'm glad I read it, solely because it had been on my to-read list, but I was thoroughly disappointed by it and will not recommend it to others.
