“Women’s Ministry in the Local Church” by J. Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt

Women's Ministry in the Local Church

The main thrust of this book was to show why and how there should be a women’s ministry in the local church. For the most part it is directed at those in leadership that would implement a woman’s ministry or the women that would lead a woman’s ministry, but it is by no means only beneficial to those two types of people. The authors did an excellent job of showing the Biblical need and pattern for teaching and discipling women. I was encouraged to continue in those things we are currently doing with our ladies at our church, and challenged to do more. Much more. Not only that, but the Bible pattern of women teaching women about Biblical womanhood was burned even deeper into my heart.

I appreciated this book very much.

“The Fruit of Her Hands” by Nancy Wilson

The Fruit of Her Hands: Respect and the Christian Woman

This is another great read by Nancy Wilson.  In this book she tackles the role of women as wife.  It is not deep, but it is Biblical and practical. I appreciate her easy to read and to the point writing style. In this book she deals with many aspects of being a wife, from how we are to view and treat our husbands, duties of homemaking, to the intimate part of marriage, and many other issues.

I did feel the book ended a bit abruptly, but I suppose it’s a good thing I wasn’t happy to reach the end so soon. I would certainly recommend this book. You could read it in a few short hours, and the great Biblical truths she presents will be a  help and encouragement to any wife.
