Pursuit of Proverbs 31 by Amy Bayliss
There are many women who would like to rip out a chapter in the Bible--Proverbs 31. Who is that elusive woman of Proverbs 31? Was she a real person or multiple different women? Oh, and how are you measuring up to her? Amy Bayliss answers these and many other questions in her ebook Pursuit of Proverbs 31. Amy describes how she struggled with this chapter herself and wore herself out trying to measure up to this woman in the Bible. This is a book she wrote to dispel the myths surrounding this controversial chapter of Scripture. It takes us away from a works based mentality and instead dives into the character displayed in these verses.
Chapters in the book cover having a true relationship with God, being a wife and helpmate, having a Biblical marriage, motherhood, home and family management, excellent advice on frugality and budgeting, and ministry. This 145 page book has helpful tools to apply what you've learned in each chapter: "focused thoughts", which are like a summary of the chapter, a scripture for memory, and several things to do and questions to answer. Another helpful part of the book is that Amy includes detailed instructions for studying the Bible.
I enjoyed this different look at Proverbs 31 that doesn't put more pressure on women to perform, and I think other Christian women would also benefit from it. If you like, you may purchase it here.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
