Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul: Captivating, was beautifully written and made for any woman in any stage of her life. John & Stasi Eldredge reach into the inner workings of a woman and pull forth truths that even I had never thought to see or wanted to admit about myself. This novel uses biblical references to show you that those feelings and yearnings that you’ve had for romance, adventure and inner peace within yourself are all natural things. In fact, the two authors go a step further and challenge you to not only accept that as women we want certain things out of life, but to live shamelessly and wholeheartedly in that truth. They mention the feminine soul and how over time, the world has crushed it – warping it making women feel less than if we don’t measure up with the guidelines set by others. However, the two authors do an amazing job of also reminding us that women have such an important part to play in all of this.
Stasi Eldredge states in chapter 1, “God created you as a woman (Genesis 1:27) Whatever it means to bear God’s image, you do so as a woman. Female…Your feminine heart has been created with the greatest of all possible dignities – as a reflection of God’s own heart…The desires that God has placed in our hearts are clues as to who we really are and the role that we are meant to play.”
I think I loved this book the most because you get a woman’s point of view, but you also get a few words of true wisdom from a man who truly loves his wife. Each chapter covers a topic that represents a woman in a different season of her life. It’s truly genius how they coordinate their dialogue throughout the book, switching and taking turns to give us all a beautifully rounded work of literature. I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a session in self-realization. Because that is what you will get with this book. If they aren’t yet, your eyes are sure to be opened to the life you could live as a “fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.”
