Not so inspirational
on January 23, 2009
We bought this as a present for a family member who requested an inspirational book. This is a book with descriptions of women of faith who have done impressive things with their lives. You would think that would be inspirational, no?
No. I can't put my finger on how it misses. There's a little too much dry detail, and you cannot hear the voice of the amazing women well. It is as if they are caught, flattened, in a musty encyclopedia. You can't breathe the air that sustained them, you can't taste their spice of life.
It is great to see the lives of so many women (365) celebrated. I just wish it could have been to better effect.
