While some scripture was sprinkled throughout, the entire text was filled with fear-producing unbelief. I was left with the feeling that Elizabeth George believes that seeking counsel from people within a church body takes precedence over searching the scriptures (seeking God's advice through His Word was suggested "in addition" to finding it from people in a church) and that, whether in her 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's or beyond there is no good season to a woman's life.
In fact, in the final chapter of the updated and expanded version of A Woman After God's Own Heart, Elizabeth begins by saying, "I don't know about you, but I realize that the reality check we've just been through could be discouraging. It could be a real downer, even the beginning step toward slipping into depression if we aren't careful..." WHAT?!?!? 😨
I'm sorry, but the "reality" that Mrs. George referred to in this statement is so far removed from my own reality, and the reality experienced by the women within my own family and sphere of influence, that it isn't even funny! She doesn't even sound like the same person that wrote the earlier chapters of this book!
Unfortunately, it appears that Elizabeth George has succumbed to the worldliness, pseudo-psychology, and religiosity that is found so prevalent within the modern church of our day,
Sadly, this book that used to mean so much to me...a book that challenged and encouraged me for decades to keep pressing in and keep pressing on...inviting and inspiring me to be all that God created me to be as "a woman after God's own heart"...has suddenly left me with a very bad taste in my mouth.
As I have done dozens of times in the past, I will no longer be gifting women with this book and I, certainly, won't be encouraging women to read it. I was really saddened and surprised by the additions to this book and the changes that have taken place in Elizabeth George's view of reality as she has aged. It's very disheartening. 😞
