Amazing insights on the true feminine. I work among the sexually broken and the insights in this book are insightful and hopeful, pointing to a deeper understanding of the masculine and the feminine within each one of us. My daughters are really enjoying the insights as they apply this wisdom to their own lives.
5つ星のうち5.0This books give the reader a good understanding into the Motherheart of God
For me it answered so many questions, about Father and Motherheart of God, it also exsposes Satan,s plan to destroy the famine nurturing heart within both the female and males makeup, thus aiming to destroy love,
As a son, husband,brother to my sister and father of a little girl, this book deeply touched me and opened my eyes to the reality of the war agains feminity in our cultures worldwide.Beginning with the biblical revelation of the feminine image of God, this book outlines how this image has been suppressed in men and women alike over the centuries, and how the church played its sad role in it.
Yet, instead of pointing the finger, provides Denise Jordan the reader with hope that we are living in exciting times, in which the full Divine Image is being restored in the Body of Christ and humanity at large.
The importance of comfort and the power of the substance of Father’s love are being clearly presented as the picture of the two callings of humanity emerges, in what has been termed ‘a theology of the heart’. The conclusion of the book makes clear, that this revelation will overtake the church and is indeed bigger than it.
A meditation at the end helps to process the book, which makes one want to read it again, and again, till its powerful message becomes a substance in the heart and finally sinks in. Highly recommended!
Excellent book about femininity and masculinity from a perspective that I bet you've never heard of before. Please read this book, and buy one for your daughter and give it to all the women in your life. Then, give it to the men in your life. Brilliant ,Denise Jordan, thank you!
Upon reading these words, I've encountered & experienced the Father's love from a feminine perspective (nurturing, tender & sweet), that is setting me free to release Him from this same received sweetness to my wife, children, family and the body of Christ...LIQUID LOVE
5つ星のうち5.0Wonderful, thought provoking and profoundly refreshing
Looks at some deep issues in a way that few others seem to have done. I felt it was balanced and clear. Even though the subject matter could be considered by some as controversial, Denise gives a refreshing biblical perspective on true and restored femininity. Her personal examples and observations sit comfortably next to well chosen references of other inspirational writers.
5つ星のうち5.0Amazing, Biblical, and Forgotten Teaching
I have been constantly awed by the Biblical insights this book brought to light. The historical and cultural records were helpful in seeing the scope of the absence and even animosity towards the mothering side of our Father God. This book isn’t saying God is a female as opposed to a male; it’s clearly laying out the truths that we humans came from God- He contains BOTH male and female in His heart, character, and actions. At the risk of sounding condescending- I say-“Duhhhhh! Where did both male and female come from anyway?!” We were made in God’s image, so of course He contains both! There were several inspiring moments in the book. I devoured it and loved it all. Please read it and go deeper! The curse on this land is Fatherlessness and we need a Father’s powerful love. But we are also missing and need a mother’s tender love. Thank God, He knows all and can work to heal our broken image of Him and our wounded, broken hearts, thus releasing us to Really Live. He has done it to my life and continues.
5つ星のうち4.0Uncovering the Lost Strengths in the Feminine
My brother, who is a fundamentalist Christian and tends to not be open-minded about anything too new, shared this book with me--that impressed me from the start! (No, I'm not bashing fundamentalist Christians. I'm saying that my brother tends to be rigid in his views, that's all.) In this slim volume, the author has really done her homework and approaches the subject of the feminine aspects of God with every attempt to introduce this subject with care and humility. No doubt it will still rankle those who prefer an angry, punishing god, but hopefully the topic will speak to their hearts. She is not trying to "feminize" God, just create a more balanced image by appreciating both male and female strengths in our Creator, and in ourselves. The only drawback I have is a very minor one: the book cover art is an odd choice; perhaps it's meant to be…???
Outstanding! Well-written with passion about the motherly love of God's heart. So true and yet so overlooked. Expression of the feminine characteristics of both God and people are vital to the Body, marriages, parenting and spreading hope to the world with God's gentle, nurturing love for individuals! Denise touches on these as well as the injustices against women throughout history which are not only sad, but appalling! An excellent read, including a new perspective on God, historical documentation on the treatment of women worldwide both currently and in church history, and hope for both believers and followers of Jesus Christ and those yet to experience God's multi-faceted qualities and tender love. We all need the love of a father AND a mother that the Godhead freely offers us both... perfect parenting for children of all ages! You are sure to be inspired and empowered.
