Woman of Strength
Living the Best Life Possible for God in this Broken World
by Alice Mathews
Learn what Proverbs 31 has to say for women and men. This chapter in Scripture has long been used to raise the bar for women to work harder, smarter, faster, to be more and do more. To which women have responded with determination, grit . . . and exhaustion. Is that what God intended? With Bible teacher Alice Mathews’s sound exegesis, you will unpack a better interpretation of the Proverbs 31 Woman—the Woman of Strength. Through careful translation, practical application, and reflection questions, you will discover what Proverbs 31 reveals about women, about men, and about God himself.
