Beautiful: How to Be a Beautiful Woman of God in a Cosmetic World

by Beth Redman

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In her book Beautiful: How to Be a Woman of God, Beth Redman addresses the bedrock yearnings that occupy many Christian womenís souls and minds: to be wanted, to feel beautiful, and to feel a sense of self purpose. She seeks to make women more able to realize Godís full plan for them, and to be able to recognize and accept His love. Redmanís stand on this is gracious, not accusatory, and aimed at helping those who feel unhappy and helpless to find fulfillment.

To address the needs women have, Beautiful is arranged as a series of wants, each chapter discussing a different desire. To be beautiful and to be uncomplicated are two of those desires. As each is examined, Redman uses illustrations from her life and the lives and careers of her friends as specific examples of Godís ability to meet needs. The stories are genuine. She tells them in a sensitive manner with the experience to know how painful the episodes were.

Beth Redmanís empathetic outreach, sympathetic style of counseling and teaching, and her use of reality-based examples all work to bring a personal touch to Beautiful, a scrutinizing look at feminine fulfillment. The approach is gentle, making it very effective for sensitive women looking for God. Anyone who wants to understand women better would gain valuable insights from this book; women searching for assurance of their own inner beauty and usefulness will enjoy it and find it both functional and uplifting.
