Item Description...
A book that calls us to be a composite of two women--Mary and Martha--who take time to know Jesus better and whose theology informs and emboldens their ministries to others.

Publishers Description
In Praise of When Life and Beliefs Collide.Sooner or later, life's difficulties bring every Christian woman to God's doorstep with questions too personal to ignore. 'Why does God let me go through such painful circumstances?' 'Why does he seem indifferent to my prayers?' We're tired of spiritual pie in the sky. We want authentic, God-as-he-really-is faith---the kind that holds us together when our world is falling apart and equips us to offer strength and hope to others.When Life and Beliefs Collide raises a long-overdue call for us to think seriously about what we believe about God. With passion, brilliance, and eloquence, Carolyn Custis James weaves stories of contemporary women with episodes from the life of Mary of Bethany to illustrate the practical benefits of knowing God deeply. Examining the misperceptions and abuses that discourage women from pursuing a deeper understanding of God, this insightful book demonstrates how practical and down to earth knowing God can be.'This outstanding book offers the best demonstration that everyone needs theology, the best expository account of Mary and Martha, and the best trajectory for women's ministry in modern North America that I have yet read.' ---James I. Packer'Thoughtful, scholarly, and motivating . . . should inspire and encourage women for years to come.' ---Joni Eareckson Tada'You will not think the same way, nor hopefully be the same, after reading this thought-provoking book.' ---Vonette Zachary Bright'. . . affirms women in their calling, chosen-ness, and gifting, and makes us know we are cherished and planned for.' ---Jill Briscoe

Reviews - What do our customers think?
When Life and Beliefs Collide  Jan 6, 2007
Theological sound. Encouragement for women to not be afraid of "Theology". The author is Biblically sound in her doctrine and how women can relate to other women and others in her life; whether a crisis or just daily living. A very much needed message in this post-modern world.
Nice Surprise  Feb 24, 2006
When Life and Beliefs Collide was suggested to be by a man. I was skeptical to say the least. However, it is one of the most faith affirming books I have ever read. It is inspirational, informative and interesting. It makes me laugh and cry all on the same page!! Our book club is reading it and while some were not sure at first about the topic of theology, by the third chapter they are all hooked. It is a must read!!
the book I wish I'd written  Sep 13, 2005
When Life and Beliefs Collide is one of (if not THE) best books I've read in a long time. Definitely worth your time.

For more information, my online review is available here.
A must-read that will get you thinking  Apr 7, 2004
This was an absolutely wonderful book. I think that all women (and men!) should be required to read it. I had already come to many of the same ideas and conclusions as the author before reading the book, but she manages to say things in such a clear, coherent way that I truly enjoyed and benefited from reading the book. I bought copies for many of my female relatives. They all thought it was very thought-provoking (in a very good way), thanked me for sending it to them, and are now passing their copies on to their women friends. Don't miss out on this great book.
Yes it is true - this book is simply outstanding  Nov 24, 2003
Yes, the reviews are all true! This book is THE book by a Christian woman in decades. It should be read by EVERY Christian woman in the USA today. Folks, Custis James is really THAT good!
