For the Love of God by Jenny Lee Sulpizio
I wanted to read For the Love of God by Jenny Lee Sulpizio because I was intrigued by the subtitle: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Faith and Getting Grace. Who doesn’t want a faith boost and to live a life full of grace? I need more of both in my life!
When I started reading, I thought maybe I had made a mistake. The book seemed to be for seekers, not women who have been believers for decades. But I stuck with it, and I’m so glad I did. Jenny does a wonderful job of explaining the basics of the faith, but she does so in a way that makes even the basics relevant for everyone.
Jenny explains how to have a relationship with Christ, what it means to have faith, what the Bible is, prayer, and more. What makes her book relevant to more than just seekers and new believers is the personal struggles and stories she tells as well as the testimonies from other women included in each chapter. I can relate to so many of them, and I was inspired and encouraged by their honesty and transparency. It’s comforting to know I’m not alone in the doubts and struggles surrounding my faith.
While this book may be intended for the newbie to the faith, there is a lot there to remind and revitalize the veteran believer too. I do not regret a single minute I spent reading this book, and I will certainly recommend it to others, both those who are seeking and those who need to remember why they do what they do—and that God is with us as we work through our doubts.
