    One thought on “Damsels in Distress: Biblical Solutions for Problems Women Face”

    1. Damsels in Distress by Martha Peace was a challenging, yet refreshing read. I find that so many books for Christian woman focus inordinately on the challenges of wives and/or mothers. As a single woman, who desires marriage but wants to glorify God in whatever season of life I am in, I sometimes get discouraged reading books like that—even when they expound on passages such as Proverbs 31 or Titus 2. Martha’s book is one for every lady—single, married, widowed, divorced—who calls Jesus C [...]

    2. Some of the chapters were decent, some were okay, some were pretty bad, and the chapter on feminism was atrocious. The quality of each chapter was directly proportional to the proper use of Scripture to address the topic covered, so the chapters that contained more of the author's opinions and less of the Bible made it much harder to find anything worth hanging on to. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book. The good bits did not in the least make up for the rest.

    3. Great little book. There are three sections, the first dealing with problems we have with others, such as gossip and hurt feelings. The second section deals with problems with ourselves, such as vanity and legalism. The third section deals with problems with the world, which was probably my favorite, consisting of three chapters--the first on the feminist influence, the second on the role of women in the church, the third with thankfulness amid trials. Each section has examples, charts, Bible ve [...]

    4. The women in my community group selected this book to read together and even though they meet on an evening I cannot, I decided to read with them (actually, I'm reading it some six months after they did, but that's besides the point).The premise behind the book is to point women to Biblical answers to common issues they face. From PMS, to gossip, to a woman's role in the church, this concise book provides Scriptural references for being a better daughter of God (and overall more pleasant person [...]

    5. For the most part, I appreciated Martha Peace's summary and Biblical approach to the topics she dealt with. However, there were several topics I felt required more extensive coverage than she provided. As far as the subjects she chose to address, I didn't agree with the way she addressed all them or even necessarily agreed with her take on them. For instance, her view on modesty was borderline legalistic and her chapter on feminism hardly provided an understanding of Biblical womanhood as much a [...]

    6. It is straight forward biblical teaching about issues we face every day. I've enjoyed going through it with my mentor. I've grown a lot from reading Martha even though some parts made me cringe from extreme cheesiness.

    7. This is a wonderfully encouraging book for us Christian women in today's world. I read a chapter a week, so that I could pray about, meditate on, and apply the topics all week. Martha is such an inspiration and has a fantastic testimony. I'm always sorry to come to the end of her books!

    8. For the Christian woman, this book is a true blessing. It provides sensible and biblical answers you can use to address the struggles in your life. Great book!

    9. I thought that the majority of this book was very common sense, especially when raised as a Christian. But I did not agree with all of her premises or conclusions.

    10. This book made me open my eyes to a lot of selfish things I have been doing, and have done in my life, God is good and this book makes me understand and love him even more
