“Know Him, and then act like you know Him.” This statement summarizes the purpose of Wendy Alsup’s little gem of a book, Practical Theology for Women. I recommend this book in the same way that I would suggest keeping a first-aid kit nearby—the essentials are there, organized and ready for when you are bleeding and need help. Beyond the essentials, Wendy cites personal examples of how God has shown Himself strong on her behalf and encourages the readers to know and trust Him as well. I found the preface alone to be worth the price of the book.
