New Book References Biblical Stories about Men and Women Encountering God

Author spotlights the Triune God’s love in action bringing men and women together

Are men and women doomed to fight the “battle of the sexes”? In “Watching God Woo the World,” the Rev. Dr. Ruth E. Correll says, No! She references accounts of men and women who worked together to present hope from God with one voice. The book provides accessible, brief, and informative introductions to each story with tips on how readers may find related threads of God’s grace in their lives.

Correll explains her belief that linkages between the genders that God created have a profound impact on spiritual formation of faith, hope and love. She emphasizes that Jesus neither showed preferential treatment toward women and men, nor assigned distinctive sex roles.

“Each chapter is a gem, and provocative of useful reflection. The book distills a lifetime of good teaching on your part,” commented Les Fairfield, mentor and professor from Trinity School for Ministry.

Her innovative study draws from some 70 accounts of men and women found in scripture who moved both toward or away from their Creator’s wishes. She follows the paths of characters like Leah, Moses, the woman at the well, and the disciples as God changes their hearts and the direction of their lives. Correll encourages readers to examine perspectives from biblical stories to discern the Holy Spirit’s work today.

“Here both beginners and experienced Bible students share God’s grand story where beloved but imperfect men and women are called to a covenantal bond with the Holy Trinity” Correll said,” I hope readers discover that God’s love is real, life changing and heart enlarging.”
