"A Conversation with God for Women" by Marcia Ford

Like the title suggests, this book is full of dialog between women and God. Various topics like prayer, the Bible, God, Jesus, relationships, and life come up. Essentially, the way the book is laid out, a question is laid out to God, and God answers. While Ford uses Bible verses and Biblical insight, she often writes a narrative as if God is actually speaking to the women and leaves the Bible verses for the end of the book. They are footnoted in the chapters and included in the notes section at the back. Also, sometimes, Ford utilizes other Bible characters to voice responses. The book has good intentions, but not everyone may like this style. On the plus side, the pages are very glossy.
