Unexpected Love: God’s Heart Revealed in Jesus’ Conversations with Women by Julie Zine Coleman

Unexpected Love
Unexpected Love If you wonder how God feels about women…

We’re all looking for something when we come to Jesus. The women who came to Him when He walked on earth were no different. From our 21st-century perspective, it can be difficult to understand His interactions with them. Without an understanding of the culture, and in-depth Scripture study, we may even be offended.

If you wonder how God feels about women, especially if you struggle with doubt that He understands and cherishes you, Julie Zine Coleman’s examination of Jesus’ conversations with women will help you see God’s heart and know that He loves you. He loves you enough to meet you where you are, and, even better, loves you enough to not leave you there. He knows what You want, but desires to give you what He knows you need.

Coleman guides readers into a fresh perspective on Jesus’ conversations with nine women, including His mother. Each chapter begins with the Scriptural account of a conversation Jesus had with a woman, followed by a creative retelling. Next is a “Digging Deeper” section in which the author explains the Biblical accounts and her interpretations by putting them in both their historical and Scriptural contexts. She then gives readers ideas for practical application by relating the freshly-understood truth to Christ-following women today and providing opportunities for deeper understanding through other Scripture passages, questions, and journaling prompts.

Unexpected Love is a well-written, well-researched book. The author’s desire to seek and share God’s love and Biblical truth is obvious. I appreciate the new understanding I have of God’s heart and recommend this book!

  1. Dear Melinda:
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review my book! Your positive remarks encourage me greatly. I’m so happy God used my writing to know him better. It’s why I wrote it… I just fell in love with Jesus more and more with each encounter I studied. I wanted women to see what I saw in him.
