I Am His by Rita J. Platt

I Am His: Experiencing the Comfort of Abba's Love by Rita J. Platt is an 8-week indivdual or group bible study specifically written for women.  Over the course of eight chapters- intended to be read at a rate of one chapter a week, the reader will be guided into developing a personal relationship with God.  Throughout the new testament of the bible, one can see that God is a personal God, and as we become children of God, through our rebirth, we can claim God as out father.  In contrast to the dysfunctional relationship many have with their earthly Father figures who are imperfect and serve to dissapoint, God is the perfect embodiment of what a Father should be.  In fact, many women's relationships- or lack thereof, may present a stumbling block or impediment for faith in God- especially in today's modern dysfunctional society.  This book, over the course of eight chapeter- or eight weeks, systematically addresses and dispels all the stumbling blocks when women erroneously apply their imerfect and biased views of fathers and project them onto the almighty creator.  Through this book, the reader can get past that psychological hurdle and come to trust in God as the perfect heavenly father who can completely meet and fulfill every spiritual need. 
This book can be used as a groiup or individual bible study.  This bible study is based on the bible, and therefore can be trusted as an authority.  Relevant bible verses are included throughout so that the reader can followe along with God's word, side by side.  Platt has also written other relevant bible studies intended for women as well.  As a blogger for Navpress publishers I recieved a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this reveiw.  The opinions expressed are my own.
