Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World (Gift Edition):
Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life

by Joanna Weaver

      Amen for Joanna Weaver's hardcover edition of her popular 2002 paperback. Targeted for women, this book is a perfect tonic for anyone looking for a roadmap to find inner peace and serenity. Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is chock-full of shaded boxes, containing titles such as: "Top Ten Ways to Tame Your Worry Habit" (and who doesn't need those?). The way spirituality is woven into this contemporary classic is compelling: the relation to the Bible is such that it re-enforces the author's tips on finding spiritual balance in a chaotic world.

If you're seeking a way to create the time for your daily walk with God, take the time to seek out this book. Not an overly religious person, this reviewer was moved to deepen his exploration of the Bible, as a result of this important new title. Ms. Weaver is a pastor's wife and contributes articles to Focus in the Family, Guideposts, and HomeLife. Highly recommended for Bible study or adult religion groups of any faith.
