Longing for Paris by Sarah Mae
“What my longings, and why are they there?
We do not walk alone.”
The Catalyst, pages xxv, xxvi – Sarah Mae
Sarah’s parents lived on the outskirts of Paris conveying its beauty, the food and lives that created a yearning and goal to visit someday.
Desperately seeking what she meant to God as a woman, Sarah used 2 Samuel and the Book of Job from the Bible as guidance. Ms. Mae compared feelings and question, her longings and wants regarding her purpose as a woman in God’s eyes.
Delving deeper into the reading of this book, I began to regard I as more a Bible study guide than a personal journey. Maybe I was lost or did not understand in which direction the author was going, but for me, it seemed to go all over the place.
The Bible references were excellent reads with the stories of Job and David as partial guidelines. There are Search-Your-Heart questions in the last chapter concerning the trust you put in God’s hands with more scripture quotes. There is a Group Discussion Guide rounding out the book, which is good for study groups.
I recommend to those who may need an additional guide to the Bible for the Book of Job and 2 Samuel and group bible study guides.
I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission guidelines.
