Who is God? What is he like? Where can we find answers to our questions about him? The God of the universe wants us to know and love him, so he has revealed himself to us in his Word. The Good Portion: God explores what Scripture teaches about God in hopes that women will see his perfection, worth, magnificence, and beauty as they study his triune nature, infinite attributes, and wondrous works.
More than anything else, the aim of The Good Portion: God is for readers to glimpse God’s glory and glorify him in return. “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” (Romans 11:33–36).
Aiming to reveal God in all His glory, this in–depth volume (and series) is a rare find amongst the plethora of publications available for ministry to women.

“We can easily say, ‘Lord, I want to see your glory,’ but the way we see His glory is through an understanding of what He is like, which is the focus of Rebecca Stark’s book, and should be the focus of every Christian’s life. With the help of the Holy Spirit, understanding who God is and what He is like is the secret to growing in Christlikeness. I’m so excited to have The Good Portion: The Doctrine of God for Every Woman to teach me and others to how to meditate on God. This book is going to be an excellent discipling tool.”

“We don’t need a feminine doctrine of God, and Rebecca Stark does not give us one. She presents to us a robust introduction into theology that will lead the reader to adore, delight in, and praise God for who He is and what He has done. I’m glad to see Christian Focus call women to better theology. Stark doesn’t give us a theology for women, but a woman’s voice directing us all to the glory of God.”

This is an outstanding and accessible treatment of the attributes of God. I hope it will reach a wide readership and stimulate an interest in exploring the depths of the Christian faith.

“For many years Rebecca Stark has been one of my favorite bloggers. I’m thrilled to see her now extend her voice to books in this brilliant little volume on the attributes of our great God. It aptly displays so much of what I enjoy about her writing: it is theologically astute, devotionally inspiring, and powerfully written. I highly recommend it.”
