Book Review: True Beauty

Today's review is on True Beauty by Carolyn Mahaney and Nicole Whitacre
This was a re-read for me, I had read this book two years ago, but I really wanted to read it again because it is really good. And it was still really good the second time around.

This book is written by Carolyn Mahaney and her daughter, Nicole Whitacre. It is very short, it is just over 100 pages, but yet there is so much truth packed into it on the topic of beauty, especially as to what that should mean to believers. It was grounded in Scripture, every point was backed up with Scripture, which means that they weren't just sucking it out of their thumbs, it came from some serious studying.

True Beauty contains a lot of advice for Christian women and how we are to view beauty in light of our Christian worldview. The main argument that is repeated throughout the book is that true beauty is meant to reflect and bring glory to God. This book deals with the theological aspects of beauty and gives practical tips of how this should affect our lives.

One of the main things I appreciated about this book is that it didn't say that women have to wear this or that in order to be beautiful, rather it looked at the heart because that is where true beauty starts. It looked at how our views of beauty are from the heart and that when he have a distorted view of beauty, our hearts are distorted towards God

I am giving this 4/5 Stars because it was really good, but I felt like it was too short and I wish there had been more. I highly recommend this for every Christian women.

Happy Reading,
Janelle L. C.
