Addresses ten specific issues that women face and shows their biblical solutions. These issues are the feminist influence, the role of women in the church, trials, gossip and slander, idolatrous emotional attachments, manipulation, hurt feelings, vanity, PMS, and legalism. The solutions are clear, God-honoring, and very practical in their application.
"Martha Peace is one of my all-time favorites among women's authors or among any of those writing to women! She not only is solid biblically, but she has a winsome way of expressing important truths."--Dorothy Kelley Patterson
Damsels in Distress clearly reveals God's principles for dealing with the common problems women face--first with others, then with themselves. Through its pages you will be stimulated to honestly analyze the problems through the grid of Scripture and then formulate practical applications that bring glory to God.--Pat Ennis, professor, The Master's College, author of Precious in His Sight and The Fine Art of Becoming a Godly Woman
In Damsels in Distress Martha exhorts her readers to an uncompromising standard of personal holiness. The chapters on the interpersonal sins of gossip and manipulation should be especially helpful for women who struggle with temptations to sinful speech.--Laura Hendrickson, M.D., biblical counselor and co-author of Will Medicine Stop the Pain?
Several years ago I was introduced to Martha Peace through her book The Excellent Wife. I remember then saying 'This is the best book I've ever read on the topic of the wife. Martha deals with real issues that wives face and offers real biblical solutions.' Damsels in Distress is also a book about real problems with real biblical solutions. This is a must for women who are struggling with deep-rooted sin and for women who desire to help other women to live victoriously in Christ Jesus.--Susan Heck, ACBC certified counselor; author and speaker
