Book Review: Unexpected Love

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous to begin this book.  This is an author I'm unfamiliar with and I was afraid it would be fluffy.

Wow, was I wrong!  This book has SO much specific content on each passage presented, each women discussed and most interestingly the historical information that helps the reader to gain a deeper understanding of the specifics surrounding each relationship discussed.

Coleman takes the reader through a variety of different women who all have very specific encounters with Jesus.  Some encounters were years long, others were simple one time conversations.  Each encounter shows us a consistency in Jesus, he was caring and respectful towards women.

I appreciated the authors thoughts on some of the unanswered questions, mainly the "whys" and I also appreciated the authors attention to detail regarding the historical details of the days these encounters occurred. 

I would recommend this book as a book study/Bible study, or for someone who really wants to dig deeper into a Jesus conversations with women.
