Life-Changing Attitudes Mark the Lives of Inspiring Women from Yesterday to Today A godly woman is marked by a godly attitude. Dorothy Kelley Patterson looks to the Bible for the timeless principles of virtuous character sought by godly women today. BeAttitudes for Women is an interactive devotional commentary. – Interactive – You will be drawn to participate through appropriate charts, study maps, and opportunities to meditate on the meaning of the text. – Devotional – You will be richly blessed by the inspirational quotations, hymns, poems, and vignettes coupled with the experience of the many years Dorothy Kelley Patterson has spent living in a family and ministering to women. – Commentary – You will find the Bible comes alive through brief and readable commentary sections of explanation, including studies of key words, grammatical notes, historical allusions, and explanatory information. Virtues, from humility to courage, are carefully examined in the Bible and applied to today's culture, exploring the remarkable lives of some extraordinary women. Dorothy Kelley Patterson is first and foremost a homemaker–a wife, mother, and grandmother. She is also a successful writer and speaker with two earned doctorates in theology. As Professor of Theology in Women's Studies, she teaches courses in theology to women at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where her husband Paige is the president. A contributor to numerous journals and periodicals, she is the General Editor for The Women's Evangelical Commentary on the New Testament and the Woman's Study Bible and the author of books for women.
