Title Tuesday: He Calls You Beautiful

Welcome to  Title Tuesday, my favorite day of the week! This day is dedicated to book suggestions and reviews. I write this portion of my blog because I am a big believer in the motivational speaker Charlie Jones' quote which says, "You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” I try to meet as many new people as possible and to read everything I can. This is my way of sharing that information with you. If you are interested in understanding my rating system for books you can read my Book Review Explanation here and What I Believe here. If you want to check out what I am currently reading or what I want to read next, friend me on Goodreads! With all that being said, lets jump in!
I was given a free copy of this book
in exchange for my unbiased review. 
All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, many women (especially Christian women!) are looking longingly to romance novels, rom-coms, and online dating to fill a void in their lives. But, did you know that none of those places holds a candle to the romance story of the Bible? 

Today I want to share with you about a book that is solely geared towards women searching for love. In Dee Brestin's book, "He Calls You Beautiful" we take an in depth look at the greatest love story ever told and how it impacts our daily walk with Christ. 

I know what most of you are probably thinking. "What does the Bible have to do with a love story?" That is a fabulous question and Brestin does a fabulous job of pulling the focus of the Song of Solomon back to the love of our Creator. I don't want to give away too much and ruin the book for you, but I can say that Brestin explains it in such a way that you don't walk away feeling like you need a degree in Eschatology  in order to understand how this book of the Bible fits in with the rest. She breaks the book down into bite size portions and the Bible study at the end of each chapter is very helpful in making sure that you really understand the text. These questions could be done individually or in a group setting. 

Overall, I give He Calls You Beautiful a solid A+. This book shows us the incredible, sacrificial love of God through the love relationship between a man and a woman. Brestin does a great job of pointing the reader back to Christ with the Bible study portion at the end of each chapter. I can say that this book is THE VERY BEST study on the Song of Solomon that I have ever done. I look forward to reading more of Dee Brestin's work in the future! 


  1. Like you, I read as many books as I can. I enjoyed your review of He Calls You Beautiful. I have read one other book by Dee Brestin and appreciate her knowledge of the Bible. Blessings!

    1. Carol, what do you like to read? Do you keep track of them, and if so, how?
