Creating with God: The Holy Confusing Blessedness of Pregnancy
Number of pages: 208
Creating with God is a boldly truthful, sometimes funny, and deeply spiritual account of where babies come from and where babies take us. Jobe reads the Bible through the lens of her back-to-back pregnancies and finds that God shows up in pregnancy when we least expect it. Weaving together biblical reflection, her own story, and the stories of the moms around her, Jobe reveals the ways in which pregnancy is at the heart of God’s work in the world. She invites her readers to see the image of Jesus in pregnant women, feel God abiding in the work of pregnancy, and to consider the ways that pregnancy can train us in the very practices we need to live a life of faith.
