Why Women Love Jesus So Much


Fibroid Girl, ninjas, football, cattle rustlers, Smokey Robinson, trophy wives, a government whore, innocent victims, guilty victims, the start of the red light district, a warrior woman leading an army general to victory, a baby daddy with 70 kids, a business woman supporting a man, a heifer, a dog in a box, a father setting his daughter on fire, a husband chopping his wife into 12 pieces and sending them around the country, a child of incest, an exorcism, a dead woman coming back to life, the sexual revolution, plain Janes, dealing with depression, jigsaw puzzles, alarm clocks, handcuffs, dysfunctional families, and the world’s most famous unwed teenage mother.


It’s all in here – along with the scriptures explaining it!


Far from the typical book about women in the Bible.


23 Bible women tell their own stories in an easy, conversational style.  Dr. Lewis draws parallels between those women and their 21st century counterparts – exploring the phenomenal differences that are possible in each life when Jesus is on the scene.

These fresh, new takes on women, in and out of the Bible, yield some unpredictable perspectives that can help anyone trying to move forward – regardless of how badly she or he has messed up.


Everyone you know is in here somewhere, including you . . . whether you are into Jesus or not.

Maximize the Teaching/Learning Dynamic
4th Edition


Building on the development and psychology principles that undergird the learning process, Maximize the Teaching/Learning Dynamic focuses on understanding, recognizing, and using appropriate teaching strategies for given students in given situations.

This book is not designed to provide complete knowledge of educational psychology, learning styles, or teaching methods; it is designed to provide a working knowledge.  Used alone or in conjunction with other texts, Maximize the Teaching/Learning Dynamic cuts straight to the chase and explains:

  • This is what the concept is.

  • This is what it looks like in action.

  • This is when you should use it.

  • This is when you shouldn’t use it.

  • This is how it relates to other concepts.

Drawing from almost two decades of teaching differentiated learners in a variety of environments, Lewis structured this book as a practical tool for mastering content by applying what is learned.  In addition to classroom observations, learner activities include case studies, puzzles, poetry, movies, lesson plan critiques, personal reflections, internet research, and other exercises that model the content being covered.

Use Maximize the Teaching/Learning Dynamic to examine your own life and experience for insights into how theories work in the real world. . . and discover the magic 8-minute movie clip that embodies hundreds of the psychological concepts and teaching strategies that most students memorize, but fail to master!
