Headline: Not as Inspirational as Described
Proverbs 31: The Virtuous Black Woman by Russel Blake is a book of short stories, observations, psalms, and praises which uses Proverbs 31 as its central theme. This book aims to describe and show the value of a Virtuous Woman from a man’s perspective. Blake aims to be inspirational and uplifting, but it fell short in my opinion.
Some of the selections in the book have quite strong titles such as, “Black Woman Rising,” “Intensity,” and “Lioness,” but the substance of the piece does not match.  I admire Blake’s attempt to pay homage to African-American and his use of Biblical references throughout his pieces. I was able to read this book in one sitting but afterwards it did not leave me feeling inspired or uplifted.
This book was provided by the author for review purposes.
