Long story short, this book is basically an attempt by seriously disturbed fringe sects of the religious right to rape our minds.
...actually, I may even have to apologize to the religious right. This is far beyond their craziness.
I sincerely hope that anyone who decides to read this book is separated from the rest of society by means of a dungeon or some other medieval torture rack, as the concepts discussed in the book are clearly an attempt to bring us back to the dark ages.
Thank you mom for divorcing the sick bastard (dad) who exposed us to this trash!!!
Truth be told, it was this guy's arrogance that really did him in for me, as well as the fact that some women have really been hurt by this. On the first page alone, Rice mentions a friend of his who wisely told him that he was wasting his breath and that no woman would listen to him. Rice says, "Well, this man was mistaken, and I have proved it. Many women now wear their hair long because they've heard me teach and preach on the subject and some women have even refused teaching Bible classes with students of both sex because the Bible outrightly forbids them to teach men."
Firstly, Rice, the only Bible that condemns women teaching men is the one that exists in your own mind. Even if the Bible did forbid women pastoring, it sure as heck doesn't forbid them teaching men. Just ask Deborah, Huldah, and Phoebe.Read more ›
Ok, so the problem is that he has a very false idea of God and man. Rice says that God is a masculine God. He fails to see that there are positive attributes that tend to be more femenine-like gentle, loving care and mercy. To deny that God (who is above gender) can have any feminine attributes denies God's ability to be gentle and loving.
Rice takes this further and says that only men are made in the image of God. Wow...how false. What a horrible thing that Rice twisted the Word of God into a way in which to enslave women.
I'm not a feminist. I actually have longish hair. I just hate it when men twist God's Word into a way in which to subjegate women.

It is nice to read a book in which the author takes a Biblical stand rather than a popular stand. This is so much better than the drivel that passes for Christian books now. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Dekon
Excellent Biblical analysis. Rebels will NOT like this book. It's about submission. Those with a tender yielded heart to God will receive it.Published on December 31, 2011 by Examiner
