Format: Paperback
My husband bought me this book at one of Steve Farrar's (Mary's husband) seminars. My husband and I highly recommend all of the books by this amazing Christian couple. It's hard to form a biblically based identity in today's world. In a society where all lifestyles are accepted, there's no good guidance on how to raise a Christian family. This book was hard to put down--it explains how our society has evolved into what it is today. It reminds us where we came from and gives suggestions about how we can reclaim our Christian heritage. Some of Mary's ideas will be hard to accept by people who don't want to hear the truth, but everything she says is right from the Bible and right from her heart. It's a great resource for Christian women.

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book for two reasons.

-The research done is scholarly and thorough throughout

-The scriptures used are in context and doctrinally sound

The first half is an excellent history of the feminist movement from a Christian perspective. The second half is priamarily a study of the principles of biblical womanhood found in Titus 2 and other scriptures.

This book affirmed my desire to remain in the home with my children despite the sacrifices.

It educated me on the lies of the the feminist movement that I hear almost daily- the most destructive lie being this:

"You can have it all"

No, you can't. You have to make choices.

I seriously doubt that reviewer "Penelope" has actually read this book. It's ideals, which are biblically sound and expositional, are the antithesis of the militant feminist movement. A movement which has proven to be an overwhelming failure.

This excellent book includes a practical history of militant feminism and an examination of authentic womanhood according to Scripture.

And, to borrow from the previous reviewer, it educated me on the lies of the the feminist movement, the most destructive lie being this:

"You can have it all"

No, you can't. No one can. You must choose.

As a mother of two toddlers, this book helped me realize just how important it is that I change diapers, clean house, read the same book twelve times, etc. At the end of the day, when my husband asks what I did today, with confidence I can say - I was a mom and a wife! It's a great book to read whenever those feelings of insecurity crop back up. My choice to be a wife and mother is fulfilling what God designed me for!

I've never been so challenged by an author before. This book caused me to re-evaluate the plans I've been making for graduate school, career, marriage, children, etc. I recommend it to any young woman in a transition period - it helps give God's perspective on traditional women's roles.

This book literally changed my life! It is a must read for every woman! Get ready for a paradigm shift. This book will challenge all of your assumptions about the history of women in our nation or what you never realized you assumed!

This book provides information and insight into what it means to be a women in our world. It offers you the opportunity to comtemplate yourself and your values and decide what you want to get and give from your time here. It is a book for all ages and stages - it clarified my unconsious desires and helped me to define my life, my love and my reason. I have limited biblical knowledge but just fell in love with what this book offered me.
