Editorial Reviews

Review

"Griffith finds in these women a quiet strength that feminist discourse has all but ignored."--"Mother Jones

From the Inside Flap

"Vivid, lucid, and well-written. I came away with a better understanding of how the specific realities of being 'submissive wives' are negotiated, constructed, challenged, and transformed."—Lynn Davidman, author of Tradition in a Rootless World

"Griffith's deft portrayal is a unique and important contribution to the study of Pentecostal spirituality and a compelling model for the retelling of women's religious experience in twentieth-century American culture."—Margaret Bendroth, author of Fundamentalism and Gender, 1875 to Present

Format: Paperback
I just devoured this book sitting in a bookstore. The book is revolutionary for feminism: a great critique of feminist stereotypes of religiosity with real life stories. It opens up feminism to religion and religion to feminism by drawing out parallels ignored in dominant discourses.

As I read some of the stories, I had tears streaming down my face. I was completely engrossed by both the ethnographic elements and the theoretical arguments. Great job!

Format: Hardcover
This book is easy to read for a scholarly study. The author makes clear her own mind set in studying the subject and has succeeded in objectively describing her observations. I found it to be an interesting and informative book about a group of people with whom I have little contact and about whom I am inclined to have many prejudices. Ms. Griffith has made their interests clear and given me at least a small understanding of their world view.

Format: Paperback
Griffith does what I thought was impossible -- makes me feel sympathetic towards "submissive" fundamentalist women. This was a required text for one of my courses at a pretty liberal seminary. It was good for all of us to remind ourselves that "the other side" is made up (mostly) of normal, well-meaning human beings of good faith.
