Book Description

On some level, we all know it: men and women are different. Sadly, for the most part, the church has primarily acknowledged those differences in the arenas of role and function, and generally done so in ways that women have experienced as limiting rather than life-giving. Consequently, many women have turned to popular feminine spirituality offerings outside the Christian faith for more appealing and effectual spiritual growth paradigms.But if we look closely at the stories of women in Scripture we can find a uniquely feminine spirituality woven into these ancient accounts.

In stories of modern women coupled with those of key Biblical women, author Janet Davis offers us a revolutionary and transformative new understanding of the feminine soul. With the warmth of story that opens the heart and questions designed to disrupt old patterns, this work is good news indeed, helping the blind to see, the lame to walk, and feminine souls to grow large and beautiful and free.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Intricately woven into the tapestry of the Scriptures, are the threads of a spirituality uniquely feminine. Through centuries of “one size fits all” kind of church teaching and interpretations of the Bible by men, the specific spiritual gifts of women have been neglected and underdeveloped. Author Janet Davis invites you to discover your true self in Scripture revealing your soul’s different struggles, growth dynamics, and gifts. The Feminine Soul empowers you with an understanding to reclaim, explore, and celebrate God’s true intentions for your purpose as a woman in the Kingdom.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Intense Look June 13, 2006
Format:Paperback
When I first read this book, I was at college with a group of women who loved discussing our faith and spirituality. This summer, I have read it again. And both times have been excellent.

Each chapter is structured, beginning with a thought to consider, followed by a personal story from the author's life. Then, Davis relates her real-life episode to the tale of a woman in Scripture. Each chapter concludes with several thought-provoking questions. This works wells for groups, as it guides the discussion. But I also find myself thinking about the answers to her questions from my life, from my life stories, and how I relate to the biblical women.

Easy to follow, and full of poetic diction, I found that this book was not only telling the author's story, but giving the reader the chance to chart and reflect on the way their spiritual self has been woven, torn, and repaired, creating an individual tapestry. I recommend this book to any woman!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strength, Voice, Feminine Soul April 8, 2006
Format:Paperback
With beauty and grace, Janet Davis illuminates the concept of the Feminine Soul. She unveils the gentle, but relentless, love of God for women as revealed through scripture narratives. In addition to her refreshing perspectives on Biblical women, Davis challenges today's women to examine our own lives in light of our calling as cherished daughters of God, encouraging us to embrace our own strength, our own voice, our own Feminine Soul.
