This review is from: A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head, and Calling Her Husband 'Master' (Paperback)
I ordered this book because of the author's witty blog, and really didn't know what I was in for. Her writing is engaging and fun. Sure, as a theological conservative, I was a bit unnerved at some of the early parts of the book, and for that matter, some of the endorsers of her book. But I am, unfortunately, one of those oddball women who have felt called to preach (or prophesy with my head covered if I must) and so I was curious where the book would go. What I found was an endearing adventure. I don't agree with all of her theology; I don't need to. But the book was a fun, and even informative, exploration of the Biblical take on womanhood. The grace and humor that she uses, her transparency when she admits to finding herself in the fetal position on the kitchen floor, even the self deprecating charm, creates an atmosphere of hospitality that invites us to examine our own prejudices and insecurities of who each of us are, or thinks that we should be, as women. Read the book. Enjoy it. And relax, because Jesus will still love you afterward. Maybe you will even love yourself a little bit more! We are Eshet Chayil!

This book is nothing more than theological mucky-muck. "And relax, because Jesus will still love you?" I would warn not to tempt our Lord with that statement. This book is an offense to God and His word...her approach is clearly secular.

I would challenge you to examine *your* theology with that statement, Mtn. Girl. The Bible says, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." I'm sure the Apostle Paul's declaration extends to reading 'secular' books.

Is that kind of crap that passes for deep thought in your school?
