From the Inside Flap
Yet God created mankind in His image and likeness; He made them male and female because the fullness of God can be expressed only by both the masculine and feminine attributes. When women are not honored, or when they are oppressed in society, half of the nature of God Himself is "imprisoned" in the magnificence of femininity. God commissioned both sexes to co-reign over the planet. It was only after the fall of mankind and the ensuing curse that men were given rulership over women.
When Jesus died on the cross, He destroyed the curse. But two thousand years later, most of the Church is still relegating women to the ball and chain of Eve's deception. Instead of the Body of Christ leading a revolution that honors women, the Church has actually been the catalyst for centuries of patriarchal oppression. In fact, in the last hundred years, while the world has begun to champion women and give them places of leadership in politics, business, education and every realm of society, parts of the Body of Christ will not even allow women to be elders in local congregations.
We have failed to realize that Jesus founded the women's liberation movement more than two thousand years ago. Isn't it high time the Church of Jesus Christ led the revolution?

From the Back Cover
In the Garden, woman was taken out of man to stand by his side and co-reign with him. But Satan's schemes have robbed women of their rightful identity, disempowering and defacing them. The world aches for God's original partnership to be brought into balance once more--and it can be.
Join Kris Vallotton for an extraordinary journey of eye-opening insight, including
• God's true plan and purpose for women
• Jesus' radical teachings and care for women
• men's important role in restoring women

God fashioned women to reign alongside men. Jesus set women free to be beautiful and powerful. It's time for us, as daughters and sons of the King, to rule together in glory again. Will you join the revolution?

"Vallotton presents a biblical perspective on the role of women. It is thoroughly grounded in Scripture and addresses teaching found frequently in the church that has oppressed women over centuries, either through limiting their roles or by allowing them equality based only on embracing masculine traits. Rather than being condemnatory or confrontational, this book simply presents a biblical view of what a woman is and where she is called to be....I'm blessed to have been in a church which does empower its women. That wasn't always the case, however, and I deeply enjoyed diving into the Bible with Kris as my guide to find out what God really says about men and women. It has enhanced my understanding of who I am as a woman and inspires me to instill that in the young women around me. This book is about truth and therefore would be great written by anyone. However, I realized that the fact it was written by a man and it is a man calling me into my divine design, it brought a deeper level of healing than I'd anticipated as well sending me on a journey digging deeper into God's heart....I recommend it for all women and anyone who knows any women!" --Revival Magazine
"Fashioned to Reign considers the ever-lasting deception Christians face regarding women's role and purpose: a deception fostered by evil and which is not of God's plan. The disempowerment of women was the devil's idea - and God's true plan for women is very different. Woman was, in fact, designed to stand by man's side and reign with him, not under him - and Fashioned to Reign covers God's ultimate intention for women. Packed with scripture and information throughout, Fashioned to Reign is a powerful analysis perfect for any Christian collection." --Midwest Book Review
