I plan on sharing this book with my grandma who often took me to church. Often, she overlooks gender in the Bible, but I think the lessons would help her see more worth in herself and womankind.
If you grew up in a church and feel like women are overlooked, this is a great book to check out. The exercises will certainly help.
By intertwining scripture verses, psychology, thoughts, temptations and intentions, the author speaks of women as God’s works of art. Focusing on the Bible’s way of interacting with others and obeying Scripture, mainly (referencing Jesus’ way), the author blends in her work selective quotes, philosophies/teachings, etc., of famous individuals such as: John Paul II, Faustina (A Polish Catholic Saint) and takes much from insights from Virginia Satir, her book speaks to the cultural and personal identity of a female, offering that respect and love is what is needed in both genders, male and female.
With such chapters as: Eve-Inferior From the Start?; Blaming Eve; Embracing Adam and Embracing Eve; The Legacy of Eve (Embracing her strengths), Who Am I Anyway?; Into the Future; Obedience; Silencing Eve; Staying Connected with Eve-Mindfulness; and the Body of Eve - Each chapter includes journaling exercises and questions to reflect on the material covered. Intricate introspection into Eve and her legacy, offer how women have been affected by the subconscious of the depiction of Eve, coupled with cultural insight into a woman’s place in society and within herself.
Assessing what the original “essence” of a woman might be, readers reflect on their own personal journeys. Written from her observation from a Christian background from women who encountered a lack of self-esteem, love and acceptance, her book provides key points of view that one should consider and compare to the truth of the Bible. The author helps readers to discover true identity, personal strength and confidence from a viewpoint in which they are as God’s great creation.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book personally, it is written in a conversational style I found easy to engage with. The poems, scripture selections, and questions to enhance your personal journey are quite relevant. While I am not a follower of the Roman Catholic faith, but I valued the comments from Pope John Paul II.
I appreciate that Bozena tackled the controversial subjects forthrightly. I agree with her conclusions about a great deal of past abuse of spouses by mishandling Holy Scripture.
If equality and spiritual issues are important to you, then this is a book you will want to read.
I give this book 4.9 stars, the score would have been higher except for a couple of spelling errors.
