About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
She gives a critical view of past feminist thiking - everything from women hating their bodies, to the sexism within nature (pregnancy is harder on the women than it is on men).
However, in the Bible, unlike some fundamentalists point out, she argues that women are always seen as the stronger sex - Mary Magdalene being the only follower who stayed and saw the first ressurection. Even the Church - at least in the eyes of Catholic teaching - is a woman in the apocalypic sense. She gives great examples of saints, and ends with meditations on meditations over Mary, the Christian form of femininity.
In her eyes, she asks, "Who is doing morre good today, Mother Teresa or the U.S. Conference of Bishops?"
A good read for anyone wanting to give a positive view of women in the Christian light.
I do not read anything without having a yellow (yellow ONLY!) highlighter nearby. I highlight favorite sentences and passages in EVERYTHING I read, that includes fiction and even magazines.Read more ›
In the beginning all the negative quotes about women were overwhelming, but by the end I felt very encouraged. I've been getting my mom and friends to read it, as well. Every Christian woman should!
