Editorial Reviews


'An astute, humorous and moving insight into the lives of women from Eve to the 21st century woman...An enormous amount of valuable research has gone into the writing of this book, including anecdotes of the lives of pioneering women, such as Gladys Aylwood and Mary Slessor, whose courage is earth-shattering and a profound lesson for us all. They prove that we can all have a voice and that a few can make a difference for many...I underlined pearls of wisdom on nearly every page!' -- Fiona Castle

'Michele Guinness discusses the important issues for Christians today, both women and men. Her writing is perceptive, informed and challenging -- a blend of personal experience and biblical and sociological insights -- full of the wisdom, spiced with wit, we have come to expect from her.' -- Bishop Michael Nazir- Ali

'A terrific tour de force. It will get under your skin, challenge your assumptions, make you laugh at your silly prejudices and dare you to live equally alongside the wonder that is woman.' -- Russ Parker

'A delightfully humorous biography. Graphic revelations and great insights. Challenging, very readable and refreshingly original. Sell your bed and buy this book! You will love it!' -- David Pytches

'If there is one book that will really serve to liberate women from centuries of male dominated Bible interpretation, it's this one! This book provides a truly emancipating reading experience -- both for women who have been bound by masculine misreadings, and for men who have misinterpreted the true picture of women provided in the Bible. I cannot recommend this book more enthusiastically. It is beautifully written and immensely perceptive. Its greatest strength lies in the fact that its author comes at the Bible texts from a Jewish perspective, thereby exposing the true context and meaning of Biblical passages about women. Every woman and man should read this!' -- Mark Stibbe

From the Back Cover

What does it mean to be a woman today? What have women inherited from their radical, risk-taking sisters of the past? And how does God view this half of humanity? Michele Guinness invites us on an adventure of discovery, exploring the biblical texts, the annals of history and the experiences of women today in search of the challenges and achievements, failures and joys, of women throughout the ages.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a must read for every woman who has ever struggled with her 'role' whether perceived, implied or imposed. Michele Guiness writes with humour, sharing her own experiences, good and bad. Her knowledge and research make this more than just a bedtime read. It is excellent for students of sociology, women's studies, psychology, gender study and book club discussions. I wanted to underline sentences and pearls of wisdom on every page. A timely book at a time when focus (rightly so) is turning on the plight of women in developing countries. Not a book for the narrow-minded and bigoted who want to keep women in the kitchen, breeding, feeding and cleaning. It's a celebration of womanhood in all its facets complementing and coming alongside male-hood for the sake of Humankind. An enlightened and enlightening book.
