Witty, Thought-Provoking, Faithful Writings,
This review is from: Gender: Men, Women, Sex , Feminism (Paperback)
This collection of essays is by far the best book that I have ever read on the topics of gender, sexuality, and the challenges/controversies/politics surrounding them. In this work, Frederica Mathewes-Green invites us into her life and challenges us to explore with her the practical and spiritual implications of male-female relationships, feminism, marriage, parenthood, abortion, homosexuality, etc. She has the keen ability to illustrate her views with unparalleled vividness and enthusiasm. Her stories are entertaining yet pertinent, faithful, but not preachy, and are always thought-provoking. It is no easy task for an author to remain faithful to her deepest convictions without coming across as being judgemental or haughty, yet Frederica always manages to pull it off flawlessly and with compassion. This is why I so highly recommend this book to everyone who has an opinion on the above topics regardless of which end of the political spectrum that they may find themselves at the moment. Mathewes-Green's ability to think out-of-the-box just might surprise a lot of people who think that they've heard just about everything on gender issues!
