    This book has been a great clarification tool for me I felt like the title was a little severe initially, but then had to agree with the male author that wrongs done need to be acknowledged and owned up to before healing and restoration can take place His explanation of commonly misused or misinterpreted scripture were enlightening, from a historical and cultural standpoint as well as from the angle of scriptural study I m fortunate enough to have been subject to only very mild forms of fema This book has been a great clarification tool for me I felt like the title was a little severe initially, but then had to agree with the male author that wrongs done need to be acknowledged and owned up to before healing and restoration can take place His explanation of commonly misused or misinterpreted scripture were enlightening, from a historical and cultural standpoint as well as from the angle of scriptural study I m fortunate enough to have been subject to only very mild forms of female repression within the church I grew up in, but I ve been witness to plenty of ridiculous things in recent years that left me with the desire to cram a little biblical and cultural education down the gullets of certain haughty and legalistic folks I ve encountered Second hand righteousness with no love attached to it has got to be one of the deadliest, most distorted representations of the church and one which far too many people have been injured by over the years It s little wonder why Christianity gets hurled with no small amount of hostility into the discard pile any time someone brings up the thin blanketing concept of organized religion.While a bit dry in some places, the overall content is to the point and well researched He brings up biblical accounts that you won t ever hear read or explained in most churches The structuring of the chapters gives you the freedom to skip around and address the lies and perpetuated issues that you personally have the most interest in They do build on themselves to some extent, but they also stand alone

    This book is excellent for Christian non feminists who have little to no understanding of the issue If youre like me and you re a nerd for anything having to do with philosophy, hermeneutics, and feminism, then this book is going to be pretty basic for you While the author certainly takes modern evangelical culture to task, the writing style is very gentle and most complementarian folk would probably not find it too threatening I would say the author himself has a pretty conservative down to This book is excellent for Christian non feminists who have little to no understanding of the issue If youre like me and you re a nerd for anything having to do with philosophy, hermeneutics, and feminism, then this book is going to be pretty basic for you While the author certainly takes modern evangelical culture to task, the writing style is very gentle and most complementarian folk would probably not find it too threatening I would say the author himself has a pretty conservative down to earth attitude, so they won t feel like they are being talked down to It s very simple, lucid, easy to read, and touches on some legitimate questions people usually have If you ve never studied this topic before, then chances are this book will help you learn a lot about the Bible and church history that you didn t know It s also a great book for teens

    I was enjoying this book until page 35 when he talks about poverty being the tragic curse that rules every pagan culture He goes on to say the curse of poverty on man was reversed through Jesus work on the cross At this point I realized Lee Grady who I ve never heard of before must be a health, wealth prosperity teacher I had no interest in continuing his book so I abandoned it I was enjoying this book until page 35 when he talks about poverty being the tragic curse that rules every pagan culture He goes on to say the curse of poverty on man was reversed through Jesus work on the cross At this point I realized Lee Grady who I ve never heard of before must be a health, wealth prosperity teacher I had no interest in continuing his book so I abandoned it

    Even though I cannot agree with everything the author wrote, I enjoyed reading it The author is very sincere and appears to be well researched While he does not bother to hide his prejudices, he does not excuse them either I completely disagree with his contention that all secular feminists support abortion That s like saying all Christians believe in stoning or all Christians prefer the Old Testament to the New.

    Greatly enjoyed reading this book Some of these are lies I ve had to work through over the 20 years as a Christian because they are lies the church has taught many of us The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I don t necessarily agree with every single aspect AND the one thing that drove me nuts in this book was his use of the word Palestine to describe the area where Jesus lived No Palestine would have been incorrect then and now.

    So this is a bit of a tangle to review on the one hand, it s super fabulous that this is written by a white evangelical for white evangelicals to prove that women are gasp real people really called by God to really lead in the real Church And he also tackles the idea that women are in some way incomplete without a man and how that is so short sighted for God s power among God s people an argument that the whole of the Church often misses as it shuffles unmarried women around because it does So this is a bit of a tangle to review on the one hand, it s super fabulous that this is written by a white evangelical for white evangelicals to prove that women are gasp real people really called by God to really lead in the real Church And he also tackles the idea that women are in some way incomplete without a man and how that is so short sighted for God s power among God s people an argument that the whole of the Church often misses as it shuffles unmarried women around because it doesn t know what to do with them And he dismantles the idiocy of the Proverbs 31 concept of womanhood, which I will clap for until I can t feel my hands any because that drives me nuts.On the other hand, it s written by a white evangelical who goes way right sometimes, actually talking about modern feminism as man hating infanticide at its heart and other such fallacies So I can t really cheer for that, which is why this gets the relatively neutral three stars.But oh, how I can cheer for the fact that this guy finally figured out that God calls women on purpose and is telling other guys on their own level That s one of the things that is missing from a lot of liberal theological discourse Scriptural explanation for premises But this totally takes the main verses used to silence women in church and dismantles them within Scriptural boundaries six million cheers for that.So it s a mixed bag and if you can t handle anything right wing, stay away If you can t handle anything right wing, there s something wrong that isn t this book But this is a fabulous way to talk about the rightful place of women in Church leadership and I would recommend it It has crap discussion questions after every chapter that you re welcome to ignore, but the main text is solid

    This is a good book, basically an argument in support of women s ordination from a Pentecostal perspective, but it also has some great thoughts about male pride, domestic abuse, and prejudice against women in the church in matters that do not concern ministry leadership Recommended to Christian women who want to be all God created them to be but have been stifled by their churches and husbands Would also be helpful to men who are curious to knowabout how women really feel when they are l This is a good book, basically an argument in support of women s ordination from a Pentecostal perspective, but it also has some great thoughts about male pride, domestic abuse, and prejudice against women in the church in matters that do not concern ministry leadership Recommended to Christian women who want to be all God created them to be but have been stifled by their churches and husbands Would also be helpful to men who are curious to knowabout how women really feel when they are looked down upon and treated badly and it s written by a man who has not experienced this personally, so it isn t judgmental
