Is the Bible Good for Women (a review)
People who name the titles of books need to have a marketing degree. There would be several ways you could market this book by Wendy Alsup, but I don’t think any would be as catchy without being condescending as this one.
Is the Bible Good for Women? Well, we would say of course it is. The author uses her upbringing and her theological worldview to answer so many questions that women especially have about the Bible. She wants to help her readers develop a Jesus (gospel) view of Scripture.
In her book she covers everything from Creation, submission, the Fall, how Jesus models “women’s issues” and how Paul advised the new church to work in regards to women, and everything in between. She engages hew audience, which could both be women who grew up in the church and are solid conservative women, or these women who are reading her book could be feminist believers (or unbelievers).
She overs her topics well, and always points to Jesus. So, whether you agree with her completely or not, it is up to you. But, I do think this book would be a good start in the topic of women and the church.
Thanks to Blogging for Books for the book. All opinions are my own. amazon
