biblicalwomanhoodA Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans was a book I was unsure of picking up. Possibly for some of the reasons she mentions in her book.

But I’m glad I did.

Reading this book you will learn things about the Bible. You will laugh. You will sit in awe. You will wonder.

From rules around cleanliness, submission, justice, grace and many more over the course of the year you will gain insight on verses in the Bible. You will see how over time some of them have been used out of context to keep women from fully using their gifts in the church and how others are used to lift women up!

As Rachel takes you through the ups and downs of a challenging year of study and faithfulness you will be there with her in her journey. And I believe you will take something from it too.

Eshet Chayil!
