The Liberating Truth: How Jesus Empowers Women

I recently wrote a book about women. I thought it'd be a great way to celebrate International Women's Day by suggesting that people get educated about gender issues and the gospel. Many in the western world simply fail to recognize the way women are systemically oppressed around the world... and until we do, we won't have a gospel that is true to it's promise. The good news is all about setting people free, declaring dignity to all - letting people know that Jesus came to make the world a better place to live - right now, as it is in heaven. And I can guarantee there is no public stoning, female circumcision or sexual slavery in heaven. Jesus is a feminist. There is no question about this (I've written a whole chapter to back it up - so go on and read it!). :-) So, if you feel like changing the world and you are wondering where to start - start with women.

Fuck you bitch.

"A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet."[1 Tim. 2:8]

Hear that? Maybe you would if you shut your fucking mouth for once and listened to God.

thanks danielle - i will track your book down. it will be great to read something affirming about women and the gospel - maybe i've missed loads of stuff over the last few years/decades but it does seem to be an issue that doesn't have the prominence i think it should. And most of the younger women i associate with at church don't see it as an issue at all anymore so putting it in a wider social/global context is a very valuable thing to do. Thanks, amanda
