In his revised and updated book, which includes testimonials, Lee grady boldly proclaims the truth of the gospel: that men and women are appointed by god and empowered by Him.

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...more
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 know more about how women really feel when they are l...more

wow. the truest/ incredible eye opening thing i have ever read. everyone should read this. men and women... especially women and young girls. completely changed my life, and i cant go back or ignore it.
excellent expose, encouragement and support.
freedom here! know the truth and the truth sets free...
Literally, I thank God for this book.
This book was really helpful and given from a very Christian prospective. It was empowering toward women without diminishing the value of men. My two major complaints about the book were 1) I didn't like his demonizing opinion of other churches core beliefs and 2) he answered a lot of "who" and "what" questions for women but not many "how." Meaning, he taught men how to be more loving and Christian to women. But he talked about how career women can still be Christian missionaries and I think tha...more
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...more

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.
Loved this book. Even though I didn't have issues on this topic, what wonderful insight on the history and perspective of the times. (Sally, I really think you would enjoy reading it too.)
This book should be required reading for ALL church leaders, pastors, teachers, administrators. Grady's argument is sound and easily read.
i enjoyed this book and come back to it from time to time but do not agree w all its interpretations.
