Adolf Hitler wrote: "The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning." (Adolf Hitler, "Mein Kampf" trans. JAMES MURPHY. Abbots Langley, February, 1939).

In an age and time when feminism is taking over America and rational reasoning is being replaced by sentiment and emotion, there is one woman who has a clear rational and Biblical perspective on the female gender. That person is Rebecca J

I found the first two-thirds of the book to be un-engaging (difficult to read and confusing as to where she's going), and the last third to be a page turner.

Jones makes some good points in her book, but overall I found her writing hard to follow and was sometimes puzzled or troubled by her conclusions. This was a book I had to make myself finish.

I highly recommend this book to any woman who is struggling with the idea of what the Bible says a woman's role is to be.

The women's bible study that I attend is going to be reading this book together in the Fall.
