For those who only read the first line of these reviews the main point is GO READ THIS BOOK BE YOU MAN OR WOMAN!

When I first saw the title I was certain it was going to be inspirational to women. As I read the first chapter I thought I would lose interest because I never really questioned what God thought about women. I never thought He favored men over women, or that He was "okay" with the way we are treated a lot of times. Nevertheless I was going to keep reading simply because I like to read

This is such an encouraging book. I've learned a lot from it. I believe that women are called to teach and preach, but until now, I wasn't really reassured. God definitely uses women, like men, for His purposes. This is revealed to how Jesus treated women.

These are the women featured in this book.

Mary, Mother of Jesus: She was not only the mother of Jesus, she was also His first disciple.

Mary Magdalene: Though she was trapped in spiritual darkness, she was the first witness to the resurrection.

Insightful--Sharon Jaynes discusses the serpent tempting Eve with the apple, who in turn, tempts Adam. This event foreshadowed the coming of Jesus, who would then crush the serpent with his heel. "Satan clearly understood that his demise would come from a woman's womb. And from the very beginning, Satan had been decked out in full battle array to destroy her."

But this is ultimately a love story between Jesus and every woman. Jaynes reminds us of our worth and our legacy to further God's Kingdom.

This book was eye opening. Mrs. Janes discusses different women in the Bible, highlighting their encounters with Jesus. Come to find out, Jesus often went out of His way to loose many women from their infirmaties and bring them center stage to teach others how to live. Mrs. Janes makes these women very relateable and by doing so she has helped transform my thinking.

So far, so good. This book debunks the myth that Christianity is a religion that oppresses women. Jesus broke down social barriers by reaching out to women, treating them with respect, and empowering them through physical and spiritual healing.

I really liked this book and got a lot of helpful and encouraging information out of it. I'll probably add more thoughts or favorite quotes later.
