A book all women and perhaps all Christians need to read. It is helpful and insightful. Ashcroft openly speaks to women about the struggles we face of which we are often not even aware. It reminds us that we need to sit much longer at Jesus' feet doing what cannot be taken away from u. (Moody). Some friends and I organized a women's group in which we discussed a chapter a week. We all found it to be eye-opening and helpful as we each worked through our various issues concerning love, money, sex, etc. from a Christian point of view. Recommended for Baby Boomer women (like Ashcroft) and GenXers (like me) alike.

The book is written by a liberal Episcopal priest with a feminist tilt. The author relies too much upon psychology, sociology and feminist sources and not enough upon good Biblical exegesis. The author also tends to exaggerate what the conservative church teaches in order to justify some of her arguments.

The book brings up some interesting issues, but fails to provide good Biblical answers.

Shared this book in our local bible study group. A great starter to prompt sharing in an intimate way with God's Word as a guiding solution.

This book had some good, true points. But, for the most part, the author's opinions were outdated. I only recommend it if you don't mind reading some outdated opinions about what women's roles are.

The author talks honestly about things that most other Christian writers skip over or even poo-poo. I'm not sure how many solutions are in this book, but I was glad to find out that I wasn't alone in my criticism of the church's tendency to ignore certain issues and exacerbate others. For example, she talks about how the church takes the idea that a woman is nothing without a man and usually makes it worse.

I don't know that there's anything new in this book for feminists but it talks about the value of women from a Christian perspective, and this is something that Christian women desperately need in my opinion. This book is an excellent starting point, an excellent place to start the discussion--even if it doesn't necessarily offer a tremendous number of solutions. And I'm not sure it doesn't.

As for the other criticism of it being simplistic? Maybe so. But for the Christian woman who is deliberately shielded from the idea that part of the reason she's not feeling that interested in sex with her husband or a failure because she's not married is due to the church's absorption of secular culture's idea of what women are supposed to be rather than Christ's idea of what a woman is supposed to be, it might be an eye-opener. So, a simple start may be just what the ultimate doctor, Christ, ordered.
Wat!?
Unfortunately I bought this book thinking it would be helpful with a "real" feminist point of view for my women's group. Not so! Women, save your money, buy something else! Mary Ellen you're no feminist.
