    If you ve ever read and been confused about some of the verses in the Bible concerning women, like those in Deut 21 or 1 Cor 14, this book Women God seeks to provide clarity I appreciate that this book was written as it s such an important and relevant topic, with the trending MeToo, TimesUp, and The Future is Female Does God see women as equal to men The author does a good job of giving a big picture view, starting with Genesis and threading the gospel focus throughou...

    What does resonate with all we ve seen in the scriptures is that women are to be valued as God s image bearers along with men and that all believers, filled and empowered with the Spirit of the risen Christ, together serve him until he comes again God s ordering of male and fe...

    Highly recommend, especially for women engaged in any kind of ministry to other women Has one of the best answers that I ve ever read to the idea that a woman being a helper equates with a lesser role.

    I do not envy the task Kathleen Nielson had in writing this book It had to be like navigating a minefield But overall she did a fantastic job of getting to the heart of these issues in a way that magnifies the truth and authority of Scripture and also acutely feels the pain and hurt often associated with such issues.This book tackles all sorts of debated and contested issues when it comes to women and God what do we make of God through those hard and graphic OT stories of polygamy, rape, and other abuses of women what does God really say about the woman s role in the home and the church how do we even deal with the fact that we refer to God as Father and Son and why not Mother and Daughter , and much Nielson is writing from what would be considered a complementarian viewpoint but I appreciated that her views are far from the hyper complementary ideas I have often encountered in complementarian environments I appreciated the way she acknowledged single women, women in ministry, and women with strong leadership skills Overall while I agree with all of her conclusions I sometimes struggled with how she got there In her defense she had a lot to cover and not a lot of space to do it in so I think that s where some of the jumps occurred It constantly felt like she wanted to say but couldn t ...

    This book was wonderful and timely I have perused other books on women lately only to be disappointed in their treatment of scripture Nielson s theology, application, and understand of women s inner workings was on point She was fair, but critical She did not throw the baby out with the bathwater m...

    Kathleen Nielson travels risky terrain over which few are willing go This book provides biblically sound answers for difficult questions concerning women s roles touching all aspects of life I will mention that Nielson is a remarkable wordsmith and I find her writing absolutely delightful She explains that this book is not an answer to the world s voices that often lump Christianity in the general category of religions, in discussions of sexism that is unfair attitudes or treatments based on one s biological sex But she does intend to show her readers the goodness of the God who made us specifically the goodness of God to His female image bearers And that she does beautifully The author guides us through the narrative of Scripture beginning with the creation of the first male and female She unpacks the giftedness of strong godly women such as the judge and prophetess Deborah who gave herself to serving God in a critically hard time in Israel s history Then there is the unlikely Moabite prostitute Rahab who plays an amazing role in Israel s history and ultimately is included in the lineage of the promised Savior.The chapters entitled...
