Description
 

The gospel was never intended to restrain women from pursuing God or to prevent them from fulfilling their divine destiny. Religious and cultural traditions have limited and abused women for centuries. It is time for reformation! Using sound biblical scholarship, J. Lee Grady will help you understand how cultural bias, male pride, and misinterpretation of the Bible have paralyzed women who are called to do the work of Christ.

In this updated edition, you will discover:

  • Why Jesus went out of His way to minister to and disciple women
  • Why so many Christian women suffer in abusive marriages and why many pastors dont do anything about the problem
  • Why historic church leaders, including Martin Luther and John Calvin, believed women were inferior to men
  • How the Proverbs 31 woman has been misinterpreted to deny women opportunities in the workplace
  • How the apostle Paul, who told women in Corinth to be silent, also empowered many women to be church leaders
  • How the gospel of Jesus empowers women to claim their spiritual inheritance
