About this item
Is it possible to embrace the inherent dignity of womanhood while still cherishing the Bible? In light of certain troubling passages of Scripture, many women, even those inside the church, have questioned whether the Bible is good for women. They wonder if an orthodox understanding of the Bible is threatening or even downright harmful to women. In Is the Bible Good for Women? Bible teacher and theologian Wendy Alsup offers tools for interpreting tough passages surrounding the female identity in Scripture. She demonstrates that a Jesus-centered understanding of the larger narrative of Scripture weaves a connected, coherent story that gives context to individual passages about or to women. After reading this text, women will have a better understanding of Scripture as a whole, understand the noble ways God speaks to and about women in its pages, and be inspired by a Bible that is good for women and therefore good for the world.
