Overview

Written with poetic rhythm, a prophetic voice, and a deeply biblical foundation, this loving yet fearless book urges today's church to move beyond man-made restrictions and fully welcome women's diverse voices and experiences. A freedom song for the church. Sarah Bessey didn't ask for Jesus to come in and mess up all her ideas about a woman's place in the world and in the church. But patriarchy, she came to learn, was not God's dream for humanity. Bessey engages critically with Scripture in this gentle and provocative love letter to the Church. Written with poetic rhythm, a prophetic voice, and a deeply biblical foundation, this loving yet fearless book urges today's church to move beyond man-made restrictions and fully welcome women's diverse voices and experiences. It's at once a call to find freedom in the fullness, hope, glory, and work of Christ, and a very personal and moving story of how Jesus made a feminist out of her.

Reviews

I love writers who are insightful enough to be cynical but choose not to be. I love books that help me see things I'd never noticed before--in life, in myself, in others, in the Bible, in Jesus. I love writing that makes reading enjoyable and easy, because I know how hard it is to write that way. For these reasons and more, I love Jesus Feminist . It's not 'just a woman's book.' In fact, it's the kind of book that will help both women and men see how unhelpful that distinction is. --Brian D. McLaren, author, speaker, activist
