In her first book, blogger Bessey describes her personal spiritual journey and advocates for a Church that fully embraces the equality of women. Through what she often calls “narrative theology,” Bessey writes about how Jesus led her to become a feminist. She explores the controversial biblical passages that are often used to limit women’s leadership, both at home and within the Church, and encourages readers to challenge traditional interpretations. She asserts that “patriarchy is not God’s dream for humanity” and asks the Christian church to participate in a redemptive movement that dismantles unjust systems and inequalities. Bessey’s warm and intimate writing sets this book apart from others focused on similar topics. Her approach and style offer a unique addition to literature on women’s role in Christian churches.
