Disclaimer: Christian books are a wonderful gift that God has given to the Body of Christ. They help us grow, mature our faith, challenge and sharpen us in truth - but they can never replace the infaillable Word of God given to us in Scripture. The measure of a benecifial book must always be that its premises arise from truths rooted and grounded in the Bible. You will not always agree with everything as put forth in some of the titles we recommend, but we encourage you to read with a discerning spirit (1 John 4:1)
There is much discussion and confusion around the issues of gender equality and gender roles, and the church is not exempt. Some even believe that the Bible contributes to sexism against women and that God is, in some way, sexist.
In this warm, conversational and sympathetic book, Kathleen Nielson looks at what the Bible really says about women and what it reveals about God’s attitude towards them. She asks the hard questions about the Old Testament Law, the role of women in marriage and the role of women in the church, consistently pointing us to God’s word and his perfectly created order. She not only provides Biblical reasoning in answer to these questions, but also shows how the truth can be enjoyed as women and men submit to the perfect will of our compassionate, merciful and gracious God.

"I was deeply helped by reading Women and God. It is a book written by a wise woman, and it does not shy away from hard, painful, complex issues." - Ligon Duncan, Reformed Theological Seminary
