A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head and Calling Her Husband Master by Rachel Held Evans

| , |

“Fearless” might describe this author’s adventure of living a year according to the Bible’s instructions for women. Motivated and intrigued by women who choose to assume traditional gender roles in the home, Evans decides live the way a literal translation of Scripture passages might require. Entering the year with the hesitant but full support of her husband, Evans chooses one virtue to focus on each month.

From gentleness and domesticity to purity, fertility, and submission, Evans combines the difficult practicality of living with a deep desire to understand why the Bible may have required women and men to live together in these prescribed ways. Prepare to be exhausted and sometimes exasperated but always engaged as you journey through the year with Evans. (Thomas Nelson)
