Saint Louis, MO– Few topics are more passionately discussed in modern culture than the role of women. Can a woman have it all? Should she? LadyLike: Living Biblically takes a bold look at the role of Christian women in today’s increasingly secular world.
Over the course of 46 essays, authors Rebekah Curtis and Rose Adle examine a variety of modern-day topics through the lens of God’s distinct design for men and women.
“The fact that we are different is why we are valuable,” explains Adle. “Rather than understand each others’ differences, and understand those differences as created by a loving God, modern culture attempts to blur the lines and hide the differences between men and women.”
“Adle and Curtis don't pull any punches in their dash to ride the counter cultural wave of Biblical Truth about womanhood as Christ designed and redeemed her,” says Rev. Jonathan Fisk, host of Worldview Everlasting, and author of Broken: 7 "Christian" Rules That Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible. “With a healthy dose of sardonic wit, spiced with the right dash of caregiving reserve, their work is a breath of fresh air in a world of women caught up in the maelstrom of not being ‘good enough’ unless they try to be men.”
LadyLike addresses such topics as:
· Can women have it all?
· What are we supposed to learn from women in the Bible?
· Vocation vs. Station
· Is the Old Testament misogynistic?
· How did Jesus treat women?
· Who washes the dishes?
· What does it mean to live a faithful life?
