Redeeming the Feminine Soul by Julie Roys
Popular national radio host Julie Roys rejects both fundamentalist caricature and feminist distortion to reveal God’s amazingly relevant and compelling vision for women, showing them how to redeem their feminine souls and become all God designed them to be.
Christian women today feel torn between the demands of motherhood, career, and ministry—and by a church that gives them conflicting ideas of what it means to be a woman.
In Redeeming the Feminine Soul: God’s Surprising Vision for Womanhood, popular national radio host Julie Roys reveals the stunning truth that no one else is talking about: women are destroying themselves. Internalizing society’s devaluation of the feminine, some women are killing their own natural impulses to pursue a feminist ideal that bears no relation to God’s good design. Other women struggle to conform to a fundamentalist, feminine caricature, which requires denying their full humanity and gifting.
Defying both feminists and fundamentalists, Julie Roys reveals God’s true, affirming, and compelling vision for women, showing them how to reclaim what is uniquely feminine, and become healthy, balanced women of God.
My Thoughts: In a time where women seem to start being more concerned about their traditional feminine self, I was very interested in checking out Redeeming the Feminine Soul when it was offered to me in exchange for review. The book is absolutely wonderful. Throughout Julie Roys warns against false ideas that seem prevalent (maybe you’ve seen the tv show one) while encouraging the good ones. Throughout her opinions are solid and not watered down by current popular and political views.
