Tomorrow is the day that Sarah Bessey’s long-awaited book, Jesus Feminist, publishes. I’ve written about it before, so of course I grabbed the first ARC I could. And I’m happy to let you know that it does not disappoint. I’ve written a full review of the book at The Junia Project. Check it out!
Here’s an excerpt from the book:
Our big and good God is at work in the world, and we have been invited to participate fully—however God gifted and equipped and called each of us. One needn’t identify as a feminist to participate in the redemptive movement of God for women in the world. The gospel is more than enough. …But as long as I know how important maternal health is to Haiti’s future, and as along as I know that women are being abused and raped, as long as I know girls are being denied life itself through selective abortion and abandonment and abuse, as long as brave little girls in Afghanistan are attacked with acid for the crime of going to school, and until being a Christian is synonymous with doing something about these things, you can also call me a feminist.
