Description

How can women find strength, courage, and motivation in a religious denomination that believes in the necessity of a wife's submission to her husband? This book shows that Southern Baptist women are surprisingly more complex and rebellious than outside observers might think they are. It presents the views of more than 150 women, often using their own words, and finds in them an unshakable belief that God speaks as directly to them as to any pastor or denominational leader. Although these women respect their leaders and are influenced by them, ultimately they recognize that their beliefs and practices are determined by their own choices, and with God's guidance.
