Ben Virgo, Christian Heritage London

A timely re-write, taking us from Creation, through history, to the perplexing times we inhabit now. Sharon helpfully traces the feminist movement showing how thinking has changed so rapidly and fundamentally, leading to a rejection of biblical truth where Christians are now viewed as hateful and intolerant. Our challenge is to ‘have confidence to live out, and tell out, what God says about sexuality, and about how to live a truly happy and fulfilled life’. This book will equip women of all ages to do so, and will also give confidence to Christian men to live out their God-given calling, in right relationship to women.

Julia Jones, Director of Women’s courses at London Seminary, and missionary support worker with Grace Baptist Mission

Sharon James has given us a biblically faithful and pastorally sensitive affirmation of God’s clear design for women. In this updated version she engages with many of the contemporary debates. At a time of great confusion, she helps us to think in a positive and balanced way about this vital subject. This book is highly recommended.

Paul Mallard, Pastor, Widecombe Baptist Church Bath
