A New Look at Womanhood Embraced by a New Generation – A New Covenant Platform for Christian Women
In her timely, Biblically based book “God’s Feminist Movement” Amber Picota redefines feminism for today’s generation of Christian women. She describes these women as “gracious, humble, wise, gentle yet strong, diligent, and pure in heart; revolutionaries who shape the course of history.”
Her goal is to equip the reader, women and men, co-heirs in the body of Christ, to study the scriptures in light of the historical background, hermeneutics, and the original languages, to put aside preconceived concepts, and to discern for themselves the application of theses passages to make them applicable for a contemporary setting.
The subjects of women in leadership, submission in marriage, headship, and the cost of trail blazing are especially relevant for today. These are important issues that are being faced in business, education, and politics, issues that cannot be minimized in church life. Picota urges the reader to lead the way in breaking away from traditional misconceptions, and trite clichés to claim the promises and follow the patterns of the New Covenant.
I was deeply moved by Amber’s personal testimony of coming to Christ, the struggles that followed and the unique way that God worked in her spirit to a commitment of her life to fulfill His purpose.
Amber writes from heartfelt convictions, her message is convincing, contagious, and commanding. “God’s Feminist Movement – Redefining “A Woman’s Place” from a Biblical Perspective” is important reading for pastors, organizational ministries, and lay leaders in the Church in this and future generations.
