We fail to recognize his rightful place of worship in our lives, and his rightful rule on the throne in our hearts. McLaughlin focuses on these eyewitnesses and shows why Jesus’s message was (and still should be) so appealing to women.

And many unbiblical things have happened in the name of God, Jesus Christ, and/or the church, including the treatment of women. If you have been a Christian for a while, my guess is you can think of times when you’ve cried to God for help and felt like you got nothing back. The book includes many discussion prompts at the end of every chapter, as well as Bible study questions to help you go deeper in the text. Her approach is fairly simple, namely, she notices women in the Gospels and draws her readers into their shoes.

We find a man who never had a sexual relationship, but who loved women so well that they’d leave everything to follow him. Electronic copies of the PDF files may be duplicated and transmitted via e-mail for personal and church use. Though she holds a PhD in Renaissance literature from Cambridge University, she is a veteran of writing accessibly at a popular level, with previous books including Confronting Christianity:10 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion (2020), The Secular Creed: Engaging Five Contemporary Claims (2021), and Confronting Jesus: 9 Encounters with the Hero of the Gospels (2022). Help TGC bring biblical wisdom to the confusing issues across the world by making a gift to our international work. I wouldn’t say it’s light, but it’s fairly brief, and thus stimulates my interest for a more in-depth study such as Gospel Women by Richard Bauckham.

But Peter’s mother-in-law, 2,000 years ago, knew what modern psychologists have only recently discovered. Rebecca's subsequent walk through the four canonical gospels' eyewitness accounts of women whom Jesus loved makes for an exhorting and encouraging read and portrays a beautiful picture of Jesus through the eyes of his women followers. If you want further reading on women’s role in the church and an exegetical look at what specific verses mean, I would recommend Evangelical Feminism by Wayne Grudem or Men and Women in the Church by Kevin DeYoung. McLaughlin takes us through many interactions between Jesus and women: Mary (his mother), Mary Magdalene, Mary and Martha (Mary was the most common name during that time if you haven’t noticed), Elizabeth, the Samaritan woman at the well, Joanna, the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, and more.They stir up affection for familiar truths while McLaughlin helps make connections that are novel for readers who are older in the faith. So often in our modern life, we see service and freedom as opposites… We humans thrive when serving with a grateful heart, while endlessly self-realizing ‘freedom’ makes us miserable. Rebecca clearly explores the significance of Jesus’ interactions with women in the historical context and how those interactions with women displayed the value that they have in the eyes of God.

Because we live in the 21st century, I had the perfect vehicle for daily devotionals: text messaging.Ponder this: a woman (Elizabeth) gives us the first prophecy since Malachi in Luke 1 and a woman (Mary Magdalene) is the person Jesus tasks with telling the disciples that He is alive in John 20. Much of what we know about Jesus’s conception, infancy, and childhood we only know because the women who surrounded him passed on their testimony. Fitting for the holiday season, Chapter 1 looks at Prophecy and the important roles that Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna play in the Christmas story. D. in Renaissance Literature from Cambridge University and a degree in theological and pastoral studies from Oak Hill Theological College in London. Some read the story of how some of the women interacted with Jesus and make the false assumption that women were there to just keep house for the men.

Rebecca McLaughlin is excellent in telling the story of Christianity with useful references to other authors, scientists and her experience of living through the faith.These advances should be guided by basic principles of medical ethics, including beneficence, non-maleficence, autonomy, and justice, which are all consistent with the biblical principle of loving our neighbor. WINE: Women In the New Evangelization offers its second, six-week scripture study, this time following the infancy and early years of Christ as seen through the eyes of Mary and other familiar and imagined women in the gospels. She reminds us that, in that culture, the only reason to say that women witnessed all this is that they really did. In the 21st-century West, we tend to see guilt as an unhealthy feeling to be shed, and forgiving ourselves as more important than seeking forgiveness from others. We deny that humans can or should cede our moral accountability or responsibilities to any form of AI that will ever be created.
