|Title: Woman Be
Author: Patricia Gundry
Copyright 1977 by The Zondervan Corporation
I began to realize many years ago that many women mentioned in the Bible had authority and responsibility that are denied women in many churches today. There seemed to be a contradiction between what the Bible showed women doing and what was forbidden them to do by the Apostle Paul.
In my search to resolve the apparent contradictions, I ran across a small book with a big message, Woman Be Free written by Patricia Gundry. The author gets right to the heart of the problem by addressing:
In the last two chapters she talks about "What can woman do?" and "What do I do now?" She makes the topic relevant to the average woman's life.
This book is too brief, only seven chapters, to answer all of the criticisms against women being active by using their spiritual gifts. It does give a starting point. The author's endnotes give references to other works that have more detail.
Woman Be Free lived up to its title
by freeing my mind and heart to act on opportunities that came my way.
I can now act on the freedom that Jesus gives. So can you.
