I have enjoyed reading Vince and Ravi’s book Why Suffering and hearing Jo speak at the JMI conference in Oklahoma, particularly “Foreigners, Slavery and Women in the Old Testament.” My question is for Jo. Are you going to write a book? I would love to hear more from you on Women and how they are valued in Christianity. That talk you gave was exceptional. I have read “Is the Bible Intolerant” by Amy Orr Ewing and it was very good but I wish there was more resources on this topic out there. My son works with a secular organization that helps women and children who are victims of domestic violence. I am also starting to volunteer with another such organization myself. My frustration lies in the fact that the church is not doing more. This topic becomes political and those who support victims of domestic violence are many times pro abortion and support other feminist issues while the church appears to be silent. I fear the church is still unwittingly hurting women by teaching oppressive views (that are not biblical) and just not speaking out. The church has led the way on righting wrongs of injustice in the past, why are we not doing more in this one? I would love to hear more from you on this. I want to help educate my local church and others to be pro-women doesn’t mean you are feminist. Will you be writing a book about it? What do you suggest I read in the meantime? Thanks so much for all you do and speaking the truth. May God bless whatever He calls you to!
God Bless you,
