"What Every Woman Should Know" by Jori Sams Book Review

Summary (from goodreads): This book offers a lot of hope and inspiration for women battling to know what God was thinking when He made man and woman. Are they really created equal? Is the church today in divine and biblical order?

Unpack some of the most controversial passages in the Bible. Take a journey through history to see the effects of society on the role of women over the ages. The discoveries may astound you and set you free.

What Every Woman Should KnowWhat Every Woman Should Know by Jori Sams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all, this is not an easy-to-read book. One may even call is a heavy read. And this is for those who are truly students of the Word of God. It goes very deeply into the things of God, and you probably won't connect with the book if you don't have at least a working knowledge of the Bible. I even struggled to connect at times.

I appreciate all of her historical research (although I would like to know where she got all of her information since it is very extensive). She covers everything from the Old Testament clear through today. She continues to take you back the Word of God to illustrate and support her various points. This author has certainly done her homework.

I will say that there were several portions in the book that I did not agree with. I don't want to say here because I don't want to add any spoilers. I am not generally bothered when I read things that challenge my beliefs, and I can honestly say I don't hold these issues against the author. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I would like to see where she got some of her views since some of them are new to me.

While the book is sometimes a little slow-paced, much of the information is good. I don't recommend reading this in one setting. She has discussion questions for each chapter, and so you could even read this in a book group of Bible study.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
