Book Review: Jesus Feminist

Bessey calls us to be Spiritual Midwives, Patron Saints, and to allow barriers to be broken, but in a Kingdom way. Her book encourages women's ministries to grow beyond arts and crafts into a ministry that has "room for everyone. You have a great women's ministry when you have detoxed from the world's views and unattainable standards for women and begun to celebrate the everyday women of valor, sitting next to you, and when you encourage, affirm, and welcome the diversity of women - their lives, their voices, their experiences - to the community."

(Don't you love it when there is a but?!) "But, take heart, because I have overcome the world."
