Less is more! Oct 4, 2005
This writer needs a good editor! Although it took will power to wade through the many repetitions, I enjoyed and have benefitted from being reminded of the stories of these women whom Jesus affected and who affected him -- a point the writer makes convincingly.
Learn how much Jesus loved women Feb 27, 1999
I have used "Do What You Have The Power To Do", a number of times as small group bible studies. It convinces the student that indeed, Jesus did love women. It causes a thirst for more knowledge about the bible and serves as a primer for healthy feminist thinking. I haven't found a better tool for my own study or for my leading of others. It is important for some to learn within the context of the faith. Clearly, Helen Pearson believes the scriptures but is perceptive about our need to see ourselves as women. If you, as I have, felt partronized when hearing how Jesus loved women, this book makes that belief powerful. It truly gives power to women and anyone one who reads it. Women often fear and shy away from power. Power has been angry and devisive. If that is to be avoided, this book shows another way to power. Pearson does not limit her study to the New Teastement. She takes us all over the bible and and creates a desire to know more. This techniqe gives power in itself. It makes the statement that we are learners and we feel empowered to learn. We come to know 6 New Testement women very well and long to know others. I recommend this book to everyone. It can be used as it is written as a total study and meditative tool, it can be divided and applied to short studies, or it could be used for individual stucy. You'll want to keep it on your desk for reference. Just read it. It will change your life. I beg Helen Bruch Pearson to write another book for us. Soon.
