Item description for Liberating Tradition: Women's Identity and Vocation in Christian Perspective (RenewedMinds) by Kristina Lacelle-Peterson...
Overview Kristina LaCelle-Peterson seeks both to affirm the central place of Scripture in the Christian life and to highlight the liberating nature of the gospel for both men and women. To do this the author considers the biblical ideal for human beings and then proceeds to offer a biblical foundation for each of the topics under discussion--identity, body image, personal relationships, marriage, church life, and language for God. Along the way she examines the cultural nature of gender roles and the ways in which they have become entangled with ecclesial expectations. This book will help women better appreciate themselves as women, gain a better understanding of their value in God's eyes, and recognize their potential for meaningful engagement in a variety of relationships and vocational callings.

Liberating Book Nov 2, 2009
This book presents to the overly conservative church audience a view they need to hear. Women are still being treated unfairly, especially in the church. Jesus was one of the first "feminists", continually singling women out. The "feminist" movement also actually began in the church! She also explores the negative connotations of the word "feminist" and the language of the feminist movement. Though you may not agree with every word written, this book will challenge you.
