Item description for Women Caught in the Conflict: The Culture War Between Traditionalism and Feminism by Rebecca M. Groothuis...

The author offers a new perspective on the debate between evangelical feminists and traditionalists by placing each belief system into its historical and cultural context, and then evaluating each position in light of that context.

Reviews - What do customers think about Women Caught in the Conflict: The Culture War Between Traditionalism and Feminism?

Does not represent Christian women  Oct 7, 2005
This book by Groothuis is not representative of who I am as a Christian woman, and it would be a mistake for any non-Christian woman to believe this attitude is embraced by most women in Christianity. It is not. If a woman is looking for reasons to not have a servant's heart, read the Groothuis book. (We are commanded as followers of Christ to be servants in Christianity). This book hurts God. It does not inspire any woman to serve children with her time and nurturing nature or her husband, for that matter, but it is egocentric and vain in message and attitude. How can the author be filled with the Holy Spirit and yet be so filled with herself? This is not any book I could ever recommend as a Christian. For a more accurate history of feminism and its effects on both the pagan culture and Christianity I would like to recommend The Feminist Mistake by Mary Kassian (Crossway).

 
No Biblical Scholar   Sep 29, 2005
It is important to keep in mind that this woman is no biblical scholar, and this work is replete with taking texts out of context to meet the author's egalitarian, feminist agenda of power and control OVER THE MAN under the guise of "equality".
 
I can still love God without pretending I'm an air head   Nov 14, 2004
This book is an awesome indepth study of where the traditions of society have been layed on Women as God's commandments. I personally found it comforting to know that there are other christian women who are struggling with this battle. Sometimes are church services sound more like a meeting of "The He-man Woman Haters Club" (As the Little Rascals called themselves.) I think this book should be read be any female christian or non-believer to help all of us understand why MAN believes what he believes and what God actually did and did not say. I really am impressed with this book and I don't impress easily.
Happy Reading.
 
Excellent, ground-breaking treatment of the issue.  Aug 23, 1998
This is a well-documented, carefully argued, and civil discussion of the relationship between Christianity and feminism. The author convincingly shows that not all feminism is alike, and that biblical feminists (or egalitarians) have not capitulated to secular trends. She outlines how egalitarians can base their thinking squarely on the Bible itself. She continues her analysis in the sequel, Good News for Women: A Biblical Picture of Gender Equality (Baker Books, 1997), which addresses the theological issues in more depth.
