Christian women today feel torn between the demands of motherhood, career, and ministry—and by a church that gives them conflicting ideas of what it means to be a woman. In Redeeming the Feminine Soul: God’s Compelling Vision for Womanhood, popular national radio host Julie Roys reveals the stunning truth that no one else is talking about: women are destroying themselves. Internalizing society’s devaluation of the feminine, some women are killing their own natural impulses to pursue a feminist ideal that bears no relation to God’s good design. Other women struggle to conform to a fundamentalist, feminine caricature, which requires denying their full humanity and gifting. Defying both feminists and fundamentalists, Julie Roys reveals God’s true, affirming, and compelling vision for women, showing them how to reclaim what is uniquely feminine, and become healthy, balanced women of God.

This was an interesting book and talked about a variety of different topics. The author deals with some issues that are sometimes ignored or not talked about opening in the Christian community such as sex, infidelity and gender roles. All of the topics in this book were discussed with an open mind and the author gives readers some new perspectives on certain issues. Throughout the book the author provides Biblical perspectives and scripture about the issue at hand.
