A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans

I do not have a vagina.

But I have a brain and a soul, and I loved this book.

It tells the story of a Christian woman’s attempt to take the Bible literally and live out its commands in modern-day society.

The results are at times hilarious and at other times thought-provoking.

Quite often, both happen at the same time.

I feel well-informed about the contents of the Bible. Like this author, I take my faith seriously. It informs my choices and influences by decisions.

But I learned some fascinating new things about old verses. The scholarship in this book is just as high-quality as the storytelling.

You’ve likely heard the hype and the controversy. Most of it is misguided. I give this book my highest recommendation. You will be challenged and you will grow in your faith.
