Description

I wish people who claim to be Christian were required to use this as a litmus test of their faith and follow through. The book introduces us to lesser-known women of the Bible, too, like Joanna, the wife of Herod’s household manager and a likely source of inside information from the halls of power (Luke 9:1-3; 9:9). Jesus could have first shown his resurrected self to Peter who came to the tomb, but instead he came to Mary. AI should not intrude upon or substitute for the biblical expression of sexuality between a husband and wife according to God’s design for human marriage. These are the types of readers McLaughlin seems eager to bring along, graciously refuting some of the false claims they may have heard about Christianity—that it is, at best, dismissive of the female experience and, at worst, harmful to women—while introducing them to the one who “valued women of all kinds—especially those vilified by others.

In Jesus through the Eyes of Women , Rebecca McLaughlin explores the life-changing accounts of women who met the Lord. Winding along the road to Emmaus, Join two friends on the road as the joy of the first Easter dawns. We affirm that work is part of God’s plan for human beings participating in the cultivation and stewardship of creation. We find a man who never had a sexual relationship, but who loved women so well that they’d leave everything to follow him.If you think “anti-women,“ or “misogynistic” when you hear “Christian” - please give Rebecca’s book a close listen.

McLaughlin’s even-handed approach would make the book a viable suggestion even for a secular book club, and questions written by TGC’s Joanna Kimbrel at the end of each chapter make such discussions even easier. Though she holds a PhD in Renaissance literature from Cambridge University, she is a veteran of writing accessibly at a popular level, with previous books including Confronting Christianity:10 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion (2020), The Secular Creed: Engaging Five Contemporary Claims (2021), and Confronting Jesus: 9 Encounters with the Hero of the Gospels (2022).Since the Lord Jesus alone can atone for sin and reconcile humanity to its Creator, technology such as AI cannot fulfill humanity’s ultimate needs. In the 21st-century West, we tend to see guilt as an unhealthy feeling to be shed, and forgiving ourselves as more important than seeking forgiveness from others.
