Item Description...
Overview
Ruth Haley Barton believes that what lies underneath much of the confusion and dissatisfaction many Christian women experience in life is a longing for freedom ? not the freedom to do as we please, but the freedom to discover our full identity in Christ and use our gifts to serve God.

With wisdom and charity Barton?s exhilarating book explores the many areas of a woman?s life that need the freeing touch of Christ such as vocation, relationships, spirituality, identity, sexuality, singleness, marriage and motherhood. Avoiding both feminist and fundamentalist trappings, she affirms our longings as important markers which point us toward God?s renewing love. Barton?s honesty, biblical insight, practical examples and loving encouragement combine to form a powerful, empowering book that will transform the way you live out your identity and purpose in God?s kingdom.

Publishers Description
In the quiet places of your heart, do you ever yearn for something more? Many Christian women, if we are honest, feel discontented about aspects of our lives. Some of us long to be married, while others long to escape from marriage. Some of us struggle with our roles in the church, wondering why God would give us gifts that are not allowed to flourish. Some of us feel we have no voice. Others of us have no idea what we would say if we did. Ruth Haley Barton believes that what lies underneath all our confusion is a longing for freedom--not the freedom to do as we please, but the freedom to discover our full identity in Christ and use our gifts to serve God. With wisdom and charity Barton's exhilarating book explores the many areas of a woman's life that need the freeing touch of Christ such as vocation, relationships, spirituality, identity, sexuality, singleness, marriage and motherhood. Avoiding both feminist and fundamentalist trappings, she affirms our longings as important markers which point us toward God's renewing love. Barton's honesty, biblical insight, practical examples and loving encouragement combine to form a powerful, empowering book that will transform the way you live out your identity and purpose in God's kingdom.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting, But Not Great!  Aug 13, 2008
Barton tries to help women deal with feelings of dissatisfaction by finding freedom in who we are in Christ. She presents case for women being gifted and called by God. She thinks some church and social structure leads to women suppressing and not using these gifts. She covers topics such as identity, vocation, relationships, spirituality, singleness/marriage, sexuality, and motherhood. She believes we all have a calling that lives itself out in all these areas.

I think that was a good book, but not GREAT (as suggested by a friend). Some of the chapters felt redundant when read 2 per week for a group. It might have been a better fast read. It might also apply more to older women in a different part of the country (I am 32 and live in California).
