4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this and here is why, 17 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Jesus Feminist (Paperback)
I must confess to not being an avid follower of Bessey's blog, so feted in the `blogosphere'. However, I was aware of her blogging when I picked up this book for review. I think that she is a gifted writer and her blogging is rightly well-received. It was therefore with interest that I began to read this book.

Bessey clearly knows how to read Scripture well and she also knows her audience. This comes across clearly in her writing which is in her customary tone. I do like this tone, although I can't help feeling that the style may be better in shorter blog posts rather than a full-length book as its intensity did begin to wear on me a little. However, I do tend to read books like this in one sitting whereas I recognise that most readers would probably only read one chapter at a time and therefore Bessey has probably pitched her writing style quite well for this kind of audience.

I liked this book overall. I would not suggest it as providing a particular insight for a young woman into the debate on what it means to be a woman in Christ, as it does not contextualise itself significantly in the wider debate. However I don't think that Bessey intended it to be such a book and, as a personal memoir, I think it reads very well and will be a great encouragement to many young women.

I received a free copy of this e-book from NetGalley in return for a fair review.
