ABOUT THE BOOK:

Experience True Liberation by Seeing Your Beauty, Femininity, and Freedom From Heaven’s Point of View

Has Christianity kept women trapped in the stone age? In many ways, yes; but this is not by God’s design. As society offers women opportunities to explore outer-space and govern nations, the church often stifles and limits them.

The tide is changing, though.

Amber Picota’s God’s Feminist Movement is a new covenant manifesto calling women to embrace their true identity in Christ and fulfill their destiny as revolutionaries who shape the course of history with the Kingdom of God. There is a powerful new feminist movement emerging in the body of Christ. It’s not politically driven and it’s not being championed by an uprising of angry “man-haters.”

Based on an intense study of Scripture, factoring in historical and contextual hermeneutics and original languages, Picota shares a practical, non-legalistic, and non-traditional (yet deeply Biblical) look at topics that women commonly face, such as:

  • Dating and Modesty
  • Female Leaders in the Church
  • Submission in Marriage
  • Beauty and Self-Image

Celebrate the power and beauty of womanhood. God has given you permission to change the world—by being you!

Break off religious traditions that keep women trapped in “old school” legalism and move beyond Christian clichés that minimize a woman’s true position in Christ!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Amber Picota serves as Pastor of Streams of Life Church alongside her husband, Rene, and homeschools their three children. Amber loves people, writing, reading, traveling, and speaking; her greatest desire is to see people come alive as they realize who they are and discover what kind of authority and freedom they have in Christ. Amber’s cutting-edge blog, amberpicota.com, features her thoughts about spirituality, motherhood, relationships, and walking in the the fullness of your New Covenant inheritance!

My thoughts:

I was hesitant to read a book like this because if it’s title but I was also curious what Amber would say on this topic.

The first chapter touches on this and addresses the issue one might have with the word. But honestly, after the first chapter I really didn’t feel like it was a “feminist” type of book. Don’t get me wrong, it had a lot of good content but I guess I felt like it was comparable to other books I have read.

I really enjoyed hearing Amber’s story, she definitely has a Genesis 5020 story and God has redeemed her of so much. Totally loved hearing about that.

If you are not sure about reading this book because of the title don’t let that stop you. It really is just a book about finding freedom as many women are held in bondage by so much.

    I have wrote on women’s beauty pertaining to hair lengths and how legalism has gotten that all wrong. I use only my KJV Bible and a concordance.
