This book is written by someone who is still part of the church, so, while she is extremely critical of almost all Catholic church teaching on women and sex, she does think Christianity itself is not the problem. I think folks still involved in Christian churches will find her arguments enlightening. Not sure how it will read to someone who has left or never belonged. My favorite line in the book is "Jesus was a friend to women, the first and practically the last friend women had in the Church." ( )
