If you are feeling unfulfilled or sometimes defeated in your Christian walk. Wondering if there is more, you need to read Danielle's book. There are so many nuggets in this book I would like to share, but here are just two. " Yes, Jesus can save people from ultimate destruction. But He wants to do so much more than that. He wants to save you from yourself, from sin, from despair, from brokenness, from hopelessness, and more....." " He can saturate you. He can neutralize your natural inclination to act selfishly. He can overflow you with the Holy Spirit. He can accompany you through a boundless life lived in overflow. It sounds almost to good to be true, but it isn't. It's the Gospel truth." Chapter 11, Boundless Overflow, Danielle gives us many scriptures to use as a reference and to affirm her proclamation. She does an excellent job of answering some hard questions in the back of this book, and also explaining salvation. Even though it is a small book, I gained a great deal from reading it and would recommend it. I recently had the opportunity of hearing her speak at our church. If you ever have that opportunity, please go, you won't be disappointed.… (more)

I guess I got what I was expecting from this book: a panegyric for popular women's lib in the church. The author describes several ways that women have been abused(both in some churches and cultural activities). Although she implies otherwise, these actions and attitudes are not supported by the Bible. Christian women who want to live according to Scripture will not be helped by reading this book.

My wife read this book and found it mildly helpful. I also did a quick review of it, especially some Scriptural interpretations. I think the author stretches them a bit though I understand what she is trying to do. She wants to show that women's role lies between the complementarian and the current feminist point of view that some have adopted too. It offers some good points, but overall it stretches it too much.

This book challenged me, but not quite in the way I expected.

I expected to be challenged theologically, and philosophically. I find rather that I am challenged to treat the book and the author with compassion. It doesn't live up to its promise.

I understand that in a very Biblical sense, every injustice is an injustice against all. The prophets of the Old Testament challenged their entire society to deal with injustice. They understood that the society was sick because they allowed injustice, even if they didn't participate in it. Strickland takes that notion to another level. All injustices [against women] are equal, so forbidding women to preach is the same as selling them as sex slaves or forcing them to wear a burqa. The real question, to my mind, would be "Is it an injustice to disagree with Strickland?"

She writes well. This book is easy to read, yet the author keeps taking short cuts in logic that make it difficult to keep reading. Normally an author buildis a good argument, and then refer back to that argument. Strickland makes offhand references to arguments that she will build later in the book.

She also makes arguments based on a flawed understanding of the culture and society of the ancient near east. Her image of male/female relationships in ancient Greece is not supported by historical research and anthropology. Her arguments about Paul's statement to Timothy, "I do not allow women to teach men...." are made questionable by her dependence on questionable scholarship.

Thus, I am disappointed in this book. I expected to be challenged to seriously examine her theological arguments, and I find that although she writes well, she writes unconvincingly.
