Summaries
Main Description
"Is hell a male-only club?" Frederica asks this provocative question as she takes us on a journey through her early years as a feminist, her conversion to Christianity, and the realization that men and women are unique yet equal. She gives us glimpses into her meetings with prominent feminists, takes us through Crisis Pregnancy Centers and explores the provocative idea of early marriage as a way to mature and healthy adulthood. Sure to make you think and react, this is a great book to give to friends, for lively discussions on some of the most important issues facing us today. This excellent book is first in a four part series, which provides a selection of Frederica's best writings on contemporary issues relating to Gender, Culture, Ethics, and Faith. Her original and thoughtful insights are expressed in a style that is fresh, personal, and frequently humorous. She examines modern-day challenges from a perspective of ancient wisdom, as one who seeks to be deeply grounded in the faith of the early Christian Church.
