WWRW ~ Biblical Living
Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Evan Woods was a wonderful read. I really enjoyed her writing style; she gave serious topics and issues their proper due but never took herself or the various 'biblical' inspired challenges she undertook over the course of a year too serious.
Each month of the year she focused on a different virtue of biblical womanhood and strove to live it out to the best of her understanding and ability; and from various traditions. For example the month she focused on silence she attended a weekend retreat at a Benedictine Monastery and services at a Quaker Meeting House.
She shares of her experience and different conclusions she has drawn thoughtfully as food for thought for the reader rather than set in stone wisdom. She also shares others understands of the virtues she is exploring.
Issues of sex and violence are discussed respectfully but in an adult manner so I would not give this book to anyone younger than perhaps high school.
