Publisher's Description

Bestselling Author Reveals How God Empowers Women for Leadership and Purpose

Christian women are often led to believe they are God's afterthoughts--as if they were created inferior to men or destined by God to play a secondary role in life. Not so, says bestselling author J. Lee Grady, father of four daughters and a leading international voice confronting the abuse of women. He counters that the Bible's message is neither sexist nor patronizing.

Through sharing the lives of 23 mold-breaking biblical women, Grady shows how God enables his daughters to do amazing, even impossible things. He also reveals the empowering, yet often-overlooked, gifts God longs to give each of his daughters--gifts like wisdom, fruitfulness, leadership, family, and boldness. When women learn to receive each of these, and more, as a divine inheritance, they will live the fearless and beautiful lives of purpose God desires for them.

    This book will not go down as one of my favorites. I thought it was just going to be about women in the Bible. There are different women mentioned in this book, some you may have never heard of. I liked the idea the author was presenting that women can make a difference and take a stand. I gave this book 4/5 stars for a couple reasons. I thought the authors tone was too condescending. It felt like he was saying if you are not out doing this and that you are not serving the Lord enough. I think if this book had been written by a woman there would have been a better tone and not come across so preachy. Now remember that is just my opinion, you may absolutely love the book! I would recommend this to anyone looking for women to inspire them to be more like Christ in their service to the Lord.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    This new personal growth book challenges, "What you can learn from 22 women who challenged tradition, fought injustice, and dared to lead." According to Grady, too often women are either misinformed about the roles of biblical womanhood or they find them too challenging or unattainable. Specifically, he points to the Proverbs 31 woman who tends to be put on a pedestal and whose deeds seem to be impossible to match.

    In the book he goes through 15 chapters (with 22 examples of women) that take examples directly from the pages of the Bible and explains the character qualities that not only made them unique but great. He looks at each biblical example with a purpose and uses examples from scripture to show us who they were and how they lived. Take for example the first chapter on Sarah, the Mother of our Faith, we are shown her courage to be a pioneer. She is shown in a positive light as a woman who dared to follow her husband into a new world. Not a drudge or a doormat but as a woman who wanted a part of the blessings of their God.

    For the most part I found this book an interesting read. Grady uses both familiar examples (like Ruth and Esther) along with some that I was not as familiar with ( like Achsah, daughter of Caleb or Jehosheba, daughter of King Joram). In every example , he looked at it with scriptural examples, as well as modern examples that reflect similar qualities.

    I only have two concerns with this book that affected my perception of it. The first is the use of some modern examples. In several chapters the examples like Rosa Parks or Mulan, seemed out of place next to examples like Corrie ten Boom or Amy Carmichal. My thought was if we want to push women to be more like Christ why not try to keep the examples on track. Although the strong female model of Mulan can be seen as a good thing, essentially you are comparing a teenager who ran away from home and disobeyed both parents and the law to Mary Slessor, missionary to Africa. (Don't get me wrong, I think Mulan is a fun and funny movie, but everything has its place). My second concern is some of the liberty I see Grady taking with his scriptural context. I think that showing that God had an intended and valuable role for women is to be commended. In a world where they are sometimes shown as second class citizens, women need to be reminded that they were an intricate part of God's original plan. But in that plan He chose for us to be equal partners, with man as a leader. In "Fearless Daughters," Grady, in his haste to empower women, compromises clear scriptural guidelines about the role of women in the church. For example, both 1Timothy and Titus, declare that the pastor is to be "the husband of one wife." But in chapter 13, Grady applauds a woman who is the pastor of a church. Please don't mistake me, I believe that a woman can have a vital part of church ministry. But if we as a church disregard guidelines given to us by God, how can we hope to receive his blessings?

    *Bethany House is great to provide me with a free copy of a selection of their book. In return I am not required to like it but to review it honestly to the best of my ability. All opinions are mine.

    This study takes us through twenty-two Biblical women, from well-known figures such as Mary and Ruth, to lesser-known figures such as the five daughters of Zelophehad. He relates each of these Biblical women (or groups of women) to a specific issue, then compares them with Christian women today—and the results are not always in our favour:

    "But the message in both Victorian England and suburban America was that women should not attempt anything brave. They should stay indoors, out of the heat of the sun, and out of trouble. They should let their men solve the world's problems while they attend to details like folding linens and polishing silverware. Secular Americans do not think that way today, for the most part, but sadly many Christians do."

    There is a large branch of the evangelical church who believe that or something similar, and they are either going to be challenged or offended by a book like this. The author, a male, is a strong believer in the obligations of women to serve obediently God in whatever their calling, and he doesn't believe women's callings are limited to being stay-at-home moms. Amen. Notice I say ‘obligations' not ‘rights'. We have no rights in God. But we do have an obligation to serve, to honour Jesus's sacrifice with our obedience, a point Grady makes clearly.

    Oddly enough, some will respect Fearless Daughters of the Bible less because it is written by a man, and a man who clearly believes that women are called to serve, have an obligation to serve. Others, like me, respect it more because it's written by a man. Recommended.

    Fearless Daughters of the Bible: What You Can Learn from 22 Women Who Challenged Tradition, Fought Injustice and Dared to Lead by J. Lee Grady is a book that I found hard to put down.

    This book grabbed my attention right from the beginning. In the introduction, Mr. Grady speaks about fathers. What kind of father did you have? He lists a few types such as the absent, distant, or critical father. Even if you have grown up with not a good father-figure, God can heal those hurts and God also loves you very, very much. 1 John 3:1 says this, "See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him."

    One thing that more conservative Christians might not like is that the author encourages women leaders and being pastors.

    I enjoyed reading about real life women who did great things for God. Great encouragement. Also enjoyed reading about the different women of the Bible. We, as women, should follow their examples of trusting God and obeying Him. After each chapter there are some questions which would be good for small group discussions. There's also A Message from Your Heavenly Father at the end.

    I personally think there's a lot of good in this book to be worth the read.

    I received this eBook for free from Chosen Books in return for my honest review.
