The book describes God-honoring women, starting from the Old Testament and leading to modern times. Their lives reflect Pauls request in Romans 12:1, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. From slaves to queens, martyrs to missionaries, Severance gives strong examples of godly women of different time periods, using clear language and connections to a variety of issues. As a historian with wide teaching experience and as director of the Dunham Bible Museum, Severance uses her training to create a book full of scholarly references and Bible-based reflection.
Severance is not trying to promote every belief mentioned in the book; her purpose is to examine the feminine threads in the tapestry of Christian history. Her point is proved by history itself that true Christianity provides freedom and fulfillment for women. Anyone who struggles to understand Gods intentions for women in the church will be encouraged by reading about those women of the past who accomplished good works while adhering to biblical truth. Severance has gathered a broad and dynamic testament with timeless application. Feminine Threads is sure to be appreciated by history lovers, as well as any Christian woman today.
