Product Description

Jesus as "liberator" - this is how Luke presents Jesus. Susan Yanos here explores what liberation means for women personally, socially, spiritually - not as an ideological feminist but as a critical thinker trying to make sense of her life.

Beginning with an in-depth look at the story of Martha and Mary in Part One, Yanos guides the reader into an examination of how women have related to God and how Jesus relates to women in Luke's Gospel and Acts. Part Two guides the reader toward a response to the radical freedom Jesus offers, focusing "less on serving God and more on letting God serve us." Part Three explores women's social and political power and how they can claim and use that power properly, performing "true acts of goodness rather than acts of do-goodism."

Ideal for use with small groups, such as prayer groups and Bible-study groups, Woman, You Are Free may be used for an ongoing self-guided program, or read by individual women and men for personal reflection and challenge. Each chapter opens with an activity involving Scripture reading and closes with questions for reflection and discussion and suggestions for further reading.
