CallieAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!June 15, 2016CallieAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4If you've been reading for a while, you know that even though I don't talk about it much, I am very interested in politics. When I saw Feisty and Feminine: A Rallying Cry For Conservative Women up for review, I had to request it! Penny Young Nance is the head of Concerned Women For America, a political action group for Christian conservative women - which I am one, so I was excited to read this book.
I do actually read a decent amount of political books and I think of myself as fairly well-informed when it comes to current events and politics, so the raw information in this book wasn't too new to me - however, what I really appreciated was how Nance addressed the different issues.
Weaved throughout this book are biblical truths as they apply to the political arena, and Nance does not lose any opportunity to present the gospel, which she does in a natural way. She talks about being "Esther Women", placed in this country "for such a time as this", and she gives different encouragements for what we can do to sway the culture and politics in a positive, biblical direction. Much of the information in this book is sobering, but rather than coming off as depressing, this book is inspiring.
If you are not as up on political events, I think you would find this book very interesting and motivating. If you are like me and do stay updated on politics, there is still a lot for you here. After reading this book I am hoping to get in contact with the CWA chapter in my state - it sounds like a great organization. This is one of my favorite political books in recent years - I definitely recommend it!
Note: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for a review. This is my honest opinion.
CDecker3 Stars Out Of 5Compelling, Conservative and CompassionateMay 20, 2016CDeckerQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Penny shares a compelling, conservative and yet compassionate perspective to issues facing our world right now: devaluation of women, marriage, sanctity of life, religious extremism, Israel and balance. For each topic she presents the conservative perspective along with the facts and cultural implications of apathy, political correctness and inaction. I appreciate this book for so many reasons. I enjoyed Pennys personal stories as well as the facts and information she shares to equip us for civil yet difficult conversations with people who disagree. Penny presents rationale for beliefs which are rarely given airtime and I appreciated hearing her perspective, unfiltered. While I am not an activist, Penny did challenge me to not sit idly by either. The knowledge she shares in this book equipped me with questions to ask when a conversation Im in shifts into one of these political hot topics and how to continue to support women in the real battles we face every day. If you are socially conservative then this book will equip and empower you to stand up for what you believe or at least be confident and courageous in your resolve to believe what you believe.
