    She takes several leaps that aren't in the Bible

    This review was written for A Look Within: A Women's Bible Study.
    Mrs. Taylor does a pretty good job bringing out some deep truths and thoughts about some of the women in Scripture that this book studies. However, she makes some HUGE leaps about a couple of them that simply are no where to be found in Scripture. It seems she has been influenced by her current culture in making her points. For example, she uses Leah as one of her "negative" examples, concluding that she never found contentment and that she was to blame for the deceitfulness of her father. Scripture seems to indicate the exact opposite. (Just study the names she gave her children - Asher=Happy am I, etc.) She seems to have longed for her husband's love at first, but her last child's name means that she could give good gifts to her husband. Mrs. Taylor also makes a HUGE leap in the case of Dinah implying that this young girl (probably about 14 at the time of the incident) was at fault for being raped. The Bible has one sentence about Dinah and it says she was going to visit her neighbors. All other Scriptural references in this story use language such as "violate," "desecrate," "vile," "force," etc. Doing a simple word study on the verses that describe the attack on Dinah and it is clear who the Bible blames for what happened to this poor girl. Even her own father whimped out in his defense of her and when her brothers avenged her crime, they were not punished or scolded in Scripture. Those kinds of leaps evidence a lack of research and deep thinking, and even more, they show a heavy reliance on popular commentators of the 17th and 18th century which simply imposed much of their culture on their conclusions. If visiting the neighbors especially during a festival is an invitation from a young girl to be raped by a powerful leader (the prince of the city), and that girl's justice can be blamed on her, then the God of the Bible is inconsistent in His justice. But since the Bible teaches the exact opposite, HE can be trusted and He is a God of Love, Mercy, and justice.

    I am very disturbed by this Bible study. There is a chapter about Dinah that actually blames her for her rape. The author takes from what is not even there and twists it to support her ignorant views about victims of sexual assault. It even goes as far as to say that she was also responsible for the murders her brothers committed in vengeance of the rape. As a survivor of sexual assault and a christian I am really concerned about other women who are new to the faith or victims of sexual assault reading this. This is false preaching pure and simple. In all my years of Bible study I have never seen something so offensive as this.

    Excellent look at the heart and soul of women in the Bible and how to search your own heart. My group has really enjoyed the study.

    After doing this study on my own, I recommended it to our women's Bible Study. We've enjoyed it and our precious ladies are enjoying all of what we didn't know about ourselves. Our desire is to be the women that God designed us to be. Praise God for the continued inspiration He brings, through the Holy Spirit, for our Sister's In Christ who help us to grow in Christ.
