New book tackles women’s role in Christianity
KEMPSEY, Australia (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
In an intriguing inquiry into the role of women in Christianity, author Susan Darling bares thought-provoking insights that challenge previously followed assumptions on gender and religion. “God Has Spoken to Me…” (published by Xlibris AU) dissects the truth from the teachings of St. Paul and puts into question the misconstrued interpretations dogmatically used by some modern-day preachers to subdue women.
“God Has Spoken to Me…” is consisted of two parts. The first part delves into women’s rights, particularly in the church. Darling believes that ‘men are still trying to keep women down by using the Bible in the wrong way.’ Revealing her personal conversations with God, the author shares the divine’s intent to forge equality among mankind, no matter the gender. The second part consists of a mixture of lessons God has communicated to her about upholding women to priesthood and letting priests marry.
“This book, I think, is very important for today’s Christians in particular,” says Darling. “History can repeat itself. I don’t want to see women become doormats because of preachers who are not teaching St. Paul’s teachings properly. God is a loving God who loves everybody equally, not one more than the other, including male and female.”
Honest, direct and stimulating, “God Has Spoken to Me…” offers a compelling take on the role of women in religion. At the same time, it provides readers an eye-opening insight on humanism and the need to advocate for equality, if humanity is to flourish as one virtuous nation with fair and impartial opportunities for all.
