This book expressed eloquently what bothers me as a christian regarding LGBTQ movement, sexism and church attitudes towards women. It definitely offered hope and affirmed my worth.

I was looking forward to this book by Julie Roys because I have listened to her radio show on occasion and have appreciated her contemporary Christian perspective on the various subjects she covered. She didn't seem to acquiesce to norms, religious, social or political. So I was expecting this book to be of the same vein. However, in Redeeming the Feminine Soul there was no surprising vision for womanhood it was just newer, updated fodder for "a woman's place is in the home."
God did design man and woman in His image and I agree that each gender does reflect a part of the essence of God. But I don't agree that a woman's inherited essence is solely or even primarily to bear and nature children. God has created women to be capable of many, many things and the desire to do or accomplish things that aren't necessarily "womanly" has no bearing on a woman trying to be masculine or even less feminine, such a woman may just want to -- be. I have zero desire to fight on the front lines in the army and frankly can't understand why anyone would want to but I certainly wouldn't make the assumption that any woman who does is in someway betraying her femininity.
Finally, a radio program host does not a narrator make. She spoke fast and rarely paused for effect or otherwise and there wasn't much variation in the delivery regardless of what she was touching on. Throughout this audiobook I had this vision of Julie Roys standing in front of a classroom reading 100 page research report. That's how it came across to me.
