Damaging social contradictions, pervasive patriarchal structure, oppressive gender biases - no wonder women are abandoning formal religions! But our faith is still important to us, leaving many conflicted and frustrated in the quest to cultivate and practice our authentic female spirituality and authority. Jennifer D. Crumpton, author of the popular blog Femmevangelical, takes us on a journey to find the good news in the gospel of Jesus that encourages us to seek a different reality of equality, freedom, and wholeness. These stories and meditations - mixed with theological exploration and a closer look at church history - are dedicated to those who have searched for themselves in the Greater Story and been forced to take on an ill-fitting and soul-killing role to be included. It is a companion for anyone who seeks a devotional book not written to prove a religious ideology or uphold an institution, but to prove and uphold our unique experiences, potential, and worth. Femmevangelical supports the risks, hope, and faith it takes to follow our instincts, create change, and find the God we know exists beyond what we've been taught; and to commit our lives to creating the world in which we were truly made to live.
